Belgian Tervuren   American Belgian Tervuren Club


An average-sized (26” tall) dog with a distinctive thick coat, the Belgian Tervuren is an all-purpose herding and guard dog who serves primarily as a companion today. He is intelligent and sensitive dog who does best with daily exercise and activities to keep his keen mind and body strong (considering how few there are in the United States, it is amazing how often you see them in agility events). The Tervuren’s coat requires brushing at least twice per week.
