WI Top Dog Breeder

Dr. Jac’s Brittanys was founded by Dr Eric D Swanson, DVM, CVC and Jackie A Swanson, CVT after being involved with Brits for over 30 years seeking to produce high quality dual Brittanys like those of the past. Our goal in breeding Brittanys is to maintain the nose and desire along with the conformation it takes to withstand the seasons we put a dog through year after year. To do this we have gone back to some of the foundation lines of modern day Brits- the Hall of Fame O’Dee and Bazooka Lines.
Dr Jac’s Brittanys was founded in 1991 with the acquisition of PJ’s Wenzel, Scrum Lord o’ Doc, call name “Wenzel” from breeders Hal Engel DVM, and the late Jodi Engel’s kennel, PJ’s Skyline Kennels. A dog out of the Hall of Fame Bazooka and O’Dee lines he was a machine that we chose not to campaign due to lack of time.

His small size makes him easy to carry in a car. His short tail, which can be either natural or docked, is an asset. He has enough coat to protect him from the briars but not enough to catch burrs to any great extent. He can be either orange and white, or liver and white, with either clear or roan patterns. He is not a heavily coated dog, but is lightly fringed.

He works in the same manner as a pointer, but without the great range. He points and holds his game. He retrieves both on land and in water. He is used primarily on upland game in the United States, but is used on both fur and feather in France.
He is noted for an exceptionally keen nose and a very biddable disposition. Many of the country’s top dogs have been house pets as well as field winners and fine hunting dogs. The Brittany is a high energy dog who is bred to hunt. He does need lots of exercise or opportunities to hunt to keep him happy.
He has a typical friendly disposition and is very willing to please his master. He may be expected to absorb training more easily than some of the other pointing breeds, needing only a sharp scolding or slight punishment. The natural ability of the Brittany sells him as a breed to many neophytes in the field of hunting as he seems to know better what to do than his master.
He gains his admirers from his excellent working ability. The Brittany, with his shorter range, is becoming more popular as hunting becomes limited to smaller fields with more fences. His exceptional nose, which guarantees that he will pass up few birds, also helps to account for his popularity.
