Different believes both share the origin with these Dutch & Belgian Shepherd-dogs.


It's advised that one should have any previous dog-ownership experience ere getting among these dogs. These Berger Picard owns a very delicate and self-assured-nature. You would find that the dogs are too extremely-loyal and calm. Both get along great with kids, dogs & other animals - particularly if both have been established with them. These Berger Picard remains a very thorough, lively & alert dog.

These Berger Picard would however not perform properly if both are cut-off or either uncared for-and this may lead to harmful behaviour. The breed would do so well protector of their groups, livestock and the territories.


These coat of these Berger-Picard should just be brushed or brushed 2 times per month, particularly when they're shedding through spring & autumn. These fur of the dogs shouldn't be cleaned or either trimmed. It could be cleaned-off when dirty. That is a so light shedding-breed, and both also own no doggie-smell.


The breed is very intelligent, & also so quick on learning. The Berger-Picard breed would need to remain socialised & trained in compliance from so early on. The dogs also own a so stubborn streak, & can too be so temperamental. It's advised on their training-sessions are small and diverse on avoiding boredom.
