Since 1973 we have been dedicated to:

Orange_Ball promoting cooperation and friendship among breeders and owners of Brittanys
Orange_Ball encouraging the highest standards in breeding, training and showing of Brittanys in the field and in the show ring
Orange_Ball preventing the breed from becoming split into groups of "field dogs" and "bench dogs" to keep it forever a "dual dog."
