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.
