Club L'Epagneul Breton & its members are passionate about Training, Competing and Hunting with our Brittanys.
Etched in the thread of these practices lay a strong & proud history of Tradition, Companionship & Friendship.
The aim of the club is to support people who own or are thinking of owning this breed. Conformation and working standards are key in preserving the breeds well built reputation within Australia. Involvement from our members and Brittany owners is pivotal in thriving the breed we love. Here is how we do it !
Training - Our club supports new and existing gun-dog handlers in the training of their companions. From our training days held through-out the year to friendships made within the club, guidance and assistance is warmly available by some seasoned Gundog handlers at our events.
Our Training Days Consists of obedience, game introduction, Field Work and Retrieving on Land or in water. We Customise these activities tailored to the skill level and age of Dog & Handler.
Training Days are a great social event and it is popular to bring family members along to the events. Tea & Coffee is a must before the day commences followed by lunch later in the day. The committee is always willing and able to help with information regarding the breed, and details relating to our training days.
Trialling - To Test Gundog and handler, there is no better playing field then the Competitive Open & Novice Trials held by the club.
There are multiple trials held by the Club per year:
- Utility Gun-dog Field Trial
- Utility Gun-dog Exotic Field Trial
- Retrieving Trial
We currently hold the Australian Title of the Highest to date Field Trial Score.
