Like many other sheepdog breeds, they are very well-balanced and lively, but their devotion to their human companion is a very distinct characteristic of the breed.
About the Bergamasco Shepherd
Bergamasco Shepherds are powerful, but very well-proportioned, medium-sized dogs of a rather unpretentious appearance. They are exceptional sheep herders and guarders.
Shepherds are bred to herd and guard sheep, so it is no surprise they have an exemplary disposition, characterized by vigilance, concentration and psychological balance. Their faculty for learning and determination, together with their moderation and patience, make them outstanding watchdogs and companions. They are suited to many different jobs, and form a strong bond with people.
