At Little Brownies we are motivated to provide a high quality dog that will represent the American Water Spaniel (AWS) breed well. Our focus is multifaceted and includes hunting ability, health, trainability, proper structure, and temperament.  It is our goal to place all our pups or started dogs in homes that are focused on having a life-long companion and will provide the best of care. As responsible breeders, we provide continual contact to all our buyers who seek help with providing the proper care and training of their new companion. Kennel visits are both welcomed and encouraged provided that an appointment for the visit is established at least one week ahead of time.


Little Brownies Kennel has been breeding quality AWS hunting companions exclusively since 1992. We are located in Michigan just 10 miles north of Howell and about 40 miles east of the State Capitol of Lansing. This website has been packed full of information regarding the breed and our kennel, please review it for any information that may be of help to you but always feel free to contact us by phone at (517) 552-1663 or email at
