Sur le Delavan Kennel, LLC is a small family own,  licensed, and fully insured kennel in Central (Delavan) Illinois that is committed to continuing a strict breeding practice of Epagneul Bretons (French Brittanys) that only improves the traits and temperaments that took generations in Europe to achieve. We are using only the highest performing (proven) dogs from France, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Turkey, and the United States for our puppies, started, and finished dogs. 

Sur le Delavan Kennel has been professionally training pointing dogs for over 10 years. Our 10 unit heated indoor/outdoor dog kennel and 9 outdoor kennels are located on our home farm. We only take a small number of select dogs in each month/year.  We own over 1000 acres of some the finest upland and waterfowl habitat in Central IL. This allows us the versatility needed to train a variety of dogs for multiple purposes. We also offer a handle service for trial dogs for UKC and AKC Field trials and hunt tests. The main focus of our training program is to produce Champions: At home. In Field.

What does that mean for the clients? It means that the puppies from Sur le Delavan Kennel have a great chance to inherit these same outstanding traits; leading to great hunting dogs, trialing dogs, show dogs, and family pets. This has been proven by Sur le Delavan Kennel by producing more UKC field champions and grand champions than any other kennel in the US.  All litters from Sur le Delavan Kennel are UKC and AKC registered and 100% French Brittanys. 


We welcome you to visit our farm and see our dogs for yourself.  If you don't see the information you are looking for on our website, please feel free to contact us by email or give us a call (309) 231-8868.
