History of the breed

the   Porcelain   is a dog of very ancient origin, one of the historic French breeds . Known for a long time under the name of Briquet Franc-comtois, he is the heir of the White Dogs of Roy . Porcelain almost disappeared during the French Revolution, but passionate breeders worked to save the breed. For this, contributions from Billy and Grand Gascon Saintongeois, among others, were necessary. It is mainly from the 19th century that China has seen a relative improvement. The Porcelain Club was founded in 1971.

He is especially gifted at hunting ; small game dog, it is used in particular for tracking hare, roe deer and, to a lesser extent, wild boar. Robust and courageous , the Porcelain emphasizes its speed and endurance as much as its flair and its pleasant voice during the hunt, where it particularly appreciates evolving in a pack.

Reminder is obviously one of the main lessons to be taught from an early age, as with any hunting dog. Porcelain is educated firmly , but without any form of brutality. His attachment to his teacher and his natural desire to work and to exert himself are 2 assets to exploit in his education, mainly through positive reinforcement .

The Porcelain is certainly not a house dog . Due to its size and its need for activity, it demands maximum freedom of movement and space. A house with a large fenced garden would therefore suit him perfectly. He is a hunter first and foremost and therefore predestines himself primarily to people engaged in this activity.


Ease of gaining weight

the   Porcelain is a sturdy and resilient dog . He is in good health and does not fear much in this regard as long as he is treated regularly and adequately. There is no predisposition to a particular disease in this breed.

the   Porcelain is an extremely easy dog to care for .

It is recommended to brush the dog once a week . It does not need to be washed frequently so as not to damage its protective layer of sebum. Its hair, ears, eyes and pads should be examined after each outing in the wild to detect and remove any debris or external parasites.

Her teeth need to be brushed regularly to eliminate tartar build-up and the proliferation of bacteria. Finally, if they do not wear out naturally, its claws need to be cut. If you are new to this, it is recommended that you seek advice from a veterinarian or groomer.
