Brittany dog overview

Not intended as a classic spaniel. Used for setting and flushing game birds. More like a pointer in working mode. Origins are from France. Good reliable breed but requires active life and plenty of exercise.Original use: Pointing, flushing and retrieving game.

Previously customarily docked to 10 cm.
Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006, docking has been banned in the UK. However an exemption has been put in place for Spaniels, Terriers and Hunt, Point and Retrieve breeds if the owner (breeder) can prove that the puppies have been bred to work. The puppies must be docked and microchipped by a veterinary surgeon before they are 5 days old. In Scotland, docking was banned completely in 2007 with no exemption for working dogs.
