Bob all I can say is Thank you for putting up with my hour long question and answer sessions!!! My son and I could not be happier with the little big man Zeke (aka) The Zekeanoid😎 We have been doing everything you told me to do with him and it's working ! He is a pointing machine and can't wait to get him up to you for his month long schooling. I have been telling everyone how you handled the rambunctious young dog and had him pointing so quick! Plus I want to thank you again for letting me tag along on the field trial it was a blast! I could tell the way everyone came to you with stories and questions you really were the man like Hap and Sharon said!! Thanks Roger

All I can say is if your looking for a great bred pup Like my Britt pup out of Spice Rums Beckham and Dogwoods Reba Call Bob!!! Super guy to deal with he sent us pics every week of the pups and i burned his ear up on the phone at least once a week. Zeke was born Feb 11 2015 and he is potty trained and retrieving to hand plus there is not a bird that lands in my yard that doesn't get pointed!Bob even let me tag along to watch him work with a young Britt with in twenty minutes that dog was holding his point and was working on whoa.He even let me tag along the next day to a field trial and i have never been and he introduced me to everyone and they treated me as if they have known me for years. What i am saying is he is a top notch breeder of fine dogs and a top notch trainer and a heck of a nice guy! I will be taking Zeke to him in August so that he is on the right track for a great 2015 season.. On a side note my vet asked where he is from and i told him and i asked why and he said and i quote" That is a fine looking dog and well mannered and a perfect example of a Britt.

Emmett is a wonderful addition to our family! Currently, he is 4 months and has had his fourth class of puppy obedience. He is very smart and picks up the command readily. We were looking for a Brittany and after no luck with a number of other breeders, Dogwood Kennel came through. Bob is great to deal with and he genuinely cares for the pups.

Thanks, Bob!

I purchased my pup Ruby from Bob in 2012. She'll be 3 years old soon and what a great dog she is. Natural retriever, great bird finder, awesome drive. She's also been a great house dog. Bob puts a lot of thought into his breeding program and it shows. I know several others who have a Brittany from Bob and they say the same things. You won't be disappointed!

I got a Brittany puppy this past June from Dogwood (Copper) and he is awesome. Very bright and making good progress in the field for such a young age. He is great in the house, rides well in the car and his range is about 50 yards in the field. I think he is going to be a terrific hunter. The folks at Dogwood have been terrific as well. I highly recommend them.

Bob provided the dogs for a preserve pheasant hunt with my son. I was extremely pleased on how each of the 4 dogs worked. It was the best dog work on pheasants that I ever experienced in 35 years of hunting.
