This is an equable and compliant dog which is intelligent, has a sense of humour, is thoughtful, gentle-natured, calm in the house, affectionate, and sensitive.

The Bracco Italianos has a cost of short, dense, and shiny hair. Permitted colour are white; white with large or small patches of orange, amber, or chestnut; and white with orange or chestnut-brown mottling.



The coat of this dog does not require much attention. During the moult you can remove dead and loose hair by grooming with a rubber brush.  Keep its passages clean.



They need to be training with a consistent but gentle approach. They are very sensitive to and react strongly to the sound of your voice. Praise them if they do well. When trained in the right way, they pick things up quickly. Too tough an approach has an adverse effect. It will achieve nothing except for the dog to lose its respect for you. Avoid over-taxing them physically during early growth. In particular limit going up and down stairs and steps.
