PLEASE CONTACT US TO EDIT, VERIFY, UPDATE and

to add new dogs!  As of January 2018 I am trying to

bring this up to date and will include more get sired by J&A's boys bred by  Birch Spring Brittanys and Merrymeeting Brittanys.  Thank you for your patience. Eventually there will be photos of our own titled dogs but that's going to take awhile. 2018 is already looking to be one very busy year!!! ~ Ann

J & A's Brittanys Title Holders

 

 

Bird hunting ability may indeed reign supreme for our beautiful Brittany gun dogs who are the heart and soul of our breeding program.  Even so they are also successful in competetive venues! To participate, compete, or  finish a title at any level requires commitment, dedication, time, and a financial investment. Not every owner has an interest to pursue a title but we are extremely proud of the accomplishments of Brittanys who are part of the "All Things Brittany" family who have received recognition.  Although not actively pursuing field trial titles there are dogs below that have been awarded AKC Championship points in both conformation and field events and are "dual pointed".  We encourage all owners to provide their dogs with every opportunity to awaken to their full potential.  NOTE:  This page includes not only dogs from our program which we have bred but dogs which were sired by J&A's males.  It is not all inclusive but we try!

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19 - 21
