Overview
Developed in France during the 1500's, the Beauceron is a large sheepdog used by farmers to protect cattle, sheep, and family. This breed was used as messengers by the French army during World Wars I and II where they were prized for their abilities in detecting mines, following trails, and following directions. Today, the Beauceron continues to be used by the military and police and are fine companions.
Character
The Beauceron breed is a powerful, solid, and well-balanced breed, the Beauceron is tireless and intelligent. Their movement and gait is effortless, fluid, and gives an impression of gliding.
Temperament
Beauceron's are well known for loyalty and devotion. The Beauceron is gentle, calm, brave, and intelligent. They are not recommended for homes with small children due to their herding instinct. Beauceron's do best in a home with older considerate children. A protective breed, they make outstanding guard dogs, as they are wary of strangers. They do not get along with strange dogs. However, they will accept other animals they have been raised with. The Beauceron does not do well if left alone for extended periods of time.
Care
The Beauceron requires brushing twice a week; more during times of shedding. Bathing should be done when necessary. Health concerns of this breed are CHD and gastric torsion.
Coat
The double coat of the Beauceron breed is naturally weather resistant. The undercoat is fluffy and wooly in texture. The outercoat is harsh, straight, and of medium length. The tail is fringed.
Training
The Beauceron breed requires early obedience and socialization. Training must be done with fairness, firmness, and consistency. It is important that owners of this breed prevent the Beauceron from attempting to become the boss.
Activity
The Beauceron thrives on physical and mental stimulation. If they become bored they will become destructive. Due to their loyalty and devotion to the family, this breed does not do well as an outside pet. Daily exercise and activity are crucial. They enjoy free play in safe areas and long walks. The Beauceron will do okay in an apartment provided they are sufficiently and stimulated, although a large fenced yard is preferable.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Beauceron puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

This Beauceron description seems confusing and somewhat contradictory. The Beauceron thrives on physical and mental stimulation. If they become bored they will become destructive.Daily exercise and activity are crucial. They enjoy free play in safe areas and long walks. Developed in France during the 1500's, the Beauceron is a large sheepdog used by farmers to protect cattle, sheep, and family. This breed was used as messengers by the French army during World Wars I and II where they were prized for their abilities in detecting mines, following trails, and following directions. The Beauceron will do okay in an apartment provided they are sufficiently and stimulated, although a large fenced yard is preferable. After all the above is stated why on earth does it say this breed does not do well as an outside pet?? I live on a farm with horses and other farm animals Due to their loyalty and devotion to the family, *** this breed does not do well as an outside pet??? How can they protect cattle and sheep if they live in doors?

What likely happened was that someone added the "Does not do well as an outside pet." to get a rise out of someone. If a person is truly interested in getting a Beauceron, then they should be spending more time with the breed itself. Reading about it on the internet is fine, but spending time with the breed is key and will give the person a much better over-all experience with the breed. Going to dog shows, and contacting a local or semi-local breeder is a good idea. Asking questions and/or asking to spend time with the breeder/handler's dog(s) will give the prospective owner much more correct information then the internet.

Not typically no, but because of the beaucerons herding instinct, you may tend to see them act accordingly, when near small children. Also if the dog was raised properly, they will be wary of strangers or aggressive towards other people/dogs that your Beauceron thinks poses a threat.

Any dog, no matter the breed should have adequate shade and cool fresh water at all times if the dog is outside. But the best thing is to allow your dog inside to be with the family and be in the comfort of the A.C.

that depends on how much your beauceron weighs. most dog food labels have the information ready. beauceron puppies cost about $2000 as a purebred. generally speaking, depending on their breed or mix, dogs cost anywhere from $100 - $24,000. a $24,000 dog is uncommon though.

I have never seen the reason too because he is so loving and nurturing. Although no matter how much I feed him he will not gain weight. Most of the time you can see his ribs and feel his hip bones. He is current on his shots, but I was curious if getting him neutered would help him gain some weight. Or is there something else I can do?

Ask a vet to check him for worms, heart worms, a thyroid disorder, and other medical issues that commonly affect weight. Also discuss his diet with a vet. Make sure you are feeding your Beauceron enough of a high quality food.

People are telling me that Beauceron's are good watchdogs, but I live in an area with numerous wild cats and pigs, not to mention an "eccentric" neighbor with about half a dozen sheep and 2 donkeys that that she lets "roam the wild"... meaning venture onto our property. Will this dog freak and start barking at night (in the case of cats), and will it attack the roaming wildlife and get mule kicked (or donkey kicked in this case)? I appreciate any response.

My Beauceron feared nothing from bulls, to its favorite meal, cats and squirrels, she even climbed trees and caught birds in flight - what a dog! Loved people and most other dogs. Highly intelligent and will do well with small kids and any animal its raised with. Was very motherly and easy to train. She was the best lived till she was 14.

WOW. I do not live anywhere like that, although I have a four year old Beauceron. I let him come with me every where and he doesn't chase a thing. I'm sure it sounds odd, but he just never has. He plays with the cat and plays fetch but if someone drives by, or rides by he will just stare at them. It also took me till he was 1 1/2 years old to hear him bark. He is still a very silent dog, although the new puppy has helped to make him vocal. He is just an amazing personal companion. I would suggest allowing him to walk around the property so he knows what its supposed to look like. They're very smart.

Yes it might that is why you would socialize the Beauceron with everyone in the family except if you want it just to obey and be loyal to you only.

Yeah I have also have a Beauceron, shes soo sweet to anyone willing to be nice and gentle to her, but if a little bratty kid comes up in theyre face pulling on its ears trying to kick it poking it in the eyes it will bite theyre face. thats why your kid needs to learn how to treat animals. all children do
