A White Swiss Shepherd needs a large PlexiDor dog door

The White Swiss Shepherd, or Berger Blanc Suisse, is an intelligent and loyal dog with cheerful temperament. They are friendly and eager to learn, and make great family dogs as well as working companions. The average White Swiss Shepherd is very good with children, attentive, and curious. These dogs normally weigh between 55 and 88 lbs and do well with a Large PlexiDor dog door.

The dogs are related to the German Shepherd, and the breed emerged from white coated German Shepherds. Switzerland was the first country to officially recognize the dogs as a separate breed, thus the name.

White Swiss Shepherds are gentle and normally get alone well with other dogs. They are often used for search and rescue, agility, and obedience, and make great assistance dog. While they are both willing and able to protect their family they’re not usually used as guard dogs. Unless someone the love is threatened they’re generally too gentle and mellow to bother with strangers.

Like all working breeds, they are happiest if they get ample exercise and something to do.

The PlexiDor Large is the right size dog door for White Swiss Shepherds.
