I first met a group of Picards at a dog event more than 20 years ago, I remember being amazed by their wonderful ears. Back then the internet was not what it is today and although I tried I never managed to track down a breeder in the UK and I didn't want to do quarantine. So, that wish was put on the back burner and many years passed.

Fast forward to the end of 2019 and I found myself following many Picards on Instagram and falling back in love with them. The search began.....

I naturally thought I would either get one from the UK or perhaps go to France however after a lot of research I decided a French raised puppy would not be what I was after since I wished to show. Litters in the UK are of course very hard to come by so Denmark it was.

Importing was not an easy process & was very stressful, I was going to fly her over but that would have meant an overnight stop in Amsterdam which I didn't think was fair on a young puppy so I set about finding a road courier instead. I could not believe how many had no idea about the current import enforcements considering it's their job. One company even thanked me for telling them and then changed their processes accordingly! Another one who I'd been in contact with for months about it all turned around a couple of weeks prior to travel to tell me that they are now going two weeks later than planned and could only get her to Calais where I would have to pick her up from which I'd already explained was not possible.
Then about a month before Margot was due to travel DEFRA/customs started enforcing the rules to the letter (which is a good thing to prevent smugglers) but we have previously had 8 years with a million loopholes you can use to get a dog in to the country. It is now not as easy as just getting their pet passport done. Lots of additional paperwork needed.

Anyway, with that all sorted, on a dark, rainy night in February my girl finally arrived home after a 24 hour journey.

Margot is a typical puppy, chewing everything, running rings around the other dogs and general puppy shenanigans. Such a cuddler which I love and my protector when we're out. I am so happy with her and look forward to many years ahead.

Dependant on how things go and of course providing all her health tests are good we are hoping to have a litter from Margot in 2022 - I have already had enquiries so please get in touch if you are interested, demand really outweighs supply for picard pups here in the UK.
