Bouvier des Flandres
With these Bouvier des-Flandres we view a large & powerful dog, which is a broken looking dog. These dog is huge and on good dimension, giving these dog a square-profile. These head is somewhat longer than it's wide. These muscle is broad between these ears & is in correspondence with these skull.
With one broad & strong muzzle, both have a black-nose. With bushy-eyebrows, making the face look extra pronounced than this really is. The teeth appear in a scissor-bite. The breed has dark-brown eyes with black-eye rims. The ears are set-high and could be both cropped or left-natural, they're triangular on shape. These front legs remain straight, & powerful back-legs. These tale is set-high and is cut, in countries wherever this remains allowed.
Both have a nice double coat, that's water resistant, rugged and harsh on the touch. These undercoat is soft and smooth, and very-dense. Their coat is made to give shaggy, thick-beard and eyebrows, providing the breed the look.
There's mixed debate on the real sources of the breed. It's believed the dog was produced by crossing these Griffin & the Beauceron. These breeds origins-hail from Belgium. Their working class, that aren't interested in owning a show-dog, but require a working-dog instead, held responsible. Though this time these dogs differed in size & look, but did still recognized. While this breeds major uses were agents and rescue-dogs, during World-War I. Due on the war, the dog was almost killed-off.
The dog may seem intimidating, although is an obedient-dog, and so pleasant natured. Among the right quantity of use it would be a nice calm dog, responsible, enthusiastic, and even-tempered. This could be an excellent-guard dog & watch dog, which can be easily trained. The dog requires equitable training, that is consistent.
Excellent pack power is needed to bring these out these best of the breed. Both should be socialized well of an early-age, to prevent-shyness. The dog is best with children, remains very flexible, and goes on its own market calmly & quietly. The dog automatically preserves a family-as this is everything it did bred to perform.
Hip-dysplasia is on this breed, eye-problems could occur, the dog owns a high-pain threshold & so every had to remain aware what they might receive injuries which are not apparent.
The breed requires lots of-grooming, brushing these long coat normally and bathing these dog when required. The breed requires a good-trimming at least 3-times the year. Don't let the fur grow too high close to these feet.
With these right amount-of exercise the dog could live in homes. This variety will like a large field.
