With reluctance and after careful considerations, for personal and family reasons, we are no longer breeding this beautiful breed. Our wonderful Picard adventure started in 2009. Our first litter was born in 2014 and five others litters followed. We had the pleasure to raised thirty beautiful puppies that were carefully placed in good homes. We kept two of these puppies for our breeding program.
We will actively continue to promote this very rare breed and will keep on educating the public about its many caracteristics. So please feel free to contact us if you need information about the breed. Making the right breed choice is so very important when someone wish to add a canine family member.
2022 Spring Litter
Following Mia's breeding to James Bond, a wonderful female singleton puppy was born on March 31 2022. We are sorry for the families that had reserved a puppy but nature wanted it that way.
You can imagine that when a breeder has a singleton puppy, the attachement is quick and strong; therefore this little girl will stay with us. She may eventually compete in dog shows or other canine sports depending on how she develops, her skills and preferences.
This is our last litter. With reluctance and after careful considerations, for personal and family reasons, we are no longer breeding this beautiful breed. We will actively continue to promote this very rare breed and will keep on educating the public about its many caracteristics. So please feel free to contact us if you need information about the breed. Making the right breed choice is so very important when someone wish to add a canine family member.
The puppies of our 2020 litter are now in their homes.
Please do your homework and research about the breed before applying for a puppy. Learn as much as you can to make sure this is the right breed for your family and lifestyle.
BIS MRBIS GRCH Am CH Mia Bella de l'Avocat de la Tour was bred in February to CH James Bond des Picardiers and gave birth on April 28, 2019 to a beautiful litter of eight splendid and healthy puppies. The puppies now live with their wonderful families.
There are few Berger Picard breeders in Canada, so it is likely you will be put on a waiting list.
We prefer to place our puppies in families interested in dog showing. Our puppies are adopted as pets or show prospect puppies.
Adults looking for a new home
Sometimes, although it is rare, an adult may need to be rehomed.
If you would be interested in welcoming in your family an adult Picard, please contact us by email to be put on a list in such an eventuality.

L'Élevage des Picardiers, being a Berger Picard breeder, take its role very seriously. We breed our females only ounce a year as recommended. This is one of the reasons that we have puppies available only occasionally. Our dogs are registered at the Canadian Kennel Club. Our puppies are vaccinated and microchipped. We offer a heath guarantee.
The Berger Picard (Picardy Sheppard) breed is rare and still very little known in Canada. The Berger Picard is a wonderful dog but it requires lots of socialisation during puppyhood but also throughout his first full year. This is one of the reasons that we take great care in choosing their future guardians. We want you to live happily with your Berger Picard and we want our dogs to be happy dogs.
As mentioned on my homepage « Adopting a pet is a lifelong commitment ».
Take the time to study the breed before you decide to adopt a Berger Picard. It is of the upmost importance to determine if this breed is suitable for your lifestyle. Don’t hesitate to ask many questions to breeders.
As an ethical Berger Picard breeder, your puppy will be socialized from its third week. It will come in contact with different objects, sounds, people and situations. All this in done to make sure that its integration into your home will go as smoothly as possible. Puppies live with us in our house until they leave. They are not separated from their mother, brothers and sisters. They also spend time with their dad. However, you will have to continue socialising him especially during the critical period of 8 to 16 weeks but also until he gets at least one year old. If you are not ready to make this commitment, perhaps it is better to look for another breed. We will always be there to help you and give you the best advice we can to ensure an optimal transition into your home.
