We got our first Brittany, Toby, in 1974, when my daughter was three years old. I wanted a good house dog with a great temperament and my husband wanted a good hunting dog. Well, Toby was a great pet with an excellent temperament, but not a good hunting dog. In our rush to get a Brittany, we had neglected to research the breed. Our mistake was buying Toby from a kennel that produced over 100 puppies annually. Despite his poor breeding, Toby went to obedience school and did well. At the age of three he obtained his Utility Dog Degree in 4 shows.

     In 1978 we purchased our second Brittany, a dog from Michigan. This time we researched the breed. I read the standard, and tried to watch other Brittany’s at the shows in which Toby was entered. After much studying, I selected Carol Auten as my breeder. I wanted a female puppy but she only had one male available. I was scared, but we purchased Tyler, and his excellent breeding proved his worth. In eight straight shows Tyler completed his Championship. He was broke (steady to wing and shot) at 14 months.

     Our foundation female, Ch JenMar's Toast of the Town CD was also purchased from Carol Auten . She was bred in 1980 and her first litter of seven produced one Dual Champion, six Show Champions, and many field trial placements. They were excellent gun dogs. In all, we have produced over 200 Champions, 6 Duals, several Junior and Senior Hunters, and twelve, Master Hunters with all Show Championships. To maintain the excellent quality of our puppies, we only breed one-two litter per year. We believe in QUALITY NOT QUANTITY. each pup gets our full attention.

My daughter, Jennifer, was 16 years old when she got her first Best In Show with O.J. (Ch. Carosel Tropic-Ana of JenMar SH). O.J. was a great show dog and an excellent field dog. He earned his Senior Hunter and field trial placements and was the number one Brittany in 1985 and 1986, showing that the judges saw the quality of the dog in spite of his young handler's age.     


We believe in finding each dog the home it deserves. We breed, show, and hunt our Brittany's, we obtain Titles on each and  everyone, so that they are proven Brits. I would not breed anything that isn't OFA, plus a Champion, and have Senior Hunter, or Master Hunter.  I have spent an extensive amount of time learning about this breed and studying its genetics. I strive to breed healthy and sound Brittany's, well socialized pups, that exceed all the breed standards in health, stability, and type. I believe a Brittany should look like the standard, have a great temperament, exhibit no genetic defects, and possess an intense hunting desire, all at a reasonable price.

Our breeding program focuses on the DUAL CONCEPT. We hunt our Show Dogs. All of our puppies are capable of many accomplishments, but still make wonderful, loving pets.
