AG1 UR01 CAX GRCH MBIMBS MRBIMBS Double D's French Vanilla Bean won her 3rd Best in Show at the Association Canine Canadienne Multisport show in Quebec City, Quebec in October 2013. Thank you to judge Joy Leiskau for appreciating our girl so consistently!
Gizmo earned her Champion title at the Canine Federation of Canada all breed show in Montreal, Quebec in September 2013. She is the second Berger Picard to earn this title, following Ekeko. Gizmo also earned the first 3 Excellent ratings and requires only 1 more for her Elite Champion title. We are honoured to have received this title from the visiting FCI judges from France and Slovenia!
FCI judges provide a written assessment of each dog based on its breed standard, and rate the dog against the breed standard. A dog must receive 3 Excellent ratings to earn a Champion title. They require an additional 4 Excellent ratings to earn an Elite Champion title.
