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.

Our family purchased a puppy from Prairie Prime Kennels seven months ago, and she is doing fantastic. I have been around bird dogs my whole life, my Dad had Brittanys before he had me, but this is our first EB. I am very pleased with her. She is extremely biddable and is learning fast. Todd has been a pleasure to deal with from day one, and has been very available after the sale to discuss any breed specific issues. He is knowledgeable about the breed, and has a real passion for the advancement of EB’s. The care he took the first seven weeks of the puppies’ lives is unmatched in any breeder I have seen. Our puppy came home socialized and willing to please. I am looking forward to bird season, and can’t wait to take her for a spin. – J. Francis, Edmond, OK

Working with Todd on our 1st EB was a joy. He kept us fully informed the entire way. He has followed up with us and been available to answer any questions as Nova has gotten adjusted to our home. Our little Nova (we call her Dixie) is a joy...we're another couple months away from much serious training, but she is very smart and has picked up on everything we've done so far very quickly. She has actually slept all night since her first night with us...an added bonus. She's a loving little girl and likes attention which she freely competes with her brother (our our 2.5 year old Wire Fox Terrier) for. The folks at the Kennel we use when we are away say that her and her "brother" are a lot alike...meaning full of energy and very spirited. They are a blast to watch run and play together. She certainly holds her own. We fully recommend Prairie Prime...happy to answer any questions.
