HiddenCreek Brittanys

Subtitle

Brittanys are my love, not my living

 In 1989 I was asked to take a Brittany as a favour. At the time I was breeding American Cockers. After researching the breed and breeders of this wonderful dog, I fell in love. I have been breeding Brittanys ever since.

With the help
of a few recognized breeders, I have developed a line of Brittanys that are outstanding in the conformation ring and in the field as well, but most important to me, I am striving for the perfect companion. Our dogs have that soft loving temperament that the Brittany is so loved for.


I am President and past secretary and past Director of the Brittany Spaniel Club of Ontario. I am also a Director for the Brittany Spaniel Club of Canada.




Muskoka Therapy Dog Program



The Muskoka Therapy Dog Program volunteer Susan McCullock and her 9 yr. old Brittany, (Hiddencreek's Ceilidh Skye) "Ceilidh" have happily visited seniors for the past three years.

"Muskoka Therapy Dog Program", is a service run by the St. John's Ambulance Service.

The program sees people friendly dogs of all sizes and types enter the lives of residents who live in our area senior homes on a weekly basis. Ceilidh also participates in the "Bite free" program. With this program they go into schools and organizations like Sparks and Brownies and teach children how to approach dogs in the proper way.

Thank you Susan for giving Ceilidh such a wonderful home!

Gem has multiple Group wins, including two Group Firsts and a recent Best In Show at Burlington Kennel Club. He also won an award of Merit at the Brittany Club of Canada National Specialty. Last year, with very limited showing, Gem was number five Brittany in Canada. Gem has begun his agility training and we plan to begin some field work with him. Gem is truly a “gem” and is a very much loved part of our family.

BIS CH. Mischiefloki Hiddencreek Gamin
Another "Best In Show" on Friday at Aurora and then we finished his FDJ today.


He did the FDJ in three tries with a very green ( i.e. Totally inexperienced handler – me!). Not too bad since the first time he saw birds was at his first test and he scored a 94 on that first try!!

He’s a very good boy and we’re having great fun! He just loves the clapping in the BIS ring and then just loves birds and field work the next day!

 Gem got a really nice compliment at Aurora. Someone came up to me and said what a great temperament he had and how it just shines through in the ring: he’s so attentive and happy and always wags his tail to everyone he meets, even the judge. I thought you would be pleased.

Just a quick note to let everyone know that Gem is now AM CAN GCh Mischiefloki Hiddencreek Gamin, FDJ, CGN J
 
Nigel put 3 majors in one weekend with him and got the last couple of points this past weekend.  Nigel and Gem did Juniors in the States as well, with a best overall, firsts, and some nice placements.
Gem loved it!  He never liked the retire-and–sit-around-the house-doing-nothing-exciting stuff anyway

Even after a near fatal car accident in Aug. 2005, and having a torn cruciate, dislocated hip and a ruptured bladder, Solomon walked away with the Award of Merit out of the veterans class at our BSCO Specialty on Aug. 11, 2006. Even at nine, he still moves like a dream and has a temperament to die for.
