Overview
An intelligent breed, this dog does well in hunting sports. A gentle breed that is very obedience and very eager to please. Alert, lively, and independent, this breed is overall good-natured. The Brittany Spaniel is generally good with children and other pets if socialized properly throughout puppyhood.
Character
The Brittany Spaniel loves water. Described as a very friendly and loyal companion, this dog also does well in a country environment. Originally bred for hunting, this breed has natural protective instincts. This breed is considered a very popular companion dog.
Temperament
Happy and alert, this breed has a great presence. Easy to handle, and affectionate, this breed would make an ideal house pet if given the right care and exercise to keep him happy. This breed requires a gentle, yet somewhat firm hand, as they can be hyperactive.
Care
A relatively light shedding breed, this dog does require regular brushing to keep coat from becoming matted. Bathing once a month is recommended. Some trimming is necessary if to be used for show.
Coat
Silky, feathered beautiful coat is medium length and does not require much maintenance. Colors accepted are Orange and White, Liver and White, Black and White, Liver tri-color, and Black Tri-color.
Training
As this breed is rather hyperactive, they can become bored easily. Consistent training and a firm hand is recommended to keep you and your spaniel happy. This free thinking breed responds well in hunting or retrieving sports and is easy to train.
Activity
A medium sized yard is a must for this rambunctious breed. This breed has plenty of stamina to keep you on your toes and does require regular exercise. Would do best in a home with at least a medium sized yard, and an active owner.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Brittany Spaniel puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

This is NOT a good situation for any Brit! They need regular policing, like any other dog, and more than the usual amount of exercise and stimulation. Left alone, they quickly become bored. They are highly intelligent, inventive and inquisitive. Left alone, they will quickly find ways to amuse themselves, usually destructive ones. At a minimum, they should be outdoors, where they have adequate running room. If you don't already have a Brit, I'd advise against getting one. If you do have one, perhaps a pet sitter, doggy day care or some similar arrangement would work.

I own several Britts and I sometimes have to be at work for 9+hrs. In those days, I get up early and run with the dogs for 45min-1hr, then leave them in the outdoor kennel to go to my work. This way, they will sleep most of the day and they can be stimulated enough by watching birds/squirrels and etc by themselves. Leaving the Britts indoor without any supervision for prolong period of time is not a good idea. Especially young one. They will find something to play with and end up destroying a lot of items in the house, but more importantly they can do harm to their self during this process, either choking or chewing on electrical cord or some such. (Yes, I had all those incidences). If your dog is old enough (3+ years) I recommend looking into "Springer" that attaches to your bike and be able to run the dogs off of the bike. This worked really well as I live in city and don't have an open space to let them loose and run.

German Bred Brittany with Wuffen in its name. I am looking for more information on a line of Brittanys. My grandfather owned the dame, which had a very long name. We called her Wuffen because that was the easiest part of her name to remember. My dogs name was Morgan and was her son. I was wondering if I could trace this line down. Phil

do brittanys shed very much

1 Comment

This actually depends on the line of Britts. I own 4 pure breed Brittanys and they all have different pedigrees. Two of them have relatively short hair and tends to have long shedding season (spring and fall). One of them have typical medium length hair and he looses his hair very quickly during the shedding season (1week or so) and hardly loose much throughout other times. In general Brittany don't require much grooming though. I don't shave them or anything like that. I just brush them very good during the shedding season and vacuum my place every 3-4 days.

My Brittany is a house dog. I take her to work with me but it took a lot of training as Brittany's will hunt even you are not. And they will wander off if you are not watching. She has lived with cats off and on with no problems.

7 month old brittany Today we purchased a 7 month old brittany that has some field training and has been kennel raised. The dog is alert when hunting, but very very timid and mellow otherwise. It also does not come when called - Is this typical?

No. It seems like the pup had some bad experience before or just has not been well socialized yet. Try to do simple yard work to teach the pup simple commands. Often times, the dog doesn't respond to you and simply doesn't know what to do when asked. I normally use 6-10 feet long leash and teach them "Here". Say "Here" and slightly pull the pup toward you and when the dog starts to come toward you praise them like there is no tomorrow. Having a treat in your hand also helps. I also teach the pups to either kennel or crate by themselves when young. I normally say "Kennel" and when the dog enters the kennel or crate, I praise a lot and give a treat. So in the morning when I get ready for work and put my hands in the treat box, all 4 of my britts run to their respective kennel!

Absolutely not! Brittany's are loving people animals and will be very unhappy in a cage. In your home and interacting with you, your children and other pets is where they thrive. They are in fact true hunters but a lonely existence is their worst enemy. An active family, loving home with a good size yard and a lake or stream for a swim is where a Brit belongs. They are not a dog that belongs in a prison but they will do flips to win your approval. I have had many dogs but none quite as easy to live with as a Brittany. Mine would protect me to her death but would prefer to not hurt a flea. Mice, chipmunks, squirrels and birds are not safe unless they are raised together. I have black bears behind my home every day but they know better than to come in my yard because my 36 pound female Brittany will have them up a tree in a minute. Absolutely fearless in every sense of the term! The best all around dog and companion I have ever had and she will hunt for dinner.

I would concur with the above answer, but I would like to add that they are a very resilient dog. Morgan did quite well here in Vermont throughout the year no matter how hot or cold and absalutely loved to be in the field. Companionship is key though. They are not a dog to be locked up in a cage.

If you live in the city a Brittany is not a dog for you. The Brittany needs room to run. The Brittany is an easy Companion to train and if you are a hunter they are also easy to train .they will point flush and retrieve And are great with children..

Brittany spaniels have fur. You must be looking for a hypoallergenic breed of dog. People are not allergic to the fur of the animal or dog but to the dander they produce. Dander is a dandruff you could say that is dust like. Dog's saliva also causes allergies. The more an animal, in this case dog, sheds, the more dander and saliva is released. Some breeds tend to shed more than others. Some people may be allergic to a certain breed others are allergic to specific individuals of a breed. Brittany spaniels do shed, but they are not a big problem for allergy sufferers.

Also, the wrinkles on a dog, the more dander it releases. Dogs with undercoats also tend to trigger allergies. If she has asthma,it's best for her not to have a dog. You could always have her go around a few brittany spaniels and see how she reacts. As i mentioned before, different dogs cause different reactions. I try not being to wordy, but i cannot help it. To sum it all up, have her go around different dogs and dog breeds to see which one is best.

You cant really get a certain type of dog for apartment living as a dogs characteristics are based on breed standards and sometimes dogs do not follow this. Any dog is good for an apartment as long as they are getting daily excersie. If you do not have a least an hour a day to excercise your dog I recommend you get a cat.

In the United States, Brittnays are no longer considered spaniels due to their behavior. Brittnays, according to the AKC, are considered to act more like pointers than retrieving spaniels. Springer spaniels also tend to shed more than brittnays.

How old is your brittany? Most act this way if they are young and/or not getting enough excercise at home. Your brittany needs TONS of excerise, especially when a puppy. They need to run and take regular walks. I trained my Brittany to run alongside me while I bike. For bad behavior - You need to "catch them in the act" when misbaving. If they run out of the yard, yell "NO!" as soon as the cross the property line, so they know where the line is. The more you correct the bad behavior, the quicker they'll learn. Be firm, but not abusive. Brittany's are extremely senstive to punishment. Also, if she/he keeps taking the kids toys, consider getting her some fun toys of her own. Mine loves the "stuffless" animals. Good luck! And Don't give up - Brittany's are totally worth the effort. They return your love and obedience 10-fold. Patience!!

Yes, brittanys are typically very good with cats and other pets. In very strange cases will you get a brittany that has aggression issues. They do not have a very high prey drive. If the dog is trained to treat other animals, cats, well since puppyhood, it won't have any problems in the future.

They don't really need grooming as such, other than a good brushing once or twice a week. Feathered legs are usually left how they are. Bathing them makes their soft hair even softer. Brittanies are perfect so their owner will think they look amazing even if you just bathe them and clip their nails!

No Miniature breed. Britts vary in size, mine is 28lbs and very petite. Best bet is to look for a petite mother and choose a female pup. They can get as big as 50lbs for a heavyset male.

He's going to hunt anything that isn't a dog or human, and is smaller than him. Birds, squirrels, cats, hampsters, etc., are triggers of his instinct. In fact it may drive him nuts trying to get the ferrit over time. My Brittany will become obsessed with a bush only because it saw a bird pop out a week earlier. So a ferret within his "home", will surely make for an epic showdown. I guess he could be trained to accept the ferret, but it'll be tough. Their instinct isn't to hunt and KILL the thing, just to spot the animal so that you (the hunter) can finish off the bird, squirrel, etc., he retrieves and gets a pat on the head and some jerky. My point is he's not going to kill the ferret, just chase him around the house almost without control. There in lies the issue and danger (especially to furniture, lamps, etc). They're amazing dogs and I love my boy to death, but that'd be like keeping a crate o' twinkles away from fat kid. It's just mean and not a good fit

Have to agree - my Britt grew up with a cat and to this day terrorizes the cat to the point where the cat won't leave his master bedroom. Prey drive is too strong. A ferret though? That looks way too much like a squirrel. If you want to keep your energetic, over-zealous Brittany still for 2 hours, put her under a tree with a squirrel in it. I would NOT RECOMMEND AT ALL. Trouble waiting to happen.

My female Britt is 11 1/2, and has a total of six total tree rat kills, and two rabbits that I am aware of. All in the back yard. No small fuzzy rodents are safe around my house.

Brittanys do not have a very strong prey drive for being hunters. Brittanys that do have strong prey drives are usually not trained or disciplined to behave around other animals. Brittanys that are well adjusted and socialized around smaller animals since puppyhood will not attack. Rats, mice, rabbits, or just rodents do not have a good relationship with brittanys. It's rodents you should be aware of, cats are fine. I would not recommend a brittany with a ferret in the house.

I have a 5 year old Brittany Spaniel who is the sweetest, smartest guy in the world, except with other dogs. He seems to be getting worse as he gets older. At the dog park all he wants to do is run so when the other dogs start sniffing him, etc. he growls. He never bites but he growls and then the other dogs start fights with him. Any ideas to train a 5 year old Brittany Spaniel? Also he is absolutely crazy in the car! Wondering if getting him trained as a bird hunter might help with these things...? THanks!

Could be an issue with too many dogs at the same time - try keeping your Brittany with a smaller group of dogs and see what happens. We use a soft crate in the car with our Britt and she loves it!! It keeps them from jumping from seat to seat and can offer some protection in a crash we like the soft crate because they can get air and see out side make sure you get the right size for your Britt Unless your are a hunter and spend a lot of time training andf in the field don't

We have a 6 year old Briitany. He does the same thing with other dogs. There is no rhyme or reason to it. A switch comes on and he is very crabby. I found this out a doggy daycare/ kennel when he stayed there. Billy is also just the sweetest most lovable thing in the world. I don't understand it. Luckily the kennel is an excellent place and they make sure he is not lonely when he is there. Billy used to go to a playdate and all he did was run too!! Other dogs wanted to play with him and he didn't want to be bothered with them. He gets tons of exercise and lives better than some children and people do. Do you think he is spoiled or this is just a "BRITTANY THING"?

The dog must have not been well socialized when it was a young pup. Dogs that growl and do not bite show signs of stress and discomfort. Most aggression issues are with older dogs. This usually happens to dogs with low self esteems. This will result in shyness or aggression. In the wild, a dog that is weak or stressed will prevent by getting eaten by acting aggressive which makes the other animals leave it alone. I like the crate idea because it gives the dog a secure, comforting environment.

I forgot to actually answer your question. My bad. Bird hunting won't really help your Brittany Spaniel be friendlier towards other dogs. It's a good start because it gets him to become more obediant. Typical trick training is best because as i mentioned before, dogs show aggression when afraid. This helps them build more self confidence. Lack of self confidence is common in brittnays. Teaching them how to roll over, jump through a hoop, agility training is a great activity. Agility training is also around other dogs, so it will most likely help socialize your dog.

Are brittanys good around other pets?

Yes, they should be. But sometimes brittanys hunting instinct will kick in, and if the other animal is smaller and defenseless then the dog may hunt it. However, if the pet has someway to defend itself (claws) then the dog should learn not to hunt it.

I've mentioned this answering previous questions. Brittny Spaniels tend to have a low prey drive, but when not well socialized, they can create a strong prey drive, mostly rodents. They won't have problems with cats unless they were not disciplined or trained to treat the animals properly. Typically when they are raised with other animals, they will leave them alone. If they attack, give them a sharp, loud "no!" and reward them for leaving it alone. Never be physical, they are very sensitive.
