Pappy

Neutered , Whelped 10/27/16

Pappy was our very first Braque du Bourbonnais. We had been researching what we wanted for a hunting dog and this one was definitely new to us. He was a nondescript, 8-week old white pup, the last one left in the litter. My wife and I looked at each other and thought maybe we should wait until there were more pups to choose from or something more remarkable. Then the moment that changed our mind, they brought out the Sire of these puppies and that’s when we met Sabre. Our whole perspective changed, what a magnificent dog!

Pappy came home with us and within a few days had become one of our family. He was always looking for something to do, a job… retrieving, learning tricks, whatever to keep engaged with his new family.

When he was about 1 year old, he was off to hunting school and again he hit the ground running. He is a hunting machine!

Then when the field time was over Pappy became our house companion. He was calm and well-mannered and content just to be by his family. This was the moment in time when my wife and I first contemplated breeding these dogs. They were great in the field, even more, outstanding in our house and there were just not enough of them in United States let alone in South Dakota a Pheasant hunters paradise.

So even though Pappy won’t be part of our breeding program his father -“Sabre”, mother -“Jetta” and half-sisters Ellie and Maggie will pass on these outstanding genetics!

Ellie

Female, Whelped 10/12/18

Ellie was the Alpha of her litter and is one of the bird craziest dogs you will ever meet. She is all muscle and always on the go. Ellie was trained with Tate Martinson at Martinson Red Point Kennels.

Ellie at 10 months old tried for the NAVHDA natural ability test and although she scored an 89, she wowed the judges for the fact that she went and found 2 different sets of pheasant and she also got up a raft of ducks! Ellie was also forced fetched by MRPK. This girl has the greatest prey drive imaginable, as soon as she sees us loading up the truck she goes into a frenzy!

She is the snuggliest most loyal dog. She is my shadow and so well behaved. We often joke that she could do a crossword puzzle because she’s so smart.

Maggie

Female, Whelped 10/12/18

Maggie is a perfect specimen of a Braque du Bourbonnais. She is an inspired dog in the field and one of the gentlest dogs you will find once the hunt is over. At 9 months old, she finished her hunting training and did extremely well scoring a prize 1, 112 perfect score. She worked on all aspects of pointing and tracking and has had many birds shot over her. She’s a fantastic mother and is just the most deliberate dog in the field. It is almost as if she planned the hunt for two days. She knows where she is going and what she is going to get when she steps on that field.

Maggie is also a super lover. If she’s in the car, She has to always be touching you. Whether she’s her paw is on my shoulder or arm or her head on my hand, she  just always has to be touching us. Just an absolute sweetheart

Payton AKC STAR PUPPY

Female, Whelped

Payton is a beautiful fawn, the offspring of two livers. That doesn’t happen often. She has been awarded our first AKC Star Puppy Certification for our kennel. She is rock-solid in the field and has a great nose. We have had a couple of people who have offered to give her a good home but she is staying put. We love this little girl!

Cici

Female, Whelped 12/2020

Acorns sister Cici is Maggie’s twin. When she gets on something she is laser-focused. Almost NOTHING will pull her off the scent. Cici, much like Maggie, is deliberate and precise when she’s in the field. At home, she’s loving and mellow. Cici likes her space but has no problem invading yours for some snuggles and pets. She is one of the most beautiful dogs we have ever seen. She will join the breeding program late 2022

Acorn

Female, Whelped 12/2020

Acorn is the MINI ME of Elli. She reminds us so much of Elli but is long-legged and agile. She did hunting training at 6 months and came back a hunting machine. She is deliberate and a well-controlled hunting dog. She’s sweet but she is ornery! She surprises us with her inventive ways to show her love to us. But the love she has is endless. She and Cici (who are sisters) are like mirror images of our other sister set Maggie and Elli. She’s a force in the field but a love at home. She will join the breeding program

Viola

Female, Whelped 4/18/2021

Jaque and Payton from Cactus Country

Viola is a force to be reckoned with. She is mischievous, dominant, and strong. She shows interest in trouble but loves unconditionally. She’s sweet yet sassy and just a honey to have around. She shows all the characteristics of a perfect bird dog. She will join the breeding program next year pending Hip test

Viola Lee Blues

Ripple

Female, Whelped 4/18/2021

Ripple is practically a ghost. You don’t see her coming until she’s right on your lap. Which will translate well into the field. She is absolutely enamored with birds and we are so excited to see her hunt.

Abby

Female, Whelped 9/11/21

Sweet Abby is the newest addition! She is as sweet as can be and already pointing! She follows the big dogs around like she’s one of them. She is Sabres full sister so we know she’s going to be fierce in the field!

Will be in the breeding program pending hip tests

Drax

Male, Whelped 11/11/18

Drax is owned by Nicholas and Sharleanna. Here is a little of their story.

Our Drax loves snuggling and being right at our side. He’s amazing and patient with our little one and loves getting attention from our girls. If you pet Drax, be prepared to be his best friend. We often joke that Drax can’t get close enough to you. The concept of personal space is lost on Drax. He loves to hang out and snuggle when we are home but can practically FLY when he’s running the field!

Whether we are camping or out on walks or out in the field he is constantly pointing for us!”

Gus

Male, Whelped 4/11/2021

Gus is just COOL. Gus is so laid back and everyone just loves him. Right now he’s the typical teenage boy strutting around the kennel like he owns it. He’s attentive to things around him but not bothered by distractions. We can’t wait to see him in the field! He will join the breeding program pending Hip test.
