Overview
This breed originated in the late 19th century. As herding dogs, the Belgian Tervuren was bred based on such traits as temperament, trainability, and intelligence. However, with the popularity of dog shows, breeders produced a breed that retained the original attributes as well as beauty and grace. Belgian Tervurens are well established in the United States, but is still relatively rare.
Character
Elegant in appearance, the Belgian Tervuren is well balanced and is of medium size. They are agile, alert, strong, and possess an inquisitive expression. This breed is graceful and lively in movement, and is capable of working in harsh weather or rough terrain. There are very few breeds that are more physically striking in appearance than the Belgian Tervuren.

Does your Belgian Tervuren 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
Belgian Tervurens are exceedingly loyal and deeply devoted. They thrive on human companionship and need to be an integral part of the family. They must be given loving attention for if they are ignored they will become destructive. The Belgian Tervuren has strong protective and territorial instincts, and is watchful, serious, and smart. They may also be sensitive and shy. They are good with older considerate well-behaved children. Caution and care must be taken when introducing this breed to non-canine pets. They may attempt to dominate other dogs. The Belgian Tervuren generally forms a close attachment with one or two family members. This is a very impressive breed that requires an experienced owner.
Care
The Belgian Tervuren requires daily brushing and combing to prevent tangles and mats. Bathing should be done once a month using a mild shampoo. They can be dry shampooed as necessary. Belgian Tervurens are prone to epilepsy, hip and elbow dysplasia, progressive retinal atrophy, aggressiveness, and shyness.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Belgian Tervuren has a double coat that makes them adaptable to extreme climate or temperature. The outer coat consists of long guard hair that is close fitting, abundant, and straight. It is of medium harshness. The under coat is soft and dense. The hair is profuse around the neck, tail, and backs of legs. The Belgian Tervuren's coat is generally a base color ranging from fawn to mahogany, while the guard hairs are tipped in black. This breed darkens as it gets older. They are constant light shedders. Females will shed heavily twice a year, while males shed heavily once a year.
Training
This breed requires extensive and intensive socialization at an early age. They have an inordinate amount of energy and thrive on having something to do. They excel in working and competitive obedience, as well as police and guard work. The Belgian Tervuren will become uncooperative to harsh or overbearing training methods. They must be trained with firmness, fairness, respect, and consistency. 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 Tervuren 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 Tervuren thrives on vigorous activity. They enjoy agility and play sessions with their family. They are not well suited for sedentary owners or apartment dwelling. Belgian Tervurens prefer a country setting with room to roam, or a home with a large securely fenced yard. They make terrific jogging and hiking companions as well as enthusiastic and trustworthy workers. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

How do you stop a Belgian Tervuren from bitting everything?

One little tip is to tap your Belgian Tervuren once on the snout with two fingers gently. This does not hurt the dog if done gently, but gets their attention.

Definitely need to get them a toy to focus that activity on, and play very happily with it. Then as the other poster suggested, tap the top of their nose when they bite things that are "off limits" and say "no" then immediately re-direct attention to the toy they can bite, and play with it to make the association a positive one. Repeat consistently. Belgian Tervuren's are smart dogs, if you are consistent, they will soon stop biting off limits things, and concentrate on the things that are allowed. Make sure to play happily with them, and they will adjust their focus well.

Are Belgian Tervuren's 'shy' and perhaps a bit snobby? Mine is 6 years old and he totally ignores about 90% of the dogs he meets, even cute females. I have come to believe he thinks of himself as being a step higher than other dogs and believes he is more human than K9.

I'm not sure about why your dog might be doing this... though I think Belgians are definitely a step above, so he might be right about that. My Tervuren male is tail wagging happy to meet anyone, human, animal or bird and loves to play with anyone who will. He's got a terrific temperament and socializes well, and that is a big blessing. Your dog might be shy, making him reserved acting, or he may not have been socialized extensively as a pup, resulting in this behavior as an adult. But, no, in my experience this isn't really a breed thing, it's more personal.

My Belgian Tervuren, Esprit, has been having extreme neck stability problems for the past few months as well as Osteoarthritis. She is in her 15th year. I would like to find some kind of non-invasive treatment for her as she is quite disoriented in her movements.

My Belgian Tervuren had an injury and I used many treatments as follows: chiropractor adjustments, and acupuncture, liquid glucosamine and chondroitin, shark cartilage and shark oil. Get the supplements from a farm supply or online as it is much cheaper.

You are so lucky to have your Belgian Tervuren for 15+ years. The best to you both.

I have an American Eskimo male who is 13 and a half. He developed arthritis and can't jump anymore, but he's doing fine. My vet put him on Rimadyl once a day and he appears painless and up to his old tricks except for not being able to jump on the bed and the sofa.

Can my 5-pound male Chihuahua successfully breed with my 70-pound female Belgian?

I'm not sure this would work at all though some dogs can get really creative in this area. Are you thinking of intentionally crossing these two? Because that would be a strange combination of traits. Are you wondering if you need to fix one of them to prevent an unplanned litter?
