Braque D'Auvergne

Breed History / Description

The Braque d'Auvergne originates in the mountainous area of Cantal, in the province of Auvergne in the mid-south of France. This is a strong, substantial breed. The short, glossy coat is white with black mottling and this creates a blue impression. The head and ears are predominantly black. 

This recent arrival into the UK was introduced by working enthusiasts as it has proved itself to be an excellent all round gundog


Versatile worker and natural hunter with excellent scenting ability who tends to work closely with handler. This trait, combined with its gentle nature and desire to please, makes a highly trainable pointer. 


Gentle, affectionate, intelligent and obedient. Adapts well to family life.
