Introduction to Brittany
The breed was originally named after its birthplace, a French province. From 1934 to 1982, the American Kennel Club (AKC) registered this long haired dog and named it Brittany. As a long haired dog, Brittany behaves in a similar way to the setter, except that it is smaller in size than the setter, but larger than the long haired dog. It has a short tail and a pair of characteristic long ears. In fact, the breed was officially named Brittany by the American Kennel Club on September 1, 1982.
History of Brittany
In the mid-18th century, French outdoor sportsmen used their local hounds and English sherds to breed more desirable qualities. Some of the descendants had no tail, and the subsequent ancestral temples of these descendants also continued the form of no tail or broken tail. The important thing is that they have a keen sense of smell and are good at hunting woodcocks.
This kind of dog soon became famous. It was not only favored by French nobles, but also loved by poachers. They can not only indicate the location of the prey and retrieve the prey, but also have a very good obedience (this quality is very suitable for poachers' stealthy activities).
Brittany was registered in France in 1907 and landed in the United States (Mexico) around 1925. It took some time for Brittany to be accepted, mainly because hunters preferred long tailed pointer dogs. But as soon as someone was willing to try the dog, Brittany became the most famous field trial dog in the indicator dog category.
In the end, the number of Brittany registrations soared, making the breed the top 20. No doubt, it's due to its ability to hunt birds, its close range hunting style, its small size, and its docile character.
Although the Brittany Spaniel was used in AKC registration in 1934, the word "Spaniel" was later removed when it was re identified in 1982. Because the way he hunts is more in line with the squat Hound of the cheddar than the snipe's way of dispersing birds.
