Docking Brittanys

Following the French lead, it is our intention to retain the breed as it was developed; and that is for working. Therefore, without tails.

We intend to strive towards breeding naturally tailless dogs, and probably from French studs.

The thoughts behind our reasoning; Brittanys are a working breed; they will go into cover that will often be thick and can injure tails.  It is well known fact that a puppy does not have a developed nervous system like lambs (that are castrated and docked).

Docking IS NOT a cosmetic exercise.

HPR’s have been docked for decades.

A Brittany is described as a Cob, having a tail will make it look long.
