After years of being asked to get a dog, I finally relented. I had two criteria for a dog, I wanted a pointing breed, and I wanted a small dog. After doing my homework I settled on the Epagneul Breton. Little did I know where it would take me and I couldn't have been happier with my choice. I started out just looking for a dog to do some hunting with, but as hunting season is only 2 1/2 months, I found myself looking for something more to do. So I entered Vern in his first hunt test. After that weekend I was hooked. I have since competed in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Georgia, Kentucky, Montana, Arizona and in October of 2006 we went to France, where Vern was, to our knowledge, the first American bred and trained dog to receive a C.A.C.T.
Epagneul Bretons, like any of the Pointing Breeds are a high energy dog that need to have a purpose in their life. They are best suited for a family that likes to hunt, but they enjoy any kind of activity that can get their blood flowing such as Agility, as they are a quick nimble dog. They are very personable dogs, and enjoy being with you whenever they can. They are easy to train by anyone willing to put in the time that is needed, as they are eager to please you, and do well with a gentle hand. When properly introduced to the gun and field, they are a fearless and tireless hunter, eagerly seeking out game.
