Breve storia della razza

The origin of the Bourbonnais Braque dates back to the 16th century in the region of Bourbonnais (France), where it was bred as a hunting dog. After World War II, the number of dogs was greatly reduced. At that time, the dogs were not selected for their hunting abilities or general structure, but for secondary physical traits, which caused the breed to cease to be selected for hunting. Fortunately, in 1970 some breeders focused on bringing back the original Bourbon Braque and, thanks to their efforts, the breed's population has increased considerably. Today, the Bourbon Hound is recognized as a versatile hunting dog breed, but is also prized for its gentle and affectionate nature, which makes it an excellent family companion. The countries with the largest populations of this breed are France and the United States.
