History of the breed

As its name suggests, the Braque d’Auvergne comes from the region of the Cantal volcanic massif . It is, in fact, in Auvergne that the breed as we know it today was developed and stabilized. Found for more than 200 years in this corner of France, the Braque d’Auvergne is the fruit of important selections through which hunting qualities have been particularly highlighted. The Braque d’Auvergne breed was definitively recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) on June 30, 1955.
