We are a small home based kennel registered with the Canadian Kennel Club.
We are dedicated to producing healthy, happy puppies for the enjoyment of future owners
and for the betterment of a breed we have come to love. Our involvement with purebred dogs spans over 20 years and has included many disciplines such as conformation,
obedience and agility. We have also owned and operated a boarding kennel, taught dog obedience and visited local nursing homes and schools.
We first met the Blue Picardy Spaniel at a show in 2003 when we were actively seeking a new breed. We began further research after being instantly impressed by their natural look,
size and colour. Once meeting a few we felt that their temperament was undeniable and our first two Blues, "Ciron and Marne"
came to live at Brighthope in 2004.
Our dogs live in our home and are family companions first and foremost. They spend their time "hunting" in Picardy Park, snoozing on the sofa, going to shows and trials and just hanging out with us.
Our dogs have always been a full time commitment and the Blue Picardy Spaniel has made that easy here at Brighthope Kennels.
