Brittany Puppies for Sale in North Dakota, ND
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 North Dakota?
We’ve found that different studies rank North Dakota quite differently on dog-friendly factors. The state does a great job with some aspects of pet accommodations and services. The main area of improvement for North Dakota is in its animal welfare laws. Let’s look at two leading studies to understand the state’s rankings.
An animal welfare group called Pawsafe releases a ranking of all 50 states according to several pet-friendly factors. Pawsafe ranks North Dakota 45th of all the states. It’s a pretty tough ranking. As we mentioned the main issue is that North Dakota does not score well for laws against animal cruelty like pet abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
Safewise conducts another study looking even more closely at safety for pets and their human friends. They actually give North Dakota a much better ranking, listing the state as the 21st most pet-friendly in the country.
If we take the two studies together, North Dakota still ranks somewhere in the middle compared to other states.
