Grooming

Beyond regular weekly grooming, the occasional bath will keep the Braque Francais Pyrenean clean and looking his best. Grooming can be a wonderful bonding experience for you and your dog. The breed’s strong, fast-growing nails should be trimmed regularly with a nail clipper or grinder to avoid overgrowth, splitting and cracking. Ears should be checked regularly to avoid a buildup of wax and debris, which can result in infection. Teeth should be brushed regularly.

The Braque Francais Pyrenean is a well-proportioned, medium-sized dog with a soft, shorthaired coat. He was bred to hunt the very rugged and arid Pyrenees Mountain range on the border of France and Spain. The breed dates back hundreds of years and is considered the common ancestor to all of today’s shorthaired pointing breeds. There are actually two types of Braque Francais: the Gascony Type and the Pyrenean type. The Braque Francais Pyrenean is the smaller and more popular of the two. He has a natural retrieve instinct and loves water. He is gentle, friendly sociable, and submissive.

Exercise

Options for exercise include play time in the backyard, preferably fenced, or being taken for walks several times a day. Exercise can also come in the form of indoor activities, like hide-and-seek, chasing a ball rolled along the floor, or learning new tricks. Certain outdoor activities like swimming, hiking, retrieving balls or flying discs can provide a good outlet for expending energy. Training for dog sports like agility, obedience and rally can also be a great way to give your dog exercise.
