Bouviers des Flandres are rational, gentle, loyal, and protective in nature. The breed's particular blend of
characteristics makes them good family pets, as well as keen guard dogs. Unlike some animals bred for
aggressive nature and power, the Bouvier possesses sophisticated traits, such as complex control, intelligence,
and accountability.

The Bouvier des Flandres is an obedient dog with a pleasant nature. They look intimidating, but are actually
calm and gentle. They are enthusiastic, responsible, even-tempered, and fearless, and are excellent guard and
watchdogs that are easy to train. This breed learns commands relatively fast.

They require well-balanced training that remains consistent in nature. It is important to consistently make the
dog aware, without being harsh or rough, that the owner is, and will remain, the boss. This breed needs an
experienced owner to prevent dominance and over-protectiveness problems.

Bouviers should be socialized well, preferably starting at an early age, to avoid shyness, suspiciousness, and
being overly reserved with strangers (although the breed is naturally aloof with strangers). Protection of the
family when danger is present is not something that needs to be taught, nor is it something one can train out of
them. The dog will rise to the occasion if needed. A good family dog, the Bouvier likes, and is excellent with,
children. The Bouvier is very adaptable and goes about its business quietly and calmly. Obedience training
starts at an early age. Their behavior depends on the owner's ability to communicate what is expected, and on
the individual dominance level of the dog. They are usually good with other dogs if they are raised with them
from puppyhood. Dominant individuals can be dog-aggressive if the owners are not assertive and do not
communicate to the dog that fighting is unwanted. Slow to mature both in body and mind, the Bouvier does not
fully mature until the age of 2–3 years.
