Welcome to the Brittany Club of Great Britain.

Welcome to the Brittany Club of Great Britain, we hope you will enjoy browsing through information about the Brittany breed of dog.

On our website you will find details about The Club, The Breed standard, Forthcoming Events, write-ups and pictures of past events and lots more about the Brittany Breed and the Brittany Club of Great Britain.

The Brittany Club of Great Britain was first mooted in 1984 by the late Mr Stanley Smith, who had brought the first four specimens of the breed into the U.K. two years earlier. Stan was President of the Club for a number of years until his passing.

The aims of the Club are to encourage breeding the true type of Brittany, ensure adequate classification at shows, and promote Field Trials. The Officers and Committee are always willing and available to help and advise members on any aspect of training or rearing Brittanys, or to discuss the breed in general. We place particular importance on the Breed’s duality. This is not just a show dog, or a working dog, it is a dual-purpose dog as in France.

The Club welcomes all owners and prospective owners of this most versatile and enjoyable breed of dog – The Brittany. However, if after reading the information on the site there is a question which remains unanswered, please feel free to contact any Committee Member of the Brittany Club of Great Britain – no matter how silly or inconsequential it may seem to you. The more you ask, the more you learn, and we are all devotees so will be only too happy to talk to you. A list of all the present Committee Members is given elsewhere on these pages, along with their county.

Please enjoy our site and we hope you find the information contained herein.

Membership starts from just £10 per annum (single membership) and £15 for joint membership.
