Dawn and Hobye Amaute Field Win | 3points
3 Point AFC Win for Dawn & Hob w/ Joe Scouting!

" made Brittany history! He is the only Dual Champion to have won an all-breed Best in Show and the American Brittany Club National Specialty Show Best of Breed (from the Field Trial Dog class)!

Hobey has been a Top 10 Brittany and has won the ABCs Top 20 Invitational Competition. In 2018 Hobey was shown in Canada in one weekend he won three Sporting Group 1s, a Best in Show, and Best of Breed at the Brittany Spaniel Club of Canada.

We have the Burchetts to thank for Hobeys Field Trial Championship. Bob has done a fantastic job connecting with Hobey and honing him to the great field dog he is today. Hobey is just 2 points away from his Amateur Field Championship, hopefully one more feather in his cap.

We are thrilled with how Hobey consistently produces sound and talented puppies. He has produced multiple show champions, multiple hunt test titled dogs, agility titled dogs, and juvenile field trial winners.To view hiscurrent list of winners click here.Hobey is from the frozen semen breeding of Ch Alar's the Rocketeer CD SH "Chase" and DC Sovereign Copley Kiss My Chips "Zelda". Hobey is fourth generation Dual Champion, and tenth generation Field Trial Champion. Hobey is a blessing to us in many ways - fun to show, a pleasure to hunt behind, but mostly a joy to have as a companion in our family. I just wish he wouldn't take up so many covers on the bed!

"JJ" went to Marcia and Chuck Lawrence as a puppy, and they were kind enough to let us co-own him. The Lawrence's have given "JJ" every opportunity to excel in the field and in the show ring, and have allowed us to help with "JJ's" successes.

"JJ" started his Dual ways by winning the American Brittany Club Eastern Futurity Dual Dog Award in 2020.

"JJ" racked up many titles in the first three years of his life - CH, FC, DC, GCH, and most recently finishing his Grand Field Championship (GFC), by winning Runner Up at the 2022 ABC National Gun Dog Championship with 55 entries.

Thanks to "JJ's" many wins in 2022, including his win of the ABC Jim Hoyer Memorial Classic, he was awarded the 2022 American Brittany Club Magnum's Masked Man Award (top gun dog award by points/wins)!
"JJ" was exclusively handled and trained in the field by Bob Burchett of Burchett Bird Dogs, but is now retired with Dawn & Joe.

"JJ" has already sired two Champions and will be used at stud by private treaty.

Watch for "JJ" in his occasional appearance competing in field trials, conformation, dock diving, and agility with Dawn.

It is exciting to add Jake as a third generation breeder/owner/exhibitor.

"Farmer" is every bit a clown like his mother, and every bit as structurally sound and amazing as his dad. We're excited to watch this boy mature and grow into the dog we know his pedigree is capable of producing.

DOB 1/23/21

SOVEREIGN'S TOP SHELF "Pappy"Brittany pup Pappy"PAPPY" was a repeat breeding with "Hank" and "Godiva". While we had no intention of selling him, along came the Hickman's from CA. Jeff and Evelyn have lived up to their commitment and given "Pappy" nothing but the best of opportunities, from having "Pappy" with the Azevedo's in CA as a juvenile dog (obtaining juvenile points), and then back to Bob Burchett to hone "Pappy's" abilities.

Soon after coming back to Burchett Bird Dogs, Pappy won the Gun Dog stake at the 2023 American Brittany Club Central Futurity, with impressive competition.
After completing summer camp with Bob, "Pappy" came out swinging and won the Open Gun Dog Stake at the Hawkeye Brittany Club trial in Oct 2023 to earn his major.

In Spring of 2024, just after his 3rd birthday, "Pappy" came on strong. He earned a placement in January at the Greater St Louis Trial in Open Gun Dog, then a month later he placed 4th in the GOLGD Prairie State Championship.

Well, "Pappy" was just ramping up, because at the Ron Zook Memorial Grand Open Limited Gun Dog Championship he won FIRST place to add two titles to his name - RFC (Regional Field Champion) and that also completed his FC (Field Championship).

We couldn't be more proud of this young dog and we appreciate the Hickman's following through and giving "Pappy" the opportunity to do what he loves.
Now, to work on his CH/DC...


DOB 1/21/21SOVEREIGN'S DIRT ON MY BOOTS "Danner" Sovereign's Dirt on My Boots - Brittany pupppyWe bred Cocoa Bean to GFC/AFC Sniksoh Spanks Hank and had a wonderful litter, from which came "Danner" and "Biscuits" and "Ollie". We co-own "Danner" with our son Zach.

"Danner" finished his Championship in three show weekends, with a specialty Best in Sweepstakes and a specialty BEST OF BREED from the classes.

Zach is looking forward to many great hunting adventures with "Danner"!


DOB 8/16/22SOVEREIGN'S DIRT ON MY BOOTS "Danner" This handsome guy finished his Championship at 9 months of age and finished his Grand Championship at 15 months.

"Alvin" is not just a pretty face, his juvenile field career has also been stellar! He earned his puppy points right out of the gate, was awarded 3rd at the American Brittany Club National Derby Invitational, and earned his derby points at the Prairie State Championship trial - all before the age of 18 months. Thanks to Burchett Bird Dogs!

"Alvin", and his brother "Clutch", are from our "Hobey" ex "LibbyAnn" breeding. We're incredibly proud of both these boys.

We are excited to share "Alvin" with Janet Lioy and Andrew Greubel, who also co-own "Ollie". We appreciate Janet and Andrew giving this boy the best opportunities to succeed!


DOB 1/21/21 | PedigreeDC Sovereign's Hanky Panky "Ollie""Ollie" is a product of our Hank ex Cocoa Bean breeding.

A lovely lady from PA called me wanting a puppy with dual potential. Lots of puppies have potential as a baby, but few mature out as well and as fast as "Ollie". "Ollie" has spent time at Burchett Bird Dogs nurturing his natural abilities as a bird dog. After several juvenile placements, Ollie decided to really turn the corner at the Iowa field trial in April 2022, as a 14 month old. He not only won the 14 dog Puppy stake, but also came out on top of the 28 dog Derby stake. To round out that weekend, he also captured a show major at the Iowa Brittany Club Specialty Show. Late Spring 2022 Janet finished "Ollie's" Show Championship.

After spending the summer of 2022 at Burchett Bird Dogs, "Ollie" was on fire at the fall field trials, he was awarded 1st place in his first three Open Gun Dog stakes with over 25 dogs entered each stake to finish his DUAL CHAMPIONSHIP. He also placed 4the in the Iowa GOLGD hour stake and 3rd in the Jim Hoyer Memorial ABC Hour Classic.

"Ollie" will continue in the field with Bob Burchett, and will continue with his Dual ways. A heartfelt Thank You to Janet Lioy for allowing this boy to do what he was born to do!

RFC DC Sovereign Legendary Power  "Briggs" 

DOB 1/1/22 | PedigreeSOVEREIGN'S DIRT ON MY BOOTS "Danner" "Briggs" comes with an almost 30 year relationship with the Ziegler's. Doug and Christine bought their first Brittany from us almost 30 year ago. They wanted a family pet, Doug didn't hunt, but they were going to have a family and wanted a good family dog. In 2014 they bought another dog from us, and in 2015 they bought their third dog from us (both Hobey ex Corvette kids). Doug decided to try Hunt Tests, and obtained his dogs' Junior Hunter Titles. Then Doug started taking trips to South Dakota to pheasant hunt with his dogs. He became active with the Minnesota Brittany Club and is now President, and has coordinated an ABC booth at Pheasant Fest for several years.
Meanwhile, Doug and Christine have raised their kids, and now have a granddaughter. Doug approached me in 2021 and said he wanted to get a puppy with Dual Champion potential. In January 2022, just days away from Doug's mother's birthday, "Briggs" was born (Hobey ex Flower). Christine especially liked "Briggs" as a baby, and he became theirs at 8 weeks old. "Briggs" became their third Hobey son.
"Briggs" easily earned his puppy and derby points in 2022/2023, and then went through steadiness training the summer of 2023.
Meanwhile, during his breaks when he's home, Doug and his daughter Hannah have shown "Briggs" themselves, and handily received "Briggs" Championship title.
Well, Briggs was anxious to show us how much he loves and understands the game. In his first official adult season (he had just turned 2 years old), Spring 2024, he won the Grand Open Limited Gun Dog Prairie State Championship to earn his RFC (Regional Field Champion) title. Less than a month later, he won the Open Gun Dog stake at the Heart of IL Brittany Club trial to become a Field Champion / Dual Champion. Just a week later, while Bob was running dogs at the International Championships, we took "Briggs" to the American Brittany Club Eastern Futurity in Ionia, MI where "Briggs" earned 2nd money male in the Futurity Show, 1st in the All Age Futurity (with Joe showing and handling him), and was awarded Best Dual Dog in Futurity. "Briggs" came back to Iowa and placed 2nd in the Ed Powell Memorial Gun Dog Championship. What a whirlwind spring of 2024 for "Briggs"!

When the Ziegler's took that baby home, we sure couldn't guess he could do so much, so fast. Thank you Doug and Christine for allowing this boy to do what he loves to do, even though you miss him terribly when he's gone. And of course, thank you Bob Burchett for excellent care, training, and handling!
