Overview
This intimidating breed is rather calm and gentle, but comes off as fearless and powerful. Adaptable to many environments, this breed makes an ideal guard or watchdog. Intelligent and easy to train, all the while keeping you entertained.
Character
The Bouvier Des Flandres is best described as enthusiastic, even-tempered, playful, gentle, and pleasant, this breed can make an excellent household companion. Great with children, but should be socialized from puppyhood with other animals if they are to get along.
Temperament
A quiet and calm breed, the Bouvier Des Flandres is intelligent, fearless, good natured, and responsible. This breed is not recommended for the average pet owner and requires firm handling to avoid any dominance issues. Given the right home, training, and love, this breed would be great for family life.
Care
Having a long and shaggy coat, the Bouvier Des Flandres requires much maintenance in the grooming field. Needing to be trimmed at least three times a year to prevent any matts or tangles, this breed should also be brushed on a daily basis. If properly groomed, this breed will shed little hair.
Coat
The Bouvier Des Flandres is a thick and heavy coated dog with a distinctive beard and mustache. Coat requires extensive maintenance grooming wise. Harsh, rough, and shaggy looking hair is dry and somewhat crisp. Undercoat is soft and dense, while outercoat is rough and harsh.
Training
Consistent training is a must for this large and sometimes stubborn breed. Requires firm training. A quick learner, the Bouvier Des Flandres makes an excellent guard dog and is generally easy to train.
Activity
The Bouvier Des Flandres does best with a large sized yard, but will do okay in apartment life if given proper exercise. A very active breed, this dog must be regularly exercised. Long walks, and running free are recommended under close supervision.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Bouvier Des Flandres 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.

If I were to send you a picture the dog I have could you tell me if he could be a bouvier? I found him years ago and I have never found out what type of breed he belongs to.

I owned many Bouvier des flandress, in my life time,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 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, end is not a dog you can just put in your back yard, like some evil people do, once trained correct, it is is the most loyal protector and best dog you will ever have, to me they are the best breed.

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 loved loved 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?

Yes you have to train it properly, however.

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.

Our Bouvier got along beautifully with our Shitzus like brothers. However, my son has a Rotweiler and she is aggressive so they did not get along at all. Couldn't keep them in the same room together. The Bouvier is very protective of their human. They just need to be trained as young pups who is ok and not same as any dog. The most wonderful loving dog we have ever had.

If raised with other dogs from puppyhood Bouvier's can be great with all kinds of other pets. My older Bouviers excepted my Mini Aussie after a very short period even though he is very annoying.
