Resources

The Washington Brittany Club is pleased to provide the following informational Website Links and documents below, as an initial resource for you as you begin your search for Brittany information. The intent of the Resource Page is to increase your awareness of what resources are available in the Pacific Northwest and beyond, along with a comprehensive general training document and puppy contact information. As with all information, it will change over time, please check back for any updates.

As with all research, please do your due diligence to insure that any information or referral you explore, no matter what the source, provides the high quality standards that you and your Brittany expects and deserves.

Your feedback is important. Please provide feedback to the club if you find other resources that would be a benefit to this website.

Hunting or Hiking with your Brittany and the Danger of Wildlife Animal Traps

The Idaho Fish and Game Department created two videos and a brochure as a public service and a warning for dog owners who hunt or hike in areas with Wildlife Traps.  The videos help dog owners identify and avoid Wildlife Traps before dogs are caught, and also demonstrates how to disable the traps in order to safely release your dog, if your dog should fall victim to a Wildlife Trap.  The videos identify and demonstrate the different types of traps, the list of specific tools to disable them, along with the fastest and safest techniques for you to use to release your dog from a Wildlife Trap.

Also included below is the “How to Release Your Pet Brochure”, which can be printed to carry with you as a reference  if you hunt or hike any areas with Wildlife Traps.
