Braque du Bourbonnais


The origins of Braque du Bourbonnais date back to the Renaissance. This was a breed of dog that was greatly endangered at the time. They were truly revived in 1970 by a man who bred dogs that had been mixed with the original. From that came the Braque du Bourbonnais breed that is known today.


The main thing that this breed loves to do is hunt. You may let them outside, and they will help you discover a rodent problem you may have never known that you had. They are great accomplices for game hunters that need a good sniffing companion that can track prey, as well as catch it.


The Braque du Bourbonnais is not known to have weak health. Their strong bodies are more than able to support them, outside and in. All this breed of dog really needs is normal care. The occasional brushing of their coats, a bath when they're dirty, and a good meal would be all this dog would really need.


The Braque du Bourbonnais is frequently presented in two main colors. There is liver, which is often white and black, and there is fawn, which is more of a tan or peach color. These dogs have strong and able bodies. They also have well rounded heads and big floppy ears.


No matter which of the two colors you have for your Braque du Bourbonnais, the coat will always be the same. Short and thick, but well insulated, these dogs shed a normal amount. All you will really have to do for these dogs is brush them every now and then, especially during winter, to rid them of their loose fur.


The Braque du Bourbonnais dogs are natural born hunters, so their attitude is more directed towards alertness to any predators or prey that may be lurking about. If you take them at a young age and socialize them with other people and dogs, you will have a much friendlier pup on your hands. However, Braque du Bourbonnais dogs are not naturally aggressive.


The Braque Du Bourbonnais is a breed that is capable of learning certain tricks and tasks if time is spent early on to train them. They must be socialized, as their natural urges to hunt can interfere with good people skills. They can adjust in their younger life as puppies, if they are given patience.
