3 generations of our breeding

All our Briards are family pets and live together with us in the house. They have always been hip scored and eye tested, and all my briards are DNA clear for CSNB. Showing has been our hobby since 1983 and has given us great successes. Not only here in the UK but in Europe also. Temperament and soundness is our prime concern. We aim for quality, not quantity, having had only 14 litters in 25 years and owned/bred 14 Champions with others winning CC's and RCC's.

I am also a judge, and apart from the UK have judged the breed in Fance, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Denmark, Finland and America.

My briards have competed well against dogs from all over Europe, even in their homeland of France. Vastie is the only Briard from the UK to be "selected" in both France and Belgium.

With one of my briards working with sheep and competing in sheep trials in Australia, on top of her showing career, it is nice to see that Beaugency briards can still do the job they were originally bred for.

Primarily though, our briards are pets first and foremost, and I breed only occasionally, usually when I want a puppy myself.

Our foundation bitch, to whom we owe it all. A super character, who lived life to the full! We miss her still, but she lives on in her grandchildren and great great grandchildren.

Vastie Blonde de la Tour St Genin

Vastie Blonde de la Tour St Genin

Vastie has been bought from the world famous kennel of de la Tour St. Genin. She is a real sweetie and fits in beautifully with all the other dogs.

Her show season really took off in 2007, starting the year by winning the RCC at Crufts and ending it as TOP BRIARD 2007.

She had just one baby girl born in a litter from our black boy Matt, and they say the best things come in small packages. Ria, is completely fulfilling that promise and is a real beauty - winning Best Junior in Show at the French club show no less! She topped this by winning her 1st CC at only 13 months of age at the British Briard Club Ch Show.

Vastie's 2nd and last litter was to our Multi Ch Pernod. We have kept a beautiful fawn boy Ritz, who shows the promise of his father.
