  • Overview

  • Bouvier des Flandres was originally bred in Northern France and Belgium in the early 1900s. This is a massive, calm, and impressive dog known due to his pleasant nature. They make excellent family dogs. They get along well with other pets if have been raised with them; otherwise, they can be aggressive with other dogs. This dog has a moderate energy level. Because of their big size, they are more suited for a family that lives in the countryside. They love to be outside and to help with tasks like pulling garden tools. They also enjoy hiking, jogging, and long walks. Very early socialization is crucially important because this breed is an independent thinker. Bouvier has strong guarding instincts, but they are never expected to become aggressive. They love to be around people, but they need to be supervised with small children because of their size. This large breed’s size is between 23.5 and 27.5 inches, and it weighs 70 to 110 pounds.
