The Brittany breed is named after the area of France where they were originally bred. This breed is probably a descendant of the Welsh Springer Spaniel and the English Setter and also some other French spaniel breeds. Brittany is very intelligent; it easily can be trained. They are very active and also require a really active home because they are not couch-potato dogs. This breed is very friendly, affectionate, and playful. They behave very well with young children and love to protect them; besides, they make excellent watchdogs. Brittanys have very strong hunting instincts; they also do fine with small animals and even cats if they have been raised together. Training and socialization should start from day one when you bring him home; otherwise, you will have a headstrong dog that is harder to be trained. Brittanie’s size is about 17.5 to 20.5 inches, and it weighs 35 to 40 pounds.
