Brittany is one of the most energetic breeds alive. This dog is agile, versatile, and stylish in appearance. They are tireless and eager to enjoy indoor games all day long.

This definitely isn’t the breed for first time dog owners, and definitely isn’t for those who love spending hours inside their home. This breed will demand that you go outside and be active.

If you are not ready for that intense commitment, you may want to reconsider getting another breed, that matches your lifestyle and energy needs better.

Brittanys are smaller than setters but leggier than spaniels. Usually, they are standing about 20 inches at the shoulder.

This beautiful breed comes in combinations of white and vivid orange and liver (reddish-brown). These dogs are strong and rugged, while quick, soft, and clean at the same time.

Brittanys are bird-dog lovers with high-set ears making them ready for any type of action. Their eagerness can easily be channeled into dog sports.

Active Brittany will be great at agility, dock diving, and flyball – you name the dog sport and this breed will be ready to leap.

If you are up for it, this dog will be a great training material.

The grooming needs of this breed are moderate, but you should provide regular brushing and ear cleaning. To keep this dog happy and satisfy his need for exercise, provide at least 40 minutes of activity per day.
