About Sun Country Bretons-Home of AKC Master Hunters
Since 1995 we have been proud owners of Epagneul Bretons, AKA French Brittanys and producing dogs for the foot hunter as well as family companions. We usually plan one or two breedings each year. We dont just buy a bunch of dogs, slap on a kennel name and breed a lot of pups just to make a buck! Our breeding program focuses on dogs with proven natural hunting ability, proven in health ( all breeding dogs are OFA certified and test negative for the Ay gene that is responsible for the Sable coloration) and have been confirmed by a breed specialist as meeting the breed standard. Our dogs must excel in the field both on wild birds and in test and trials. We don't just claim to have good dogs, all of our breeding dogs hold Master Hunter Titles or are well on their way to achieving it. In fact we have more AKC Master Hunter titled dogs than any other French Brittany Kennel in the United States. Our clients can be assured that puppies we produce come from breeding stock with champion lines, are OFA certified, proven in health, and are proven hunters both on wild birds and in competition. French Brittanys are one of the smallest pointing breeds. Their sweet and pleasing disposition and high level of intelligence make them wonderful family companions. Yet, when the guns come out they are all business! Their fantastic bird sense & drive, natural retrieving and pointing ability, and close working nature make them fantastic upland bird dogs and a joy to hunt behind.

Good morning! Just wanted to give you a puppy update and say hello!
We are now calling Rosebud...Pepper! She is a spark plug and so very smart! She learns fast but also has a stubborn side! She is a comedy show and never stops making us laugh. She has already eaten a couple lizards. She hunts little flying bugs in the yard right before dark. She uses her nose very well already. She has already found a dead bird and a dead kangaroo rat. She has flushed a few covies of quail and she gets so excited. She is definitely starting to search for them. She is a voracious eater. She weighs about 12 lbs now. She loves car rides in her crate. She plays hard and sleeps hard! She is a blast. I hope you guys are doing well! This past week was on the very hot side here.

Hi Don & Linda,

I just wanted to give you an update on Leo and send you some pictures! He is such a joy to have and is so sweet (and crazy lol). He loves everyone he meets and plays so well with the dogs he has met. He was quick to learn his basic commands and is doing great on his leash. We go for long walks every morning and we spent the past week in Flagstaff hiking and enjoying some cooler weather. I am so grateful to you for allowing me to make him a part of my family!

We wanted to give you an update on Poppy. She went to the vet last Wednesday and she weighed 10.3 pounds! She knows her name, come, sit and no. She’s mastered the stairs but can’t quite jump up on the couch. Our wacky rescue dog loves her and they love to play together! Poppy has been a wonderful addition to our family. Pictures will follow.

It has been a long time, but thought you would like to see a picture of our Duncan (Ernie from Rosie's 2009 litter). Yesterday, 4/10, was his 11th birthday and I have attached a couple of pictures. He has started to slow down a little bit over the last year, but overall is doing great. He has two new best friends (in the pictures) that take great care of him and give him lots of love and he is so great with them. Hope you enjoy the pictures and hope you all are doing well. - Kevin

We have decided to name our little boy Prince Yogi. He is just precious. He and Lilly became fast friends and play outside in the grass all day.
Thank you for everything!

Iona is a 5 year old Epagneul Breton. In the US, the breed is commonly known as a French Brittany. While they were originally bred to hunt small game, Brittanys are extremely versatile and excel in most all sports. Iona came to us from Sun Country Bretons. They breed fabulous hunting dogs. Iona is extremely fast and accurate in this sport and has one multiple high it trial placements.
Thanks Don and Linda
