I'm looking for a brittany/lab mix breeder. I will be getting a puppy in May, and would love to find that mix. Or a english springer/ lab mix. If anyone knows a breeder or is a breeder of either of those mixes, I would like to get your contact info!

Have you owned or hunted behind one, or are you hoping to get the best of both breeds. I'm curious if you find one. Keep us posted. welcome

I have not. I have had both a lab and an english springer spaniel; and have heard good things about a mix. I loved my english springer, but am preferring a brittany this time around.If I cannot find a mix, I will find a good brittany pup instead.

He wants a Labany. Bad idea for a cross that includes who knows what other multi generational breeds or muts to get the look they are selling. If your heart is set on it, your best bet would be if your lucky to find a needle in a haystack accidental breeding between two known hunting dogs and hope a chosen pup grows into more brit than lab. But a so called breeder doing this, is not pairing dogs for hunting or temperament and going to be way overpriced for what it is. Watch in the dog classifieds at the top of this forum. Some Brittany pups come up from time to time. You don't have enough posts to be able to post in the classifieds, but you can send those breeders and individuals private messages to inquire. Good luck

I would also encourage you to stay away from a “hunting dog mix”… it’s more likely you will get the worst of both breeds rather than the best of both breeds. I’ve had two mixes in my life, not because I was looking for one, but because I’m a dog guy and have trouble turning down a free pup. I had a Lab/Golden Retriever mix from pedigreed dogs on both sides and he turned out to be scared of water (wouldn’t even walk on wet grass) and was a total boot licker. Not a bad pet at all, just didn’t hunt or retrieve and he lived to 16 y/o I wouldn't have traded him for the world, but he was no hunter. I’ve also had a Pointer/GSP mix that was like trying to handle a kite in a hurricane. He pointed everything BUT birds. He ran zero to "out-of-sight-out-of-collar-range" faster than you could blink. He was an escape artist and ended up scaling a 8’ fence and got run over... bad deal.

Figure out what you want more out of a dog and look at a breed that will work for you. There are some really good versatile breeds that will give you upland and migratory hunting performance.

I hunted with a guide in South Texas years ago that had GSP/Brittany drops. They were freaking machines on quail. Some of the best dogs I have ever hunted behind and he bred them that way on purpose. It was no accident.

That makes a lot of sense, thanks first chance. I'm definitely leaning toward a pure bred Brit now

When I owned a Brittany, my dog too was involved in accidental breeding. It was with my next door neighbor's Golden Retriever. They only went to family pet homes. Of the few I got feedback on from my neighbor, I remember him basically saying the were bat crazy hyper dogs. When I ran hounds, I know there were people who did intentional mixed crosses between treeing breeds to create hybrid vigor as they put it. But I and everyone I hunted with, papered or not, stuck with purebred hounds.

Mixes are not a good idea,,, if they were, you would see them all the time. You had a lab and an English Cocker, and you think a Brittany will be better than either of those for retrieving? wow.

I don't see anywhere that he said he thinks a Brittany would be a better retriever than an a Lab or Cocker. He said he quail hunts and is looking for another dog. Wow.
