The Patouche Kennel’s aim is to produce good working dogs which conform completely to the French breed standard. We prefer to use mainly French stud dogs or occasionally British Brittanys whom we know work.
To date we have imported thirteen dogs mainly from the working Keranlouan kennel but later on also added other bloodlines from the Du Bois Saussin, de St Lubin, du Petit Odon, de Tremouard, du Domaine St Anne and have just brought in a young bitch with Du Mas D’Eyraud blood …We are not interested in just producing Sh. Chs, our aim is to uphold the true traditions of the breed and keep them working. To date Patouche is proud to have owned and/or bred 7 Champions in the UK, four of them are Full champions. Though our dogs include many ” Elite” studs in their Pedigree we try to avoid the “Popular Sires” and believe in Genetic diversity for Health.
We endeavour to go to France on a regular basis and keep our dogs assessed by also showing whenever we can, especially at the Nationale D’Elevage which unites the best from all over the World. We are proud to say that our dogs have been placed consistently there.
We are committed to importing from kennels who have the working side and strong conformation of the breed at heart. Only the best will do… Our plans are to produce some naturally tailless puppies, without compromising on quality. We also intend to continue legally docking our puppies to enable future owners to work safely.
Our Brittanys are true to their working background, and our Hunter-Pointer-Retrievers have excellent scenting and quartering ability combined with speed, and are not for the faint-hearted. Their mind is inquisitive and for this reason are not always suitable for novice pet owners, they can however, put their mind to agility and obedience. We are always available for help and advice after our puppies leave.
