Race and Behaviour Specialist Can Paksoy's character analysis




Briard is a very intelligent, bold and loyal species. They are quickly attached to their parents and often protect them against danger. Briard wants to attract the attention of their owners most of the time, but they also want to spend time in the game before emotional closeness and interest. The Briard genus inherently takes care of its own business, that is why this breed tends to be quite stubborn. The leader (trainer) should be very solid and consistent. If they believe they can overcome the training leader, they start to take control.  

Briard Training

Briard is pretty smart and wants to please people. It is relatively easy to train this line because it is possible to complete given tasks without supervision or guidance. Briard should be trained with a steady attitude during his training, but he may not welcome angry attitudes and may start to become timid if faced with anger often.

Briard Care

Briard's thick fur should be regularly brushed every week to prevent matting. They shed very little as long as they proper care given. You need to clean the excess hair from the feet and ears. Because Briard does not get spoiled in an enclosed environment, the apartment life is suitable, but the best for them is a garden with proper size to play in.

Briard Character Structure

Briard is a loving, compassionate breed against his family. They are usually very skeptical about strangers and should be introduced to the people they spend time with. Briard has good relationships with children of all ages if he grows up together. But Briard can not welcome someone to annoy him. It is necessary to start socializing regularly at a young age to ensure that Briard can be friendly to foreigners and other animals. If they are not properly socialized they may tend to be aggressive. Even a Briard, who has never seen a farm before,can learn the herding skill and tries to direct people by biting their heels. They should be rewarded by appreciating their behavior at an early age.

Briard Origin

Briard, also known as Berger de Brie, is a very old breed. The history of this gender dates back to the 14th century, the subject of the story of "Livre de chasse" (hunter book). Briardars belong to some historical figures like Charlemagne, Napoleon, Thomas Jefferson and Lafayette. Briard served as a herd keeper or a shepherd dog, until First World War. As a result of the use of Briard in World War I, the breed faced with the danger of extinction. They were used in tasks such as messenger, delivering food, transporting ammunition to fronts, detecting wounded soldiers, detecting mines and tracing. Briard increased his popularity after the Paris dog show in 1863. Briand was fully recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1928. This species is still used as herd protection, but at the same time it plays a role in certain missions with the military, police, research and rescue teams. Briard can be a great worker but also a good friend for his family.
