When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys.

Hello, my name is Mara and this is my 4th Bouvier. I hope this doesn't sound like a stupid question. Thunder is a reg. service dog and he goes everywhere with my husband and I. We live in the Berkshires in Ma. which can get 20 degrees below zero without the wind, but the summers are generally cool 70 - 90. It always has a small breeze. My question is I know that he has two coats. I have done a lot of reading trying to find out if shaving him done in the summer months is doing him harm or making him feel cooler. I read the 2nd coat keeps him cooler and not to shave him. Do you have any answers or suggestions for Thunder. We want only what is best for are service dog since he takes such good care of me. Thank You. Mara Senecal

I have trained Bouvs FOR 40yrs, never shave the dog. Cut them very short in early Spring, that will give that shaggy coat a chance to grow back for winter.

I owned many Bouvier Des Flandres' in my lifetime. They say once you own a Bouvier, you would not want another breed. They are very loyal and sweet when trained proper. The Bouvier is not a dog for the first time dog owner, and they are not a rare breed. You have to be very consistent with this breed. They need human companionship therefore, you cannot just leave the dog in your backyard. Once trained, this breed is the most loyal protector and compassionate dog you will ever have.

I also had a Bouvier Des Flandres, and I agree that once you've owned one that is the only breed you'll ever want again. Bozz was the absolute best dog I've ever had. He absolutely loved the water. He'd go to car shows, air shows, sailing, dune buggy riding. He made our family complete. He was a fabulous protector, very well behaved, and loved to have fun. Just make sure you treat him like he should be treated. He lived a great life for 16 years, and there's not a question in my mind as to what kind of dog I'd like to have next. Best Breed in the World! My only question to you is you've had this dog for a couple of years & you don't know what breed he is. Hasn't he ever seen a vet?

I have had 3 bouviers all such gentle souls. Very loyal and so easy to please. They seem to adapt to your life and loved to be loved.

Bouviers have a very high maintenance coat and require a great deal of grooming. They are NOT hypoallergenic. Contact the American Bouvier Rescue League for information regarding bouviers Bouvier.org is the Bouvier des Flandres website and you can connect with the rescue there and make a informed decision. Bouviers require a lot of time and socialization and training. I have had them for 40 years and yes they do shed.

I need a dog capable of being good with young kids and small dogs and is hypoallergenic. Is the Bouvier Des Flandres breed a good choice?

Bouviers are great with children and since they don't shed they are good in the house as long as they get out to exercise regularly. They prefer to be with their family so don't do as well as an outside kennel dog. People that are not tolerant of dog hair usually do not have as much trouble with a Bouviers coat.

My Bouvier lived with me on a 20 acre horse ranch for over 9 years. We were together 24/7. I had to put my partner down 3 months ago. My beloved Bouvier, Lea was great with other dogs, cats, all critters and all the people, young and old who she KNEW were OK. Lea would bark when a vehicle drove onto the ranch or when someone was walking toward OUR house. This was an "attention" bark, which was a very different bark as when there were coyotes or a stray dog on the ranch. Lea ran the coyotes off so many times, they quit coming onto to HER ranch!! I have trained dogs and horses for more years than I want to admit. The Bouvier is not only smart, but this breed is analytical. They make good, sound decisions. I am looking for my next best friend, and a Bouvier is the only breed.

I too have raised and trained Bouviers for 40yrs. My baby (POW)was just put to rest 2days ago. I would have given anything to have had Her for another day or week or month,,but not to have her in Pain. She was a great gentle giant. I need a vacation or two, then I will start looking for a new best Friend. My neighbors are in tears over the loss of my 4 legged clown. People always remember her name and often forgot Mine. Just goes to show you Anybody that knew her fell in love with her.
