The wire-haired Briquet Griffon Vendéen is a high-energy hunting dog. This pooch does best in a home with an active family or single and a spacious yard. They need an hour or more of intense activity a day to keep them fit and content. When you add this hound to your pack, you'll have an animal that's intelligent and loving. They tend to mix well with other dogs but might treat smaller pets as hunting quarry. You'll want to start training and socialization early with this pup; they can be willful and independent. Use plenty of positive reinforcement and a calm yet assertive demeanor when training.
