General Description of the Beauceron

The Beauceron is a large French herding dog that is strong, tall and noble. The long, well-chiseled head is proportionate, with the muzzle and skull being equal in length. The eyes are oval shaped and horizontal, dark brown, with an expression of alert confidence. The high set ears can be natural or cropped, depending on the breeder's preference. Natural ears are short and flat, while cropped ears are erect and pointed gently forward. The muzzle is strong and fairly wide with a pure black nose, with no pointedness or snipiness. The well-muscled neck leads to a strong, straight back. The tail is strongest at the base, carried low, with a slight hook that is well centered. The coat is dense and short, a bit longer at the neck area. Coloring can be either black and tan or gray, black and tan.

Beauceron Temperament

The Beauceron is a faithful, fearless and extremely protective breed, even from the puppyhood. The breed is extremely intelligent, and is willing and able to learn. Obedience training is essential, as this powerful dog can become domineering if not properly handled. The Beauceron can be good with children if it is raised with them and taught how to be gentle, but his instincts may lead him to initially herd and nip at heels during play. With the right socialization, the Beauceron can be great for homes with kids and even other pets, and can be trained to listen to commands from every member of the family. Take care when introducing your Beauceron to strangers and other dogs, as the breed tends to be wary of newcomers. The Beauceron requires lots of exercise and enjoys having a task to perform.

Caring for a Beauceron

The Beauceron needs a lot of exercise everyday; otherwise it can become bored, destructive and overweight. A long walk is a minimum, with frequent outdoor play sessions strongly recommended. Other than that, this is an exceedingly low maintenance dog. Simply brush your Beauceron every now and then and bathe only if needed – the Beauceron does not shed much. Keep nails trimmed, ears clean and make sure your dog has all its vaccinations. Health problems are rare, but canine hip dysplasia and gastric torsion are occasionally seen in the breed.
