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.

Does your Belgian Sheepdog bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Belgian Sheepdog puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

The health issues most commonly associated with the Belgian Sheepdog are hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, epilepsy, PRA (progressive retinal atrophy), cancer, anesthesia sensitivity and hypothyroidism. Not all dogs will get any/all of these problems. Finding a good breeder that is striving to rid these health problems from the breed will give you the best chance at getting a pup that will live a long and healthy life.

Do Belgian Sheepdogs shed?

Yes, Belgian Sheepdogs shed or blow coat at least once a year and need their coat brushed and cared for.

Our Belgian Sheepdog sheds twice a year. We tease about it being twice for 6 months at a time. For the most part, a weekly brushing will work until spring or fall then a daily brushing is recommended. If you keep your Belgian Sheepdog clean, you can even save up the downy undercoat that comes out by the handful and use it for insulating, stuffing or even quilting.

Are Belgian Sheepdogs good with Chows?

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. Belgian Shepherds are all around really great dogs.

I need to know if a Belgian Sheepdog would be a good guard dog in an auto repair business where people are walking in and out all of the time?

Not really. Belgian Sheepdogs tend to be extremely wary of strangers. So lots of people coming and going can make them very anxious.

We rescued our dog, a belgian sheepdog mix from a auto repair shop. For a brief time we had roommates and he was very protective of us and very distrustful and sometimes aggressive with our roommates and their visitors. Exactly like what I've read here, strangers make him nervous, especially in his space.

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
