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: Kelly Struhs on Jun 29, 2014We have two Braque dogs from Chequamegons. We got our first girl pup 2.5 years ago from their Blu/Elly litter born in February 2012. We have had our second boy pup home with us now for a week from Blu/Elly's last litter. Both pups have been wonderful. I have nothing but good things to say about Brandon and Kristy Brunner. They are a class act and really make the experience of watching the pups be born and grow and selecting them (all via emails and facebook) very special. We picked up our second pup at their home and it is very clean and impressive, their facilities are top notch. The pups are stunning, truly beautiful dogs, with such natural instincts, fast learners, great family dogs, perfect dispositions. If we had the room, we'd have 10 more dogs from Kristy and Brandon!
Submitted by: Paul Nolta on Jun 27, 2014My Pup Pepper (Ellys Blu Spice of Chequamegons) is from their Nov 2012 litter, I have waited to post a review as I was waiting for the shine to wear off of our new pup. It hasnít! Chequamegons produces pups that are very true to their breed, incredibly smart, quick learners, very loving companions with a strong drive for hunting wrapped up in little package! Watching Pepper and my kids grow and develop their hunting skills in the field has been amazing. Kristy & Brandon Brunner are the best people & breeders that you will ever meet. With them on the East and me on the West Coast, I never got a chance to meet them until I flew out to pick up my pup, however with Kristyís constant communication I left like I had known them for years and they were always there to help. In fact I just spoke with them today, almost 2 years later they are quick to respond and call when I have a training question. If you are ready to bring an amazing dog into your life you canít go wrong with Kristy and Brandon Brunner of Chequamegon's Braque Francais, great people with amazing dogs.
Submitted by: Mike and OraLee Dittrich on Jan 06, 2014Brandon and Kristy Brunner are the best breeders that we have ever worked with. They truly care about the breed (Braque Francais), the quality of their pups are top notch, and the relationships built and kept with each family afterwords means a lot to us as owners. We are blessed to live in the same town as our breeders as many of their pups go long distances to their new homes. We have been very happy with the natural ability of our B.F. and he also is a great companion with our three young children. At only 5 mo. old our pup is trainging for shed hunting and upland birds. He is really doing well. If you are looking for a quality breeder/owner/handler, Brandon and Kristy Brunner of Chequamegon's Braque Francais are extremely wonderful people that are passionate about their dogs. You will not be disappointed.

Submitted by: Marsh and Danica on Nov 04, 2013We recently got a pup from Chequamegon's Summer 2013 litter. Kristy and Brandon are incredibly dedicated and passionate about their dogs, and we could not have had a better experience. We consider our pets a part of the family and would expect no less from our chosen breeder. Their warmth and love of these dogs comes through in all their communications and Facebook posts, which is why we initially chose Chequamegon's. Once we were on the litter list, the level of communication was phenomenal; we were always well informed and kept up to date on Elly's pregnancy, the whelping, and the progress of the pups. From a professional standpoint, the Brunners are wonderful to deal with. We had our pup shipped and they were a huge help in coordinating that process, which went seamlessly.
We would not hesitate to recommend Chequamegon's to anyone looking to add a BF to their own family.
Submitted by: Mike Zajac on Oct 16, 2013From the initial contact to the time we received our Braque Francais puppy, Kristy and Brandon Brunner were everything you would want in a breeder and more. They were very informative through their emails and Facebook. They answered all questions and concerns my family and I had. It was an exceptionally smooth process. I would recommend the Brunners and Chequamegons to anyone interested in owning a Braque Francais. As for the breed itself, the Braque Francais may be the best breed anyone could want. I have two children, 8 and 9 and the dog just adores them. He is extremely social, easily trainable, and very attentive. He wants to be around people at all times. I believe this socialization is inherent of the breed, but also caused by the wonderful care the puppies received from Kristy and Brandon of Chequamegons. As far as hunting goes, the pup has all of the attributes to become a solid bird dog. More importantly, he is a great pet who will bring happiness to my family for many years. If you are thinking of this breed you will be rewarded by the pup you receive from Chequamegons. Thank you Kristy and Brandon Brunner!
Submitted by: Jim Wood on Jun 13, 2013After a considerable amount of researching Braque breeders I confidently decided to go with Chequamegon. Our pup was born in November of 2012 and we picked him up in January 2013. We chose a male and named him Kane. Kane has been pointing any animal that moves for a few months and I have easily conditioned him to loud noises.Obedience traning has been a breeze. Brandon and Kristy have answered any questions that I have had since January and I am confident that they will do so if I have any in the future. I truly can't say anything bad about the breed, breeder or my pup. If you are even considering a Braque Francais you will be doing yourself a great injustice to not give them a look!
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.
