Breed Standard

The UKC recognized the Epagneul Breton breed in 2002 and established the breed standard translated by the  Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) in 2007. The official breed standard serves as a guideline for breeders and enthusiasts to help improve the quality of the breed and avoid perpetuating faults and exaggerations that can affect the health, function and performance of the breed. Read more.


The CEB-US works closely with the United Kennel Club (UKC) in the United States to help preserve the characteristics of the original Epagneul Breton breed.
