Upper Ridge is dedicated to Brittany improvement. Our mission is to raise the whole dog, one who hunts, loves the family and has show qualities. We believe that Brittanys must, first and foremost, be able to hunt, as this is their core nature, and have a temperament that is pleasing and kind, with a willingness to socialize easily into the family setting. These two aspects of the Brittany's nature are equal in our view. Second, we seek dogs that conform to breed standards. This aspect allows those who wish, to show their Brittany companions. To date, we have several Upper Ridge puppies doing well in various AKC and American Field sanctioned events, such as field trials, hunt tests and show venues.
Our male, Ron, is out of Nebraska and hosts a pedigree with 21 hall of fame dogs and 64 championships, including DC AFC Shoshoni WarChief and NFC DC Gamblers Ace in the Hole. Our Female, Summer, has notables such as FC AFC Hi Proof Rum Runner and HofF NFC Beans Blaze in her line. Our other female, Missie is the next stage in our program and is a combination of Ron and Tania, hosting a heart filled with hunting ability and the instincts to get the job done. Finally, there is Tempest out of Summer by Ron. Tempest is a beautifully Tri color brittany female with a termendous amount of drive and natural hunting ability who will impress even the most demanding hunter. Each dog was chosen for its hunting pedigree, ability to integrate into family life and conformation characteristics.
You can't beat these dogs for hunting ability. To ensure gentleness, we socialize our puppies with children of all ages and numerous dogs. They make great family members. Upper Ridge dogs come with a 3 year health guarantee against genetic defects and our promise of the best hunting and family companion.
Each of our Brittanys is throughly checked by our vet and certified OFA Good or Excellent before being bred. We insist on all dogs being bred to or with our dogs be vet checked and certified to the same standard.
