Dutch Shepherd Photos

Here are some Dutch Shepherd photos so you can truly understand what this breed looks like.

The Dutch Shepherd is a large dog of Dutch origin, as you can probably tell by the name. It can get up to 70lb and is brindle in color. The coat can be short or long, with the AKC recognizing both varieties. Obviously, the coat length will determine the grooming needs. They’ll shed and have to be brushed either way, but a long coat requires more maintenance so they don’t end up with painful mats.

They also come in a rough-haired variety, although this is somewhat less common.

These dogs are herding dogs. That means they are active, intelligent, and loyal. Although they’re trainable, it’s something to consider if you have kids or small animals. They don’t usually have a prey drive but may nip at things smaller than them. This is hard to train out, as it’s simply their instinct. You can work on a reliable “leave it” and “place” cue which can help, but this can take many months to become reliable. Patience is key.

An Energetic Dog

They also have an independent streak. This is great for leaving them home alone, but it can sometimes be hard to get them to listen.

If you have a yard, buying a herding ball is also helpful, as this gives them an outlet for that instinct.

The Dutch Shepherd is sadly a very rare breed these days, so you may have trouble finding one.

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.
