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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Annual cost of owning a Brussels Griffon puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Brussels Griffons true ownership cost. 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. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

Anonymous asked:
We have always had female dogs and now are ready to purchase We are both retired so we are ready. I have researched and also recently spoke to a breeder(different breed) and she said that if I purchase a female, I will have bought it for my Husband, which is not what I want? I want one for me. She said that I should get a Male and Neuter him at exactly 5 months so he does not lift or mark his territory? Can you tell me if this is true. Now I am confused as to whether to buy a female as we have always done or go for a Male? Thank you

Please stop speaking to that breeder, he/she does not know what they are talking about and they are adding detrimental information into the dog world. First off, it does not matter if you get a male or female dog.The dog will bond with each person in the house depending on how much they interact with the dog. If you feed, walk, train and spend time with the dog, then the dog will bond to you. If your husband does it, then the dog will bond with him. However, every dog is different and it is best to go and meet the puppies and choose one that fits with your family and is attracted to you as a couple. When sitting with a litter, some puppies after a few minutes will wander off to play together or alone, while at least one should choose to stay with you. That is the puppy to choose as he/she fits with your energy. As for spaying/neutering; the dog should be altered when he/she is 3/4 to full grown, which for this breed will be around 8 - 10 months of age. Not only will this allow the dog to have enough growth hormone to grow properly, but it will allow the dog to be able to handle the surgery and the 'lack of stimulation/exercise' afterwards easier as the dog will have more self control. A male dog, no matter if he is neutered or not will mark his territory, but as long as they are properly house trained, they will not mark in the house or anywhere that you deem inappropriate. As for lifting his leg, most male dogs learn this behavior naturally and it does not matter if the dog is neutered or not. There are some male dogs that never learn this behavior, but it has nothing to do with when they had been neutered; it all is from the maturity level and temperament of that specific dog.

Why is their such a wide range in prices in Brussels Griffon's? When besides the owner I find basically their the same puppy? Price from 500 - 1800.00.

The price of a puppy is going to depend on several things.This includes how many breeders are in the area breeding the same breed of dog, the quality of the puppies (registered vs. non-registered), as well as the pedigree of the parents (champions in confirmation, obedience, ect.); and if the puppy is deemed show-worthy or not. Another factor is the amount of money put forth to raise the litter, including if all health exams were done on both the dam and sire before the litter, and if the litter has had their shots, exams, microchipped, and health tested before going off to a new home as well. Asking the breeder why they are asking their price for their puppies will give you a lot of insight on how they price their puppies and why their price is that. It will raise either green or red flags when choosing the right breeder for you.

My Brussells died April 1st. He was 11 and a little loving dog who groomed my other two dogs an Affinpinsher and a Yorkshire. Brussells was 11, Affinpinsher 7 and Yorkshire 5 and a cat 13... All got along wonderfully but Brussells was the anchor to my little family.... The other two dogs have gone through a difficult period however my friends bring their dogs (all same size) and they get along wonderful. However, when the dogs leave my dogs, he acts very sad(depressed?).. I believe it's time to get another Brussells but I want to know if a puppy is better(other dogs they play with are 5-7 yrs old).... I'm Leary about getting a Brussells that has been given up for adoption not knowing the reason. Help



I'm sorry for your loss; and it is clear that your dogs are still going through the grieving process. You may want to wait a little while longer for your dogs to come to terms with their friend not coming back before getting another dog. However, at 7 and 5 years old; a puppy is neither a good or bad idea. The positives of getting a puppy is that the pup will grow up with older dogs and he/she can learn good habits from them. But a negative is that the pup will have much more energy then your other two dogs; so you must make sure that you exercise the pup separately so that he/she doesn't bother your older dogs to play all the time. Rescue dogs are surrendered for many reasons including simply because the owner didn't have time for the dog, had to move, or possibly became ill and had to be hospitalized. Going to a breed-specific rescue would be your best bet. All of their dogs live in foster homes before they are adopted; so the foster home would be able to give you all the information about how the dog lives in his/her home with other dogs, people, ect. Start slow I would say first and fore-most and give both yourself and the two dogs you have now time to process and find the right new best friend for the family.


I am sorry for your loss and anyone who loses a dog or animal as it's like losing a child. We had 2 Brussel Griffons a brother and sister from the same litter born Nov 2002. My wife dislikes (hates) male dogs but fell for him as he was just the cutest, sweetest little boy. His sister was my dog she was a little larger but sweet, loving etc etc. When we took them places everyone made over him and gave her a complimentary pet. Because of that I made over her as did my daughter. In June of 2014 my wife lost her little boy and spring of this year my girl passed away. During 2014 I was laid up for a few months and since my daughter was here visiting she gave my doggie her attention. In Jan - Feb of this year I was hospitalized and my wife looked after her and gave her attention. She was getting up there in age and had some health issues but held in there and even visited me at the hospital - wagging tail and kisses galore.About three weeks after I was discharged home she finally passed.. My wife still comments on my girl as he only really got to know her when I was ill. My wife had a total hip replacement and needs to get both knees fixed so we are just waiting to get new babies. We are looking now and can't wait till we are ready. These are the best dogs we have ever had among these breeds over the years: toy poodles (3), fox terrier, boxers (3), cocker and brussels (2 the greatest)

Anonymous asked:
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!


We have had 2 - one a barker - one not - the barker went forever before he ever barked - his sister a first at barking but only did so when appropriate and then stopped - we did a lot more encouragement with him so may have been to blame for his excessive barking - I also encouraged his barking at dogs, deers etc on the tv and it took forever to stop that - he eventually got less into doing it and was rewarded when he didn't - So to make a suggestion training from young is the best option - they don't seem to be as bad as schnauzers, rat terriers and other small toy dogs


I have a brussels he barks, but they have a low quiet bark as opposed to some high pitched barks that get annoying. I actually enjoy when my little guy barks!


My son has a 3 year old male Brussels. He seldom barks and then only when he is excited about the doorbell or seeing a cat. He seems to be pretty calm most of the time but then they are all different.

A.j.Braun asked:
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!


Easiest dog to potty train ever. Used the large pet tray with potty pellets and each day moved closer to the back door right after praising for using and the putting them into the back yard for "more". After 3 days the female went to the back door and asked out. We kept the tray there for about 3 weeks but most of the time they barked to ask out. These were the easiest and smartest dogs to train EVER!!! I see why the Brussel book says they train the owner !!! ha
