I can't say enough good things about Bluechip Kennels or Jay Parrish. The English Cocker I bought from Jay in 2011 has more than excited any expectation I could have had. The little black fire ball I now call my best friend has done things for me that other dogs 3 times his size would only dream about. The desire, drive and intelligence in Bluechip's lines have blown me away. I could not be happier and would recommend Bluechip Kennels to anyone who wants a great hunting and family dog. When the day comes for me to purchase another cocker it will definitely be from Bluechip.

Unlike the testimonial left before mine, I am not a professional training but have trained 4 Labrador retrievers and 3 Llewellyn Setters. I hunt as much as I can and that often means traveling out of State since our bird population is low in Indiana. My wife and I wanted a house dog that would also be a hunting dog. I had no idea how much of a bird dog I was getting. Today, at four months old our female Cocker, Macy, was introduced to liberated birds for the first time. She hunted hard and located all 6 birds planted and retrieved all four that were shot over her to hand. She sleeps with us and has a great house demeanor. I'd hate to think of life without her and we've only had her for 2 months. Jay has been interested in her progress and helpful in all of her training. He is literally a phone call away and a great resource. Looking forward to a second FBECS from Blue Chip bloodlines.

I am a professional dog trainer primarily training retrieving breeds for waterfowl, AKC and HRC hunt tests and upland hunting. I competed my dogs on the upland circuit in the early 2000's and was fortunate enough to win a National Championship and several other major tournaments. This is where I met Jay and his cockers. As good as I thought my dogs were, Jay and his little dogs sent us home with our tails between our legs on many occasions. Jay and I have remained remained friends all these years and at his and my wife's insistance I acquired a pup(Finnigan) from him last year. Finnigan instantly became one of the favorites around the house, kennels with friends, family and clients.It is hard not to be awed by the loveable personalities coupled with the amount of drive and intelligence these dogs show. After seeing Jays dogs in the upland field all these years I was not surprised that Finny would be the great bird dog that he has become. I was and am totally amazed at what a great little retriever he has become.I put Finnigan thru the same program as all the labs I train and he can stand head and shoulder (even if he is shorter)with the best of them at his age. He is a great marking dog and runs really nice blinds for his age. His intelligence and drive and unbridled enthusiasm is beyond belief. He will run in his first HRC started test next week and with 2 passes will immediatly start running at the seasoned level. I can honestly say, and it is hard being a lab guy my entire life, that this little dog has captured my heart and brought new life to my training program.

I Just wanted to give a little bit of information about the French Brittany that we got from Jay. Jasper was born July 2011, he is a black and white French Brittany. This past Sunday Jasper accomplished his AKC JR Hunter Title. He had an average score of 8 out of 10. Jasper is an outstanding hunter and a loving family dog. It never stops amazing me on how much attention he gets when we go to a hunt test or clinic, People are just drawn to him. Most of the Brittany's in my area are American Brittany, so when we show up with Jasper they like how loving,calm, and how well of a hunter he is. I can't say enough good things about Jay and his Blue Chip line than we will getting another one in a few weeks.

Our liver cocker Annie has far exceeded my expectations. She's very sweet with my family but also very focused on her work. She is a natural retriever, loves swimming and has a tremendous drive. I'm still shocked at how naturally she quarters right in front of me. Jay has been great through this whole process. Jay makes himself available for advice and I've taken advantage of this. It's obvious that Jay is passionate about his work and very experienced. I needed a good family dog that is also a versatile bird hunter and Jay came through! Annie is a serious worker by day and practically demands affection by night.

Well here we are again with another Blue Chip English cocker. Once again Jay has hand picked another pup that already seems to fit the high standards we expect from his dogs in our professional guide string. This little liver male is very smart, a great quite pup, and already is retrieving. Again we cannot say enough positive things about Jay and his dogs. We are already looking forward to the next pup we will be getting in June! If you are considering a cocker from Blue Chip feel free to ask for our number as a reference and give us a call!

This is an addendum to the last post which my wife left. Cody is a special dog, he was born in Jays home, went to a family in Minnesota, the family fell on hard times and had to send Cody back, Jay sent him to a friend in South Dakota who then sent him to a friend in Oregon. It took us about 3 months to find the perfect dog, do we get a puppy or a finished dog. We went the finished route. I found Cody through a few people and found out that he came from Jay. When Cody flew in to Chicago from Oregon he was really skinny and looked ill, we gave him good food and a loving home and he is the best decision in a dog we ever made. Outstanding flusher and retriever and house dog. Im waiting for another dog from Jay. If anyone needs to know anything about this breed, please call me. I love talking about our English Cocker. 815-791-5740

As a pro gun dog trainer and national gun dog competitor and champion, our family is so very happy and excited about our english cocker puppy Mini, that we purchased from Jay.We have never owned or trained a english cocker before,(One of the few breeds that we have not) but what a pleasant surprise! Mini has been retrieving wild mallards 40+ yards across water in frezing Wyoming weather and into heavy cover since she was 4 months old.Mini is also an outstanding upland dog as well,Mini has trailed late season wild ring necks in tough conditions, for very long distances and never gives up and she is only 5 months old.She has un-real natural ability and drive that is out of this world! Mini is very trainable and a great family member as well.What an incredible pup! Thanks so much Jay.

She is already retrieving a tennis ball, sitting, potty trained, and full of energy. I cannot wait to hunt with her.

Oh where to start...My husband Scott and I currently have 7 English Cockers from Blue Chip Kennel. We hunt for our own enjoyment as well as guide upland hunts full-time at Highland Hills Ranch-one of the top wing shooting lodges in North America. Each and every cocker Jay has shipped us has become an incredible hunting dog with a great personality. Each dog shipped to us has been selected by Jay based on what we expect in the field. He has an uncanny ability to send the right dog from each litter. We gladly give our recommendation for Blue Chip Kennel in every aspect.

I live in New Jersey and I received a female English Cocker puppy from Jay in 2007. My son and I picked her up at the airport. She was in excellent shape when she arrived. I took her out of the shipping crate and put her on my shoulder , she bonded with me instantly. My wife suggested Ruby for a name and we all agreed. Well anyway she has been a pure delight to own. She is very smart , funny and a true champion of justice. She likes everything here to be in harmony. My three grown sons turn to jello when she comes around hugs and kisses are always in order and she returns the affection ten fold. Called Jay a couple of times and he was always there for me.

I am actually on my second dog from Blue Chip Kennel and I couldn't be happier. I had my first dog for eleven years and he was a wonderful dog to train and was excellent in the field. My second dog is two now and is becoming another excellent bird dog. Jay certainly knows what it takes to produce great gun dogs. He is very knowledgable about training and always willing to help out when needed. These dogs are a pure pleasure to be around and I will always have a Blue Chip Kennel dog in my house.

Just got a great puppy from Jay. Blue Chip Kennels will be our breeder of choice for our next dog and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a French Brittany.

My family is more then happy with our little guy Sam that we got from Blue Chip Kennels. Sam is such a joy. I would send anyone who wants a pup to them! Thanks once again Jay!!

After seeing an Irish Red and White Setter on the AKC Dog Show, I researched getting a pup. After talking with several breeders, I selected one of Blue Chips pups because of the generations behind them and my comfort with speaking to Jay Parrish. After only two weeks, Lucy(now 11 weeks) is house trained, eager to please, has an exceptional temperment and her coloring is remarkable. She is quick to learn at such an early age which reflects the quality breeding of the dog. Jay's offer to be available for the life of the dog displays the commitment of Blue Chip Kennel. Nothing but the highest recommendation from me!

We bought Innis from Jay and fell in LOVE so we decide we needed to get another from him, a brother for her! and thus came Carrick. He is just a joy, he is SO funny and does the funniest stuff. We love both of our dogs and will be forever greatful to Jay for them:)

I bought "Macy" and black and white English Cocker from Jay back in August of 2008. She quickly made herself a part of the family, and I couldn't be happier. That first year I shot about 12 pheasants over her even though she was only a few months old, and by the end of the season she was flushing and retrieving. This past season she did an excellent job, flushing hard and tracking down runners. With a treat and 5 minutes I can teach her almost anything; she is extremely eager to please. My wife and I had a baby this past summer and she quickly adapted and is now very attached to the baby as well. I will definitely be buying another Cocker from Jay in the future. He is an excellent source of knowledge if you are willing to listen and actually use the advice he gives.

We purchased a french brittany pup for our daughters birthday from Jay in June. We couldn't be happier with our Rosie. She is a great dog and our family is blessed to have her. My husband and son have not taken her hunting yet but she seems to have a great nose, loves to run in the field and woods and is very trainable and obedient. I would recommend Jay's dogs to anyone.

After hunting over English Springers for many years, I was fortunate to get one of Blue Chip Kennel's field-bred English Cockers. Blue Chip Sweet Lady Molly is a delight, both as a hunting dog and companion dog.
My previous dogs were excellent, and I had high expectations for my first Cocker. We are primarily pheasant hunters, but this lil' Cocker breaks ice for late-season mallards! And of course she would go to the ends of the Earth to flush a sneaky rooster.
In addition to being very pleased with the quality of dog I received from Jay, I'm also very satisfied with his training advice after the purchase. I recommend Blue Chip Kennels highly

When our companion Coco-an English Cocker Spaniel-passed away from renal failure in March of 2009, my wife and I knew that we needed to replace the hole in our heart. We went on the internet and found Jay. Working with Jay has been a wonderful and positive experience. He is always available to answer your questions, before and after the puppy has arrived at your home. I have called him several times about potty, nipping, and crating issues. Jay has provided me with much needed expertise about my problems, and was never in a rush when addressing my questions. We received "Charlie Brown" as promised and in perfect health. Charlie was extremely socialized when we received him at eight weeks, and is one of the most popular and friendly dogs at our local dog park. I would highly recommend Jay as a breeder. His professionalism and devotion to responsible breeding make him a wonderful person to deal with and has the dog’s best interest at heart. Thanks Jay for all of your help, and I look forward to working with you in the future during Charlie Browns formative months. Keep up the great work. Please feel free to contact me at fiugrad@bellsouth.net if you have any specific questions about this wonderful breeder.

My family recently had to put down our spaniel. And when it was time for another one in our life we searched about found Blue Chip Kennel! Now we have a beautiful black and white puppy with the cuttest freakles on her body. Her Name is Innis and she is just a joy. So playful, so funny and full of life. Noone can ever replace our dear Amanda, But our dear Innis will have a great place in our hearts for years to come! Jay was wonderful and very helpful. I never hesitated to call or email him when I had a question. Thank you Jay for our wonderful dog!!

I purchased a 9 month old female named Freckles from Jay in November of 2009. I have since renamed her Cami. Cami has been an outstanding dog. I hunted her this past year and could not be more pleased with her 1st season. I also own a 3yr old female German Wire-Haired Pointer named Shiloh. Cami's nose and hunting ability is unrivaled by any dog I have hunted around and I have been hunting pheasants for over 30 yrs. I would recommend Jay's French Brittanys to anyone. Excellent temperment, hunting ability, companion, and very socialable with other dogs. I can't say enough about how happy I am with Cami. The best nose that I've ever seen on a bird dog. Oh, by the way, did I say why she was 9 mos. old when I purchased her? Some goofball said she would not retrieve, yeah right. Cami is one awesome little bird dog. Thanks, Jay.

Cooper is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. I got him in August, 2007 when he was just 8 weeks old. He's the first dog I've ever owned, and now he owns me! He's beautiful, well mannered and intelligent. He's been a joy to train, with very little effort required on my part...I think he was house broken within 6 weeks of his arrival to our home. He's great with everyone he meets, although can be a little shy at times, as is common to the breed. He is especially respectful towards children, which is something that seems to be quite instinctual.
You can't go wrong with Jay's dogs. I have given his name to several people and hope to someday get another puppy from him.

I purchased a male french brit from Jay in February of 2007 and have been absolutely pleased with him. Great nose, perfect disposition. My wife was against getting a dog, and she has since fallen in love with Charley, and my 10 year old and 3 year old couldn't ask for a kinder and gentler dog. I will absolutely purchase another Brit from Jay in the next couple of years. Great dogs.

I picked up my field bred English Cocker from Jay in September of 2007. I was looking for a good companion and hunting dog...he has exceeded my expectations by far! I consistantly get compliments on his appearance, personality and field performance. I've been taking him to gun dog training since spring, and people there far more knowledgable than I, remark that he has great ability... I've even had to turn down offers to buy him! Not for sale at any price!

My family got our (strictly pet) English Cocker Spaniel from Blue Chip Kennel about three years ago, and were given a good discount because of his undescended testicle. He is the perfect dog. He's obedient and willing in the extreme, has a fantastic temperament, and an almost preternatural kind of understanding. He's terribly intelligent - he knows all his toys by name, and frequently picks up on words we haven't taught him. Everyone who meets him wants to take him home. I also understand my family had a great experience with Blue Chip and would buy again.
