History

  • He originated in Belgium

Personality and Behavior

  • He's highly intelligent
  • His alertness and quickness to bark makes him an excellent watchdog
  • He barks quite a lot!

Training

  • He's very easy to train. He learns commands very quickly.

Shedding

  • He sheds profusely! You will find a lot of hair in your home - stuck to your couch, carpets and clothes - and to just about everything else. You will be vacuuming regularly.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His medium-length coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds profusely you may find yourself brushing it a couple of times a week, or even daily, to reduce the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
