Brittanys (previously “Brittany Spaniel” before 1982) make great family pets for an active family. These dogs are known to be especially athletic and need constant activity to stay happy.
Brittanys are task-oriented dogs, which makes easy to train, but also means that they cannot be left alone for long lengths of time. They are friendly and fun-loving and work best in large families where they can have consistent companionship.
