The French Brittany Club’s motto is “Un maximum de qualites dans un volume minimum” – “maximum qualities in a minimum size”. The coat is flat, dense, fine and slightly wavy with light feathering. His colouring harks back to his origins; orange, liver or black all with white, tricolour or roan of any of these colours.The first Brittanies were imported to the UK in 1982 and their growth in numbers has been slow and steady; enthusiasts are keen to preserve the working qualities of the breed and plenty of working opportunities are organised by the Breed Club. Their size and energy makes them well-suited to Agility and their keenness to please suits them well to Obedience.
