Braque Français


The Braque Français is a hunting dog of French descent, which has been bred since the 15th century. Originally these dogs were used for hunting partridges and other small game, but later they were also used for hunting larger game such as deer and boar.

There are two types of Braque Français: Gascony and Pyrenees. Both species have a similar appearance and character, but differ in size and color.


The Braque Français is a real family dog. He is energetic, lively and playful, and loves company and attention. These dogs have a highly developed hunting instinct and are passionate hunters. But when they are home, they are loyal and affectionate towards their owners.

These dogs are intelligent and easy to train. However, they do require consistent and patient training as they can be stubborn at times.


In general, Braque Français dogs are healthy and have a life expectancy of 12 to 14 years. However, as with all breeds, there are some health issues to be aware of.

Braque Français dogs can be prone to hip dysplasia, ear infections and skin problems. It is therefore important to ensure that these dogs are regularly checked by a vet and that their ears and skin are well cared for.


The Braque Français has a short, dense coat that is easy to maintain. It is important to brush these dogs regularly to remove loose hair and dirt. It is also important to clean their ears regularly to prevent ear infections.

These dogs are energetic and need a lot of exercise. It is therefore important to let them walk, run or play for at least an hour every day.
