History of the breed

The exceptional hunting qualities of the Chien d’Artois have been recognized for a very long time. The breed was already very popular in the time of Henri IV and Louis XIII , when it was called the Chien Picard at the time. His diligence and determination in hunting are praised in various works of venery literature, such as the Manual of French Vénerie (1890), by Jean-Emmanuel Le Couteulx de Canteleu. From the late 19th century, a breeder Picard named Ernest Levoir strives to give back to the race of the old type standard, without meeting a success in the mission he has given . Another enthusiast of the region, Mr. Mallard, did the same. Like so many other canine varieties, the Chien d’Artois breed found itself on the verge of extinction at the end of World War II. In the 1970s, Mr. Audréchy, originally from Buigny-lès-Gamaches in the Somme, and Ms. Pilat stepped up efforts to rehabilitate the breed.
