The Patouche Kennel's aim is to produce good working dogs which conform completely to the French breed standard. We prefer to use mainly French stud dogs or occasionally British Brittanys whom we know work.
To date we have imported eleven dogs mainly from the working Keranlouan kennel but also from de Sous les Viviers, St. Lubin, St. Thurial, Du Petit Odon and Du Bois Saussin. We have now added a new line "Du Tremouard"
We are not interested in just producing Sh. Chs, our aim is to uphold the true traditions of the breed and keep them working. To date Patouche is proud to have owned and/or bred 4 Full Champions in the UK, as well as show champions. Regular visits to France ensure that we are continually striving to import and breed dogs of top winning / working bloodlines from France. Also showing in France keeps our stock assessed in conformation..
So far our Brittanys have always achieved higher placings than an 'Excellent'
We are committed to importing from kennels who have the working side and strong conformation of the breed at heart. Only the best will do... Our plans are to produce some naturally tailless puppies, without compromising on quality. We also intend to continue legally docking our puppies to enable future owners to work safely.
Our Brittanys are true to their working background, and our Hunter-Pointer-Retrievers have excellent scenting and quartering ability combined with speed, and are not for the faint-hearted. Their mind is inquisitive and for this reason are not always suitable for novice pet owners, they can however, put their mind to agility and obedience. We are always available for help and advice after our puppies leave.
Isla is currently in training with her breeder in France where she has achieved her TAN; He is confident in her ability to trial on snipe this season at 18 months of age and her working book has been applied for. We hope to get her "cotee" in France...
