The Bourbonnais Pointing Dog is a rare breed from the group of pointers. They are adventurous, hardworking and resilient. They love attention, are not aggressive and prefer communication. The Bourbon Braque breed is little known in the world, despite the fact that it is one of the best dogs. The breed got its name from the province of Bourbon, where it was widespread in the Middle Ages. Otherwise, these dogs would be called short-tailed leopards.
  They were first used for falconry and then for hunting poultry and small game. They are typical domestic dogs with excellent sense of smell and a characteristic posture with their head held high. Movements are light and fast, running at a gallop or trot. They have excellent intuition and follow the trail well. They can hunt in swamps, forests and fields.
  Obedient, capable and patient. They can participate in sporting events and enjoy searching for and carrying things. These dogs are now often bred as companions.
  Representatives of the breed are active and curious, purposeful and patient on the hunt, and calm and affectionate at home. They are sociable and bond well with their owners. They do not impose their company, but also do not tolerate loneliness. They get along well with school-age children; they won’t hurt kids, but they won’t babysit them either.
    These dogs are smart, friendly, and treat strangers calmly, without aggression, and family guests. They get along well with all pets except birds, are smart and easy to train. They choose one master and will obey him unquestioningly. Education and socialization must begin at an early age. Classes should be carried out in the form of games and affectionate communication with the dog. The Bourbon Black does not tolerate rudeness and violence.
 It is best to keep this dog in a private house with a plot of land so that it can radiate energy. Without communication with the owner, the dog will be very bored. If the Bourbon Braque is kept in a city apartment, he needs long walks and at least one trip to nature per week.
