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!!!!!

I found Eric through this site and after asking around to people who know gun dogs found he and his dogs/puppies to have an amazing reputation. The statement from a highly respected trainer of many champion dogs was “Eric and his dogs renewed my faith in Britts”. This was the comment when he found out where Fergus was from!
Smokingun Rimfire Fergus is an amazing pup. His markings and build are just beautiful! Constantly getting compliments from everyone. At 12 weeks he is listening (not just responding) to basic commands to the point I can walk him off leash (Come, sit, woah, no, drop it, and toileting command “go outside”) he is very energetic and a great family dog at the same time. His genetics are showing through daily. I will be having him finished with birds starting this summer.
As for Eric, he was an abosolutly amazing breeder to deal with. You can see his passion in his dogs. The dogs he has on site are all great and look in amazing condition. The local vet and vet techs had nothing but great things to say about how he cares for his dogs and pups. Eric was above and beyond accommodating to my request for a final vet visit (I paid, he put in the time and effort). Eric is a hunter and works his dogs in the field.
I have and will continue to recommend Eric and Smokingun Brittanys to anyone in the market. Truly a great and responsible breeder.

We picked up "Smokin Gun's Hundred Dollar Bill" aka Frank, on April 1st. This happened to be the birthday of my first lab "Hedgehog's April Fool" which made Frank even more special. Being my first pointing dog project I wanted to maximize my chances of success and searched extensively for an exceptional breeder with exceptional genetics. Eric was that guy. Frank has exceeded all my expectations with his drive, intelligence, and attitude. Our 11 year old lab is a little undone but he's warming up to Frank as well. I can't imagine a dog with more prey drive and loyalty. School has started with Pigeons and soon Quail and he's yet to disappoint. i am confident that great memories are soon to be made behind this rock star of a Brittany. If your looking for a Brittany look no further than Smokin Gun. You will not be disappointed. Thanks again Eric for a great experience and for your pursuit of perfection in the American Brittany. I couldn't be more pleased!

We bought Duchess from Eric when she was eight weeks old. Eric was super helpful in our buying process and willing to answer any questions we had. I was impressed with Eric’s follow up as well. He contacted us several times after to confirm we were getting our dog the appropriate shots and generally checking on her well-being. We would highly recommend Smoking Gun kennels to someone looking for a fabulous Brittany.
