Brittany Spaniel


Typical Coloring

The Brittany are commonly orange and white or liver and white.





Like most hunting dogs, the Brittany are independent and curious, but good at following directions from their owners. They are eager workers and love to play, with a cheerful disposition that makes them fun to be around.




Activity Level

This high-energy breed requires a good amount of daily exercise. A short walk is not enough for the Brittany; they need at least an hour of vigorous activity daily. If they don’t get this stimulation, they can become destructive. Because they are so active, they are better suited to houses than smaller apartments or townhouses.
