We are the breeders of two exceptional hunting dog breeds! (The French Brittany Spaniel and the Airedale Terrier) Our French Britney's are very prey driven and extremely biddable and loving, they come from the (arguably,)-(anytime you get to dog people together you're probably going to get an argument LOL) finest hunting lines in the world. Birddog Supreme has a breeding program that focuses exclusively on quality not quantity. With emphasis placed on Intelligence, trainability, lovingness,and boldness! Along with natural pointing ability, natural retrieving ability, prey drive, bird finding talent, and a great nose. Our Airedale terriers also come from first rate hunting lines! I believe Theodor Roosevelt summed it up the best. "An Airedale can do anything any other dog can do, and probably do it better. Our Airedales make excellent hunting dogs or family dogs. All the old timers in our area tell me, " I used to have an Airedale "best dog I've ever seen!" Our Airedale (Tigger) is willing to try anything we ask of her, from ski jorging to bird hunting (including cold water duck retrieves) from coons to coyotes her goal is to make you proud. I always say "you can never go wrong with an Airedale." Our strict breeding policy along with our intensive "puppy program" which took us decades to develop and considered by many to be the best "puppy program"in the country, allows you to get a dog that is well prepared to start its new life with you. Our dogs live In the house as part of the family, and as part of the family there are rules that need to be followed, and work that needs to be done (all our dogs have a job) and lots and lots of love to be shared. If you still have doubts please read some of our testimonials. Call 320-760-3402 Jim or 320-304-3717 Amy

Both my wife and I can heartily recommend getting your next puppy from Jim and Amy. We were heart-broken and devastated after we lost our last dog. We would have traveled anywhere to get the perfect dog. Upon meeting Jim and Amy we knew we wanted our next puppy from them. You can see that they pour their heart, love, experience, insights, and instincts into developing an extraordinary line of beautiful Dogs. // Being an avid outdoorsman, I wanted a joyful and lively dog who could backpack, hike the high peaks of the Adirondacks, and fish with me. My wife is an artist and preferred a dog with a calm, sweet, loving disposition who would be at ease resting peacefully in her art studio as she worked. And of course, both of us wanted a Airedale who would get along with our 7 year-old cat and our other 4 year-old Lab. They met all our expectations and then some. After the litter of puppies was born, Birddog Supreme sent us regular updates and photos so we could see what was taking place. They also sent us home with helpful information on how to raise a healthy and well-adjusted puppy after we brought him home. Best and most important of all, Jim and Amy provided us with a puppy who is special and has a wonderful WOW factor. Simply put, our experience with Birddog Supreme has been absolutely positive and magnificent!

Could not be happier, my husband and I found our baby right here off this site, so it's only fitting that I put up a review here also, (as I read and retread all the reviews on the breeders that I was interested in.) (What a wonderful site) where to start? Well, I think the first place is I should tell you what a wonderful experience we had at BIRDDOG SUPREME Jim and Amy were so very patient with us and took time to answer all of our questions, it was clear upon visiting how much they loved the dogs and more importantly how much time they took with all of the puppies, they were extremely smart and very well socialized. Jim gave us tip after tip on how to get our dream dog, like he kept telling us good genetics is just half the battle, they also need training to get the most joy out of them, but the thing I liked best is when they said this is a lifelong commitment to them and if we ever had questions that all we had to do is call. I was sold. Sorry for rambling on. Please just do yourself a favor and check out BIRDDOG SUPREME you will be glad you did!

I did it again. I loved my first Pup from Birddog Supreme so much I went back for seconds. Just last weekend I brought home a whole new bundle of puppy love known as Neli. I am proud to call James and Amy my friends. They are wonderful people devoted to outstanding dogs. The fur babies come from solid parents and Jim works hard to keep their lines pure and healthy. As for training - wow - the tips he has offered are world class. If anyone out there is looking for a solid hunting dog with a great disposition, I would highly encourage you to talk to Jim at BIRDDOG SUPREME- they really do make Supreme bird dogs!

Jim and his wife are wonderful! When i was first looking for a Puppy he was the first Bone to return my call, answer all my questions, and kept in contact until the litter was born! Communucation was very responsive, we were coming from northern Kasas and he worked with us on days and our travel. Once we got there Jim and his wife were so welcoming, answering all of our questions, and giving us all the info on our new addition!
"Tilley" is now 6 months old and is an absolute doll! She is the smartest little dog. Extremely willing and loyal! Very very easy to train! I am extreamly happy with this little dog, and the "transaction" that went with getting this little one! I have truly found the best companion and i have Jim and his wife to thank! I hope Birddog Supreme is still around when I am ready to get my next one.
Thank you guys!!

5 Stars for sure
My brother introduced me to Jim and Amy after I had a bad experience with an out of state breeder. Working with Jim over the last 1 1/2 years has been a great experience, he got good feel for what I was looking for, a hunting partner and family member with a calm personality. He delivered! She is showing all the traits we were looking for, good nose, a ball of fire at play and bold/cautious. Loves to be with people and gets along great with our soon to be 11 yr old Lab. I can not recommend BIRDDOG Supreme highly enough! Great people with great dogs.

French Brittany Breeder Review; Birddog Supreme - July 2018
I talked to and visited a lot of breeders before choosing to get a puppy from Jim and Amy Massmann at Birddog Supreme. While many of the other breeders would have been a good choice, everyone has to decide who they prefer to work with. For example, not all breeders do training or update their websites/Facebook. When I visited Jim and Amy the first time I was impressed at how well behaved and friendly their adult dogs were. After having a French Brittany puppy for a little more than a month I can see how much time and work has gone into socializing her to a wide variety of people, places, sounds, and experiences. She’s used to being in a crate and takes treats from your hand gently. She’s 13 weeks old now and a ball of happy energy. Jim has a lot of dog training experience and is a great training resource. Altogether I have had a good experience with Birddog Supreme and would recommend getting a puppy from them

I picked up my 8 week old Airedale Terrier (Rio) from Birddog Supreme one week ago and am beyond impressed at how smart and well behaved this little puppy is!
We had a 2+ hour car ride home when we got him and he slept the entire way home. Not a single peep out of him.
Rio comes when called quite reliably and already sits on command. He responds well ("comes") to a whistle also. He is working on leash manners and doing really well there also.
If he cries in the kennel it is brief (under 60 seconds). Most of the time he goes into the kennel without any crying at all.
He quietly usually only cries in the kennel when he needs to go outside for a potty break. I put the kennel in a very high traffic area of the house. He has laid in there quietly with people in and out of the house and with me in the next room on conference calls for work.
He has never had an accident in the kennel which is remarkable for a puppy so young!
As if that isn't all great enough, Rio gets up 0-2 times a night for potty breaks. He goes outside, does his business and goes right back into the kennel (quietly) until morning.
I fully expected to have at least a week of a puppy screaming in the kennel all night long but that has not even once been the experience with Rio.
It is an understatement to say that I am AMAZED at how smart, well behaved, and easy to train he has been so far. We are having so much fun training him and are really looking forward to puppy kindergarten to start in a couple weeks.
Beyond having a great puppy, I feel like we have a great resource in Jim at Birddog Supreme. He has provided us so much great information about the breed and several great training tips that we are leveraging. The puppy packet we got when we brought Rio home contained all kinds of great information.
I have owned different breeds of dogs my entire life but this one is by far the easiest, best behaved, smartest puppy I have had to date.
I would HIGHLY recommend this breeder to anyone looking for a new puppy!

Picked up our first French Brittany puppy from Jim Nov 22 2017 and could not be happier!! With Jim's puppy program she came to us crate trained and well socialized. We were hesitant to start a puppy in November but she has far exceeded our expectations to being in the house all winter. Jim has helped me all winter long keeping her on live birds. Took her to a game farm at 6 months and she pointed and retrieved to hand 9 out of 10 chuckars!! Would not hesitate to purchase another pup from Jim and Amy.

We picked up Bee, an airedale puppy, from Jim after Thanksgiving. We had a 12 hour drive home and she did great. No accidents and no car sickness. She is a very well adapted, outgoing, bold puppy. We wanted a traditional working airedale for varmit control around the house and a companion. Bee will be great at both. She has had a great start with Jim's puppy program, both behavior and health wise. I would highly recommend them as a breeder.
