The Belgian Laekenois is a purebred dog breed part of the herding group. Also known as the Chien de Berger Belge, this doggo comes from Belgium in the 1800s. Initially bred for stock herding, this dog breed is a great family companion dog today. For instance, they’re loyal, affectionate, and intelligent.

Where to get Belgian Laekenois Puppies

One of the best ways to get this dog breed is to go through your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. These places might have Belgian Laekenois puppies, adults, seniors, or mixed breeds available for adoption. But, again, it’s a good idea to adopt and not shop.

For instance, most of these dogs were found as strays or abandoned or surrendered from their previous owners. So, you can save a dog’s life while giving them a forever, loving home. Jules…

However, if you genuinely want a puppy and want to know where the dog came from, you can go through a reputable breeder. You’ll be able to find ethical breeders registered on the AKC Marketplace. You can tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with their vaccinations
  • Want to meet with you in person so you can get to know one another, and so you can meet the parents and the litter
  • Have the parents and puppies live in their home as part of the family, kennel-free
  • Be knowledgeable, open, and honest with you, answering all of your questions

In addition, a good breeder will health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding to ensure it’s safe and healthy for them. Then, they’ll get the puppies tested. Also, they’ll have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption. 

So, if you find a breeder that doesn’t do the above, then you’ll want to avoid working with them. They could be a backyard breeder or a puppy mill. They don’t breed the dogs under safe or healthy conditions and are more interested in making a profit than finding the puppies good homes.

The Cost

The average cost of Belgian Laekenois puppies is between $500 and $1,000. However, the price may vary depending on the number of puppies in the litter, the breeder’s location, or the time of year. 

Appearance

Belgian Laekenois puppies will grow to be medium-sized dogs, with males slightly taller than females. For example, males can grow to be about 24 to 26 inches tall, and females can grow about 22 to 24 inches tall. Regardless of gender, this doggo should weigh between 55 and 65 pounds.

In addition, they have a wiry, rough, medium coat that can come in a few coat colors and markings. For example:

  • Black & Tan
  • Cream
  • Fawn
  • Mahogany
  • Red
  • Red Sable
  • Fawn Sable
  • Cream Sable
  • Black Mask

Temperament

This dog breed is loyal and affectionate with its family members. Also, they’re good around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people. However, as with all dogs, this pup needs early socialization and training. Luckily, they’re easy to train.

Also, they have high energy levels. They’ll love going on long walks, jogs, or hikes with you. In addition, they can live in an apartment but will much prefer having a bigger house with a fenced-in yard where they can run around to their heart’s content. 

Belgian Laekenois Puppies – Veterinary Needs

For the first year, you’ll want to bring your Belgian Laekenois puppy to the vet a few times to keep track of their growth and development. Then, for every year after that, be sure to bring them to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup.

This doggo is relatively healthy, but they’re known to get hip dysplasia and hypothyroidism. They have an average lifespan of about ten to 14 years with proper care. 

Diet

With your vet’s approval, you can provide any dog food for this pup as long as it’s appropriate for their breed size, age, and weight. For example, they can have high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food.

Grooming

When it comes to grooming, you’ll want to bathe them yourself at home as needed. Also, you can bring them to a professional grooming salon once every other month for a good cleaning and clipping.

In addition, this doggo sheds a moderate amount. So, to keep the shedding under control and keep their coat looking nice, be sure to brush their coat at least once a week.

Finally, remember to keep up with trimming their nails, brushing their teeth, and cleaning their ears regularly.
