About The Brittany


About The Brittany

The Brittany is a medium-sized, leggy, dual-purpose dog, equally suited for sport and companionship. According to AKC® Registration Statistics, it has surged in popularity in the last 50 years due to its talents as both a hunting and show dog. The Brittany is also surging in popularity as the family pet as he loves people and is great with children. Originally called the Brittany Spaniel, it is now referred to simply as the Brittany, as its hunting style more closely resembles that of pointing breeds.

The Brittany’s small size makes him easy to carry in a car. Average size: 30 to 40 pounds and 17½ to 20½ inches at the shoulder. His short tail, which can be either natural or docked, is an asset. He has enough coat to protect him from the briars but not enough to catch burrs to any great extent. He can be either orange and white, or liver and white, with either clear or roan patterns. He is not a heavily coated dog, but is lightly fringed.

The Brittany is strong, quick and agile, requiring exercise and activity to occupy his body and mind. He is a happy and alert dog who possesses a willing attitude. Regular brushing is important, but their shorter coats need minimal maintenance.
