About Me

    I have a 5 year old Italian Spinone dog. Duncan came from rescue almost 2 years ago.

I have been training him in obedience and agility. Duncan has titles in two different typed if agility.

    I went to the Spinone Specialty in March '09 and found out that Duncan has a great nose and prey drive.  I was told to get this boy into hunting.  That is why I joined the Spoon River NAVDHA chapter.  I am excited to start the training process, to let Duncan hunt.

    I have trained several other dogs.  I also have a Border Collie. He has obedience, agility and herding titiles.  I train and teach at Peoria Obedience Training Club.

About Me

Sur le Delavan is a small kennel located outside Delavan, Illinois that offers puppies, started dogs, pointing dog training and game birds. We are committed to the highest standards set by the FCI and UKC. Sur le Delavan Kennel is also one of the few kennels that have signed and adhere to the breeder's agreement set by the CEB-US as another way to raise the quality of EBs being produced in the US. Our dogs have the finest French and Irish lines possible. We test our dogs for the “Sable" gene (CEB US policy) and only breed dogs that have OFA ratings of "GOOD" or better. All of our dogs are dual registered with the UKC and AKC to help guarantee that they are 100% Epagneul Breton. All our breeding pairs are exceptional hunters. We also compete our dogs in UKC events as a way to "prove" our dogs' abilities against other EBs. We are very proud members and supporters of the CEB-US. Sur le Delavan Kennel caters to foot hunters and families looking for a pet, but our dogs do great in the show ring also! We love to, and we are very proud to, show these dogs off and invite everyone to come visit our farm to see these dogs in action.

In addition to our French Brittanys, we also raise and offer high quality and hard flying game birds. We focus on Pheasants, Chukar, Mallards, Pigeons and Bobwhite Quail. We have birds for sale all year round and at many different ages throughout the year. Please contact us to find out more about buying training and hunting birds. Please see our training page to learn more about training opportunities that we have to offer here at Sur le Delavan Kennel. We have 4 different dog training areas approved by the state of Illinois on our farm.
