Bold yet discreet, Beauceron should be approachable but not overly eager to make new friends, instead of reserving the right to judge and keep strangers at arm’s length. He is a tolerant dog with children, affectionate with his family, and protecting his herd, both people and animals. Shyness or excessive aggression is not acceptable in this breed. You must socialize your dog from a young age to expose him to different situations.
