I have waited for over 16 months to provide this recommendation to ensure my Prairie Prime EB was proven. I'm so happy with the result of my Epagneul Breton from Prairie Prime. It is obvious our dog had the breeding genetics to become an excellent gun dog. With consistent effort on my part in training him he has become the best gun dog I have ever owned IN 30 years of hunting. Todd Farris is an excellent resource in assisting me in bringing the most out of my dog. It came down to a GSP or the EB and I'm so glad I chose the EB and it was mainly due to Todd's effort in educating me on this great breed. You can't go wrong with a Prairie Prime Epagneul Breton and I certainly can endorse Prairie Prime for your future gun dog purchase.

My wife and I could not be happier with our puppy, she is a wonderful companion, sweet, smart and for me she is a non-stop go hard hunting machine. At 13 weeks she was blood trailing deer and elk at the hunting ranch. She has already paid for herself in recovered animals. And that is a bonus, because all I wanted was a bird dog. Again she is wonderful and amazing we have no regrets choosing a Prairie Prime EB and that's coming from a lifetime Chesapeake and Lab guy.

Prairie Prime is a superlative example of a small, hands-on breeder. Todd does a great job from initial contact to that joyous day when your new pup comes home - and beyond. It's easy to tell he's building Prairie Prime out of love for breed and not just for the money. The pictures and updates Todd shared from breeding to whelping to homecoming were eagerly awaited and informative, and he'll warmly welcome you into his home to hang out with the pups before choosing yours. When Oskie came home he was bold, happy, healthy, and very well socialized - he's always excited to meet new people and ready to go exploring. Oskie is already showing the desirable traits you want in a bird dog (and the ones that drive you a little crazy, of course) so the genetics are just as great as the environment from which he came. Thanks so much for everything and I couldn't be happier to count myself as part of the Prairie Prime extended family.

We brought Ozzy home in October and he has been a great addition to the family and fit right in with our other dogs. Todd has been excellent to work with from day one and took the time to discuss the breed, training and any other questions I had. I strongly recommend Prairie Prime Kennels.

Working with Todd on our first Epagneul Breton puppy has been a great
experience. We were familiar with the American Brittany breed going into
the process, but the French Brittany was new to us. Todd did a great job
guiding us through the selection process, and his wealth of knowledge on
the dogs was refreshing. Todd kept us up to date throughout the entire
process from deposit to whelping to ultimately handoff, we were in
constant contact. I can fully recommend Prairie Prime and Todd to anyone
looking to explore the EB breed.

We had already been in contact with several breeders before we found Prairie Prime. Todd provided the exact experience we were looking for once we had decided it was time to welcome a new puppy into our home. Previously, we owned an American Brittany & our search started with that breed in mind. Breeder after breeder, we never felt right about the people we talked to that were planning for future litters. When we came across Prairie Prime, we had never heard of an Epagneul Breton. We just though “Wow, they have some beautiful dogs”. Once we made contact, we knew this was the path we wanted to go down. Todd was very informative about the breed characteristics & how they compared to our experience with the American Brittany. His knowledge and passion about the breed were evident & we knew this wasn’t just buying a dog, but were becoming part of a community of people who shared our values. There were constant updates during the pregnancy, whelping, and early week of the puppies. He gave us all the time we needed during the selection process & continues to show interest in our EB’s health and wellbeing. We have no doubt that Todd will continue to be there for us if anything is needed in the future. Todd understands that this journey should enrich people’s lives & we believe he tries to do everything he can to make that happen.

My wife and I have been very pleased with the entire process of getting a puppy from Prairie Prime. We got photos every week with an email update every week until we picked up the puppy. Todd is a great ambassador for the breed giving us plenty of info and getting us registered with the breed club.

I could not be happier with my EB from the “O” litter and the amazing experience I’ve had with Prairie Prime! I am a first-time EB owner but have already fallen in love with this amazing breed! Todd took the time to educate me about the EB and make sure it was the right fit for me before I put down a deposit. I really appreciated his weekly updates throughout the entire process detailing exactly what was going on with the litter and how they were doing. He is always available to answer questions and cares deeply about placing each puppy in the right home for both puppy and family. Otaktay (we call her Oakley) has been the perfect addition to our home. She is a quick learner, adventurous, playful and fearless. Todd does an incredible job of making sure each puppy is well-socialized, which made my job a lot easier! I would recommend Prairie Prime 100 times over!!

Absolutely the best. I've bought bird dogs from all over the Midwest. Todd is very professional and knowledgeable. He keeps you informed in the whole process of purchasing the puppy. Not one negative. He even pays your dues. Besides all of this and more he raises great dogs at a price that he could charge much more. If you are lucky enough to purchase a puppy from Todd do it. Bottom line great buying experience and great dogs.

Working with Todd on our Prairie Prime puppy purchase in October could not have been easier. I had a lot of questions since I had never owned a French Brittany. Todd explained the puppies, their attitude and temperament. He inquired on what I wanted in a puppy and what were my plans with the pup. He is definitely interested in getting the Prairie Prime pups into homes that are loving and caring, versus just making a sale. I live in Texas and couldn’t stop by to to see the puppies during my pick. Todd sent numerous photos and videos to help me make what was a tough decision, as all of the puppies were so adorable. Once we received the pup, Todd gave us a lot of information about the breed, puppies in general, and kept up with us as a sounding board for any questions that came up. Like I said, the process couldn’t have been easier and Todd and Praire Prime couldn’t have been nicer. Thank you for such a great experience.
