A small dog with exceptional qualities
Callac, the capital of the Brittany spaniel
The Maison de l'épagneul breton (Brittany spaniel cantre)
Callac is the capital of Brittany spaniels, also known in English simply as Brittanys. The village, where there are a large number of breeders, has been involved with this particular dog for over a hundred years. Originally from the nearby Argoat region, this faithful animal is a cross between a Scottish setter and a local breed, known locally as the 'coalman's dog'. The museum has put together a poignant tribute to the breed with an interactive, instructive set of videos, photographs, copies of paintings by Riab, sculptures by a real fan of the breed, Richard Fath. Then there is a 3D simulation of the breed's particular gait when running, and even a console where you can compare man's sense of smell with a dog's. Go with all the family - with or without the dog!
