Sur le Delavan Kennel’s dogs were featured Epagneul Bretons on Scott Linden's Wingshooting USA upland hunting television show produced the fall of 2016 during Iowa's opener on our family farms in southeast Iowa. After a few months of discussion, Scott decided to move forward with two episodes of Wingshooting USA showcasing the Epagneul Breton breed with a friend of his and my good friend and fellow Epagneul Breton enthusiasts Jackie Hutwagner of Georgia. The episodes aired nationwide on multiple cable networks beginning the week of August 7, 2017.
Please note these shows were filmed on wild birds the first weekend of the season. No matter how much we tried to stage and work the dogs for the cameras it was still very difficult to get a real feel for the hunts. We worked hard for two days to come up with that many birds on camera.
Dogimentary TV did a show on the French Brittany. One of our clients and dog was the host. Take the time to watch it. It was very well done.
In the Annual Puppy magazine of Gun Dog, there is a very nice article about the French Brittany breed and it is focussed around the hunt on Wingshooting USA we shot in Bloomfield, IA above.
