Braque Du Bourbonnais Puppies

The Braque Du Bourbonnais is a purebred dog breed. This doggo goes by several other nicknames, such as the Bourbonnais Pointer, Pointer of Bourbonnais, French Pointer, and the El Braco Du Bourbonnais. Initially bred in France in the 1500s, this doggo was first developed for hunting. They’re a good family companion dog today since they’re affectionate, gentle, and adaptable.

Where to get Braque Du Bourbonnais Puppies

You can find this dog breed anywhere you can adopt dogs. For example, you can first try calling your local animals shelter or breed rescue organization. They might have Braque Du Bourbonnais puppies, adults, seniors, or mixed breeds available for adoption. It’s always a great idea to adopt and not shop, so this is a good place to start. Tora…

Otherwise, you can go through a reputable breeder. The American Kennel Club recognizes this dog breed since they’re purebred. So, you can begin your search for ethical breeders on the AKC Marketplace.

You’ll be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because of the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with their vaccinations
  • Want to meet with you in person to allow you to meet the dogs and the liter and also to get to know you
  • Be open and honest with you regarding any questions you have about the puppies, the dogs, the breeder, the breed, or the breeding or adoption processes
  • Allow the parents and the puppies to live in their home as part of the family, kennel-free (aside from crate training)

In addition, an ethical breeder will health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding to ensure it’s healthy and safe to do so. Then, they’ll get the puppies tested. Also, they’ll have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption.

So, if you find a breeder that doesn’t do the above, then you’ll want to avoid working with them. For example, they might be a backyard breeder or a puppy mill, and they don’t breed the dogs under healthy or safe conditions. Also, their main goal is to make a profit from the puppies rather than finding them good homes. 

The Cost

The average cost for Braque Du Bourbonnais puppies is about $1,500. However, the cost can be more depending on a few factors. For example, the breed’s location, the time of year, the number of puppies in the litter, and the breed’s popularity can affect the cost.

Appearance

Braque Du Bourbonnais puppies will grow to be medium-sized dogs. For example, they can grow about 19 to 22.5 inches tall and weigh between 35 and 53 pounds. In addition, they have a short and smooth coat that can come in a couple of coat colors and markings. For instance, this breed can have a chestnut, fawn, or ticked coat.

Temperament

This doggo is a great family companion dog. However, Braque Du Bourbonnais puppies are cuddly on their terms. Regardless, they’re typically loyal and affectionate with their family members. Also, they’re good around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people. However, they’ll prefer the company of another dog rather than young children.

This dog breed needs early socialization and training. Luckily, they’re eager to please, so they’re easy to train. Also, they’re an average watchdog and will only bark to alert you of something or someone. Otherwise, they’re relatively quiet pups.

Finally, they have high energy levels and will better live in a bigger house with a fenced-in yard rather than an apartment. 

Braque Du Bourbonnais Puppies – Veterinary Needs

Your doggo should go to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup. However, you can bring them to the vet more often than that during their first year. This way, you can keep track of their growth and development and keep them up to date with their shots and boosters.

However, this breed is prone to getting specific health issues, such as:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Patellar Luxation
  • Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)
  • Cleft Palate
  • Pulmonic Stenosis
  • Demodectic Mange
  • Entropion
  • Ectropion

This doggo has an average lifespan of about ten to 12 years with proper care. 

Diet

Whether it’s high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand, or homemade dog food, you can give it to this doggo. First, however, talk to your vet about feeding your pup and get their approval. Also, the dog food should be appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism.

Grooming

Due to their short and smooth coat, grooming is low-maintenance. You won’t need to worry about bringing them to a professional grooming salon regularly. Instead, you can bathe them as needed at home. However, they do shed a little bit, so you’ll want to keep up with brushing their coat at least once a week to keep the loose hairs under control.

In addition, be sure to keep up with brushing their teeth, cleaning their ears, and trimming their nails regularly.
