Sampico Kennels was founded over 40 years ago by my mother and grand mother. We are now in our 4 th generation of Brittany breeders/handlers. Maintaining the breed standard is our mission. This means breeding a sound, healthy, happy Brittany that can go from hunting in the field to the show ring all in the same day.
Rick Stearns is from Oregon and breeds Brittanys. I have a long history with Brittanys. I bred and hunted them as a kid with my father and grandfather growing up in Idaho. I Have been a responsible dog owner and trainer for most of my adult life including 6 years as an Air Force dog handler. Although I do this part time now I try to dedicate as much time as I can with my dogs. AKC proudly supports dedicated and responsible breeders. We encourage all prospective puppy owners to do their research and be prepared with questions to ask the breeder. Make sure you are not only choosing the right breed for you, but also that you’re getting it from the right individual.
