The French Brittany is not recommended for apartment life. It is very active indoors and will do best with acreage. This breed is resistant to cold and damp conditions.French Brittanys are enthusiastic, active bird dogs. They love to exercise and have great stamina. They need extensive exercise and do best with an active outdoor person or hunter. They need to be taken on daily walks or jogs where the dog is made to heel beside or behind the person holding the lead, as instinct tells a dog the leader leads the way, and that leader needs to be the human.



Nature : The French Brittany is very similar to the American Brittany. Some main differences between the two breeds are their style of hunting; they have stronger hunting instincts thanks to their English counterpart. Temperament and conformation are also somewhat different. Make sure the French Brittany sees humans as above him in the pack order. Proper canine to human communication is essential.


Colour : Brittanys come in a variety of colors such as orange and white coat or liver and white are most common in the American Brittany; other colours include orange roan and liver roan, all of which are acceptable in the show ring. The American Brittany Standard does specify an acceptable tri-colour of liver, orange, and white with very specific color placement which is also acceptable in the show ring.
