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.

Grooming and Bathing Puppies

November 16th, 2017 No comments

Whenever we send Brittany puppies to there new homes we always try to make sure they get a clean start. We give them a bath using puppy shampoo (which is available at walmart) this makes sure we don’t strip the oils from there coats.

One of our puppies is headed for Nevada  and the other is headed for California. Now if they can just stay clean for a few hours puppies love to get into everything.  We were thrilled to find hunting homes for all of our puppies. Only one stayed here in Utah. The other two went to Wyoming and Arizona families.

Brittany Puppies

Brittany Puppies

Between 3 and 4 weeks the puppies will have their teeth coming in enough to start eating solid foods. At first I add a cup of hot water to make a kind of mush with out of their high protein puppy food. I am always amazed at how they know just what to do. The only problem is they seem to eat with both front paws in the food dish. This can be a very messy part of raising puppies but it is fun to watch. They are getting around pretty good and starting to venture out of the whelping box during the day. Now that the pups are starting to eat they begin to poop and momma quits cleaning up after them. I line the whelping box with newspapers and change them out daily, if not more often.

Liver Brittany Puppy and Young Pigeon

One of my favorite things in dog training is starting a young puppy. It is such much fun to watch their instincts come to life and see them blossom before your very eyes. Most bird dogs have the natural ability to be a good hunting companion. We are finding at times the  brittany breed has been bred so much for the show ring that they loose some of that natural bird hunting instinct. That’s why we have hand picked our dogs from all over the country insuring that we are breeding the best we can.

Penny Running

We have been hunting for some more dogs out of direct daughters of NFC Shambo’s Dark Shadow. Penny is the result of a lot of searching and phone calls. She was bred by a gentleman in Kansas who owns one of the last Shadow females. We drove the 18 hours to pick her from the litter. She is quite the energetic little puppy so far and she loves her birds. We are excited to see how she progresses in her bird dog training. If she has all the right stuff she will be a big part of our breeding program down the road.

Thank you to Carter Brittany Kennels for our latest addition to our kennel. Annie has been a joy since she arrived last week. She slept like a baby the first night.

She shows the drive and characteristics that we like to have in our brittany dogs. We introduced her to live birds this weekend and she did well. She retrieves to hand and shows great promise.

Getting Ready for Puppies

Brittany Puppy Helpers

We have some great American Brittany litters planned for 2013. We look forward every year to raising our puppies as a family. Every one helps out with the care and feeding of the new puppies. I think raising puppies in a family setting is important to the temperament and health of the dogs. They need to have daily contact with humans and kids are natural care givers. It is a perfect setting for raising well adjusted puppies.

The Brittany is one of the most popular hunting dogs for a reason. They make great family companions and they love kids. This is important because 95% of the time, your dog will be just that – a family pet. If you are looking for a pet or a hunting dog we can help. The American Brittany excels at both. We sell to hunting homes and pet homes alike. The most important factor for us is placing the puppies in the best home possible. Click here to view our 2013 litters.
