Beautiful, impressive, large, shaggy, loving, smart, energetic, faithful, and protective - words that describe a Briard. Briards are truly "Hearts Wrapped in Fur", always near their people. From Briard puppies to Briard adults, they are great dogs in the right home. Are you that right home?
Briards are herding dogs. It is their natural instinct to herd that helps form their personality and character. Briards are bred to know where they belong, and to be where they belong. Their job is to care for and protect their "flock", be it sheep, people, and even other dogs. The Briard version of caring can take many forms, some good, some challenging.
My name is Jeanne Lorang, and I am Lebec Briards. I have owned and loved this breed since 1981. Please enjoy this website, my Briards, my friends' Briards, and all things Briard. I can be reached by email, or at 661-618-8798.
We lost a good friend recently
Jerry Werk 1949-2016
Jerry and her Briards Haystack and Philippe were specialists in Therapy dog work. Haystack specializes in older patients, while Philippe is great with kids. And Jerry was the specialist in making it all work. She loved her Briards, and they were the center of her life. Agility, Conformation, Obedience - Jerry and the dogs did it all. But her love was sharing her Briards with those who needed that doggy hug, that contact during rough times. After years of taking her Briards to hospitals, etc. Jerry devised and taught a class to train others in Therapy Dog work.
Jerry was a good friend. We will miss her at dog shows, sharing meals, playing with puppies, and sending out emails with links to great videos! She leaves a legacy of friends and strangers better for having met and known her.
We are very proud of our Hermes!
"Grand Ch. Hermes de l'Hermitage a Lebec PT" is having a pretty good 2016!This young boy is being shown occasionally with handler Martin Cabral, and is proving that looks and working ability can be combined in one beautiful package. He has won a Group1, Group 2, and Group 4 in limited showing. Meanwhile, he continues to herd with daddy Steve.

Looking for a Briard Breeder?
If you are looking for a Briard puppy, you will probably be talking to several breeders. You should be! And if a breeder spends that time telling you about their dogs, about the Briard in general, asking questions to help you determine if a Briard is right for you, and if the puppies they have available are a good match for your home, CONGRATULATIONS!
You have found a breeder to continue to have a conversation with. There are many such Briard breeders in the U.S. The links page on this site is a good place to start your search, or broaden it. Of course, we'd love it if you started with us.
Be aware of breeders who try to discredit other breeders, instead of focusing on their own breeding programs. Make your own open minded inquiries with as many breeders as you can, and then make your decision regarding the right breeder with the right dog for you.
