Gun Dog Breeder Reviews for Beaupre Gun Dogs
Testimonials (12) | Back to Beaupre Gun Dogs
Submitted by: Heidi Hurtis on Mar 28, 2014We were looking for a brittany last summer and our normal breeder fell through. We stumbled upon this site and decided to call and visit the Beaupres. Not only do they have some amazing dogs, they are fantastic people. Sue spends a lot of time learning the puppies personalities to match them to each family and their needs.
We've had a couple brittanys before, but none of them excelled in hunting birds quite like our dog (Gus). He was retrieving birds at 5 months old. Not to mention, he's a beautiful dog. We have people ask us what kind of dog he is, and most of them can't believe he is a brittany because of how pretty he is.
Gus also is the sweetest and most loving dog we've had. Our next brittany will for sure come from Doug and Sue.
Submitted by: jim zakrajsheck on Nov 19, 2013Doug and Sue sold me a great little girl. She is playful and friendly at home and a little bundle of dynamite in the field.
Doug and Sue are the kind of breeders one can only hope to find.
Submitted by: Brody Kidd on Nov 12, 2013Doug and Sue are absolutely amazing! I came across Beaupre Gun Dogs on a recommendation and that was one of the best recommendations I have ever received. I was lucky enough to snag one of the last slots in their most recent litter.
Doug and Sue truly care about their dogs and consider each one of their pups a family member for life. The passion they display for their dogs says enough.
Harvey (patch) is now almost 6 months old and he has been the most amazing pup! Sue has conditioned these pups to love unconditionally and Doug has them trained to hunt from the get-go. I just took Harvey hunting for the first time and was the proudest parent at the club! His natural abilities go above and beyond.
Thank you for providing me with such a loving friend that can't wait to please me with plenty of birds! You can't ask for much more!
Submitted by: Cameron Chisholm on Sep 27, 2013I am so fortunate to have found Beaupre Gun Dogs and the great people behind the name Doug and Sue. You cannot get a better breeder and kennel, hands down the best. I knew I was going to get the best from the time I went to the open house to get matched with a puppy and meet the parents. Doug and Sue have a wonderful and inviting kennel which is paired with extremely caring and extremely knowledgable Breeders/trainers. It was 8 years since my last Brittany so Doug and Sue trained me for almost 2 hours, wow!
Since taking Musashi home I'm just amazed how intelligent, eager to please, loving, bird loving, brush bashing, driven dog I have everyday. Icing on the cake, I didn't have to break the bank to get this whole package deal.
When I am looking for my next hunting dog I will look no further then Beaupre Gun Dogs. Thank you Doug and Sue for this absolute treasure of a dog, Musashi.
Submitted by: Rusty & Debbie Glaser on Jun 05, 2013My Husband, daughter and I had a Brittany who left us 6 years ago. We waited just to make sure we were ready for and other dog. So we decided on TWO male Brittanys. I found breeders as far away as Utah and Canada. But The Beaupre's were recommended.
So after submitting our application and meeting Doug and Sue as well as the future birth parents of our prospective puppies. We were all on board. It is so true what everyone says about Doug and Sue. They are like family ( the good side ) the moment you meet them.
So on March 4th 2013 I get the message that my Willie and Nelson were born. I received a video of them the day they were born. When I saw Sue with those puppies I knew they were in the best of hands.
As I write this my boys are 3 months old and we are so in love. Our vet was amazed at how calm and unafraid they were on their first visit. She said the breeders must be fantastic.
Thank you Doug and Sue. Willie and Nelson cant sing country music but they sure make our hearts sing.
Submitted by: Paul Stengel on May 12, 2013"Amazing" is the word we would use to sum up our experience with Doug and Sue. We currently own 2 Brittanies and were looking to add a third to our "pack" and were hoping to get a male. We originally tried to obtain one through a breeder different breeder and were in line to get one of the first picks, but when the breeding didn't take, he recommended Beaupre. At first we were hesitant because they said we were 6th on the list and someone had already wanted 2 males. They also said we didn't get to pick our puppy but they would match personalities. They reassured us that they would all be good dogs. Doug and Sue invited us to meet the perspective parents, and we were completely impressed with their knowledge, devotion, and love of their dogs.
Doug and Sue kept us up to date on the pregnancy and birth. We kept in touch with the pups progress. The breeding produced 8 pups with 3 males. We were still reluctant knowing that we didn't really have the say in which one we'd get. However, Doug and Sue are so honest, caring, and the love of their dogs was so obvious, that we had complete confidence in their advice.
They had an Open House when they brought some dogs and the owners of the previous litter in after about 6 weeks. Doug and Sue also posted photos online of the dogs over the complete process. When we saw the one they were guiding us toward, we were still hesitant because he was so small and shy looking. They encouraged us to visit again to get to know the puppies. They said they wanted us to be completely sure we wanted him because they really thought he'd be a good fit in our home. If not, we could pick from the next litter.
We visited the puppies 2 more times, and our confidence grew. I must add that every time we visited, we stayed for 2 hours. Doug and Sue are so friendly and easy to talk to that you felt like you have known them for years.
The day finally came for us to take Finley home, and we couldn't be happier. Besides knowing what good hunters his dog parents are and being an absolutely gorgeous dog, he has the foundation laid for being trained. Finley is completely used to noises, people, and other dogs.
The love, care, and attention that Doug and Sue used to raise these puppies with is exactly what you would want to see in a breeder. Not only do we have an absolutely perfect dog, but we truly feel like we will keep in touch with Doug and Sue for years to come. We cannot recommend Beaupre Gun Dogs highly enough.
Submitted by: Mike Steinke on Aug 29, 2012Simply put, Doug and Sue go above and beyond!
After meeting them last January, it was obvious they are both passionate about this breed, their dogs and the sport in general. As soon as the pups were born, we received weekly updates, pictures and an open inventation (and encouragement) to visit the pups as much as possible. Our pup is 6 mo old now and he is well on his way to becoming a great gun dog. After taking our pup home, both Doug and Sue offered to be available for questions and training tips and invited us to join them in the field on several occassions. Not only did we get a great pup, but we have become good friends as well.
Submitted by: Mark Vandenberg on Aug 13, 2012We got our now six month old male Brittany from Doug and Sue. After talking with several other breeders they didn't come close to givng me the feeling that I got after talking with Doug and Sue. They allowed us to visit the pups as often as we wished and were accomodating. They are a first class operation. They spent time with the puppies holding them and getting them used to having their paws, ears, teeth touched. We are still in contact with them and they have helped us in the hunt training. As a first time gun dog owner that has been awesome.
Submitted by: Mike Wasilisin on Feb 02, 2012I had 2 requirements when searching for our Brittany
1) Excellent Bloodline
2) Excellent owners
Our brittany is 2.5 years old and does not only have unbelievable bird instincts but is the sweetest and most intelligent dog on the planet (we are biased). At 6 months old she pointed and retrieved a quail that dropped into heavy brush in a 80 foot canyon. This is a lifelong memory and brought tears to my eyes. I am still in constant contact with Doug and Sue and they are both nothing less than amazing. I rate them as picture perfect and these puppies are a steal at $10,000 or less.

Submitted by: Joshua George on Jan 30, 2012Not only did I receive a bird crazy pup but I also received the training I needed from the Beaupre's to put a ''steering wheel'' on what the pup already knew. I have never had a breeder take so much of their own time to make sure I had the knowledge to work with my new best friend. They also introduced me too some fantastic people who were also brittany owners who quickly became our friends. Top notch pups and people.
Submitted by: Art Eichmann on Jan 26, 2012The Beaupre's run a 1st class operation, from the time the puppies are born and long after is a great experience with a Beaupre puppy! I purchased a puppy form them 3 years ago this April and have had a great hunting partner ever since and the Beaupre's have been a big reason why from supplying me with a great dog with a great blood line to training prior to me even taking the dog home, teaching me the Silent Command Training System, field training/hunting behind the mother who is an awesome hunter, to taking care of my dog while I am away,etc...
Doug and Sue Beaupre are quality people who love what they are doing and it shows with the dogs and support they supply from day one and has continued throughout.
My highest recommendations go to this breeder/kennel!!!!
Submitted by: Tom and Benita Gruszynski on Jan 24, 2012We got our dog Maggie from Beaupre kennels. She is a great hunting dog and also our family pet. We have been very happy with her. The Beaupre's run a really nice kennel. They are very helpful with training Maggie to hunt. We have gone to several trainings with them, including the silent gun dog training. If you are looking for a good gun dog you can't find anyone better than the Beaupre's. They are an outstanding Kennel in our opinion.
