The Brittany Spaniel is used as a companion by many hunters in the USA and Canada, and in France this is a highly popular breed.

The Brittany is a hearty, vigorous, medium-sized, closely knit, leggy dog with a fairly short, lightly feathered single coat. He is very agile and active with an intelligent-looking face.

The eyes are amber or hazel, depending on the coat color. It has a rounded skull of medium-length with a straight or slightly ram-shaped muzzle, a pronounced stop, and a nose that is more or less dark depending on the color of its coat. The nose may not be black.

The ears are short, with high withers. The high-set ears are rather short in a triangular shape, slightly fringed and hanging close to the head.

The tail is either naturally short or docked to less than four inches (10 cm.).
