I'm pretty excited. bounce

My last Brittany (back in 1995) was just a pup from a friend's dogs, that I fumbled through trying to train. Since then, all my dogs have been adult hand-me-downs or rescues. This is the first time in my life I've been in the position to afford a well-bred pup and the first time I have been able to get professional help with the training.
This will also be the first time my wife has had a puppy in the house. (I've done my best to warn her of the 'challenges'. peep )

All my hunting buddies run Vizsla or GSPs, so this guy will be a quite change.

We put a deposit down with Jimmie Summerlin a little while back and the puppies were born right before Christmas.

An white & orange male from this litter. Rye will probably be his name.


Sire: Buster

Dam: Spice


I'm still talking with friends and hunting buddies (as well as the posts from a recent thread here) about trainers... we need to figure that out by July, so we can get him to a week of puppy school at 6 months.

My wife is really excited about going out in a couple of weeks to pick out the pup. I guess he will be coming home around the middle of February. I hope my work schedule cooperates, I'd hate to bring him home, then take off for a week business trip...that just would right for the pup or my wife frown

I enjoy my Britt! Got her as a 6 week old pup, she was the easiest as far as the pups I've had, which were labs, gsp, and the latest English pointer. I've also had the hand me downs and guide dog retiree pointers, the pups do take a lot of time and energy. If your looking for a trainer, I'd recommend Ronnie Smith in Big Cabin, OK. You need to contact them now to get on the list for fall training. It'll be a 3 month session, august- October

Ronnie is definitely on the short list. So is Tim Hidalgo.

Pretty tough to beat a Brit.......If you can get past the chainsaw part.

Really a good looking pup. Who was the breeder?

My dad had a couple and I had one shortly after I got out of college. Definitely intelligent and they work hard to please.

After a little of the spring tension wears down (about 2 years old) they are happy curled up by the recliner when hunting season is over.

Thank you! The breeder was Susan Wieboldt out of Harlingen, and she was really good to work with!
