Belgian Sheepdog Dog Temperament

Ever watchful and on the move, the Belgian Sheepdog glides in large circles. He is playful, alert, watchful and protective, a tough, independent and intense dog. He can be aloof with strangers and some can be domineering. This breed is intelligent and biddable, but independent. He is protective of his home and family.

Belgian Sheepdog Dog Care

The Belgian Sheepdog needs a good deal of exercise, either a good long jog or a long, strenuous play session. He needs room to move during the day and does best with access to a yard. His double coat needs brushing and combing twice weekly, more when shedding.
