Welcome to our web site!  Here you’ll find information about our club, its activities and events, and (most importantly) our Brittanys!  (You can also link to the TCBC Facebook page using the button above)

“The Brittany is a compact, closely knit dog of medium size, between 30 – 40 pounds, and from 17 1/2 to 20 1/2 inches at the shoulder.  He is a leggy dog that can cover ground with agility.  He is strong, vigorous, energetic and quick of movement.  

His small size makes him easy to carry in a car.  His short tail, which can be either  natural or docked, is an asset.  He has enough coat to protect him from the briars but not enough to catch on burrs to any great extent.  He can be either orange and white, or liver and white, with either clear or roan patterns.  He is not a heavily coated dog, but is lightly fringed.

He works in the same manner as a pointer, but without the great range.  He points and holds his game.  He retrieves both on land and in water.  He is used primarily on upland game in the United States, but is used on both fur and feather in France.

He is noted for an exceptionally keen nose and a very biddable disposition.  Many of the country’s top dogs have been house pets as well as field winners and fine hunting dogs.  The Brittany is a high energy dog who is bred to hunt.  He does need lots of exercise or opportunities to hunt to keep him happy.

He has a typical friendly disposition and is very willing to please his master.  He may be expected to absorb training more easily than some of the other pointing breeds, needing only a sharp scolding or slight punishment.  The natural ability of the Brittany sells him as a breed to many neophytes in the field of hunting as he seems to know better what to do than his master.

He gains admirers from his excellent working ability.  The Brittany, with his shorter range, is becoming more popular as hunting becomes limited to smaller fields with more fences.  His exceptional nose, which guarantees that he will pass up few birds, also helps to account for his popularity.”

Most of the Texas Coastal Brittany Club members are based in the greater Houston area (but membership is not restricted as to location).  TCBC members thus have access to all of the exciting Brittany-related activities that the State of Texas offers.  We extend an invitation to join TCBC to all Brittany lovers in our area!
