You’d think a dog resembling a cross between two of the most common GUARD DOGS in the world would automatically make the list. Well it did, the BEAUCERON rarely seen outside of its country of origin FRANCE is the breed.

The BEAUCERON is an old breed developed in the plain region of La Beauce, FRANCE. A multi-purpose dog primarily bred as a livestock guardian has evolved into a sporting, police, protection and GUARD DOG. The breed possesses a strong but subdued personality which is possibly why it hasn’t received the same notoriety as the MALINOIS, DUTCH or GERMAN SHEPHERD all of which are known to be high PREY oriented breeds.

A large SHEPHERD type dog weighing upwards of 130lbs, yet athletically gifted. The breed is utilized by the military in its native country so for GUARD work in a home setting isn’t asking much at all. With strong DEFENSE and PREY drives, both keys to a great GUARD DOG the BEAUCERON is a formidable foe.

Maturation is slow and socialization is a must so training is important while the dog is young as they can be destructive. Do your due diligence in finding the right temperament for your home as the BEAUCERON can exhibit a “Sharp Shy” attitude. They’re loyal when it comes to family but can be a little testy around small children. As with all the dogs on this list, training is important to maximize its potential for any type of protection work. The breed exhibits an understanding of retaining information when being taught to do a specific duty.

Some defaults: Hip dysplasia and Gastric torsion are common within the breed. Average life span of up to 12 years, they’re as hardy as they come. A cousin of the breed, the BRIARD would be an alternative breed to consider sharing many similarities as the BEAUCERON appealing to those seeking big shaggy type dog. Lastly, the breed is known for is rear extra dew claws.
