Overview
The Dutch Shepherd breed originated during the 1800's in the Netherlands as an all-purpose dog. They were adept cart-pullers, herders, police dogs, and used for guarding. The Dutch Shepherd is considered to be very rare in North America, and is limited in their native Holland. They are highly prized for their quick reflexes and capabilities.
Character
The most distinctive feature of the Dutch Shepherd is the brindled coat. This breed is powerful, muscular, well-proportioned, and of balanced build. Dutch Shepherd's possess an expression of intelligence.
Temperament
The Dutch Shepherd is affectionate, lively, obedient, reliable, and faithful. They typically bond closely to one family member, although they are loving to their entire family. The Dutch Shepherd breed is protective and attached to their family, home, and territory and make excellent guard dogs. They are alert, active, and enthusiastic workers. They do best in a home with considerate children. Dutch Shepherd's do well with other dogs and other household pets. This breed will become destructive if bored or lonely.
Care
The short-haired and long-haired varieties of coat require regular brushing to remove dead and loose hair. The wire-haired coat must be professionally plucked twice a year. Bathing should only be done wehn absolutely necessary. Due to the rarity of the Dutch Shepherd breed there are no known health issues.
Coat
The Dutch Shepherd comes in three different varieties: Wire, Long, and Short. The Wire-Haired is coarse and of medium length. The Long-Haired is harsh, straight, flat, and long. The Short-Haired is dense, short in length, and of fine texture. All three coat types are weather-resistant.
Training
The Dutch Shepherd requires a dominant handler. This breed learns quickly and training must be varied to keep them interested and occupied. They excel in obedience, police work, military work, and guarding. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, and consistency.
Activity
The Dutch Shepherd breed is not recommended for those with sedentary lifestyles. The Dutch Shepherd thrives on exercise, activity, and having a job to do. They are not recommended for apartment living and do best with a large securely fenced yard or rural setting. Physical and mental stimulation is absolutely crucial. They excel in agility, herding, obedience competition, and field trailing. Dutch Shepherd's also make excellent walking and jogging companions provided they are securely leashed.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Dutch Shepherd 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.

You need to contact your breeder. The Dutch Shepherd is a protective breed, but should not be down-right aggressive. Find an adult dog that corrects puppies. Allow the dog to correct the puppy for being aggressive. If that does not work, then you need to find a positive reinforcement trainer in your area and start going to classes a.s.a.p before this gets out of hand.

I train my service dogs in several events from agility to herding to rally obedience to servce & therapy dog work. To be in preformance events it is necessary to have another handler if it is to painful for me. Do Dutch Shepherds work well for another handler?

I was a handler in the Air Force for 10 years and can tell you that all the Dutches that I worked with did not have any problem working with other handlers.

Most Duchess do work will with other handlers but keep in mind that this is a very very loyal breed. So it is going to really bond to you. My advice is get to get it use to work for other people why you are around. Because it is going to have his or her eyes on you.

I would recommend when taking your dutch shepherd dog on long daily walks with a special dog backpack to carry filled water bottles as weights in. There's nothing better you can give a dog than a job. Kongs mentally are very stimulating and so are specialized mentally-stimulating toys that are not easily figured out/destroyed. You can also teach your dog new tricks. Teaching a dog to find objects works well.

My dutch shepherd was 37 pounds at 4 1/2 months old, he is now 11 months and 65 pounds, which is close to his expected weight.

Hes always on guard and alert. Then he becomes very vocal to let us know what he is hearing. I love his spirit and just want to harness that bark, and also his strong will to run and chase the wind.

The Dutch Shepherd is a protection dog that is extremely loyal to his/her family/master. His nature is to alert his/her owners when he/she thinks there is danger. Contact your local positive reinforcement trainer as he/she will be able to show you how to teach your dog when and when not to bark. His natural predator instincts will be harder to control. Making sure he gets enough exercise is key.

A DNA test is really the only the way. Many dogs can have brindle coats, boxers, pit bulls and dogs that are mixed breeds can pick up various coat colors and temperments tat are a mixture of the parents.

Why do dogs sniff each others butts?

the scent within a dog's butt is a way of greeting each other and identifying the other dog. the same way a person would recognize another person by looking at them or shaking hands.

This is how dogs greet, meet, and identify each other. Every dog's identifying scent is different, and lies within, well, it's butt. It's the equivalent of a human shaking hands or telling their names.
