KC Pedigree, Medium

Moderate shedding

Not good for first time owners

No, not THAT Britney! This dog hasn't sold over 100 million records worldwide, but it is top of the pup chart of smart, cute doggos! Long called the Brittany Spaniel, the 'spaniel' moniker was dropped in recent years as the dog is more pointer/setter when working than a typical spaniel.


Attractive to ...

Those looking for an enthusiastic, skilled hunt, point, retrieve dog, who can provide the active lifestyle the breed needs.

Not the best for ...

Those who can't give their full attention to socialising, training, exercising and working this tireless gundog.


Brittany Spaniel

Cross between





A bit smaller than a Labrador.

Exercise Needs

High (Two hours or more)
Without sufficient mental and physical exercise will probably do the wall of death around the living room!


Jacket and skinny trousers
Any feathering can get knotty. Some coats self-clean by depositing mud all over the kitchen floor.


Moderate shedding
All canines drop some hair, think of it as dog glitter!

Life expectancy

13 years

Good first dog?



Tailwise is consistently rated as Excellent
