The Beauceron is an old French dog breed used on many farms in France to herd sheep and cattle. They are the preferred choice of herding dog in large parts of France, and oldest manuscript dating the breed is from 1578. The Beauceron is a large dog, weighing up to 100 lbs, and they require a Large PlexiDor dog door.

In 1809, Pierre Megnin different two types of French herding dogs; one with a long coat that became known as the Berger de Brie (Briard) and one with a short coat, known as the Berger de Beauce (Beauceron).

Like most herding breeds the Beauceron has a lot of energy and needs something to do. They are loving, loyal, and protective of their families, eager to learn and easy to train, but can be reserved with strangers.

They are known for being highly intelligent, brave, and obedient. They excel at obedience training and are often used for police work.

The PlexiDor Large is the right size dog door for a Beauceron.
