Brittany Puppies for Sale in New Hampshire, NH
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 New Hampshire?
Different studies rank New Hampshire quite differently. Depending on what part of the state you live in, you may have different levels of access to pet services, accommodations, etc.
In a study by Pawsafe, New Hampshire ranked incredibly well as the 5th most pet-friendly state. They scored New Hampshire particularly well for their animal welfare laws, like harsh penalties for abuse and neglect, and high pet care standards.
Another study by the animal safety site Safewise didn’t give such shining reviews, though. In their study, New Hampshire ranks as the 40th most pet-friendly state.
Though the two studies produced wildly different results, if we combine the two scores New Hampshire ranks somewhere in the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states. Not the best, but not the worst!
