Briard Breed Magazine - Showsight

LIVING WITH THE BRIARD By Terry Miller with approval by BCA Breed Education Committee

T he Briard temperament is a surprise to many at first contact with the breed. Th ey are intensely a ff ectionate to their loved ones, devoted to a fault and exclusive in their loyalty. Most Briards have strong opinions and are fairly assertive about their needs and expectations, requiring a clear and constant leader with unwaivering boundaries. As expected when categorized as a herding/guarding breed, the Briard is selective, discriminate, aware, reserved with strangers, job-oriented and high drive. Th e breed is high maintenance by their basic grooming needs as any coated dog, but even higher maintenance
