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.
Grace and her sons make us proud!
Ch. Lebec's Fall From Grace de l'Hermitage
Grace has proven herself as a mother of fantastic Briards, but that last major eluded her until Spring 2018. We pulled her out of retirement at age 8 just for fun, and we finally got a judge who realized great things can come in smaller packages!
Ch. Lebec's Marching To Zion de l'Hermitage - Grace X Ike
This young boy came back to us and quickly finished his Championship with three majors in Spring 2018. Every point came from the Bred By Exhibitor class, with breeder / owner Claude Marie Cooper doing the honors. Thanks to owners Shande and Dan Catalano for letting us show this beautiful boy. Sion is now living in Arizona with Claude and Steve, learning about sheep. He'll be back!
Lebec's Lincoln de l'Hermitage - Grace X Wallace
Lincoln started back into the show ring in June 2018, and quickly earned both majors from the Bred by Exhibitor class. He'll be taking a break this summer, but will be back in the fall to get those last few points. Thanks to owner Andrea Eldridge for letting Lincoln come play with us!

Yes, we sell Briard puppies and we brag about our Briards' accomplishments in the show ring and at performance events.
However, what we really want to do is help you learn about the Briard, especially if you are new to the breed.
Please take the time to browse the site, and learn if the Briard is right for you. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us -

or by phone (661) 618-8798.
We also love to talk about Briards in general. So feel free to call us. It's always a pleasure to talk about our breed!
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.
