John Marsman | Marsport Brittanys | Edwardsburg MichiganI have bred, shown and hunted Brittanys since 1973. I show many weekends during the year, yet fall may find me hunting for some combination of pheasant, chukar, grouse, woodcock or quail. The many pictures on the “Hunting Dogs“ page speak to the success of my dogs in the field. With reasonable training, they will range a proper distance for the terrain, will hold a point and retrieve. 

The same dogs I hunt are also shown.

On the show side I bred and/or owned a number one Brittany (Diver), a dog that won Best of Breed at the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Show (Trouble), and 7 Top 10 Britts. I have been an AKC judge, past president and board member of my kennel club and past Vice President of The American Brittany Club.

I take great pride in breeding a dog that will bring you pleasure in every way. I have been dedicated to breeding quality Brittanys for over 40 years. I produce attractive, trainable, versatile Brittanys with sound temperaments that are well suited as family companions, hunting partners and show and field contenders.

They are OFA Certified and are now being tested for eyes "CERF TEST" and elbows. My breeding has produced Best In Show Britts, show ranked Brittanys, AKC Junior, Senior and MasteHunting Test dogs, a field and Dual champion, and over 200 hunting dogs.

Serious Brittany breeders take pride in the breed; the dog that wins at a show today can go hunting or win a hunt test or field trial tomorrow. The breed has more dual champions (Field and Show Champions), than any other breed. I provide written guarantees.
