Brittany Puppies for Sale in Delaware, DE
The Brittany is a popular "Pointing" breed of dog. A hunting dog that works well with hunters in the field and their families at home, they are very energetic and thrive with a purpose or job they know their owners care about. Brittanys are perfect for people who have lots of enthusiasm and energy – just like the breed itself!
It's easy to see by their coloring and physical characteristics that the Brittany and the Welsh Springer Spaniel are closely related. The Brittany was originally bred in the Brittany region of northwest France and was a commonly traded commodity across the English channel. These dogs are most often seen in liver and brown colored coats. Typically standing between 17-20 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 30-40 pounds, the Brittany packs a lot of energy into a small frame.
This size may lead some to believe that the Brittany makes a good apartment companion, but their surplus of energy demands a backyard and space to roam around. This breed ranks among the most energetic, so they’re perfect for people with active lifestyles who will enjoy adventures with their pup.
Brittanys are star athletes and, in competition, they’ve won more dual championships than any other breed! Dual championship winners have championship titles in two main categories of competition: in one of the two field trials and in conformation shows. These dogs are extremely intelligent and train very easily, so set yourself up for success by committing to early obedience training and lots of socialization around children, other animals, and large groups of people.
How dog-friendly is Delaware?
Delaware is a great state to own a pet! Compared to all 50 states, Delaware tends to rank as a fairly average location for things like pet services, pet-friendly accommodations, and more. But great spots for dogs to roam and play, plus good animal welfare laws make Delaware a solid home for your pup.
Two different leading studies rank Delaware as 28th and 29th most pet-friendly state.
An animal advocacy group called Pawsafe publishes a well-known study ranking the states by factors like animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. They ranked Delaware 28th but gave it good marks for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
Another great study comes from the safety site Safewise. They ranked Delaware 29th with similar rankings across the various indicators.
The consistency between these two studies places Delaware firmly in the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.
