About Plum Creek Kennels

Plum Creek Kennels - Breeding gun dogs for the foot hunter, companions for the home.

Our dogs are imported and first generation imports. Besides hunting professionally with our dogs, Plum Creek is competing and winning internationally. Tatoo, Ultra, and Doc all got their Trialer titles in France and Ultra received a French Champion title while Tatoo became the first and only French Recommended Stud in America.

We have owned, trained and hunted brittanys for over 50 years. We were one of the first kennels to begin importing the Epagneul Bretons (French brittanys) from Europe 20+ years ago. We have 25 years experience in the French brittany breed training them, hunting them, breeding them and loving them. All parents are hip certified.

Selective breeding with proven French brittanys of extreme skill and natural ability has resulted in the best French Brittany program in the country. We have spent many years traveling to France and establishing personal friendships, giving us the unique opportunity to select and import the best French brittany blood lines in Europe and establishing the superior lineage and talent our dogs have become known for.

Hunting is a way of life for Plum Creek French Brittanys. We have hunted our dogs professionally with our hunting clients for three decades so the bar of expectation in the field for our French brittanys is necessarily quite high because our clients expect perfection in our dogs. Please check our website to explore all of our French brittany and Plum Creek info at

We are also trainers of all sporting breeds, and uniquely qualified French brittany trainers. We offer monthly training programs as well as individual training seminar packages and day training sessions. See our training website at

Bill and Kathleen have written a book on French brittanys and it is now published and available for purchase. This is the first book that's been written in this country specifically for French brittanys. Our book includes general information on the French Brittany, L' Epagneul Breton, some history of the breed, an indepth study of the breed standard, puppy advice and training, starting your pup, building passion, field and whoa training, hunting and full color pictures of wonderful Epagneul Bretons.

Even though we didn't get Maverick directly from you, parents are both Plum Creek dogs so you guys are the ones responsible for what I got - the greatest dog ever to me! He has been in 5 UKC Gun dog trials and completed his Gun title this weekend, when he received 1st in Gun Solo. His litter mate owned by my brother received 2nd. I know it is the breeding as my brother has 2 litter mates and I see so many of the same traits.
The judge told me he runs as hard at the finish of his run as he does at the beginning and was excited about him. I just hope I can email you next year and say we placed in Open!

My family and I would like to thank you guys for such a wonderful puppy! Can't believe how fast he is catching on! Does well on the leash with whoa and heel. He has been fetching/retrieving great since the first try! He moves great in the woods and uses his nose a lot. I can't wait to plant a few birds for him.

I wanted to send you a report on Gracee de Plum Creek. She has become a bit of a star hunting dog around these parts over the 7 years of her life. In early December she was the hunting dog for a 4 day quail hunt that was a fund raiser for St Jude's Children's hospital. Two gentlemen from Seattle had the winning bid in the hunt auction and flew here for the hunt.
Gracie was flawless. Since this was a preserve hunt there were no bag limits. Gracie pointed and retrieved 70 quail. The two guest hunters made a very generous donation to the children's hospital and took home a cooler of frozen quail.
Because she is a very spirited hunter with a great nose and great bird sense, who is steady to wing and shot and retrieves to hand, the guests called her "Gracie the Wonder Dog" - and I am thankful I can use her talents to raise lots of money for the kids at St Jude's hospital. This was her third charity hunt for St Jude's.
In a year or two it will be puppy time again. In the past I have thought of 9 years old as the time to start tapering down an older dog so that they can still enjoy hunting a little bit at 11 or 12 and have a bit of a semi-retirement in those older years. So it won't be long until we are in tough about reserving a new puppy. All the best!

Time sure has flown by! Roxi is now 2 1/2 years old and is doing very well. She is extremely birdy and is constantly on the watch for birds. She even watches tv when I have pbs nature shows on. I trained with a pointer group last sumer but she would never lock up when she hit scent and wanted to encroach on the birds. Boy how that changed on wild birds!
She is very driven and determined in everything she does. She is an amazing dog and my best buddy. She runs like the wind and loves horseback riding, cross country skiing, hiking etc. Many people have asked where she came from and I can't say enough about her. If I ever decide to have another I'll be coming your way!

Lori and I wanted to let you know Livie is doing very well and will be 9 months this Friday. We have been having a good time watching her grow and progress with obedience and field training.
She's such a pretty dog and we love her very much. She pointed her first rooster last week and to me she is a natural and casts back and forth searching for scent from the time I started her. Your book has been very helpful.
Best wishes
