Above is a picture of our Dam, "Dixie Dallas Star", In the field her first season 2005.
We have been breeding AKC American Brittanys Fourteen years now.
As an American Brittany owner, and hunter, my goal is to produce healthy pups that meet the standards of the breed, grow to be average in size, having a great temperment at home and in the field.
I select Sires with a mild temperment, a Blood Line History that will produce pups with strong natural hunting instincts, and the potential to be great companions to hunt with in the field.
For those of you that are not familiar with the American Brittany breed.
Here is a short youtube video about the Brittany breed. CLICK on it.
Our next litter is planned for Late Summer 2021.

Casper is our third Brittany but our first from Rick. We got Casper in 2018 and are very close to getting another pup this fall. if we do, it will be from Rick. He was very accomodating during the process and sent pics and videos as needed. He also talked us through the personalities of the pups. This was crucial since we live in Atlanta, GA but are firm in wanting our pups from Michigan. The thing i appreciated most was that Rick knows what is best for the puppies and always put that first. I feel like one of our pups was separated from his mother too soon and i believe that contributed to his personality permanentlly. i will trust Rick with my next addition to the family!R

We have always had Brittanys and the pup we purchased from Rick in 2018 is one of our best hunting dogs and one of the sweetest. Rick’s Brittanys excel in the field because of their excellent pedigrees and the time Rick and Roxanne take socializing their puppies. We highly recommend them!

I got my Gus in spring 2018 from a breeding of Beckham and Kadi. Gus has been a great companion at home and getting better at hunting every time we are in the field. The instincts are strong with him and as he matures I'm sure he'll be rock solid. Rick was great to work with and kept in touch after I brought Gus home. Already starting to think about adding a second dog and I'll certainly be talking to Rick when the time is right for that.

We picked up Willow in May 2018 after picking her out the previous month. This is our first dog from a breeder and the experience was great with Rick.
When searching for a breeder he was responsive and answered questions (can't say the same of other Brittany breeders). He sent us pictures almost every week of Willow from the time we picked her out to when we picked her up. When we picked Willow up Rick had her ready along with the paperwork and information to get us started raising a puppy (our previous dogs were rescue dogs about a year old). Willow has good hunting instincts (had her out last fall for grouse and woodcock) and has been easy to train. Willow has a great temperament, rarely barks, is good with kids, gets along with other dogs, and our cats. Highly recommend one of Ricks pups.

I purchased Koba (aka Rowdy) from Rick in 2015. Koba is, hands down, the best dog I've ever owned. He has a ton of energy and a great personality. Hunting instincts like I've never seen. Since purchasing him, I've gotten married and my wife has turned him into a big, sweet baby. Now, instead of sitting by my feet in the evening, those two cuddle on the couch. He very rarely barks, which is great. He was very easy to train and listens great even now when we've eased off on the training schedule. Dealing with Rick was extremely easy and professional as well. I am looking forward to this spring when I can bring home sister for Koba. All I can hope is that she will be as good of a dog as he is.

I purchased Rowdy from Rick last fall and he has been a delightful dog. I get complimented on him all the time as a beautiful dog. He is very smart, with excellent hunting instincts and a great prey drive. Rowdy is a very loving and sociable dog, as has been a joy in our family.

We picked up our puppy this weekend from Rick and Roxanne. They were great! They had Tucker all bathed and ready to go. All the necessary paperwork and information was ready too. You can sure tell the puppies are well taken care of, and well bred. We had a four hour trip home and Tucker was very calm the whole way.
We have always had labs and have always wanted a Brittany. I'm so glad my search for one led me to Rick. He shared a lot of information about the breed with us, and gave us many tips on how to raise a healthy, happy puppy. We couldn't be happier!
We've only had him home for two days, but I can already tell he's going to be a quick learner. He has slept through the night with one potty break, and no whining. (I think he likes us!) These are great dogs, and if you're looking for a Brittany, you won't go wrong with one of Rick's pups!!

Kadi and Chase pup...we were excited to hear they are having another litter and rushed to get our deposit in. We have a girl from their 1st litter and regret not bringing a sister home with her. Our girl Addie is the complete package of a Brittany, very loving and great hunting instincts. She was pointing soon after we brought her home. She is the smartest and prettiest Brittany I have seen, she continues to amaze and amuse us every single day.
Rick is a professional breeder, very helpful with any questions we have. He absolutely loves and takes care of his dogs and pups. Rick kept us posted on the litter from the day they were born. We are excited for our next puppy "Isha"

We had always had 2 Brittney's. When our oldest passed away, We were looking for a very special breeder. After we talked to Rick, and checked out all the knowledge and history of raising Brittney's, we had found our breeder. He kept us informed every step of the way. Rick sent us pictures from birth on up. We picked out our pup at 4 weeks, they were all so cute, he let us take all the time we needed. Rick and his wife hand raise all the pups. We could never thank them enough for giving us our newest member to our family.

If I could give Rick's Brittany Kennel a 10/10 I would. I lost my previous Brittany named Diesel to cancer on August 23rd 2013. I knew I was going to get another dog but I didn't plan on getting another Brittany. Once I started to think about it I missed so many things about Diesel, his soft fluffy ears, his amazing personality just to name a few. I finally decided that another Brittany was the best dog for me. I live in Canada and because Brittany's are not common up here the wait lists are long and the cost is almost double. I searched online and saw that Rick's Kennel was having puppies in late September 2013. This was perfect timing for me because it was enough time for me to grieve my other dog but not too long to go without a dog. I contacted Rick to inquire about the puppies and requested a male. I sent in my deposit, which I learned that was refundable if I for whatever reason I could not take a puppy. This showed me that Rick cared about his dogs very much and it's not all about the money like most breeders. Because I lived far Rick was kind enough to send me pictures and weekly updates through e-mail. He even sent me a video of my puppy playing. I went to visit my new puppy at 3 weeks of age and met Rick and his wife Roxane. They were very welcoming to my family and I and we felt right at home with them. Their dogs are just beautiful and cared for so well. The puppies we just starting to be active so we were lucky that we could hold them before they got too squirmy. I went back to pick up my puppy when he was 7 weeks old, normally Rick said he preferred to wait until 8 weeks of age before the puppies go home but he was kind enough to make an exception as this was the only time I could come pick him up. Again we visited with Rick and his wife and played with the puppies until it was time to go. I could tell that it was hard for them to watch someone walk out with one of the puppies but I promised them that he would have the best life I could give him and all the love in the world. Phoenix will be 1 yrs old on September 22nd and has been an amazing puppy. I can't thank Rick and Roxane enough for giving me such a wonderful new friend.
