History

The Pont-Audemere Spaniel is originally from the Pont-Audemer region, looking for the Marais Vernier, in Normandy, where it is traditionally used for hunting waterfowl. In 1886, the Kennel Club of Le Havre began to select him. After the Second World War, only a few copies of this small brown spaniel remained and crosses were made with the Irish Water Spaniel to save the race.

The Pont-Audemere Spaniel It's very weird. The total population of the breed is about three hundred individuals in France. Some breeders perpetuate the breed, mainly in Normandy and Picardy.
