Bringing a Belgian Sheepdog into your life is a delightful experience. You are in for some new and fun experiences. Never underestimate – and never fail to appreciate! – a Belgian’s intelligence and intuitiveness.
This manual contains information compiled by members of the Education Committee of the Belgian Sheepdog Club of America. While this manual is not a comprehensive technical guide, we feel that the combined years of experience and insight from these members will help you to better understand and enjoy your new Belgian. You may have questions about topics not covered by this manual and, certainly, there will always be new lessons to be learned, so the education committee urges you to develop and maintain open communication, a good working relationship with your breeder, a quality veterinarian, and with other Belgian owners. These contacts will afford you experience and resources to draw on throughout your dog’s life.
We also encourage you to join your local, as well as national, breed club to continue the process of education begun by this manual.
