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.

I got my puppy (Waylon) from Eric (SmokinGun) in April. He was highly recommended from a friend of mine (Brittany breeder) who has gotten pups from Eric previously. Eric sent me pictures and I reserved my pup immediately! Waylon has a great personality and is an impressive little hunter already. He sits, lays down and points with hardly any instruction. He is a quick learner! I have never had a Brittany, always been a Lab owner but my pup is the smartest of all. I highly recommend Eric and his pups. Looking forward to getting another from him soon!

I love our Brittany Piper. At a young age she grasp everything with ease. She is an absolute sweetheart with our 3 yr old, and she is eager to learn.
Other than her intelligence and mannerisms, her markings are absolutely beautiful. You can tell she comes from great bloodlines and I HIGHLY recommend Smoking Guns.
Beat experience I've had buying a dog!
Thank you Smoking Guns!

I found Eric and Smokingun Brittanys just over 3 years ago and came home with a beautiful Male that was sired by Kid. My Hendrix has been a joyful addition to our family. He is sharp and witty with tons of drive and personality. We are so in love with him that we decided to come back to Eric for another pup. To our luck, he was about to have another litter sired by Kid and the stars couldn't have aligned any better. We just got our Page about two weeks ago and to say that she is a dream is an understatement. She is beautiful, smart with a heap of attitude that we just love! Great demeanor and disposition and very eager to learn. Eric takes huge pride and principle on the way he breeds and cares for these dogs. He is and will be my go to guy for Brittanys no doubt about it! My family and I are extremely thankful to have found Eric and Smokingun Brittanys!

I purchased a 9 week old Brittany puppy from Eric in March from a recent litter. Trena is healthy has an easy going temperament, house broke quickly, quiet in the crate, and willing to Learn and please. She is beginning to point and retrieve at 12 weeks.
Eric is very willing to work with throughout the selection process.
I have known Eric for several years and he was the first person I contacted for a Brittany puppy.
Looking forward to hunting and entering Trena in field trials this fall

I have been breeding and showing Papillons for 16 plus years. My friend Sissie Harper wanted to buy a companion Brittany for her son for his birthday. I am very familiar with breed standards and often see the Brittanys in the show ring. As soon as we found pictures from Smokingun Brittanys, I knew we had to go and see them. Often pictures can be misleading, but NOT this time!!!! His dogs are beautiful, well cared for and so very very sound! Henry, the Brittany that came to Tennessee has the best disposition of any that I have seen, so so sweet and loving. His head, top line, front and rear are so very correct from the conformation stand point. He could easily be very competitive in the show ring. I would certainly recommend this breeder!!!!!
