Brittany

The Brittany is a hearty hunting dog skilled in pointing and retrieving game. Strong, quick, agile and alert, the Brittany is good-natured and friendly, making him a loving companion. The breed has a dense, feathered coat that protects him in the field and requires regular grooming. This energetic breed needs vigorous daily exercise and thrives with an active outdoor family.
