I recently retired and was fortunate to move back to northern Wisconsin. This gives me time and opportunity to get a dog, train it and spend time hunting ruffled grouse and woodcock. I researched breeds and a French Brittany is a good fit in terms of a house pet for our family, a good dog for a newbie trainer (aka me) as well as a dog that does well hunting ruffled grouse and woodcock. I am focusing my search on a French Brittany as opposed to an American Brittany, as they tend to be a closer working dog and meet my particular needs. For all you ruffled grouse and woodcock hunters. Do you own a French Brittany that as one breeder put it “is a once in a life time dog” or do you know someone who does? If so, which breeder did you get the pup from and how did you go about selecting the pup? I am more than willing to travel and pay a fair price for a pup. Any assistance you can give is appreciated! Bill PS – I did search the site for information on French Brittany’s. Saw a lot of good information but did not see information that addressed my specific request. If I missed it, I apologize.
