More details about the Pont-Audemer Spaniel

Pont-Audemer Spaniel: Origins and history

The Pont-Audemer breed was developed in 19th century France. While it's exact origins are unknown, it's thought that English and French Water Spaniels, as well as English Setters, were thrown in the mix when creating this breed. 

Although it never became as popular as some other gun dogs, the Pont-Audemer was still considered as a first-rate tracker and retriever. They specialised in retrieving water birds like wild ducks. They have a real enthusiasm for their work, and a playful nature. 

They're also known as le petit clown des Marais, which translates as the little clown of the marshes.
