Welcome to The Patouche Kennel
We prefer to use mainly French stud dogs or occasionally British Brittanys whom we know work.
The bloodlines we breed
To date we have imported 21 dogs mainly from the working Keranlouan kennel, but later on also added other bloodlines from the Du Bois Saussin, de St Lubin, du Petit Odon, de Tremouard, du Domaine St Anne, de Skol Louarn and des Plumes des Marais du Cotentin. In 2015 we added Lydie Du Clos de Memphis who combines Italian blood and is line bred to Ebert de Keranlouan. Since then we brought in two bitches from from Michel Corre, whose lines include de la Source aux Perdrix, and from des Plumes des Marais du Cotentin. Finally may we introduce a bitch puppy from de la Riviere Ouareau lines, sired by our own Patouche Milord to add to the UK and Irish gene pool.
Upholding True Traditions
To date Patouche is proud to have owned and/or bred 8 Champions in the UK, 4 of them are Full champions. Though our dogs include many French “Elite” studs in their Pedigree, we try to avoid the “Popular Sires” and believe in Genetic diversity for Health.
We endeavour to go to France on a regular basis and keep our dogs assessed by also showing whenever we can, especially at the Nationale D’Elevage which unites the best from all over the World. We are proud to say that our dogs have been placed consistently there.
Naturally Tailless Puppies
Not for the faint hearted!
