Strong and confident, the Beauceron always appears to be in a serious mode of thinking. This is because he probably is. A vigilant breed, the Beauceron makes an excellent watchdog and companion for an active family or a farming family. This breed is independent, able to solve problems and highly intelligent – making them an ideal rancher’s assistant. Though serious and tough-looking on the outside, Beaucerons are gentle giants with their families and adore playing with children.
The Beauceron is not an apartment dog, nor is the breed well-suited for a family who just wants an easy-going companion. They do make excellent family companions, and even act as “nannies” for children playing outdoors, keeping a watchful eye, they are not a standard family dog. Beaucerons were originally bred to assist farmers with herding and guarding flocks, and to this day they are their happiest when active. Strolling around a neighborhood won’t satisfy this breed’s daily activity requirement. They are, however; perfect for a true “outdoorsperson” who likes to walk, hike, bike and swim. Country and farm settings with lots of room to run and flocks of animals to tend to are the best environment for this breed.
Beaucerons are a challenge to train and are not for the timid trainer or first-time dog owner. Highly intelligent, with a yang for independent thinking, this breed will take a yard if given an inch. A consistent, confident air is needed when training a Beauceron, in order to establish who is in charge. Beaucerons assume they are in charge, until proven wrong.
Once a chain of command is established Beaucerons will excel in basic obedience, and should be “graduated” into advanced training in either tricks, tracking or agility. Just as this breed needs lots of physical activity, they also need mental stimulation in order to stave off boredom, which can lead to destructive behaviors.
HILLI DU REGARD MORDANT
Hi, My name is Aliisa Piskonen, and I fell in love with the Beauceron’s faithful devotion to its owner, as well its peaceful nature.
As I am a private individual, with only one Beauceron who is very much a treasured family member, my intention is to produce only a few litters of puppies of good character and gentle nature. The idea is to allow a limited number of lucky people to share the same “feu du bonheur” or enjoyment and happiness that we have received from Hilli.
I received FCI kennel name in 2011 and I have passed Les cours d’initiation á l’élevage des chiens LOSH in 2012 by Belgium Kennel club Sociéte Royale Saint-Hubert. I agree to code of ethics and carry out breeding responsibly and a sustainable way.
