About Buckley Creek Kennels

Buckley Creek Kennels incorporates some of the best Epagneul Breton bloodlines from both the US and Europe.

We are committed to preserving the original characteristics of the Epagneul Breton with our breeding program, constantly looking to produce the "Once In A Lifetime Dogs" for our customers!


We have many pups out there from our time with Trinity Kennels and the response has been overwhelming!

Buckley Creek Kennels has had some great field trial success. Within the first year, we were able to get our first title and have high hopes for our young dogs in the future

Buckley Creek Kennels started in 2009 when we got our first Epagneul Breton, Dakota. Although we had no intentions of breeding, Dakota changed our lives forever.


Our love for bird dogs started that day and in 2012, we added Halle to our family. That is when we really decided we might have a litter.

Three years ago, good friend and fellow breeder Jeff Ruiter of Trinity Kennels asked us if we would consider working together. We poured some new kennels at our house, brought a few of his dogs over and decided we would give it a try. A couple of litters and three years later we decided to start our own kennel near Pella, IA!

Thank you for taking the time to learn about Buckley Creek Kennels. 


We would love to answer any questions you have or get you out to our kennel for a visit!
