Temperament

The Briard is a very loyal and protective breed, and is sometimes called “a heart of gold wrapped in fur”. They can be aloof with strangers – new introductions should be on the dog’s terms, including furniture or the addition of a new baby into the household. They require showing that the new intrusion is friendly and free of conflict. They must be taught that it is a good thing and not harmful. They have proven to be a very good breed to have around children of all ages. Indeed, these dogs rapidly develop an affection to their owners.

They are really emotional, capable of crying for a long time after their owners’ departure and celebrate their return in a very enthusiastic way. Even if a Briard is a city dweller, they have a degree of herding ability within them. If ever, during their lifetime, they are introduced to sheep or cattle, they will automatically start doing what they were bred to do, herding. They will even herd humans by nibbling on their ankles or guiding with their heads and guide them to his master if ordered.

Health Issues

Generally healthy, but some lines are prone to hip dysplasia. To help prevent the chance of hip dysplasia developing make sure your dog is on a healthy, well proportioned diet, and avoid excessive running and jumping while still a puppy as this can be hard on the developing joints. Briards, like other large-chested breeds, can experience bloat and a twisted stomach. The condition can come on very fast and, if left untreated, is fatal. To minimize the risk of your Boxer developing any of the hereditary health issues, you should buy a Boxer puppy from a reputable Briard breeder.

Living Environment

The Briard can adapt to being an apartment dog if they are given enough daily exercise. They prefer to have a yard of their own, however and the room to roam. They do not do well as kennel dogs since they love to be with people.
