The Beauceron is a distinct breed of dog, highly prized for its ability to protect and guard, but also for its calmness and balanced personality. They excel in reasoning, learning and memory, which make them perfect for police training, and for their ability to act as not only a family watchdog, but also as a pet.
Like most breeds with a herding background, these dogs need to be properly trained to stop them from herding children, but they make great companions and are known for their ability to stay calm and patient with children.
Extremely intelligent and even-tempered, the Beauceron is a breed that serves many purposes.
Beaucerons are easy to groom, requiring a brushing about once a week. With no major health concerns, and their high level of courage, intelligence and reasoning, once trained they make excellent companions, watchdogs, police dogs and pets.
They are best suited to live as part of the family, but should also spend some time in the outdoors each and every day. They require regular exercise, not only for their active minds but for their lean and powerful bodies. Failure to provide this exercise can result in a dog that can become bored and destructive.
The Beauceron is a French breed of sheepdogs, dating back to the 1500s. Very popular as an all-purpose farm dog, the Beauceron not only guarded and herded sheep, but was also a great family watchdog. Later generations used them as military dogs, acting as messengers and mine detectors. Their ability to follow orders and trails made them an invaluable asset to the military and to the police, a role that they continue to play today.
They were recognized by the AKC in 2001 and are showcasing their abilities in competition for agility, tracking, herding and obedience.
