For many of us, the pursuit of upland has become all about dogs. And in this case, “All About Dogs” has become an American Brittany Film.
“I can’t get enough of it right now. It Truly is my passion. All the dogs have the capability. You just need an individual who can learn and really wants to apply it.” – RICK AFFUSO – An American Brittany Film
Rick Affuso is a New York native whose passion in life above all is the American Brittany. Four of them to be exact, four you will see in this Gun Dog Confidential Film. With his office and home wallpapered with American Brittany paraphernalia and the awards his dogs have taken over the years. Affuso has submerged himself in the gun dog community. He is dedicated to not only lending a helping hand to others, but to continue to learn and better he and his dogs.
AMERICAN BRITTANY FACT – The American Brittany was called the Brittany Spaniel until 1982 when the AKC dropped the “spaniel’ from it’s name. Since then, it has adopted the name “American” Brittany.
This American Brittany Film takes us on a journey through training, NAVHDA testing, and hunting. A look at the American Brittany in action. From corrective training, first hand advice and even some tips from famous gun dog trainers. Affuso has traveled the country pursuing, learning, and expanding his knowledge of gun dog training. This American Brittany film will motivate anyone to get out there and train their gun dog. And people who don’t own a gun dog will be sure to want to buy their first gun dog!
