The Brittany is a sporting dog, principally used as a gun dog. The dog originated from France and its build is fairly square, with the length of the leg being equal to the height of the dog. They have light bones, are very agile, and are always looking for some sporting activity or fun. Their light bones also allow them to cover grounds quickly, which is one of their most lauded attributes.
The Brittany requires a lot of exercise and active owners, and suit the countryside. You can also potentially have a Brittany as a house pet, but you have to be sure to give it daily mental and physical exercise. If not it can become destructive. They are not usually advised for people who stay in apartments. They should be socialized early, or they can become quite shy dogs.
Brittanys are very easy to train, and they are obedient, caring, loyal, and patient. They are a great dog to have with children. Aside from requiring a lot of exercise, which has led to them getting a reputation as being difficult to manage, crazy, or wild, they are in fact quite low maintenance dogs, and they make for great all-round family pets.
