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.
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.
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.
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Brussels Griffon 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.

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

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!

Our three year-old BG 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 men but classes taught me a lot about their individual personalities.

Griff's are known as the Velcro dogs, because the want to live that way. Attached to you. Not a good choice if you're away for hours because separation anxiety doesn't begin to cover it! They love that much! They make great service dogs, by the way!

My 4 year old Brussels She is given 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? Any suggestions

She was probably a kennel raised puppy on wire where she had no consequences for her potty. Consistency. 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. Good luck

Just adopted a 1 yr old Brussels Griffon. Is it okay to crate him while our Havenese isn't crated? We just adopted a 1 yr old Brussels Griffon. He is good about going outside when we take him, but if left alone in the house he will lift and pee. Our Havense that we also adopted is house trained and can use a potty pad. Is it fair to crate the Brussels while we are out and have the Havanese loose? Will he think he did something wrong? The dogs are left alone for about 3.5 hours in the morning - I'm home for 1 hr at lunch, then another 3.5 hours in the afternoon during the week.

I firmly believe in crate training Griffs. They just make better dogs. Also at 1 year old your griff is just now probably potty trained. This breed takes forever but they DO train. Crate training helps a lot.

is this breed prone to kennel cough My Brussels Griffon has been treated for several months with symptoms of kennel cough. She has had many rounds of antibiotics and is now on theopylinne. She continues to cough all the time. Is this a condition of this breed?

No more than any breed. The more you have them around a bunch of dogs the greater the chance. Boarding, high volume grooming salons and dog parks all increase your chance of contracting kennel cough.

I have 2 5yr old male Brussel Griffons, whom I LOVE, and they BOTH dine off my hibiscus bushes, flowers, buds, even leaves, it has not seem to adversely effect either one, and they have been doing it awhile now. I yell at them all the time, but they act like it is calling their names. We even go in the house cause they go nuts on those bushes. I think I'm even gonna have my husband pull up the bushes after the holiday. Its a shame, cause they are beautiful mature bushes. My vet said it wouldn't hurt them either, but if they eat too many, sometimes they throw up. It is the craziest thing!!!!!

There is a large size variation in this breed. As a breeder - when I started breeding in 1995 I would get a 5 lb mature dog and an 18 lb mature dog out of the same litter regularly. Through the years I have finally been able to regulate my size to 8-10 lbs per pup per litter. But there are still those dogs in the gene pool throwing the varied sizes.

Nope. Brussels Griffons can grow up to 20 lbs lean. Breeders don't say that, they tell you the average. He should look like a skinny rat when wet-if not, he might need to lose a few pounds. Just cut back on his food. They are the best dogs in the world! If you don't want him send him to me!! Seriously!
