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. 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 meet 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.

After three months of training Scoundrel was ready to hit the trail He pointed like crazy, listened very well, acknowledged but ignored others on the trail. Someone from Southwest club recommended Steve Epps and I truly appreciate the recommendation. My boy is more amazing than before. Thank you guys for breeding such a fantastic adventure partner.

Hi Don, Some photos and videos for you guys. She’s an incredible dog! Great temperament in the house, great bird drive in the field. Whole family loves her. Couldn’t be happier.

Just got back from my first hunt with Cici since she's been trained. Merns are so much fun to hunt. She did great. Makes me want to get a second dog! She found so many more birds than I could shoot. I need to get to the range.

Hey Don and Linda,

Thank you for the update on the kennel. Erin and I love hearing what is going on at Sage's family home. :)

We are in Kansas these days, spent time in Wyoming for grouse opener, some sharptail in Nebraska, and now quail (maybe Pheasant on tomorrow!) in Kansas.

Attached are a couple of pictures of Sage and her work (hope the email is not too big! HA! We are on Starlink).

We love her more every day.
Cheers from the road!

Bobby, Erin, and Sage

Don, here is Drummer on her first chucker hunt this last weekend. She did a great job overall for a ten month old pup.

Dear Linda,
My name is Howard I currently am still hunting a 12 year old pup sired by Titus and Bella Rose.
Fallon is still hunting well, one of the best we have ever had, but, she is limited to a half day hunt when she goes. In fact she went this morning and pointed two birds. One of which I missed, pulled trigger and click, and one of which my daughter bagged.
I am now in the need of another pup. I would like to sign up for a female puppy from Penny and Teddy.
If you have space available for me, please let me know. I will be happy to send you a deposit.

Good morning Don/Linda,

Sarge is doing great and is a heck of a bird dog. Now that he’s older we’re looking to get him a brother. Just wanted to throw my hat in the ring for any upcoming litters. While I know puppy color can’t be controlled my wife REALLY wants a tricolor male. Let me know if this email will suffice to get a place in line or if I have to fill out an app again.

Take care,

Don and Linda,
I thought you might like to know that Cici passed her Navhda Natural Abilities test in April. It was a challenging day. Very dry, little grass, and windy, all of which made the tracks challenging. A number of dogs didn't pass that day. Here is a photo of a hard point she made on her first bird. She'd doing great. We're now working on retrieve training.

All the best,

Don and Linda,
We just wanted to say hi and convey how great Cici ( Sweet Pea) has been so far. She's been to a number of Navhda events so far, points well and loves to do water retrieves (see the photo from our hike today). She also really has a knack for tracking and is a real sweet heart. Anyway, thanks again.
I hope you're both doing well.

- Michael

Hi Don and Linda, Hope all is well. Just wanted to share some news about Scout. I took Scout quail hunting! He is a good little partner. We have taken him twice. No luck the first hunt, but yesterday we did get into some birds and Scout was high as a kite. I wounded a quail and Scout happily found it for me. Not only did he find it for me but he also chased it down. This quail still had a lot of life and took off running. Scout was on it in a flash and snatched it right up. It peeped and squeak in his mouth but he put a quick end to it. ????. Boy did he have a lot of fire after that!
