Breed Group: Sporting
Character - Temperament
The Brittany Spaniel loves water. Described as a very friendly and loyal companion, this dog also does well in a country environment. Originally bred for hunting, this breed has natural protective instincts. This breed is considered a very popular companion dog.
Care - Coat
A relatively light shedding breed, this dog does require regular brushing to keep coat from becoming matted. Bathing once a month is recommended. Some trimming is necessary if to be used for show.
As this breed is rather hyperactive, they can become bored easily. Consistent training and a firm hand is recommended to keep you and your spaniel happy. This free thinking breed responds well in hunting or retrieving sports and is easy to train.
A medium sized yard is a must for this rambunctious breed. This breed has plenty of stamina to keep you on your toes and does require regular exercise. Would do best in a home with at least a medium sized yard, and an active owner.
