Eric’s dogs are from the best Brittany bloodlines in the country. I have owned Brittanys for over 25 years and last year when I started looking for a new pup, Smokingun was at the top of my list. Bonnie turned one year old this past October while on a hunting trip to Wisconsin. After busting a few grouse, she quickly learned from her mistakes and pointed her first grouse of many on the trip. Bonnie is sweet, smart, energetic, full of personality and loves birds!

Eric is great to work with and I highly recommend Eric and his pups.

We picked up Phoebe Jane, our 3rd Brittany baby, and second pup from Smokingun Brittanys in December of 2019. She's been a doll from the very start and completed our family beautifully. She has the typical Brittany personality and smarts we have grown to love with her own quirks that make her special, and we couldn't be happier with our latest addition. Eric, as always, was a pleasure to work with, and always responded quickly to my many questions. Phoebe Jane is the smallest of our 3, but don't tell her that-she definitely doesn't know-small, but fierce ;-)

My husband and I picked up our sweet little Abby this past July. We have always been avid bird hunters but never had a bird dog of our own. Not having any experience with Brittanys, we did our research on the breed and spoke with some breeders and found Eric with Smokingun Brittanys. Best decision we made!! We drove 15 hours from NH to NC to pick her up, Eric was so kind and nice to work with and really showed us how much he cares about his dogs. Abby has been a wonderful puppy - she is healthy, very sweet, and has already shown to have incredible natural ability for hunting...between flushing grouse/woodcock around our house and getting a taste of NH north country grouse hunting on weekends. She is an extremely smart girl with a lot of determination. She is so sweet to everyone she meets and loves our rescue dog Lucy to pieces - and Lucy loves her just as much. To be honest after we got Abby, we strongly considered taking another road trip and getting another puppy from him this year...maybe not in the next year or two but it is definitely a consideration for the future. Eric has been so good about staying in touch with us on Abby’s progress, once again showing how much he cares about the well being of his dogs. It was a big decision for us but we have absolutely no regrets and are so happy with our girl!

My coworker purchased a Brittany from Eric 7 years ago and I fell in love with her dog as she was allowed allowed to bring him to work. I asked her who the breeder was and what was the chance of me getting a pup. I reached out to Eric and the stars aligned and he had a litter that was ready. Drove 6 hours round trip to pick out our pup "JuJu" and what an amazing experience thus far. Our vet is in love with our dog and has rated our pup "Ideal" which is 10 out of 10 stars.
Incredibly smart, healthy, loving and energetic and the most amazing companion! Highly recommend Eric as he is a great breeder and a very decent man at heart.

After much thought and research my son and I decided on getting a Brittany. We researched different breeders and Eric Lowman came highly recommended. After researching Eric and reading reviews and looking at his dogs we knew we had found the right fit for us! My son and I drove 2 1/2 hours to pick up our little girl. When we saw her our hearts melted. Our “sweet southern Sadiebug” was ours! She has blesssed our lives during these uncertain times during this pandemic. Because of that we had one on one time and we’ve been able to spend so much time with her. Thank you so much Eric. We just love our Sadiebug.

I brought Renly home back in May and this review is a long time coming! He is such a happy dog at all times - loves other dogs and people! He gets to go practically everywhere with me and visit the college students I work with. He is now about 8 months old and incredibly smart - he is currently in classes to work on his therapy certification (several months to go) and is the star of the class. He will do just about anything if it gets him attention and praise. If you're curious as to what Renly looks like - instagram @Renlypup

So happy to have found Eric and his dogs when researching back in the spring!

Decided enough time had passed and it was time to once again have a Brittany as a hunting companion and member of the family. I did some research and found that Eric’s pups had the bloodlines I was looking for (both my previous male and female’s sires were in there…although several generations back). Eric was extremely helpful in providing information and answering all my questions. We arranged for a time and I drove down to see the litter and pick out pup. I left thinking that I really couldn’t have gone wrong by picking any of those pups…they all looked like future masters of the field!

When the pups were old enough at the end of July, I made the drive back down from Pennsylvania to bring Parker home. I’ve been extremely happy with him…he’s big, he’s very smart (sometimes too much so for his own good…you know puppies!), he’s “birdy” and he’s a great all-around family dog. I’ve owned several Brittanies in the past, in comparison Parker seems to be maturing (housebreaking, socialization, etc.) earlier than my previous dogs.

Eric has kept in contact and cares about his pups. He’s also a great guy to swap dog stories with. I can recommend SmokinGun Kennels to anyone looking for a Brittany pup. Actually, Parker has been the one doing most of the recommending…everyone who sees him and plays with him for a bit, wants to know where they can get one for themselves. Thanks Eric!

We got our second puppy, Cooper, from Eric late-July. Now a little over 3 months old, he’s showing that he’s super smart, gets constant compliments on his beautiful markings, and is picking up his training with ease (house training / general manners, etc.) The vet was impressed at his first appointment with how healthy he was and the detailed records we were sent home with. Cooper has a very sweet disposition, and we’re looking forward to seeing him grow up into a beautiful, loving family dog.

Our first pup, Ellie, we got from Eric almost 6 years ago, and though that entire time, Eric has kept in contact with us - genuinely interested and invested in knowing how his pups grow up. When we considered getting a second pup, we couldn’t imagine going anywhere else - even though we had moved and had to drive nearly double the distance to pick Cooper up.

Eric has always answered my (many) questions, is very knowledgable about pups/dogs, and been super prompt with his response. Honestly, I cannot imagine a better experience purchasing a Brittany pup.

We got our puppy, Taffy in April. From the moment we picked her up she was and is the sweetest and fun puppy. We had a kitten at home and they hit it off immediately. They play and sleep with each other every day. I take her every where and she is easy around everyone. Extremely smart! I get so many compliments on her markings and look. Will definitely go back to Eric for our 2nd pup in the future.
