History

The Beauceron, or "berger de Beauce" as it was originally known, is a working dog from France. Developed in the 1500s as a hunter of wild boar, it also became useful as a sheepdog and herding guardian. The history of the Beauceron may include the Doberman pinscher. Contrary to what its original name suggests, this French shepherd is not from Beauce but from Brie, sharing this origin with its cousin the Briard. The name berger de Beauce was given to distinguish the two breeds. In 1911 the two breeds were registered as separate breeds and the Beauceron Club was founded.

In addition to herding and working as a watchdog, the Beauceron has a natural instinct to guard and protect. The breed is often used in police work, for protection, and as a rescuer. The Beauceron's reputation as a valued companion and protector has also been recorded in portraits, where they are depicted as companions of kings.

Personality

The Beauceron is loyal and protective, making it a good watchdog and protector of its people and property. They tend to be a dominant breed and require a firm hand in training. If treated with patience, this breed can make an ideal companion. They can be territorial around other pets and should be introduced to other dogs early in their training.

The Beauceron is an intelligent breed and a fast learner. They enjoy challenging activities and need a regular outlet for their energy. Daily walks are a must, or at least the freedom to run in a large yard.
