About Great Lakes Gun Dogs

Group shot

After a long search for a bird dog breed that was as much of a pleaser in the house as they are in the woods, we brought home our first Braque Francais for Christmas 2010. To read more about why we chose a BF for our family, see the “Why We Chose a Braque Francais” tab.

Having all of our expectations met with the breed, my wife and I decided to start breeding these wonderful little dogs. My family fell in love with the breed as well. My brother and his wife joined us in our goal of breeding the best BF dogs. Braque Francais are a rare breed on this continent and it is important to be mindful of genetic diversity. That is why Great Lakes Gun Dogs is not just one household but many.
