More details about the Picardy Spaniel

Picardy Spaniel: Origins and history

Considered as one of the oldest and most capable spaniel breeds, the Picardy Spaniel was a prized companion and hunting dog of the French aristocracy. The breed became even more popular after the French revolution. After the revolution, hunting was no longer an exclusive right of the nobility, meaning that many working-class farmers and hunters came into contact with these highly prized working dogs. The Picardy Spaniel is still very much a working dog and is virtually unseen outside of its native France. This means it has yet to be recognised by UK kennel clubs.

FCI classification of the Picardy Spaniel

  • Group 7 - Pointing Dogs

  • Section 1 : Continental Pointing Dogs

Training a Picardy Spaniel
