CHARACTERISTICS of the Beaucerons
Thanks to the work of migrating shepherds, this dog has acquired all the characteristics that can be expected of a great shepherd.
Easy to take care of; resistant to tough weather conditions. It's a very active dog that needs a lot o exercise and constant activity.
Needs understanding yet firm training; and it must be done in a constant manner, if its fighting instinct wants to be dominated, along with its insubordination which is typical of its character.
It's a dog with a lot of initiative, that isn't impressed easily by a herd, or will it get distracted with what is happening around, and is especially receptive to faithful training.
Despite what it seems, it is more than just an excellent guard & of arrogant style.
Has a decided look and powerful dynamism. But it can never be said of it, that it is aggressive and that the only thing it wants is to spend all day fighting.
It's impulsive, rough and heeds its master's signals only when they are clear.
Very concrete reactions: responds, takes action, and in most cases it anticipates. They always have the typical sheepdog behavior that responds the order or signal halfway while it's being said.
This speed in its reaction and collaboration with its master has been very valued for centuries. However, this behavior is interpreted differently depending on the breed.
It's strong and some what ordinary character is of slow development since it doesn't fully reach maturity until its 2 years old.
For decades, Beaux sheepdogs have been developing a combining character of prudence and audacity. Its audacity comes from its tasks, which it performs with the least of hesitations or indecision. On the other hand, this dog's prudence makes it be a very manageable, alert and observant dog. Truly, the Beaux sheepdog is able to gather all these skills.
