Kennel ‘Du Pré Étendu’ was founded in 1990, after we got our first Briard in 1986. Since 2001 the typical Dutch breed Schapendoes lives at our cottage too. We live in ‘s-Heer Abtskerke. A beautiful small village in the very heart of the provence of Zeeland.

Du Pré Étendu means stretched meadow which stands for the view from our home. At the end of the garden the sheep are grazing. Du Pré Étendu is a small breeder. We think that the match between the puppy and the new owner is the most important.
If you are interested in a puppy, we would like to get acquainted first. We will take the preference of the future owner for a puppy into account, but matching comes first. The breeding is subjected to the rules of the Dutch Briard Association and the Dutch Kennel Club
All parent animals are checked on health problems and character according to the above mentioned standards. Especially, hips and eyes and character. Ofcourse the beauty standard is very well met.

All puppies are born and raised in our house. During their stay with the mother they can get familiar with many things they will experience in their future live and become reliable and self-conscience  dogs.


All new puppy owners are provided a puppy-guide.
