SweetWater Blue Picardy Spaniels - California Blue Picardy Spaniel Breeders
About SweetWater Blue Picardy Spaniels
I have been breeding this rare breed of France for 14 years and find them to be good natured, fun loving, bright dogs. They are still what I consider to be a "whole" dog breed and not separated into hunting/show/pet qualities. They are bred to be an excellent family companion as well as having natural hunting instincts. I love this breed because they are athletic and active but they have an off switch when in the home and are easy to live with once their daily exercise needs are met. I am a small hobby operation and only have a few litters a year. I look forward to each litter and rear them in the house with lots of daily affection and attention. I start with great genetics and then rear my pups holistically with a raw diet to start them out with the strongest immune system so they will enjoy vitality and good health for a lifetime.
If you want a top trial dog I would suggest a German Shorthaired, but if you want a great companion dog that you can also enjoy hunting with, I strongly suggest the Blue Picardy Spaniel. I have two dogs that are directly imported from top lines in France and one that is my 14 years of breeding. My website is www.bluepicardies.com if you'd like to learn more about my dogs and how I rear them and then I'm happy to have a further conversation with you. I love talking dogs!
I rear my dogs with a personal touch and introduce them to leashes, car rides, baths, crates and beginning boundaries so that you get a well balanced, connected puppy to start your training with. I do ask for neutering agreements as I am only interested anymore in working with people who want a cherished family companion for their lifetimes.
I do DNA testing to be clear of common genetic issues and also do hips and eye certification. And I am more than happy to supply references so you can ask questions about owning the breed and working with me. And I'm also happy to provide photos of my dogs and litters.

Christine let us meet our dog's mom and dad. We met the litter 3 times before selected our good boy, Mica. She also taught us about holistic nutrition for dogs and Mica's coat could not be more shiny. Mica was easy to train and great with our new baby! We highly rec Christine!

Christine with Sweetwater is phenominal! She is very informative and helped select the perfect puppy for our family. She was highly recommended to us by another Blue Picardy owner. You won't be disappointed. We love our Daisy born in August 2011.
