We know not everyone is interested in showing or field trialing their dog and there is absolutely nothing wrong with just enjoying your Brittany as a pet. Some of our members are involved in Agility and Obedience events and really enjoy bonding with their Brittanys in this way. Of course, we also have several members who go hunting with their Brits!. The club occasionally has training days for people and dogs that are interested in hunt tests and just plain ole hunting. "Rye" is shown on the right after pointing and retrieving his first pheasant!
The San Diego Brittany club offers some "just for fun" activities during the year for people who can't or don't want to be involved in competitive events. One highlight is our "Family Fun Day," held at Dog Park in Poway, north of San Diego. At this event, we take over two of the fenced-in areas at Dog Park for the day. We have a barbecue/picnic lunch while our dogs play and then we get down to some serious dog-and-people games. In the past, we've had bobbing for rawhide bones, a wet T-shirt relay race (the wet T-shirts are on the dogs!), and puppy races. We usually have a demonstration of agility and a chance for everyone to try their dog on a confidence course. We've also had a few "groom-a-thons" at some of these fun days. Shown here is "Chase" negotiating his way through a pipe tunnel at an agility trial (photo by Tien Tran.)
We usually have a picnic or potluck or two at some point during the year and we have a Christmas dinner during the holiday season to give everyone a chance to eat at least one meal without a dog begging nearby.
