French Brittany Spaniels from Pheasant Country

Plum Creek Kennels
BREEDING GUN DOGS FOR THE FOOT HUNTER!

Hunting is a way of life for a Plum Creek French Brittany. We own and operate a wild pheasant hunting lodge in South Dakota,  Big Spur Lodge www.bigspur.com so the bar of expectation for the performance of all of our Brittanys in the field is necessarily quite high.   We researched and selected only the best to build our foundation blood lines.  And because we are serious, committed French brittany breeders, we have imported  the best French brittany blood lines in Europe to our kennels. We breed selectively and ONLY with hip certified French brittany parents. Please enter the site to explore all the info inside and here's wishing you many staunch points! Bill and Kathy
