  • Overview

  • Berger Picard (AKA Picardly Shepherd) is known to be the oldest French sheepdog. This medium-sized dog has a very intelligent personality and makes eye contact during communication. With this breed, you can expect a very easy training time, but sometimes they tend to be stubborn. They are very good with young kids and love to play goofy things around. They are very sensitive to the tones of voices, so even if you get impatient easily, you need to try to give commands kindly and cheerfully, and completely avoid yelling. With early socialization, they get along well with other animals. They also have the ability to make eye contact for a long time, which means they show interest during communication; however, it might be confusing for other people or dogs that can interpret it as a sign of aggression. This breed’s height is about 25 inches, and its weight is about 50 to 70 pounds.
