Brittanys have nothing to do with the girl’s name; instead, they came from a region of France called Bretagne. People bred them as hunting dogs and pointers so that hunters could find the animals that they shot. This means that this breed tends to have a high prey drive, so it’s best not to get one if you have smaller animals in your home. They also have a lot of energy, so exercise is crucial. Despite being medium-sized dogs, they’re not great at apartment living because they need a lot of space to run around. An all-around easy dog to get along with, there’s no reason not to add one to your household.
