nown since the mid-19th century in the French province by the same name, the Brittany is the smallest of the versatile gun dogs. Though spaniel-sized (average 30 to 45 lbs.), the Brittany is a pointing breed, not a spaniel. The Brittany points and holds his game, and retrieves both on land and in water. He is used primarily on upland game in the United States, but is used on both fur and feather in France.

The Brittany is a dog without extremes. This is a compact, closely knit dog of medium size, able to cover ground with agility. A Brittany's medium-length coat is flat or wavy, and may be colored orange and white, liver and white, or tri-color, in clear or roan patterns.

There are more Dual (field and show) Champion Brittanys than all other Sporting breeds combined. The Brittany is carefully bred to retain this dual purpose: ideally, he should be able to hunt one day, have a bath and compete in the show ring the next day. Brittanys are known for having a keen nose and a very biddable disposition; they bond and work closely with their human partners. This allows the Brittany's success in field trials, hunting tests, conformation shows, obedience trials, agility trials, tracking tests, and just about anything else they are given a chance at. The Brittany is easily handled, but sensitive if treated harshly.

When not enjoying the sporting life, the Brittany can content himself at home as family pet and guardian. This is a fun-loving, energetic, friendly, gentle and affectionate breed, known to be patient and trustworthy with children. Intelligent and eager to please, with daily exercise the Brittany makes an excellent family pet and companion.
