Did you know? Of all the sporting dog breeds, the Brittany is the leggiest of all. Indeed, in this breed, the height at the shoulder is the same as the length of the body.
The Brittany's long legs coupled with its light bones contribute to this breed's remarkable agility and speed. These dogs are known for their very quick ground-covering side movement at the trot. When trotting, a Brittany's hind foot steps into or beyond the print left by the front foot.
