One week later, June 13th, the first Picard Activity Day (PAD 2015) was held in Uden. Although the day started with rain, it was a very nice day with lots of activities and meetings with other Picards and their owners. Jaff'Art, Jaro, Kwastje and Wolf and their owners were there too. Here you can find some pictures of the pups of our litter present.
Fenne was showed on the International Dogshow in Luxembourg on Augustus 29nd, where she earned a CACL point. By earning this CACL point in the Champion Class she also earned her Championship of Luxembourg! This result is posted too on the page 'Results'.
Besides the show results we can report a health result of Jinthe. Her hips were x-rayed and the photo was officialy reviewed by the Dutch Kennel Club, Raad van Beheer. As expected from the photo the results were positive, Jinthe has HD-A which means she is free of hip dysplasia. Of course we are very happy with this result!
Last but not least, good things can be report about Juke du Bois du Pêcheur. His hips were rated as HD-B (a good result) and his eye exam showed no eye diseases. Also, he passed is confirmation which is required in France (where he lives) to receive a complete pedigree. More information about Juke can be found on the webpage of his owner. The link to her webpage can be found on the page 'Links'.
May 24th, 2015 - The Dutch Championship Clubmatch of the PHCN was held on May 16th in Herkenbosch. It was a great day (despite the Dutch weather). Fenne was shown in the Champion class females, which she won with an excellent judgement and report. Jinthe was shown in the Junior Class females, in a large group. She became 2nd (excellent judgement), with a very good report too. The judge told why he placed which dog where, and he was very content with Jinthe so we are very proud!
Yesterday, Jinthe was shown on the Pinkstershow in Arnhem. Again she received an excellent judgement and with that she became best female Junior Class. She also won Best Female (BOS) and she earned her third CAC point. Because she won the female Junior Class for the third time, she is now a Dutch Junior Champion!! A very good result on only 14 months of age. She also has earned enough CAC points already to become a Dutch Champion. However, she is not old enough yet to earn the title. For that we have to wait until she is 27 months old.
The latest results are added on the 'Results' page.

Oktober 9th, 2016 - A lot of work it was, but here it is: our new website! Much is still the same, but we needed more space to place information. Joppe is no longer available for rehoming. He will stay with us. After 2,5 years we love him too much and he loves us and Fenne and Jinthe too much, to seperate him from us. Besides some information about Fenne, information about Joppe en Jinthe is added. Also, they got their own photoalbum, who can be found under 'Photos'.
Since Oktober 2015 (last update) a lot has happened. We went to several shows with Fenne (see Show results Fenne). The most special show for us has been Crufts 2016 (England). For the first time in history the Berger Picard could be showed on Crufts. This meant they stood in the ring together with Pumi's, Swedish Lapphunds and Bergamasco's to compete for placing. In England, dogs don't get an individual rating, but compete for 5 prices per class. Fenne stood in the ring with 10 other females and she earned the third price. We are very proud! HERE you can find some photos of Crufts.
Joya's hips were x-rayed with good results. She got the score HD-B. All results of the puppies born in our kennel and communicated with us, will be published on this website. Joya's results are added on the J-Litter page.
About showing, we have some good news about Jinthe and Juke (living in France). Jinthe earned her last point for becoming Dutch Champion at the show in Rotterdam! Juke also gained enough points to be a Dutch Champion. In December 2015 he earned the first three points during the Holland Cup (BOB) and the Amsterdam Winner (BOS). During the weekend of 1 and 2 Oktober 2016 he came with his owner from France to try to earn the last point. And with success. Both days he won BOB with CAC and CACIB points. On sunday, as icing on the cake, he was selected in breed group 1 and earned a 5th place in a large group! Congratulations, Juke and owner!!
Because we are very proud of the two Dutch Champions from our first litter, we let a professional photographer take a picture from them together.
Oktober 16th, 2016 - Yesterday, we visited Joya 'yellow girl' and her owners. It is so nice to see how our 'pups' still recognize us and how happy they are when they see us. Joya is a very lovely lady and loves to jump around. HERE you could find a photo album with some pictures of Joya we took yesterday.
May 22nd, 2017 - At the International Dogshow Dortmund, on 19 May 2017, Fenne earned the last CACIB point for the title International Show Champion! She also won the titel Frühjahrssieger 2017 and became best female (out of 4 females). Again a great result, with a great last remark: sehr liebes wesen (translated: very sweet character).
December 2016 - We visited Jaff'Art, know as puppy green in the litter, at the end of december. He too was very happy to see us, when he recognized us. Jaff'Art is grown up to be a sweet guy and his family is very happy with him.
