The Braque Du Bourbonnais is an ancient purebred dog breed, developed in France. Initially bred as a Pointer, the Braque Du Bourbonnais is still used as pointers, trackers, and retrievers today. However, they’re affectionate, gentle, and adaptable. This doggo also goes by many other names, such as Bourbonnais Pointer, Pointer of Bourbonnais, French Pointer, and El Braco Du Bourbonnais.
In addition, this dog breed is medium-sized, growing to be about 19 to 22.5 inches tall. In addition, they weigh about 35 to 53 pounds. Also, they have a short and smooth coat that only comes in two coat colors. For example, you’ll find this dog breed with a chestnut coat or a fawn coat. They may or may not have ticked markings.
Luckily, caring for their coat doesn’t take too much maintenance. You’ll need to bring them to a professional groomer about once every month or every other month or a bath. Otherwise, they shed a little bit and need their coat brushed at least once a week. In addition, the Braque Du Bourbonnais drools a little bit. So, if you want to keep that to a minimum, you’ll want to wash their face at least two to three times a week.
In addition to grooming, this dog breed requires 30 minutes of physical activity every day. They have low energy levels but will enjoy some playtime now and again. For instance, they’ll do fine in a bigger house with a fenced-in yard or an apartment since they don’t bark much either. If you can’t get in some exercise, a daily walk will do just fine to keep them healthy and fit.
In addition to exercise and grooming, you’ll want to bring them to the vet at least once a year for an annual checkup since they can get some health issues. Otherwise, you can expect their average lifespan to be between ten and 12 years.
