About Chequamegon's Braque Francais
At Chequamegon's, we breed, hunt and test Braque Francais.
My wife Kristy and I are from Medford, Wisconsin. We were born and raised here in the Northwoods and enjoy all that it has to offer. Apart from hunting pheasant, ruffed grouse, and woodcock with our dogs, we also deer hunt, fish and ride horses. I have been training dogs and participating in different competitions since 2004 upon my return from Operation Iraqi Freedom.
At Chequamegon's it is our goal to breed not only exceptional Braque Francais dogs for the field, but also dogs that make great pets. The name Chequamegon means "land of shallow waters." The kennel name, Chequamegon's, was a natural fit as we have a cabin in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest where we spend a lot of time relaxing and hunting.
We have both worked outside the home for a number of years and have recently made the decision to have Kristy stay at home full time to better serve our braques and our breeding program.
Please be sure to visit our website and our facebook page, we continuously add more information and keep them both up to date. Thank you!

Submitted by: David Pruet on May 05, 2013I heard about Chequamegon's from a neighbor who highly recommended them to me. This was our family's first dog, and so we were new to the process. Kristy was responsive and all of the info she provided was reliable. She and her husband genuinely care about their pups and about placing them in the right home. We've had ours for almost four months, and she is well adjusted to our kids and is a great indoor / outdoor dog. We can't wait to get her in the field next year. I would highly recommend this breed and these breeders.
Submitted by: Doug Nixon on Jan 28, 2013Great kennel, do there very best to keep you updated on puppy's progress. We have two of there dogs one is just 10 weeks old and the second one is almost two. She is a great hunter , quick to learn and a great house pet. If your looking for a pup I highly recommend this kennel.
Submitted by: kelly struhs on Jun 22, 2012We brought our puppy home to Oregon from Wisconsin two months and one day ago. I cannot speak highly enough about our experience with the Brunners and our love for the new bundle of joy in our family. Living so far away from Wisconsin, we were concerned at the outset of the process of reserving a puppy that we would not know much about the pup until the day we picked her up. Not so. We were updated regularly during the months leading up to the birth and daily afterwards through the day we brought her home. Kristy posted tons of pictures and videos on Facebook so that we could watch the puppies grow and develop. She was constantly available for my questions and to this day has provided fantastic advice and support. The Brunners were very professional and provided the very highest quality of care for the pups. We anticipated that our Braque Francais would be very smart and well-tempered, but we have been amazed every day since Louise has been with us how responsive she is, quick to learn, gentle, confident, and loving...she is so much more than any other breed of dog I have ever known. We feel very blessed to have our puppy and we are already talking about a brother or sister for Louise in the next few years. We hope the Brunners will be breeding for a long time so that we can work with them again. I highly, highly recommend this breed and these breeders.
Submitted by: Rance Perry on Jun 21, 2012We have had Josie for about two months and she is a five month old Braque Francais. Brandon and Kristy Brunner are two of the nicest people we have ever met. You can tell they really love their dogs with the great care and excellent environment that they give to Elly, Blu and the pups. Josie is still very young, but already showing great skill for hunting. She is also very smart picking up on verbal and hand signals. I can not wait to get her into the field to watch her work. I am sure all of her brothers and sister will be excellent as well. I love this breed and the breeders. You can not go wrong with a Braque. I have already had numerous folks wanting her or wanting to know how to get one. Thanks so much to the Brunners for not only a great hunting dog, but also a new family friend for the whole family.
Submitted by: Jim Garrett on Jun 17, 2012I had been researching the Braque Francais breed and breeding programs for about 4 years before making a commitment to Chequamegon's. Brandon and Kristy are at the top of their game. Not only at putting top notch pups on the ground, but also at helping the new owner and pup make the transition into their new relationship.
Our little Braque is 16 weeks old now and making great strides at both becoming a skilled hunter and a wonderful addition to our family.
While it is likely there are Braque breeders producing great pups out there, you'd be hard pressed to find a one more committed to communication with the new owner, with more compassion for the dogs they produce, or with a greater passion for what they do. I look forward watching our pup develop over many great years ahead.
Thank you Kristy and Brandon!
Submitted by: Doug Nixon on Feb 11, 2012Brandon and Kristy breed great dogs. We bought one from there first litter and she has turned out to be a great hunter. If your looking for a smaller pointer that can go all day this is the dog for you, and these are the breeders for you. They don't know it yet but we will be getting one more of there puppies.
Submitted by: S. Frye on Oct 05, 2011Throughout the process of working with Kristy and Brandon to get our puppy and have questions answered both before and after, we received the highest quality of attention and service and it is obvious they care about the puppies very much and take great care throughout the breeding process.
Our boy has a most wonderful and loving temperment and although I have to admit we are not currently training him for bird hunting/retrieving, it is quite obvious to us that his inborn drive for this sport is quite strong as he points on his own....he must know what he is doing even though we don't. I think the time Brandon took him out to watch Blue practice (prior to us getting our pup) our boy must have been watching and learning.
Submitted by: Kevin Osworth on Aug 11, 2011I am unable to put into words the positive experience my family and I had with Kristy and Brandon of Chequamegon's Braque Francais. I doubt you will find another breeder that is as compassionate as they are.The rate the breeder number doesn't go high enough - if we could we would give them a 10!! For not just being only the best but surpassing ALL expectations from a breeder.
My Braque has adapted very well to our family and has been wonderful to our two little girls! His temperament and willingness to learn/please have been amazing.
I look forward to many years of memories in the field with him! Thank you Kristy and Brandon!!!
If you are considering a Braque, look no further than Chequamegon's.
Submitted by: Billy Foley on Jul 26, 2011Brandon and Kristy are great to work with and are very knowledgeable. My little Braque is amazing! Chequamegon's is a top notch breeder and they are very passionate about what they are doing! Thanks Brandon and Kristy!
Submitted by: Buck Steele on Jul 10, 2011Outstanding people to deal with. Will do anything to make your getting a puppy a great experience. We have our little Braque at home now and we couldn't believe how well adjusted and confident he is. Looking forward and honored to work with this dog.
