Brains, Beauty and Elegance

The Belgian Tervuren, like the other varieties, gets
its name from the Belgian village where the variety was
favored, namely Tervuren.  Its type is a result of a tough
environment and need of an intelligent, loyal and agile dog
to not only guard the herds, but be a devoted and watchful
companion family dog also.  When the necessity for farm
dogs diminished, the Belgian Tervuren dog had already
established itself as a valuable family pet.

The talents of Belgian Tervurens are many, from
herding, shutzhund, sledding, obedience, therapy, and of
course conformation shows, where their confidence and
beauty is much appreciated.  The Tervuren needs lots of
exercise and grooming.  It is good with children and
makes an excellent protective watchdog.

Dog:  24 - 26 in. (61 - 66 cm) at withers, and square.  
Bitch:  22 - 24 in. (56 - 61 cm), and somewhat longer.
Trainability:  Very high.                                                    
Watchdog:  Excellent.                                                        
Protection:  Excellent.                                                       
Life Expectancy:  10 - 12 years.                                      

It should be noted that in Canada, the breed name "Belgian Sheepdog" includes four varieties that are similar
in size and body outline, differing only in length and type of coat.  There are two long-haired varieties: the
solid black, Groenendael and the fawn-or-grey-with-black-overlay, Tervuren.  The short-coated variety in
fawn with black overlay is the Malinois, and the rough-haired variety in fawn, red brown or grey is called the
Laeken or Laekenois.  In the U.S. they are separate breeds, but the Laeken is not yet recognized by the AKC.
