Auvergne Pointer: Origins and history

Although the exact heritage of the Braque d'Auvergne breed isn’t documented, it is certainly an old breed developed during the 1700s in France. During the 1600s, the Braque Francais breed was very popular and it is understood that this breed was crossed with other scenting and working dogs in the Braque region. The Auvergne Pointer breed was recognised by the UK Kennel Club in 2006.

As a very intelligent canine, the Braque d'Auvergne learns quickly and responds to training routines. Hunting routines come naturally to him and rarely need to be taught. However, this dog needs to be active so bear this in mind and keep him engaged with varied activities and tasks.
