Prairie Prime LLC - Oklahoma Epagneul Breton Breeders
About Prairie Prime LLC
Prairie Prime LLC is an Oklahoma based agribusiness providing integrated hunting solutions for the modern day upland bird and waterfowl hunter through ownership of the Epagneul Breton gun dog. Prairie Prime's breeding dogs have been proven in the field and water and are health certified in order to increase the likelihood of producing offspring inheriting excellent health, temperament, hunting ability, and conformation. Our versatile dogs live an active lifestyle outdoors serving as our upland and waterfowl gun dogs a minimum of 60 days per season and otherwise are with us indoors as family companions. If you are looking for a versatile gun dog bred by avid upland bird and waterfowl hunters that demand the best from their dogs in wild bird environments and in their home you have come to the right place. We do not "trade" in dogs and we only produce 2-3 litters per year. We absolutely value the lives of the gun dogs we have in our home and consequently make careful evaluation of any dog prior to making them a forever family member. It is because of this fact that we do not call our business a kennel. Our dogs are part of our family. They hunt with us, live indoors with us, travel with us, and are an important part of the lifestyle we live.
I would like to provide some background with my experience with the Epagneul Breton. I enjoyed watching the dog work so much as a new upland bird hunter in my early 40's that I began searching for a versatile pointing dog and retriever that would meet my needs not only as hunting companion but as family dog in the home. The search led me to the Epagneul Breton. In a brief period of time I became an EB enthusiast promoting the smallest of the pointing dog breeds at every opportunity. My family and I are primarily upland bird and waterfowl hunters enjoying the camaraderie of other Epagneul Breton owners. My goal with Prairie Prime LLC is to bring new hunters to the upland bird and waterfowl hunting lifestyle through education and conservation. And also to bring new owners to the Epagneul Breton gun dog breed through breed awareness, Prairie Prime LLC puppies, and access to our regional breed club.
I founded the Chisholm Trail Epagneul Breton Gun Dog Club (CTEBGDC) in the fall of 2015 and currently preside as President of the CTEBGDC serving the states of Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Missouri, and Arkansas. The club hosts specialty and conformation shows, training events, and UKC sanctioned field trials. The CTEBGDC
facilitates a digital presence for the promotion of the Epagneul Breton with a website www.chisholmtrailebclub.com and a Facebook page. I also served on the Club de l'Epagneul Breton of the United States (CEB-US) Board of Directors acting as the national club Secretary from May 2016 - May 2019 and as membership director guided the CEB-US to 85% membership growth over 3 years. I serve on the Board of Directors for the CEB-US for the 2022-2025 term. I maintain annual memberships in the NRA, Quail Forever, Pheasants Forever, National Wild Turkey Federation, Ducks Unlimited, a supporting membership in the CEB-US, and a premier membership in the CTEBGDC. In addition to being a life member of Quail Forever I am a Gold Donor to the Epagneul Breton Foundation and currently serve as Chairman of this 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation tasked with educating the public about the Epagneul Breton and in funding educational, scientific, and charitable projects related to the Epagneul Breton gun dog breed. I am an annual donor to the NRA Hunting initiative to protect the sport of hunting in the United States and serve as a UKC licensed TAN and WRT field trial judge to the EB community. I commit Prairie Prime Epagneul Bretons to the guidelines for breeding practices of the CEB US to ensure the betterment of the breed in the United States. Prairie Prime is a registered breeder listed with the CEB-US by committing to the official policies on canine hip dysplasia and sable coat color. I have been a strong stakeholder in the Epagneul Breton in the United States by creating breed awareness with the upland hunting public at venues like Pheasants Forever's Pheasant Fest and Quail Classic trade shows in Kansas City and Minneapolis and also in organizing and participating in Scott Linden's Wingshooting USA television episode that showcased the Epagneul Breton breed on opening day of Iowa's pheasant season in the fall of 2016 airing on national television in August of 2017. A second episode of Scott Linden's Wingshooting USA featuring the Prairie Prime Epagneul Bretons aired nationwide in July of 2018. Prairie Prime Epagneul Bretons kennel was also featured in Gun Dog Magazine in the March/April/May 2018 issue showcasing the Epagneul Breton gun dog breed.
In 2021 Prairie Prime LLC opened a wingshooting club in central Oklahoma that is membership based catering to the gun dog owner. The club encompasses 640 acres of prime habitat for upland bird and waterfowl hunting. The club is designed to be a proving ground and showcase setting for the versatility of the Epagneul Breton gun dog breed. Dog clients of Prairie Prime LLC have access to the ranch for hunting, training, fishing, etc.
Prairie Prime LLC is committed to producing premier Epagneul Bretons for the upland, the duck blind, and the home. It is our opinion there is no better gun dog than the Epagneul Breton for our geographical region of the United States that better serves the needs of the modern day bird hunter. Today's bird hunter is becoming more demanding in their desire to own a versatile gun dog that serves as an upland pointing dog, dove retriever, waterfowl retriever, and indoor family dog. The Epagneul Breton breed is not only an amazing upland pointing dog for the foot hunter but it has the natural ability to excel in the dove field as a retriever and (when water proven dogs are bred) to excel as a waterfowl retriever. The EB has the intense drive to even retrieve birds as large as a Greater Canada Goose. See for yourself in the videos of our dogs Jock and Libby . The EB takes up a small footprint in the duck blind, they possess strong retrieving instincts, and are powerful swimmers. The Epagneul Breton breed is especially useful for early season duck hunting and in more southern areas of the United States where waterfowl hunting season temperatures are not as frigid. The EB is a single coat dog so obviously will not be as hardy for frigid weather water retrieves when compared to a double coat dog but our dogs will retrieve through ice. Our experience has been the EB serves the versatile function as a waterfowl retriever successfully in our region of the United States. Today's hunter wants their hunting companion to come indoors as an integral part of the family. The Epagneul Breton being the smallest of the pointing breeds with its docked tail easily proves to be a wonderful family house dog with a little training as a puppy.
At Prairie Prime LLC we put value in establishing lasting relationships with our puppy buyers through regional club involvement, education, and support. We create a great value with our Prairie Prime line of EB's by combining a fair price, high level inclusive services, and high quality puppies with only the best proven pedigrees. Thank you for choosing Prairie Prime LLC for your future puppy purchase.

If someone is looking for a prey driven, loving family companion, easily trainable, then Prairie Prime Kennels can provide the EB pup. I acquired Suzette Isabella in May, 2021, and she has already completed formal training in a positive, productive manner. She’s easy to hunt over, and eager to please. Our family has had other EB’s over the years, and I found Todd to be knowledgeable about the care, breeding and training of EB’s. His breeding stock is loving, healthy hunters, with a prey drive and a "can do" attitude. Todd was easy to work with, keeping me informed of my pup’s impending birth, her development during her first eight weeks, and has been easily accessible for any follow-up assistance and suggestions. Furthermore, he is honest and fair in his dealings with his pups and people. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase another pup from Prairie Prime Kennels again. The whole family, (grandchildren included) love this pup!

We got a pup from the S2 litter from Prairie Prime LLC and enjoyed the process and love the pup. I peppered Todd with emails and phone calls trying to decide if the breed was right for me and he was patient and knowledgeable and an enthusiastic supporter of the Epagneul Breton. We want to be able to breed this pup so insuring first choice in the litter meant we were customers to service for over a year and Todd was always great. Once Odette had her pups, we received videos to update progress and dream of our pup. The pup is everything we hoped for, and we can't wait to see what kind of bird dog she turns into! Todd was a pleasure to deal with, I trust his word and would do it again.

We could not be more happy with Prairie Prime and especially our new puppy, Shooter. Todd was awesome to work with, having only owned labs until now, we had lots of questions, and he answered, and is still, answering all of our questions. Shooter is everything Todd said she would be: smart, athletic, driven, and a great family pet. We could not ask for a better experience.

I am impressed with and grateful for the experience of obtaining a puppy from Todd and Prairie Prime. From the initial phone call to the present, Todd has been helpful in every way.
Prairie Prime is not a puppy mill. Todd is selective in placing each puppy in a new home. He understands the importance of exercise and an environment where the puppy can achieve its full potential. The breeding stock is carefully selected and the resulting puppies are wonderful companions and future hunting partners. These puppies are well adjusted at 9 weeks not only to human interaction but also to noises. They adapt easily to their new owners and surroundings, bringing much joy.
I have purchased hunting dogs from many breeders, but Prairie Prime is at the top of my list. I look forward to purchasing another puppy in the future.

I appreciate all Todd Farris has done for us. Our dog was heaven sent for myself and my wife. I needed a hunting dog and she needed a lapdog and she fills both billets. The entire experience dealing with Prairie Prime LLC was a great one. I appreciate Todd's professionalism with a personal touch in getting our new family member to New Jersey. I highly recommend Prairie Prime LLC.

Extremely impressed with my EB pup from Prairie Prime....Todd answers all my questions, I never feel rushed talking to him. I plan on using my “Remi” to point, retrieve, and track. She has tons of drive, personality and athleticism...and when its time to relax she loves being held and pampered, what an awesome addition to our family. Thank u Todd for doing what u do, as well as u do!

Todd made the puppy purchase effortless. I couldn't be happier with my puppy or the service I received from prairie prime. I will definitely be contacting them again when I'm in the market for another puppy and would strongly recommend Prairie Prime LLC to anyone interested in an Epagneul Breton.

As a former breeder of the Epagneul Breton, I highly recommend Prairie Prime LLC and Todd Farris. He is dedicated, knowledgeable, AND honest. The greatest compliment I can give is that I would absolutely get my next Epagneul Breton from him when the time comes!
