We can't say enough about our pup Poet (Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever). We have had her just over a year now and she has been such a joy. She is happy and healthy and gets along great with all of our other pets at home. She has won a competition at a local county fair for best in show photo. She has even gone through training where now she is working with trouble youth children. We could go on and on about her and what a wonderful addition she has made. Thank you, Jay!

Jay has been the best breeder to work with. Our Toller, Marvin is now a little over 2 years old and he is the best boy in the world. Great temperament, very adaptable for our lifestyle, (hiking, walking the woods, or just relaxing) and just overall an awesome family dog. We picked up our second pup Tilly from Jay a few weeks back (French Brittany). She is a phenomenal dog already. Super obedient, doing great with potty and crate training, and very cozy. In the future we plan on getting more dogs from Jay for sure!

Today was special for me because it was the first time I shot a limit of wild roosters on public land in Iowa over Rudy. I would not have gotten these birds without him. He is developing into a good gun dog. I cannot speak highly enough about this dog. We love Rudy. He is part of our family and I have to pinch myself when I think that I have such a dog as this.

I purchased an English Cocker Spaniel from you back in 2005. Sarge was out of Crockett and Sally. He was a tremendous dog. I must report that we lost him to old age a few weeks ago. In Sarge's prime years he hunted and I mean hunted hard. Once he caught on to the game, he was very hard charging, yet biddable and what a joy to shoot over. He was amazing on Quail and Pheasants and even drove out a few huns. He also loved to swim. As you can imagine, I am a bit grief stricken and missing my pal. In the future I will be looking for another dog like Sarge.

Jay - Abbey is far and away the smartest dog we have ever had, and we have had some smart ones. We hike 20+ miles a week, and we go camping and backpacking in the Rockies and Abbey does it all. She has invented a game when we are on one of the trail walks. She will dock a stick on the trail. After we have walked (even 100's of yards), she will bump my leg and hups asking to be sent for the retrieve. We call it the no-toss fetch. Despite all the endless energy, she has incredible house manners.
Abbey is doing agility work with my wife and is doing Master's level work. The trainer calls her the little red rocket.
Now the hunting story: We just got back from South Dakota. We have known a farmer for about 20 years. He's almost 80, and between him and his sons, they must own half the county. Last year they were not home when we hunted, so they didn't see Abbey. This year, when the farmer saw Abbey, he was a little doubtful that she would be able to retrieve the birds. One of the sons brought along his GSP and a German Spaniel to the first field. The field was blown over sorghum and looked like a woven basket. Abbey attacked the cover like rams butting heads. She made the other dogs look like timid wall flowers. We kept hearing the son say "Dang" under his breath. At the end of the field, we kicked out a rooster and dropped it over a fence row about 60 yards away. Abbey was like a red streak and came back with it at full tilt. She rooted out a limit of birds for us for 2 days and retrieved most of them. Her longest retrieve was about a quarter of a mile.
She definitely is the huntin'est dog I have ever seen. But way more than that, she is the best all around dog we have ever had. Thanks.

My first English Cocker lived for 16 years and when she passed we were devastated! I immediately started at a search online to find a new girl. I came across a cute little black and white named Jenny and I knew she was mine. To my surprise when I got her she looked considerably different than my original. That's when I found out the difference between a show and a field English! She is almost 12 years old at this point never has hunt a day in her life but is the love of my life! She's the best companion still acts like a puppy great with kids! Perfect family dog.

Lots of work put into Buddy. He is steady to wing and shot. Holds point like a pro and even gave me a dirty look when I missed a bird. Anyway, Buddy is a phenomenal dog and was a blessing to our home last year at Christmas time. Just wanted to update you on how he is doing.

Scout is doing fantastic! She has one of the best dispositions I've ever seen in a Cocker puppy, and everyone who meets her says how beautiful she is. She is such a confident puppy and I can really tell how much work you've put into breeding and rearing quality dogs. Not only is she a beautiful and confident pup, though, she's got brains. She knows her name, sit and to ring the bell to go outside. She catches on to things very quickly and she is a joy to be around. My husband adores her as do the other dogs. She's a toy fiend and claims every toy in the house as her own. Our vet saw her this past weekend and he said she is a beautiful puppy and completely healthy.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to own such a wonderful dog from your kennel. I can't wait to see even more of her personality and drive as she gets older. I have no doubt she's going to be a successful hunting partner as well as a life-long, loyal companion for our family. I will keep you posted on her progress.

Just wanted to give you an update on Ruger even though we have only had him a few days. He is adjusting very well already. He has not had any accidents inside and he is eating and drinking like a champ. He does seem to have a great nose and is very attentive. I toss his toy and say bird down, most of the time he goes right to the toy. He doesn't bring it back yet. But, he does pick it up and carry it around. We think he is gonna be a great dog and he is an awesome addition to our family already. We cannot thank you enough for placing such an amazing pup with us.

I thought I'd pass along an update on our little Cocker Maggie. She's one week into a one month stay with a trainer here in Colorado. Out of 8 pups that the trainer is currently working with, he says she wins the "well bred" award. At only 20 lbs, she is a pint sized power house that doesn't have a clue she's not a big dog. As you promised, she's also a well-loved member of our family. We're certainly glad we crossed paths with you and our little Cocker. Thanks again.

One other thought hit me after the last writing. In retirement, I work part-time at an organization that deals with the mentally handicapped. Periodically, I take both dogs into work and let them interact with the patients. The patients love it. Feeding and petting the dogs and asking questions about them. Both dogs love the feeding part and I trust them fully around them. So, it's not just my wife and I that Sunni and Beau provide pleasure to.

His favorite things are going on runs, going to the dog park, playing with friends at doggie day care and getting lots of cuddles from humans. He's very spoiled even though I promised he wouldn't be. He's afraid of absolutely nothing, and rarely barks. He loves every person and dog he meets. He's a far better dog than I could've ever imagined. Steph

We picked up a French Brittany puppy from you in February 2015 and we named him Beau.
I've spent a lot of time on the couch drinking coffee and enjoying Beau's company and antics. It gave me the idea to send you a quick note telling you of the pleasure that Beau brings to my wife and I. In rereading your mission statement on your webpage; Beau fulfills all of your stated goals. He's a good/dedicated upland bird hunter. He's a great/loyal pet. He's energetic, affectionate and he's a joy to have around. Perhaps you seldom hear back from owners who've purchased puppies from you, but this is one owner who appreciates the pet/dog/joy that you provided us.
Beau is our second French Brittany that we got from you. Sunni, our first is now 11 1/2 years old. While she is slowing down, she also likes to hunt yet(in small doses) and she also is still a great pleasure to have as a pet. Scratch that word "pet". While Sunni and Beau are "pets" they are truly more than that-they are family members.

Thanks you for a perfect little cocker.

Back last June I got an amazing dog from you, a sweet golden English cocker boy I named Arthur. I thought I would update you a little bit. He is such an amazing tempered little guy, so sweet and friendly to everyone. He has funny little mannerisms that crack me up, like always wanting to carry something in his mouth (even when he's sleeping sometimes). He's turned into quite the fetch machine and brings item after item up to people to see if they'll throw something for him. While he has not been out hunting yet, he uses his nose all the time and we made up a game "hunt it up" to exercise his sniffer. He does very well with finding hidden wings and tails in a marsh at a family friend's house. Overall, thank you for breeding such an amazing dog.

We got our English cocker from you back in November of 2014. She was a solid black female and my stepmom and a friend drove down from Minnesota to meet you and then drove her to a flight in Minneapolis tp come to us in Montana.
We absolutely love her. She is so stinking enthusiastic about everything and so oriented to checking in with you and working close. We couldn't be more pleased with her. She went to the bird dog trainer we use(exposure to tons of birds every day) last summer. He is a lab guy and he was blown away be her natural retrieving instinct. She wound up in his office with him and would go out and show everyone who came to see the guy what she could do. She LEAPS into the water on a water retrieve like it's an Olympic sport and she's getting scored on style. He would lob the geese dummies out for the labs to bring back and she would race past them and take the dummy in her mouth and bring back. I watch her like a hawk and when she is worn out she's done for the day(or at least a few hours). You had said, and I have observed, that she will retrieve even if she is flat out exhausted. I love that dog. Purdey has exceeded our expectations and is a fantastic addition to our kennel and family. Thank you so much.

Hi Jay, hope all is well with you. Wanted to give you a quick update on Jordy. She is developing into a very good hunter. she has a great nose and continues to refine her pointing skills. I am working her now on "easy" as she has a tendency to take off after birds if they move. She is on the small side, but for a small dog she has lots of heart. She is smart and very easy to train. She loves our grandkids and is everything that I hoped for. We lost our American Brit to cancer a few months ago and I have been working on my wife to convince her to get another French Brit. We will see how that goes. Take care. Scott

He is a very smart dog and was finding pheasant wings at 7 1/2 weeks old in an open field. He is now just over three months old and he and this breed are exceeding my expectations! Jay was very easy to work with and very helpful and is willing to help with any issues in the future.

I've had French Brittanys for nearly 35 years and am always impressed at their intelligence and hunting desire. I received a black and white Fench Brit female from Jay Parrish and Blue Chip Kennels. At 15 weeks she's pointing, retrieving, and obeying commands, and always asking for more. Jay has been most helpful with any questions about my pup and any others in his kennel. I'm very happy with Blue Chip Kennels.

We purchased a French Brittany from Jay and Blue Chip in November of 2014. Prior to receiving the pup Jay communicated regularly with me and answered all my questions. Our pup "Jordy" is now 4 months. I could tell right away how smart she was by the ease in which we were able to housebreak her. I had her out in the fields last weekend with some quail and I am amazed at her nose. She is very birdy and I am sure she is going to be an excellent hunter. She goes out in front of me in the fields and is constantly checking back to see where I am. In addition she adjusted so well and so quickly to our family. She loves to be around people and other dogs (I also have a 10 year old Britt). I highly recommend Blue Chip and Jay Parrish to anyone looking for French Brittany's.

My wife and I just received our 8-week old French Brittany, (orange/white, ticked pattern) female from Jay. This is our first French Brittany. In our brief meeting with Jay, I could tell that all of his dogs are of the utmost importance to him. Additionally, when you obtain a pup from Blue-Chip Kennel, Jay is available for questions you may about your dog at any time, at any age.
"Jinger" is a completely healthy and beautiful pup. Training (both potty and wing) has beyond impressed my wife and I from day-one. I've been around puppies of many other breeds (hunting and non-hunting) and I am amazed with the attentiveness, athleticism, and intelligence this breed has. French Brittanys are renowned for their "close to the hunter" hunting style, and those traits are evident with our pup after only a week with our family. I couldn't be happier with our pup from Jay and highly recommend both Blue Chip Kennel and the French Brittany breed.

I can't say enough good things about Bluechip Kennels or Jay Parrish. The English Cocker I bought from Jay in 2011 has more than excited any expectation I could have had. The little black fire ball I now call my best friend has done things for me that other dogs 3 times his size would only dream about. The desire, drive and intelligence in Bluechip's lines have blown me away. I could not be happier and would recommend Bluechip Kennels to anyone who wants a great hunting and family dog. When the day comes for me to purchase another cocker it will definitely be from Bluechip.

Unlike the testimonial left before mine, I am not a professional training but have trained 4 Labrador retrievers and 3 Llewellyn Setters. I hunt as much as I can and that often means traveling out of State since our bird population is low in Indiana. My wife and I wanted a house dog that would also be a hunting dog. I had no idea how much of a bird dog I was getting. Today, at four months old our female Cocker, Macy, was introduced to liberated birds for the first time. She hunted hard and located all 6 birds planted and retrieved all four that were shot over her to hand. She sleeps with us and has a great house demeanor. I'd hate to think of life without her and we've only had her for 2 months. Jay has been interested in her progress and helpful in all of her training. He is literally a phone call away and a great resource. Looking forward to a second FBECS from Blue Chip bloodlines.

I am a professional dog trainer primarily training retrieving breeds for waterfowl, AKC and HRC hunt tests and upland hunting. I competed my dogs on the upland circuit in the early 2000's and was fortunate enough to win a National Championship and several other major tournaments. This is where I met Jay and his cockers. As good as I thought my dogs were, Jay and his little dogs sent us home with our tails between our legs on many occasions. Jay and I have remained remained friends all these years and at his and my wife's insistance I acquired a pup(Finnigan) from him last year. Finnigan instantly became one of the favorites around the house, kennels with friends, family and clients.It is hard not to be awed by the loveable personalities coupled with the amount of drive and intelligence these dogs show. After seeing Jays dogs in the upland field all these years I was not surprised that Finny would be the great bird dog that he has become. I was and am totally amazed at what a great little retriever he has become.I put Finnigan thru the same program as all the labs I train and he can stand head and shoulder (even if he is shorter)with the best of them at his age. He is a great marking dog and runs really nice blinds for his age. His intelligence and drive and unbridled enthusiasm is beyond belief. He will run in his first HRC started test next week and with 2 passes will immediatly start running at the seasoned level. I can honestly say, and it is hard being a lab guy my entire life, that this little dog has captured my heart and brought new life to my training program.

I Just wanted to give a little bit of information about the French Brittany that we got from Jay. Jasper was born July 2011, he is a black and white French Brittany. This past Sunday Jasper accomplished his AKC JR Hunter Title. He had an average score of 8 out of 10. Jasper is an outstanding hunter and a loving family dog. It never stops amazing me on how much attention he gets when we go to a hunt test or clinic, People are just drawn to him. Most of the Brittany's in my area are American Brittany, so when we show up with Jasper they like how loving,calm, and how well of a hunter he is. I can't say enough good things about Jay and his Blue Chip line than we will getting another one in a few weeks.

Our liver cocker Annie has far exceeded my expectations. She's very sweet with my family but also very focused on her work. She is a natural retriever, loves swimming and has a tremendous drive. I'm still shocked at how naturally she quarters right in front of me. Jay has been great through this whole process. Jay makes himself available for advice and I've taken advantage of this. It's obvious that Jay is passionate about his work and very experienced. I needed a good family dog that is also a versatile bird hunter and Jay came through! Annie is a serious worker by day and practically demands affection by night.

This is an addendum to the last post which my wife left. Cody is a special dog, he was born in Jays home, went to a family in Minnesota, the family fell on hard times and had to send Cody back, Jay sent him to a friend in South Dakota who then sent him to a friend in Oregon. It took us about 3 months to find the perfect dog, do we get a puppy or a finished dog. We went the finished route. I found Cody through a few people and found out that he came from Jay. When Cody flew in to Chicago from Oregon he was really skinny and looked ill, we gave him good food and a loving home and he is the best decision in a dog we ever made. Outstanding flusher and retriever and house dog. Im waiting for another dog from Jay. If anyone needs to know anything about this breed, please call me. I love talking about our English Cocker. 815-791-5740

Oh where to start...My husband Scott and I currently have 7 English Cockers from Blue Chip Kennel. We hunt for our own enjoyment as well as guide upland hunts full-time at Highland Hills Ranch-one of the top wing shooting lodges in North America. Each and every cocker Jay has shipped us has become an incredible hunting dog with a great personality. Each dog shipped to us has been selected by Jay based on what we expect in the field. He has an uncanny ability to send the right dog from each litter. We gladly give our recommendation for Blue Chip Kennel in every aspect.

I live in New Jersey and I received a female English Cocker puppy from Jay in 2007. My son and I picked her up at the airport. She was in excellent shape when she arrived. I took her out of the shipping crate and put her on my shoulder , she bonded with me instantly. My wife suggested Ruby for a name and we all agreed. Well anyway she has been a pure delight to own. She is very smart , funny and a true champion of justice. She likes everything here to be in harmony. My three grown sons turn to jello when she comes around hugs and kisses are always in order and she returns the affection ten fold. Called Jay a couple of times and he was always there for me.

After seeing an Irish Red and White Setter on the AKC Dog Show, I researched getting a pup. After talking with several breeders, I selected one of Blue Chips pups because of the generations behind them and my comfort with speaking to Jay Parrish. After only two weeks, Lucy(now 11 weeks) is house trained, eager to please, has an exceptional temperment and her coloring is remarkable. She is quick to learn at such an early age which reflects the quality breeding of the dog. Jay's offer to be available for the life of the dog displays the commitment of Blue Chip Kennel. Nothing but the highest recommendation from me!

That first year I shot about 12 pheasants over her even though she was only a few months old, and by the end of the season she was flushing and retrieving. This past season she did an excellent job, flushing hard and tracking down runners. With a treat and 5 minutes I can teach her almost anything; she is extremely eager to please. My wife and I had a baby this past summer and she quickly adapted and is now very attached to the baby as well. I will definitely be buying another Cocker from Jay in the future. He is an excellent source of knowledge if you are willing to listen and actually use the advice he gives.

We purchased a french brittany pup for our daughters birthday from Jay in June. We couldn't be happier with our Rosie. She is a great dog and our family is blessed to have her. My husband and son have not taken her hunting yet but she seems to have a great nose, loves to run in the field and woods and is very trainable and obedient. I would recommend Jay's dogs to anyone.

After hunting over English Springers for many years, I was fortunate to get one of Blue Chip Kennel's field-bred English Cockers. Blue Chip Sweet Lady Molly is a delight, both as a hunting dog and companion dog.
My previous dogs were excellent, and I had high expectations for my first Cocker. We are primarily pheasant hunters, but this lil' Cocker breaks ice for late-season mallards! And of course she would go to the ends of the Earth to flush a sneaky rooster.
In addition to being very pleased with the quality of dog I received from Jay, I'm also very satisfied with his training advice after the purchase. I recommend Blue Chip Kennels highly

When our companion Coco-an English Cocker Spaniel-passed away from renal failure in March of 2009, my wife and I knew that we needed to replace the hole in our heart. We went on the internet and found Jay. Working with Jay has been a wonderful and positive experience. He is always available to answer your questions, before and after the puppy has arrived at your home. I have called him several times about potty, nipping, and crating issues. Jay has provided me with much needed expertise about my problems, and was never in a rush when addressing my questions. We received "Charlie Brown" as promised and in perfect health. Charlie was extremely socialized when we received him at eight weeks, and is one of the most popular and friendly dogs at our local dog park. I would highly recommend Jay as a breeder. His professionalism and devotion to responsible breeding make him a wonderful person to deal with and has the dog’s best interest at heart. Thanks Jay for all of your help, and I look forward to working with you in the future during Charlie Browns formative months. Keep up the great work. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any specific questions about this wonderful breeder.

My family recently had to put down our spaniel. And when it was time for another one in our life we searched about found Blue Chip Kennel! Now we have a beautiful black and white puppy with the cuttest freakles on her body. Her Name is Innis and she is just a joy. So playful, so funny and full of life. Noone can ever replace our dear Amanda, But our dear Innis will have a great place in our hearts for years to come! Jay was wonderful and very helpful. I never hesitated to call or email him when I had a question. Thank you Jay for our wonderful dog!!

I purchased a 9 month old female named Freckles from Jay in November of 2009. I have since renamed her Cami. Cami has been an outstanding dog. I hunted her this past year and could not be more pleased with her 1st season. I also own a 3yr old female German Wire-Haired Pointer named Shiloh. Cami's nose and hunting ability is unrivaled by any dog I have hunted around and I have been hunting pheasants for over 30 yrs. I would recommend Jay's French Brittanys to anyone. Excellent temperment, hunting ability, companion, and very socialable with other dogs. I can't say enough about how happy I am with Cami. The best nose that I've ever seen on a bird dog. Oh, by the way, did I say why she was 9 mos. old when I purchased her? Some goofball said she would not retrieve, yeah right. Cami is one awesome little bird dog. Thanks, Jay.

Cooper is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. I got him in August, 2007 when he was just 8 weeks old. He's the first dog I've ever owned, and now he owns me! He's beautiful, well mannered and intelligent. He's been a joy to train, with very little effort required on my part...I think he was house broken within 6 weeks of his arrival to our home. He's great with everyone he meets, although can be a little shy at times, as is common to the breed. He is especially respectful towards children, which is something that seems to be quite instinctual.
You can't go wrong with Jay's dogs. I have given his name to several people and hope to someday get another puppy from him.

I purchased a male french brit from Jay in February of 2007 and have been absolutely pleased with him. Great nose, perfect disposition. My wife was against getting a dog, and she has since fallen in love with Charley, and my 10 year old and 3 year old couldn't ask for a kinder and gentler dog. I will absolutely purchase another Brit from Jay in the next couple of years. Great dogs.

I picked up my field bred English Cocker from Jay in September of 2007. I was looking for a good companion and hunting dog...he has exceeded my expectations by far! I consistantly get compliments on his appearance, personality and field performance. I've been taking him to gun dog training since spring, and people there far more knowledgable than I, remark that he has great ability... I've even had to turn down offers to buy him! Not for sale at any price!

My family got our (strictly pet) English Cocker Spaniel from Blue Chip Kennel about three years ago, and were given a good discount because of his undescended testicle. He is the perfect dog. He's obedient and willing in the extreme, has a fantastic temperament, and an almost preternatural kind of understanding. He's terribly intelligent - he knows all his toys by name, and frequently picks up on words we haven't taught him. Everyone who meets him wants to take him home. I also understand my family had a great experience with Blue Chip and would buy again.
