One of the most frequently asked questions about our Brittany dogs: "Are Brittanys good with children?"

Ruffwood Brittanys have wonderful temperament
and "yes" they are great with kids!

Please enjoy the following photos of our daughter and other Ruffwood Families with our Brittany dogs.

Why is it important for Brittany puppies to interact with children?

It is important for Brittany puppies to be exposed to children for their size and their voices.
They need to have handling by all different people - men, women and children alike.

Brittany puppies also need exposure to different surfaces like grass, tiles, vinyl flooring, carpet, etc.
They need to hear all the household noises and a variety of music.
This is very important for Brittany puppies to adjust to their new homes.

Our Brittany Puppies grow up to be very well adjusted dogs.
