I got my first Brittany as a pet, and a companion to my husband's Rhodesian Ridgeback. He wanted nothing to do with an 8 week old puppy at first, but eventually she won over his heart just like she did ours. Her name is Penny.
One day my husband and I were on a Saturday drive, and came upon a sign for a local dog show. We had never been to one and decided to stop in. We just happened to walk in on the Brittanys and saw the most beautiful male Brittany. His name was Castle One in a Millennium aka "Zoro" which later became BISS CH. Castle One in a Millennium, JH. I had to talk to Zoro's owner, Robin Tomasi. I told her I just bought a pup and liked the way she looked, but didn't know much about how they should look. She met with me and looked her over and said "She is pretty nice, you should try showing her." I never considered this but took her advice, went to handling classes, and started showing Penny. With Robin's help and support, to my surprise, she started winning. The rest, as they say, is history.

GOURLEY'S BRITTANYS PHILOSOPHY
As Brittany breeders we are determined to keep the Brittany a true "dual dog" to our best ability. This means good hunting instinct and correct conformation to the AKC breed standard. We participate in shows, hunting and agility with our dogs, but most importantly, they are first our beloved pets.
We do not breed often, and are selective in our breeding. We try to keep tabs on our puppies in their development when making decisions on future breedings. We breed for health and temperment. Most puppies are sold to people as pets and we try to ensure that they will be a wonderful family companion and live a long and happy life. See our Puppies page for more details, and contact us regarding future litter plans: email email@example.com, or phone 480-413-0604. We are located in Tempe, Arizona. If we do not have any puppies available, we can direct you to other reputable breeders.
