This pointer from the Piedmont region of northern Italy is accustomed to the arid climate and mountainous terrain. References to the Bracco Italiano have been uncovered in paintings and literature as far back as the 5th century. Very intelligent, the Bracco Italiano is an avid hunter and needs consistent mental as well as physical stimulation. The Bracco Italiano reached notoriety when they were the prized breed of both the Medici and Gonzaga families. In the late 19th century it was considered very vogue for aristocrats to have a Bracco Italiano to hunt feathered game. They are exceptional family dogs, great with children and happy to be in the center of family action.

Historically, the Bracco Italiano no doubt survived on a diet of hunting spoils and small vermin. Today, the Bracco Italiano is known for its uncanny ability to learn and play hide and seek with small children. Following the ravages of WWl and WWll, the Bracco Italiano dwindled substantially in numbers and was resurrected by a team of determined and committed Italian breeders. They have been bred to be equally adept on both land and water. They are very strong and playful swimmers. The Bracco Italiano has been approved for competition in Companion and Performance events by the AKC since 2010. Most Bracco Italianos are rather pampered today with a bowl of dog food generally not much further away than the family kitchen. Given their reduced activity level compared to their ancestors, the Bracco Italiano needs portioned controlled meals to maintain a healthy weight.
