Brittany dogs are intelligent and positive, cheerful gun dogs that love to go and explore nature with their favorite human. They are friendly and full of energy but do not do well when they are left alone. They are quick as a flash and will do anything to get their human excited. They can be slightly sensitive, so consistent positive reinforcement and treats are important. They also really do win the award for most stylish gundog. At home they are eager to play and relax, while in the field they will work for you all day. Brittanys require a lot of exercise, preferably with their favorite humans.
Here's something strange- even though the Brittany is commonly referred to as the Brittany Spaniel, it actually is not considered a Spaniel, as it has more genetic overlap with typical pointers, than spaniels.
