T
he Brittany Spaniel has been appearing in French and Dutch paintings and tapestries since the 1600s. Spaniels are originally from Spain, hence the name. 

However, Brittany Spaniels were developed in the province of Brittany, France by crossing native spaniels with the English Setter. 

The Brittany is the smallest of the gun dogs. He has been a hunting companion, pointing and retrieving feathered game alongside the Breton peasants since the 1800s.

The Brittany Spaniel is a compact dog that stands about 20 1/2 inches tall. His short, dense coat is white with orange markings or white with liver markings. He has much less feathering than the other spaniels and therefore requires less grooming. The Brittany is born without a tail or has his tail docked to about four inches to prevent injury in the field.

The Brittany Spaniel is quick, agile, strong, and energetic. He makes an excellent companion for the sports-minded hunter. He is an affectionate, friendly, loyal, good-tempered animal. Although the Brittany generally becomes a one-person dog, he will happily live in a household as a family pet. He is a good watch dog and interacts well with children and other household pets.

A highly intelligent dog, he will benefit from a trainer that uses a firm but soft hand. This is an active sporting dog! His owner should desire an athletic, high-energy animal. Plenty of good romping room and long runs will curb any restlessness.
