Annabella Kennels

November 17th, 2017 No comments
American BrittanyAnnabella Kennels is a full-time gun dog training and breeding facility! We pride ourselves in breeding upland hunting dogs who excel in the field and also make great companions .Our breeding program has been built on decades of research and by traveling the United States from coast to coast, hand picking dogs that would continually produce true to form. We focus on breeding puppies who are focused, intelligent, willing to please, easy to train at home or in the field, naturally point and retrieve, and are great companions. Our dogs can sit and watch the game by the fire on Friday evening and put game in the bag Saturday morning. They are bred to be a loving companion to all in the family including children. We have a very high standard for our dogs to live up to. With each litter we look to improve the breed and help individuals find their next hunting companion. We continually compare our breeding to others across the country as we have the opportunity to train many dogs each year. We strive to provide you the best fit for you and your family. If you are looking for a Field test dog, a hunting companion dog, a dog who can keep up with you on your long runs, or one who can make a great family pet, we will take the time to help you find the right dog for your living situation. This is our passion, this is our life, this is our family. Our dogs are part of our family and very much who we are. Give us a call to discuss what your needs are what dog would make a great addition to your family.

Annie Oakley – Quail Introduction

July 11th, 2013 No comments
Annies First Quail Retrieve Annabella's Annie Oakley is doing really well with her bird dog training. She is a fine brittany female and we are having a blast with her training. She loves birds and had her first bobwhite quail exposure this week. Annie has a good nose and is showing great signs of intelligence in her search patterns. She covers a lot of ground and hunts objectives. We feel that frequent and early bird exposure is crucial to raising good bird dogs.

Sis Takes First Place

Sis Derby First Place We are really excited about how Sis is progressing in her field trialing. She took a first place this past weekend at a Vizsla trial in Nebraska. She had 3 nice finds and impressed a lot of bird dog trainers at the trial. We are especially proud of her as she is a product of our own breeding (Sue X Luke's first litter). Her littermate brother Tucker is really doing well at field trial competitions as well, but he is taking the fall off to go hunting for wild birds. So far she has only competed in puppy and derby stake but we are hoping to finish her next year and get her FC title. A special thanks to Ben Garcia at Hideaway Kennels. Ben has done a great job in training and handling Sis in field trial competitions. Last weekend she took home a 4th place ribbon at the Skyline Brittany Club trial in Colorado. If you think you might like a field trial dog or a fine hunting companion, check out the repeat Sue X Luke breeding coming up in 2013.

Sis Wins First Place

Sis First Place Our young female brittany "Sis" brought home a first place ribbon at her latest field trial. She just turned a year old and is training and competing with Ben Garcia in Colorado. We are so proud of her blue ribbon since she just started field trialing. Her littermate Tucker is also winning some puppy stakes. Last week Tucker had a second place and Sis took home a third place ribbon. These two field trial dogs are out of our Sue X Luke breeding and we are really liking what we are seeing out of their first litter. We hope to breed Sue again this fall for some more field trial competition puppies.

Earning the AKC FC- Field Champion Title

January 19th, 2010 No comments
So you got a new brittany puppy and you want to train him to be a field champion. Well, what does it take to earn the AKC field champion or FC title? When you get looking at brittany pedigrees you will start to notice some funny abbreviations attached to registered names. Titles like CH - Champion, FC - Field Champion, DC - Dual Champion, AFC - Amateur Field Champion are the most common. Many brittany owners are happy to own a well-trained hunting dog and to be able to load up and go hunting every weekend. Other brittany owners want to compete against other dogs and see who has the best bird dog or pointing dog. There are competions for testing hunting skills in the form of AKC Hunt Tests and fun hunts. And there are field trial competitions which last a little longer and test a dogs endurance and bird finding ability in larger spaces.
