Bouvier Des Flandres Photos

The Bouvier des Flandres, despite being ancient, may be a dog breed you’ve never heard of. We’ve compiled a gallery of Bouvier des Flandres photos to help you get to know them better!

Bouvier des Flandres roughly translates to “cowherd of Flanders.” Long ago, Flanders was its own principality. Today, the territory is split between modern-day Belgium, France, and the Netherlands. In the medieval period, dairy farmers in Flanders conceived a range of Bouvier dogs to perform heavy farm labor tasks. With their strong muscles, heavy bones, and weather-proof fur, they were more than up to the job. Today, the Bouvier des Flandres is the only Bouvier breed with significant numbers. This is due to the dedication of the Belgian army, and breed-specific clubs, after the widespread destruction of the two World Wars.

Bouvier des Flandres are known for being big and burly. They can easily measure 27.5 inches (70 centimeters) tall at the shoulder. Their waterproof coats are fluffy, wavy, and come in a variety of colors and markings. These include black, salt and pepper, brindle, gray, gray brindle, and fawn. They shed an average amount, so they’re not the best choice for those allergic to dogs. They’ll look their best with a brush-out once or twice a week. Use a good-quality slicker brush and pin comb.

Ultimately, the Bouvier des Flandres will want to please their owners in training. It’s important to keep in mind that they will always need a task to perform. A Bouvier des Flandres without something to do can be a very destructive force. Luckily, these dogs excel at all sorts of tasks. These can include regular jogging or running alongside you while you bike, or more organized dog sport training. If you’re an active family, the Bouvier des Flandres might be the dog for you!

Bouvier des Flandres are generally okay with children. Obviously, this depends on each dog’s level of socialization. You should always supervise any interaction between children and your dog. If your kids are also energetic, it’s likely a Bouvier will get along just fine. Bouviers do have an independent streak, but are affectionate with those they love. They’re all right interacting with other dogs, but tend to be more vigilant and wary around strangers.

To truly understand this breed you can look at some of these photos of the dog from a puppy right through to a senior dog. Click on any of the links and you will discover some of the very best Instagram accounts to follow. As you will see from the photos this is a breed you will quickly fall in love with.
