Want to learn more about this unique and ancient breed? Look through our compilation of Briard Photos!

Since the early middle ages, Briards have served as both a sheep herders and flock protectors. They originally hail from the cheese-producing regions of Northern France. As suggested by their name, this includes Brie, which is well known for the popular soft cheese of the same name. French farmers weren’t the only ones who professed a love for the Briard. Napoleon, who generally didn’t like dogs, was a Briard fan. Thomas Jefferson brought a pregnant Briard home to the United States from France. Her descendants worked at Monticello for years, and the breed won Jefferson’s heart. During World War 1, the Briard was the official dog breed of the French army.

Briards have a long and wavy double coat which doesn’t shed very much. This makes them a great option for dog lovers with allergies. It’s important to get them used to grooming as a puppy. Make sure to brush a Briard several times a week with a pin brush. An undercoat rake will also cut down on shedding. Check for mats regularly behind their ears, on their bellies, under their tails, and in their armpits.

Briards have distinctive “peek-a-boo” hair hanging over their eyes. While they come in a few color combinations, this breed is usually either black or tawny.

Training, Energy, and Temperament

Briards are often described as having a “zest for life.” They have high energy levels, both physical and mental. Make sure you provide them with a securely fenced-in yard. While they will show those close to them a lot of affection, they may also be protective, especially of kids. They tend to be wary around strangers as well.

Like many herding dogs, Briards can be fiercely independent. They’ll often want to make their own choices, trusting themselves as the executives. However, they have a need to please you as the owner. Briards are highly intelligent, learn quickly, and have amazing memory skills. Keep their training interesting and varied, and you should have no trouble.

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.
