I live in Washington state and contacted Eric about one of his litters he was advertising back in may. Eric was extremely helpful and fast to respond with sending pictures, pedigrees, and answering all questions a guy could ask about getting a puppy sight unseen. Eric went above and beyond having the pup shipped and was very trustworthy with everything. Now about the little girl we got from him, there’s only one word to describe her and it is “natural”. She is about 14 weeks old now and shows everything you could ever want out of young puppy. Her first training session she showed no hesitation with gun fire and retrieving the pigeons to hand with nice body holds and confidence on the very first bird interaction. She has the most beautiful point, coat, personality, drive, and so damn intelligent. If your debating on getting a puppy from him do it you won’t regret it! I can’t wait for this hunting season with her. Again Eric if your reading this thank you my family and I are so happy with her.

We picked up Rush on May 28th and we could not be happier. He is our 6th dog and second Brittany, and has by far been the best puppy. He has a natural retrieve, and plenty of drive, but is laid back and easy to manage in the house. Sleeps through the night from day one in his crate and fit in perfectly with our four current dog’s ranging in age from 3 to 14 with a wide array of energy levels and play styles. He is extremely confident and outgoing without being pushy or dominant. We do hunting and therapy work and I am confident he is going to excel at both! Eric was extremely helpful throughout the whole process to make sure we got a dog that would match our needs. We couldn’t imagine a better fit for a breeder and a puppy!

We just bought a Liver Brittany from Eric and had the best experience!! He was so kind and caring and you can tell he loves all of his dogs. He continued to follow up with us asking for pics of our new puppy after we took her home. We have already recommended him to multiple people we know. We had a great experience!

When we decided it was time for another Brittany, there was only one choice for us: Eric Lowman/Smokinggun Brittanys.

Eric’s commitment to the American Brittany is second to none in my opinion. He is always available to answer questions and checks in on the pup over the first several weeks.

Oliver is doing great — healthy, smart, and a great addition to our family!

We found Eric because we were not impressed with other breeders closer to us in Virginia. Eric spoke hunting dogs not show dogs even though his dogs are beautiful Brittanys. We picked up Hickory and have been delighted with him completely. At 6 months he retrieves duck dummies in moderate chop and won’t quit. He performs all of his basic commands nicely. He begins collar conditioning to the E-collar next week. He is great pointing live pigeons. He is bird crazy.

I cannot rank this breeder or his dogs high enough! From the moment our little girl was born, Eric was kind enough to send updates and photos so we could learn about his latest litter. We were lucky enough to get one of his Liver and White females and she is AWESOME. She is very smart, active and eager to learn. She loves to please her people and gets along wonderfully with our Lab. At only 11 weeks, her training is coming along beautifully. She is vivacious and fun and we couldn't be happier with our latest family member. Would 100% recommend to anyone who is interested in this wonderful breed from a fantastic breeder.

You will not find a better Brittany or breeder anywhere in the country.
We put in a reservation for our orange female a year in advance. When the time came he only had 1 orange female and many people asking for her. Not only did he honor us with our pick, he also honored the price he had told us (which had increased over the year).
Eric continued to check in with us over the first months and was always willing to answer questions and offer suggestions.
Last week he sent me the contact of a local trainer. The trainer spent an hour on the phone with me and went on and on about how many of Eric’s dogs he had trained and how they have made some of the best bird dogs.
Our Brittany is beyond smart and energetic. I can’t wait to see how she hunts.
Cannot say enough about Eric and his dogs!

I did my homework and everything kept coming back to Eric and Smokingun Brittanys. We have had several conversations in the weeks after I picked up my puppy about progress and health care. Our puppy is very smart and bold with an extremely good nose. I Highly recommend Smokingun Brittanys.
