The Bracco Italiano has been called the oldest European pointer, and its history reaches back as far as the fourth or fifth century BC.

The Bracco, that’s B R A C C O, for all that have not heard of this breed, is a 55-88 pound hound looking pointer. If you haven’t heard of the breed you should definitely look it up online. Bracco’s make wonderful companions but require a lot of mental and physical stimulation. This breed is born to work the hunting fields. Their predatory drive is very high and they typically shine in the field. However, they require a bit of finesse with training. Traditional hunting methods tend to suppress the Bracco’s natural instincts.

This Episode of The Pack Animal Podcast I give a short story to support the trained hunting Bracco’s ability in the field with a scary test of nature!
