Brittany - Care and Grooming

Brittany Temperament

A loyal, dedicated, cheerful, and eager dog, the Brittany is a god that loves to play and exercise, and has plenty of energy. Highly intelligent and obedient, these dogs are easy to train, and this makes them great for inexperienced dog owners as well as for the more experienced. The Brittany loves people and attention, and it is important not to neglect these dogs, as boredom can soon lead to destructive behavior. These sensitive dogs are always eager to please their owners, but are also independent, spirited, and fun loving creatures that love to join in with the fun and the action.

When it comes to children the Brittany is a gentle and stable creature that gets on well with youngsters, and also gets on well with other animals, although as with all dogs it is important that you socialize them early on. With strangers some can be quite timid. Their love and protective streak for their family makes them effective watchdogs, and they will bark to sound an alarm should anything seem amiss. Some Brittany lines can be timid, and in order to prevent excessive shyness or submissiveness, early socialization is needed. In all, the Brittany makes a good family pet for those with plenty of devotion to give, and is fine in households with children and other animals.

Brittany Appearance

The height of the Brittany is around 17-21 inches, and the weight of these dogs is around 30-45 pounds. The Brittany has a beautiful, soft, dense coat, which can be wavy, and some of the hair on his legs is feathered. The common coloring for this breed is liver and white or orange and white, although some can be tri-colored which is liver and white with some orange. The ears of the Brittany are folded to the side of the head, and his expression is one of alertness and confidence.

Brittany Grooming

The Brittany has a beautiful, soft, feathered coat, and you will need to put some degree of effort in to ensure that the coat stays in good condition. His coat should be brushed twice a week, which will help to remove dead hairs and prevent matting. The length of the hair will often determine the level of grooming required. He is a seasonal medium shedder, and during heavier shedding periods you may need to increase the level of grooming.

Brittany Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The Brittany has a life expectancy of around 12 years, and there are a number of health related issues that are linked to this breed. This includes spinal problems, HD, glaucoma, seizures, liver problems, and heart problems. The parents of the Brittany puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.

Brittany History

The Brittany is a native of France where he is thought to have originated in the province of Brittany, hence the name. He is sometimes referred to as the Brittany Spaniel, but because of the way that he hunts he is more commonly referred to as simply the Brittany.
