Overview
A member of the herding group, the Belgian Sheepdog does exceptionally well in herding and guarding. An intelligent and affectionate breed, the Belgian Sheepdog does best in a country environment, but can do well in home life. This breed has very strong protective instincts and does well as a guard dog.
Character
Attentive, alert, loving, and smart, the Belgian Sheepdog requires firm socialization at an early age as they tend to be very protective of their owners and territory. Nipping at ankles is a common trait for this breed, as they still possess a strong herding instinct.
Temperament
This is a very high-energy breed, and should always have a job to do. If not properly entertained or left alone for long periods, this breed can become destructive. The Belgian Sheepdog can do well with children, but can present aggressive behavior towards other dogs. Does well with other household pets if properly socialized.
Care
Daily combing and/or brushing is required for this long, straight haired breed. Should be brushed down all the way to the undercoat to prevent tangles or matts. The Belgian Sheepdog does shed heavily during warmer seasons, and grooming is particularly important during this time.
Coat
The Belgian Sheepdog has somewhat of a harsh texture to his coat, but it should be neither silky nor wiry. A full double coat, the outercoat should remain coarse yet soft, and the undercoat should be dense and fluffy.
Training
The Belgian Sheepdog requires an experienced handler, and firm training. This dog is very intelligent and is eager to please his owner. This breed does exceptionally well in obedience and working sports as it was originally bred for herding.
Activity
The Belgian Sheepdog would do best with at least an average sized yard but is given proper exercise, can do well without one. Long brisk walks are required if this breed is to live without a yard. This breed does best when off lead in a safe and fenced in area.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Belgian Sheepdog 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.

Absolutely! I would say that they are good with any dog breed you can name, Belgians seem to love other dogs, as well as most animals they are introduced to properly. Their farm-dog background sets them up to have a happy, well adjusted attitude that can "adopt" any species into their family... with a good Belgian, you should have no problems with any animal at all. If it is playful they love to play! If it tells them to back off, (like a grouchy cat) they'll generally resign themselves to leaving it respectfully alone. A properly socialized puppy should get along well with absolutely anyone it meets, even humans. ;-) That being said, a Belgian has strong protective instincts, so if one of their "adopted family members" are threatened, they're going to have a fit about it! Hope this helps! Belgian Shepherds are all around really great dogs. Elizabeth K.

I had a mix w/heavy on the Belgian Sheepdog, 15 years old when he was put to sleep. These are wonderful dogs, mine was around children and would never bite even when his tail was pulled by the kids. Compared to many other breeds, if you work with the dog, they will be the best breed you ever have had. I have raised many dogs, and the personality and intelligence of the Belgian Sheepdog is much better than a labrador.

Each dog regardless of breed has a different personality. More important to find a dog with a personality that is compatible with your situation than to find a particular breed
