I fell in love with the Picardy Sheepdog / Berger Picard in 2011 and got my first Picard, Happy de Hagan Ava (Logan), in 2012. In 2017 I got my second Picard, Pic d’Arlee Nelson avec Bergerpicard (Nelson). I also have a a Parson Russell Terrier called JoJo.
I spent a lot of time in France, which meant I also got to show my Picardy Sheepdogs at FCI shows in Europe. In Summer 2018 we travelled to Ireland where Nelson (Pic d’Arlee Nelson avec Bergerpicard), competed in the Munster Circuit, with his previous handler Lynn Graham, where he gained his first ever title as Irish Junior Champion. Since then Nelson has become an International Multi Champion. He is now handled in the UK by Steve Bennett.
Logan (Happy de Hagan Ava), is happier having fun with agility and obedience work, rather than showing.
All three of my dogs enjoy running alongside my bike, running on the beach and swimming in the sea.
