The French Brittany is very similar to the American Brittany. Some main differences between the two breeds are their style of hunting; they have stronger hunting instincts thanks to their English counterpart. Temperament and conformation are also somewhat different. Make sure the French Brittany sees humans as above him in the pack order. Proper canine to human communication is essential.
French Brittanys are enthusiastic, active bird dogs. Loves to exercise and has great stamina. They need extensive exercise and do best with an active outdoor person or hunter. They need to be taken on daily walks or jogs where the dog is made to heel beside or behind the person holding the lead, as instinct tells a dog the leader leads the way, and that leader needs to be the human.
Regular brushing twice a week of the medium-length, flat coat is really all that is needed to keep it in good condition. Bathe or dry shampoo when necessary. It is generally a low maintenance dog. Check the ears carefully, especially when the dog has been out in rough or brushy terrain. This breed is a light shedder.
