Our 2022 Team Is Looking So Very Beautiful,
Featuring Our Own Ria!
We now live in Bolton, Massachusetts. I (Odile) am French but have been living in the US since 1996. All my life has been spent with animals, with the exception of my years at the university when it was impossible to have a dog in my little apartment!
All our dogs are above all family companions and of course live
in the house with us.The briard has a very strong bond with his
master and needs permanent contact with him. Therefore we have a
limited number of dogs and I breed at a low frequency. Our focus
is on maintaining the breed characteristics and not on producing
numbers. Babies are born and raised in the house, with permanent
human interactions. It is a great joy to see life renew itself and
watch babies develop. You can see plans or current litter under
the "litters" page.
We are members of the Briard Club of America, and support the Vet
School at the University of Pennsylvania. And I am an AKC Breeder
I compete mostly in conformation activities in the US and at times in Canada. I used to also show in France, but have stopped traveling with the dogs overseas. I strongly believe the briard should conform to the country of origin (France) standard as well as to the AKC standard.
I also take our dogs herding at two sheep
farms and enjoy very much seeing them display the characteristics
for which this breed was bred originally. Rebelle, Sage and Aramis,
make their ancestor, Judith, a true shepherdess of her time, proud.
You can visit the page of each of our dogs to learn more about them.
