Berger Picard  


As with many breeds, the Berger Picard almost went extinct after WWII. They are an athletic, average sized (up to 23.5” tall) herding dog who needs regular exercise and tasks to keep them occupied. They are known as stubborn, but can respond well to positive training. They are loyal companions and watchdogs, and can become wonderful house dogs with the right training. Their wiry coats require brushing at least once a month to prevent matting.
