After researching various pointing dog breeds I decided that a French Brittany was the one that my wife could live with in our home and provide me with the companion dog and potential hunter that I wanted. After being married for almost 35 years we had never had a dog in our life. I talked with several breeders but felt the most comfortable with Kristi. I had the opportunity to visit Bobwhite Place and was impressed with Kristi's setup. From the very beginning Kristi was so easy to work with and wanted to make certain that we were completely satisfied. We brought 8 week old Farley LeFevre into our home June, 2010. Admittedly, getting used to a puppy in the house was a challenge. But my wife (who was definitely not a dog lover)and I fell in love with Farley. He is such an affectionate dog, getting along well with other dogs and people. I think that he is the Will Rogers of dogs (never meeting a person he does not like). He is so easy going and has adjusted to our lifestyle so well. He adjusted well to the crate and housebreaking was quite easy with him. I am in the process of helping him to develop his instinctual bird hunting skills. He is responding well and I am excited.
Farley has become such a part of our family that my wife and I wonder what we did before Farley. I do not think that we could have gotten a better puppy and we highly recommend Kristi as an honest, knowledgeable breeder who cares very much for her dogs and takes care of her clients (who quickly become friends) quite well.

I just want to say how thankful we for Kristi and her family. I got a French Brittany puppy, Forest Rose, from Kristi last May for my husband as a surprise anniversary gift. We could not be happier with her! My husband was thrilled to have her and was pleasantly surprised when she retrieved 4 doves for him on only their second trip hunting with little to no training.
Kristi has been very helpful all along the way; starting from time we first spoke and continuing on today. I could tell from the that first conversation the she truly cares about her puppies and wants the best possible homes for them. I am grateful for all personal care and attention each and every pup gets from Kristi and her family, it made for an easy transition to our home.
We look forward to may years for happiness with our Forest Rose!

We currently have 7 month old Brittany, Lucy. She is the best dog we could have asked for!! Kristi was a great help as well! She was so understanding and flexable and without her, we would never have been able to add Lucy to the family. Kristi's French Brittanys is a fantastic breeder! Kristi keeps in touch, and she is always there if you have questions or concerns. Over the last 3 months we've had Lucy, Kristi has been right there with us the whole time!If anyone is thinking about getting a dog from here, I would most definately reccomend it to anyone who asked without hesitation!! Kristi and all of her pups are amazing, and you will definately be pleased with your new addition to the family! (:

We love-love-love our French Brittany. His name is Zephyr. He is a high energy dog and VERY well balanced. He has the best temperament- just the SWEETEST dog ever! He is also very smart and loves training, running along the bike, playing in the yard, riding in the car...He has a natural instinct for the birds and has no problem looking up and no noise sensitivity issues. Oh yes, and he is BEAUTIFUL! Kristi has impeccable taste for beautiful dogs. He was crate trained and house broken when we got him. He also knew sit and down commands. He loves his food and dog treats, and he is a good eater. Did you guess? We're crazy about him.

I can honestly say that Kristi (Kristi French Brittany's) is beyond a shadow of a doubt the most honest breeder that I have ever had dealing with. Everything she told me about ICE was right on. He has a great temperament, super with the kids, great disposition, crate trained and a real lover. My wife had to agree with me that of all the dogs we have owned over the years ICE is by far and away the most lovable and intelligent. I can not imagine how anyone can go wrong acquiring a dog from Kristi.

Our Sophie girl is now about 14 months old, and we coudn't have asked for a better dog. She has been a joy, and I look forward to coming home from work everyday just to see her. She is sweet, smart, energetic, eager to please, and absolutely beautiful. She goes just about everywhere with us, and everyone that meets her falls in love. People are amazed at how well she listens for such an energetic (and young) pup. She is excellent with kids and other dogs. She is very confident, not easily intimidated yet not aggressive.
Kristi did a great job socializing her and starting potty training. When we picked Sophie up at 8 weeks old, she was already 90% potty trained (I think we only had 3 accidents). We have since trained her to ring a bell to ask to go outside, and she learned in just 1 weekend!
I am not a hunter, but it is fun to watch her in action... running, stalking and pointing. She makes me want to develop her skills further and maybe take up field trials.
French Brittanys are awesome and I would highly recommend Kristi's French Brittanys, her pups get care and attention that most other breeders cannot afford to give. You can tell that Kristi is genuinely concerned for her pups' well being and continues to stay in touch with us for occasional updates and photos. We will definitely contact Krisit if we decide to further expand our family.

We picked up our French Brittany "Lilly" when she was 8 weeks old from Kristi. While we were searching for breeders, one phone call to Kristi's Bob White Place Brittanys was all it took for us to know how different she was from the other breeders we had talked to. Throughout our visits, all the puppies and their pens were clean, well kept and comforatble looking. The puppies all looked healthy and alert. The parents were on site and seemed healthy and friendly. Leading up to the day we picked up Lilly, Kristi kept us informed on Lilly's progress through email and phone calls. When we picked up Lilly Kristi made sure she was ready to go. Kristi had bathed her and trimmed her nails and sent us with a care package full of treats, toys and training aids to get us through the first few days. Kristi sent us home with all of her health records which showed all shots and vet checks were up to date. She supplied us with the paperwork for AKC registration, which made it simple. Lilly is now going on 7 months old and doing great. Kristi still checks in periodically to make sure Lilly is doing well. We highly recommend Kristi's Bob White Place Brittanys for anyone looking for an affordable, happy, healthy and very loving addition to their family.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU. We received "Ripley" via air mail from Kristi and could NOT be happier. A STUNNING looker, a bright tri-color and smarter than he is good looking (that's saying something). A hard working and enthusiastic hunter. He is a "natural". Quarters into the wind (in range) CRASHES THE WATER, gorgeous pointer and an automatic retrieve, without bidding.
I have trained him to "come" and "heel", oh, and "kennel" with no effort or correction. All the rest...just good genetics. A TON of fun to watch work. My affectionate BFF aims to please. A delightful personality, VERY ENERGETIC. Get's on great with our other dogs, my old springer and my wife's cavalier (yes, that's why his name is Ripley) 3rd Dog. We are having fun. Kristi is awesome and so are her dogs, or at least this one! I'm Available as a reference.
