Overview
Sporting a sort of human like expression, this cheerful fellow is a good companion dog. The Brussels Griffon is good with other pets, including cats and smaller animals, but do best with older children. Sensitive and curious, this is a demanding dog but gives great deals of love and affection to his owner.
Character
The Brussels Griffon is a barker and definitely enjoys doing so. They make good alarm dogs. Intelligent and picky, this breed would do best with obedience classes during early stages of life to ensure a well-rounded and polite dog.

Does your Brussels Griffon 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
Cheerful, friendly, and sometimes moody, this breed can be fairly picky. As with many smaller breeds, the Brussels Griffon can be difficult to housebreak but with consistency, will do just fine. Being that this is a willful and high-strung breed, a gentle but firm handler would work best with training.
Care
Shedding very little, this breed does need a lot of maintenance on the coat. Daily brushing should keep the coat shiny, clean, and prevent any matting or tangles. The beard around the mouth area should be cleaned regularly to prevent and caking.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
There are two coat varieties for the Brussels Griffon. The first coat being rough-coated which consists of harsh, dense, and wiry hair. The second variety is the smooth-coated, which is the opposite being glossy, straight and short.
Training
You must be consistent with this breed, as they tend to lose interest fairly quickly. Obedience classes are recommended, but not required. Make the training fun and you will be sure to keep this dog's attention. 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 Brussels Griffon puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
A lively and hyperactive breed, they still do not require much activity. The Brussels Griffon gets most of his exercise in the home. This dog does enjoy short walks and will do just fine without a yard. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Are Brussels Griffon's barkers?

In short, yes. The Brussels Griffon is a barker and definitely enjoys doing so. They make good alarm dogs that'll tell you when someone is both walking by the house and at the front door. But with positive reinforcement training at an early age, you can train your pup when he/she is supposed to bark and when it is time to stop.

I've never had one that barked and I've had three, ALTHOUGH, I did attend a pet adoption at PetSmart and one dog was a non stop barker and I wanted to avoid that one. Guess which dog was the crazy one? Yes, the Griff!

How do you potty train a Brussels Griffon? We're planning on getting a Brussels Griffon in May from a reputable Brussels Griffon breeder.

Positive reinforcement, positive reinforcement, positive reinforcement. Never scold your pup if you happen to find an accident on the floor. This will only make the pup fearful of going to the bathroom around you/where you can see. So he/she will start to hide to use the potty, instead of telling you that he/she has to go. First and fore-most, if the pup has had an accident in the house, get an enzyme cleaner, such as Nature's Miricle and clean your floors with it. This will give your pup a clean slate as it will take all the smell of potty from the floor. Normal cleaner's you get from Wal-Mart will not work. Next, have your puppy in a crate, or leashed to you at all times. Do not allow your pup to wander through the home un-supervised.

Get a kitchen timer and set it to go off every 2 hours. When the beeper goes off, take your pup outside to potty. Praise him/her with treats and affection when he/she goes potty outside. If he/she doesn't, bring him/her back inside and wait 20 minutes and repeat. If you are at work through the day, have him/her either outside in a secure area (kennel) or have him/her in a crate inside. But make sure there is someone to let your pup out to potty every 4 hours. Limit the amount of water your pup has before bed-time, such as 2-3 hours before bed. Good luck!

I have had two Brussels Griffon. I have not had a problem with either one. In two days, they were both trained with their doggy doors to the enclosed yard. They are very smart but like children, you have to be consistent. Once you have one, you'll never get another breed. They don't shed and listen well.

I have 3 wonderful Brussells. All trained quickly and are the biggest joys in our lives. Our little female is just smitten with my husband and our males are the apple of my eye. Would not trade them for the world.

I think it's more the human that needs 'training' than the dog! Just remember the puppy/dog is just like a child when they gotta go, they gotta go! You can't 'program' a dog to potty when it's convenient for YOU! - if you wouldn't do it to your child (leave in a crate/playpen for hours on end, act like they are a robot or toy that can be turned off and on when it's convenient for you to get them out and play/interact with them) - Please don't get a dog!

Our three-year-old Brussels Griffon has suddenly started disregarding us when we call him, his hearing is fine. He is a very stubborn dog, deeply devoted and smart - but head strong. He also suffers from separation anxiety. Changes to our day to day routine also seem to throw him off balance. If we do something he enjoys even once he expects it everyday. He will actually refuse to eat for several days if we give him a treat holding out for another

Brussels Griffons although small require daily exercise. A daily walk for a mile or more will keep your dog happy. A happy dog is much more likely to cooperate with you. Obedience classes are also fun for you Griffon. I have 5 little stubborn males, but classes taught me a lot about their individual personalities.

Griff's are known as the "Velcro dogs" because the want to live attached to you. This breed is not a good choice if you're away for hours because they are prone to developing serious separation anxiety. They make great service dogs, by the way!

I wonder if he's gotten "comfortable" in your home and is now wanting to be the "boss" and have things done his way? I've had three Griffs, two females and one male. While they have certain traits such as being velcro dogs and favoring one human more than the others, they do have different personalities. I am wondering if he's trying your patience to get what he wants because Griffs can be head strong. My females were very demanding compared to my male. I'm not an expert, but I've had other breeds and the Scotty/Schnauzer, Griff males were very docile compared the female breeds I've had, which were Griffs. My Giant was very dominant. It's the breed and he being male. My sister's female Wire Haired Terrier and my mother's female Boston Terrier were very dominant and fought. My sister's male Pug was very docile. He followed his dominant Wire Haired sister's lead. My female Griffs were the boss. The first female Griff I had would fight with the Giant Schnauzer to get her way, my male Griff was laid back. Of course, I did not let the the big one and the small ones come together unless I was in the middle and protecting the little ones (photo pictures and they were usually not near each other). One bite from the big one and it would have been curtains. The Giant was so jealous because the little ones were given preferential treatment and he wanted to be the big baby. Anyway, I got off topic. I honestly think your Griff is playing mind games with you and he wants what he wants and is leading you around to play by his rules and not by your rules.

Yes, the Brussels Griffon is considered a hypoallergenic breed of dog.

My Brussels Griffon never shed, I've had two I bought as puppies throughout the years from reputable breeders.

I had a Brussels and he shed continuously throughout the year. Not a lot, and it was a fine hair, but he did shed.

My 4-year-old Brussels is giving me lots of love but has a housebreaking issue. I got her when she was 3-1/2, and my vet suggested I crate her. But she even potty's in her crate. What is going on?

She was probably a kennel raised puppy on wire where she had no consequences for her potty. Keep going with the crating and doggy doors help a lot with this breed too. Straight from the crate to outside for as long as it takes to do her business (both). This breed takes an incredible amount of time to break.
