Brittany

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.
