The Brittany Club of Great Britain was first mooted in 1984 by the late Mr Stanley Smith, who had brought the first four specimens of the breed into the U.K. two years earlier. Stan was President of the Club for a number of years until his passing.
The inaugural Meeting, KC Registration, and first Show were in 1986 and the Club celebrated 20 years of Registration and 10 years of Championship status in 2006, with a Special Anniversary Weekend.
The aim of the club is to encourage breeding the true type of Brittany, ensure adequate classification at shows, and promote Field Trials. The Officers and Committee are always willing and available to help and advise members with any aspect of training or rearing Brittanys, or to discuss the breed in general. We place particular importance on the Breed’s duality. This is not just a show dog, or a working dog, it is a dual purpose dog as in France.
The Club welcomes all owners and prospective owners of this most versatile and enjoyable breed of dog – The Brittany. If, however, after reading the information on the site, there is a question which remains unanswered, please feel free to contact any Committee Member of the Brittany Club of Great Britain – no matter how silly or inconsequential it may seem to you. The more you ask, the more you learn, and we are all devotees so will be only too happy to talk to you. A list of all the present Committee Members is given elsewhere on these pages, along with their contact details.
