    I have run them for the past 12 years or so, i am well into my second one. Like any breed here in NZ we get a shallow representation.
    It takes a lot of dedication and knowledge to improve a breed (and money).
    Also like any breed you need to see the parents working and hunt with them to see if they fit your hunting style.
    As you are in the SI I would concentrate on those breeders, so you can see what they have.
    Feel free to give me a call.

    Yep had a bit to do with them, my biggest issue with them hunting wise is ironically the reason most buy them - size. I really think in a pointing breed you need a minimum of 22 inches at the shoulder to not wear down in heavy cover typical of North Island pheasant country. To justify that statement, remember air scenting pointing breeds tend to run over things, ground scenting flushing breeds tend to go under. Galloping through heavy pohuehue in dune country or overgrown riverbeds for hours on end is hard work even on larger dogs. This wouldn't be an issue for a south island upland dog however. Otherwise fantastic dogs.

    Old man is planning a litter out of his import bitch again soon, I have a pup from the first litter and he is very nice, doing it all at an early age. PM for his details.

    Have you had much to do with them on deer Pointer (or anyone else)?
    I had one and he was super keen on birds, but not interested on deer.
    Has anyone heard anything of @EeeBees lately?
    This is he field of expertise.

    @7mmwsm I've heard anecdotes of them on deer but no personal experience. I don't think they'd be the best choice as a deer dog as a good brittany is quite a high drive beast. Upland game is where they excel. They are more 'english' ie. closer to the pointer and setter than the Germanic versatile breeds if that makes sense. And yes, spoke to EBs a few weeks ago, she is fit and well and still has her Bretons.

    Awesome @Kelton, glad to hear he's a larger one. I think they're getting too small here in NZ. How is he bred?
