Berger Picard


Overview

Originally a sheep herding dog, the Berger Picard retained it’s independent, intelligent personality. They still love to herd, and will even try to herd small objects and children! It can be sensitive and may attack smaller pets, so it is not a good choice if you already have other small animals in your home.
