    History & Overview

    The Brittany, native to and very popular in France where it is called Epagneul Breton, hunts, points, and retrieves. The name comes from the French province Bretagne where the breed originated in the 17th and 18th centuries. The Brittany is popular as a shooting dog who hunts beyond gun range and has a superb nose. He is agile, light of bone and quick of movement.


    Friendly and affectionate with household members but wary of strangers, Brittanys make excellent watchdog. They are fine with gentle children and usually get along with other dogs, although some males are aggressive with other males.

    They get along with cats if socialized with them early. The Brittany needs several long brisk walks or runs in a secured area daily. Without plenty of time and space for playing, these high-energy dogs will develop such undesirable behaviors as excessive barking, hyperactivity, and destructive chewing.


    The coat is medium in length, dense, and flat or wavy that needs to be brushed and combed twice a week. Coat color may be dark rich orange and white, liver and white, or black and white in either clear or roan patterns.
