I hope someone adds info about Brittany's. I think they look fab dogs, but I don't know a huge amount about them. The ones I have seen have been more roan colour than the parti colour. And I thought they were very very cute. I like the idea of a smaller dog, I like gun dogs, but I hate cockers for their hair. Brittany's seem to have manageable hair. I just don't know anything about their personalities.

They're probably the breed out of the four that I know the most about, being the most common of the four at our clinic.

I quite like the ones I know but I prefer the wash-and-wear type coat of the other breeds.

Obviously you should just get one of each. The end.


Ok, my mom's boss has a V. He had herders for a while (mainly ES), then he started to focus more on hunting and had...man, he was a pointer of some type, not sure what. Now, with his kids getting older and more involved with the dogs he wanted something that he could hunt with and his daughter could do 4H obedience type stuff with. He ended up with a V who he adores.

There are GSP (maybe 'English' too) that won't be a downsize. Even the V might not easily fit in the crate, lighter, yes, but they can be leggy.

Even the show line Brits don't look too bad on coat. Some trouble with sticker bushes, but nothing like a setter or show golden.

I'll post more in depth after we go to the dog park, but two things about Brits:

My Brittany is GREAT with cats indoors. He loves them. Outside? If they're at any distance at all, they're prey, period, same as bunnies or squirrels. He did meet a strange cat that was very close to us outside one time, and was perfectly polite, but that's the only time that's ever happened. As far as I know he was not raised around cats.

As far as the coat, I LOVE Rowan's coat because it's fuzzy which I prefer over completely smooth, but I would still call it wash & wear. I've gone months and months without brushing him, no problem. On occasion he gets tiny little mats on his leg feathers (the ones on the outsides of his legs, not at the back near his tail) but they're incredibly easy get rid of. The only maintenance I do for him is trimming the extra fur that grows on the end of his tail, and I neaten his feet every so often. Neither one of those is actually necessary, I just prefer how it looks. His coat is a little bit shorter than a lot of the other Brits I've met but from everything that I've read they're still pretty easy dogs in terms of grooming.

The Pointers I've met are tall dogs. Bigger than the gsp but much finer boned. But deffo NOT small dogs by any leap of the imagination.

Realize also, ime, the gundogs like herders can squeeze more easily than bullies.

My malinois tuck into small crates happily.

If a Pointer is on the list get one. They're quiet possibly the most beautiful dog breed, ever.

You're right, there's a GSP at my clinic who is 96lbs. Huge!

I just like how fast a single coated dog dries. I know a Brittany isn't a collie or anything but I am guessing they won't dry quite as fast? But I DO like how much easier it is cleaning up longer hair than the short, stick-straight hairs.

Also, Obi, my current dog, would kill a car outside if he could catch one so that is what I'm used to. It just seems a lot of the GSPs on pet finder say "no cats".
