Puppies for Sale

We are very excited to announce (all-being well) that we will be expecting puppies in early July 2020!

Dam: Lydie du Clos de Memphis X Sire: Patouche Milord

(See “Our Current Dogs” for information and more photos of the parents)

These puppies are from very strong working bloodlines, also bred for conformation and looks too, but will not be for the feint hearted. Both parents have strong, natural working ability and have demonstrated this in the field. We will be looking for experienced homes only for this litter.

Although both parents are loving and have super temperaments, they are fast and love to work.

Ideally, we will be looking for homes who will train or work their dogs; be it rough shooting, agility, running or even canicross – this litter will need a sense of purpose and want to have a close partnership with their family.

Although we pride ourselves in taking great care in breeping truly dual purpose Brittanys, and have been very successful in the show ring; both in the UK and France – a potential show dog can obviously never be guaranteed.

We prefer to talk to potential puppy owners over the phone, so please ring me…

Patouche Porthos – “Jasper” needs a New Home

Patouche Porthos, alias “Jasper”…a 14 month old male by Patouche Ianou X Lydie du Clos de Memphis.
Sadly Jasper is in need of new home fairly quickly as he is not getting along with the current owner’s other male Brittany in the home. Jasper will need a home preferably with NO other dogs or young children as he is boisterous and full of himself. At 14 months, he is being a typical teenager who really needs to be trained and have a purpose in his life.
Jasper has strong working bloodlines which would make him suitable to go to an experienced Working home, or with someone who truly understands the Breed and has the patience to undertake his training. He is fully vaccinated, travels well and pet passported.
I am happy to speak to any potential owner regarding Jasper: He a well bred young male with the potential to become a shooting dog or certainly an active home.

“JASPER”

Pictures of a typical Patouche puppy:

Our puppies are well socialised and brought up in the home…

It is a myth to think that bitches are easier to manage, more affectionate, more obedient and softer in temperament than a male. 

My findings are that what matters most is; the personality of the individual puppy and how it matches that of the potential owner. Colour and sex should be secondary to a good nature and a well made puppy. Above all each puppy has to be fit for its future function, be it a pet or working companion. 

All puppies sold will be collected at 8 weeks old, unless with previous agreement. Thereafter, boarding fees will apply if not able to collect then.

A well bred male puppy is even tempered, honest and just as eager to please.  Food for thought!

A few things to Consider

When choosing the Brittany (who are part of the Hunter Pointer Retriever breed) a few facts have to be borne in mind:
Unlike many breeds of gundogs in the UK; the Brittany remains truly dual purpose in the fact that even if sold as a pet or other, he/she will retain its working ability and hunting instinct.  As in France; their country of origin, a dog cannot be just a show Champion or just a Field trial Champion.  A show dog needs a field trial award and vice versa, a field trial Champion will need a “show” qualification.

What this means is that your future puppy will still hunt and quarter the fields but if not trained and let off the lead at a young age, could very well hunt the whole of the county in 5 minutes flat!

A puppy will need to explore and use his nose, keeping it on the lead until he/she is a teenager (6 to 7 months) is a recipe for disaster.  A Brittany has a reputation for being a little stubborn, this is not correct, it’s his passion that will take over in doing what he is bred to do.

This is a very intelligent breed, calm in the house, affectionate, very versatile and will happily do obedience, agility, working tests, trials and all sorts.  However a good training regime is essential so the Brittany does not become a hooligan, a title which is only the fault of the owner, not the puppy.

He is good with children, though can be boisterous for little ones as he likes to jump up to be closer to his owners.  Children should also be aware that playing rough games like tug of war with toys without letting the pup have them back, could result later in “mouthing” over excitement and possibly becoming dominant.

A dog is like a person, they need “chill out” time with a place of their own and time to sleep.  Remember a responsible breeder will always give you back up if you think things are going wrong.

The Brittany is the most rewarding breed one could wish for, and I hope this paragraph will help in your future choice…
