Bouvier des Flanders

Calm yet bold, the Bouvier des Flandres is an intelligent, energetic dog.

About the Bouvier des Flanders

The Bouvier des Flandres was originally used to drive herds, as a draft animal and to churn butter. The modernisation of farm equipment changed this and nowadays the Bouvier des Flandres is used to guard farms and as a defence dog.

These strong-willed dogs do best with experienced owners who are able to devote time to their training and grooming needs.
