Ariege Pointing Dog: Origins and history

The Ariege breed first descended from old French Braques, yet over time these canines became very rare. The breed has been saved by a group of Ariegeois hunters, who continued to use these dogs for hunting purposes. It was further enlarged during 1990, when a team of breeders devoted themselves to breeding and producing more of them. In 2006, the Braque de l’Ariege was finally recognised by the UK Kennel Club.

Training a Ariege Pointing Dog

Training the Braque de l'Ariège dog is relatively easy, although as a very independent breed, a good array of commands is essential. Early training basics, such as sit, stop and come back, are all advised when the dog is a young puppy.
