Aw yes, ive been kinda stalking your web site and videos for a while now :p and Avatar is defiantly one of my favorite dogs. Ive already watch all his videos, he is just an amazing worker and I hope that my Beauceron will be as great as him
Thanks. Webpage stalkers are great. Got to watch out for the wdf stalkers though :wink:

You might want to talk with Tim Welch (owner/trainer of Avatar) as well about working and living with Beaucerons. He's a nice guy and is training a Dexter son now (malinois) so can easily compare the two.

There's a litter planned for later this year in France with Enji DGV, a Avatar daughter from DGV/Julian's breeding to a FRI dog. The owner of the female is a facebook friend and just mentioned his plans to me today.

Of course then I went into "research mode" and searched out the peds:

Breeding to Chok, FRI: http://www.aboutbeaucerons.com/cgi-bin/geneal.pl?op=tree&index=24096&gens=4&db=beauceron.dbw

Enji is daughter of Avatar x Tara (Julian's female that is the dam of Artizan).

I dont plan on bring home a new pup for another year or 2. My current dog (a rottie/GSD mix) still acts like a giant puppy and he needs some more training before I bring the new pup home.

In a few months I will be starting agility classes with him and then some time next year I hope to get him into a little bit of herding. So hopefully maybe i can meet some people who have owned Beaucerons. I also found this ranch like an hour or two away from me and they own 2 or 3 Beaucerons. Im hoping to visit them also to getting a better feel for owning Beaucerons

I don't remove the dew claws on my Dobermanns. I figure if
God didn't want them to have dew claws they wouldn't be born with em :)
I've never had any problems with injuries and think they give extra gripping power ;-)
I’m interested that ppl who do not want to remove the dew claws for the reason that “God put them there “ so readily cut their ears. Didn’t God make their ears that way too?Just wondering the difference.

Beaucerons are just long haired Dobermanns aren't they? :)
I had a friend who had a Beauceron with dew claws and never had a problem. I just have a problem with removing stuff off of any dogs.
Nope :) Dobermans were bred from German Shepherds, Rottweilers, and some other terriers. However, some people have theorized regarding Beaucerons were involved. But, a Beauceron is an "original" breed, it wasn't intentionally bred from other breeds.
I have an 8 month old Beauceron who was found abandoned in the plains of Montana. He ended up in our local shelter all the way in SW MT, and he's AMAZING. His double dew claws were removed when he was a puppy, and he seems to do pretty well without the second one. He's absurdly agile and his sense of smell is very well honed. He's excellent with children, and isn't as shy about strangers as his breed would suggest. But, that's probably because we have heavily socialized him and he knows strangers have treats (we frequent ranch supply stores and Home Depot where the employees always have dog treats on them) :)


Have you seen dewclaws on a Beauceron ? Nasty . I can see why , they have an extra one . We trained a couple as PSDs several years ago and had them removed . Don't know of anyone that actually had problems with them catching on something but we didn't take the chance .
