Braque du Bourbonnais Dog Facts

Braque du Bourbonnais Information

Rounded in every direction, with lateral sides rounded, with parietal bones and zygomatic arches well developed. The axes of the skull and muzzle are parallel, or slightly divergent towards the front. In the past called "short-tail pointer", the braque du Bourbonnais is sometimes born with a short tail (brachyury) or no tail at all (anury). The gene responsible for this characteristic has been identified as being the same as the Brittany Spaniel one, of autosomal dominant type.

The Braque du Bourbonnais is a calm, affectionate family companion. When hunting they are full of passion, cautious, balanced, cooperative and intelligent. They have a remarkable ease of adaptation to the most varied terrains and game. This intense pointing dog has an ability to train easily and quickly. They are people-oriented and not happy if isolated from the family. They need human leadership. Owners must be firm, confident and consistent with the rules. When exercised sufficiently, at least once a day, they make a very agreeable family companion. The Braque du Bourbonnais typically gets along with all other canines.
