Overview: The first impression of the Belgian Laekenois is that of a square, well-balanced dog, elegant in appearance, with an exceedingly proud carriage of the head and neck. He is a strong, agile, well-muscled animal, alert and full of life. His whole conformation gives the impression of depth and solidity without bulkiness. The male dog is usually somewhat more impressive and grand than his female counterpart. The bitch should have a distinctly feminine look.
Breed Group: Herding
Weight (lbs): 55-65
Height (in): 24-26
Colors: All shades of red or fawn to grayish tones are acceptable with traces of black appearing principally on the muzzle and tail.
Coat: The coat must have a texture which is rough and coarse giving a disorderly, tousled look.
Temperament: The Belgian Laekenois should reflect the qualities of intelligence, courage, alertness and devotion to master. Protectiveness of the person and property of his master is added to his inherent aptitude as a guardian of flocks and fields. He should be watchful, attentive and always in motion when not under command. He should be observant and vigilant with strangers, but not apprehensive in his relationship with humans.
Care: Daily combing and brushing of the Laekenois coat is important. Clip out mats that form particularly in the ruff and on the legs. Clip hair from between their toes and on the outer ears. Bathe only when necessary. Shedding is bi-annually.
Activity: It is a working dog and needs a lot of exercise, preferably off the leash as much as possible.
Country of Origin: Belgium
Health Issue: This hardy, healthy breed has no major health concerns. Some minor concerns that have been seen are skin allergies, eye problems, excessive shyness, excessive aggressiveness and occasionally seen hip dysplasia and elbow dysplasia.
Life Expectancy: 12-14
