The Brittany is a breed of gun dog bred primarily for bird hunting. Although it is often referred to as a Spaniel, the breed’s working characteristics are more akin to those of a pointer or setter. Brittanys were developed in the Brittany province of France between the 17th and 19th centuries, becoming officially recognized early in the 20th.
Character: Active, untiring and versatile, very reliable in work.
Particularity: The Chiens d’ Oysel, undoubtedly the ancestors of all the modern Breton breeds, were always kept for hunting with a filet, a kind of heavy net used in the middle ages to capture small game, either animals or birds, which was thrown over the game and the crouching dogs.

Brittanys haven't been called spaniels since the 1980's in the US. Drives me crazy when i hear it since we show, hunt and breed them, It's one of the dogs that Veterinarians miss seeing as family pets. The liver and white is isn't as common any longer so our next breeding will be with a champion liver and white. Roans are hard to come by also. Great dogs.
