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.

This is our first Brittany and working with Eric at Smokingun Brittanys was easy and successful. Ranger is a beautiful dog with a wonderful disposition. The vet was very complimentary about Ranger's health and looks. He has adapted well to our pack including 2 other dogs. He is responding well to training. Eric was helpful and communicative and has continued to stay in touch. Our family is in love with Ranger and highly recommends Eric as a breeder.

This was a wonderful experience for our family. Eric was great to work with and his Brittanys are exceptional. We could tell right away that he really cares for his animals. Our puppy is beautiful, as were all of the puppies that were there.

In my search for a good Brittany I talked to several breeders in a three state area. Thankfully I contacted Eric. He took the time to answer all my questions both before I purchased a pup and still responds to all my inquiries about the breed and bird dogs in general. She has gone thru three vet check ups with no issues. At 14 weeks she is impressing everyone we meet with her grasp of basic commands. She has a high drive a fantastic nose and is retrieving a dummy and dropping it on command. Loves to work the thick grass and is very bird aware. Very impressed with this pup as she is teaching me about bird dogs. If your looking for a quality Brittany from a breeder who hunts and knows Brittany's , call Eric today

We would highly recommend Smokingun Brittanys for anyone looking for an American Brittany Spaniel. Eric was from the start informative, answered all our questions, is truly very knowledgeable regarding Brittanys (which we have had our whole lives) and always got back with us promptly. The whole experience was seamless!
Jake was born on April 18, 2018 and we picked him up on June 10, 2018. He is a beauty. Probably the best looking Brittany I have seen! At 3 months now, he can sit, lay down, shake, come, stay, fetch "hunt em up" and return....he also seems to point at anything that flys...he has a nose and a motor that never stops! lol
Thank you Smokingun Brittanys for such a great experience!

Smokingun Brittanys! What can I say! I contacted Eric wanting to get a puppy for my other Brittany gun dog. Eric is very knowledgeable and communicates extremely well. He answered all my questions promptly and kept me updated on my Chance with pictures and email. Upon pickup his kennel was very clean and well kept. Mom and dad were both on site. Chance has great drive, and is very bold. Full of energy and just plain fun. His vet check ups have been great. If you are looking for a great breeder look no further. Eric and his smokingun kennel is top notch. Thanks Eric! Thomas

I searched long and hard for a Brittany with the pedigree behind him to become not only a great hunter but also a family pet, and I was able to accomplish that when I picked up Fin from Eric. Eric's dogs have pedigrees with some of the best Brittanys in history at his kennels so you really can't go wrong if you're looking for a superb bird dog. From the start Eric was helpful and always answered my questions promptly (I had plenty of them). Always kept me updated on future litters and how the pups were doing. The kennel was clean and well kept. The process from start to finish was very easy and thorough. I highly recommend Eric and Smokingun Kennels for your next Brittany.
