Briard Dogs can make good pets in Vermont if they match your IifestyIe. The Briard is a big, shaggy, intelligent dog with strong herding instincts. Briards are very protective and alert, and they make great watchdogs. Briards are kind, gentle, and generally obedient, but they do have independent minds. Briards are best suited to firm, patient masters with experience training dogs. Briards need attention, activity, and entertainment they do not do well being left alone. Families with children should ensure that a Briard is exposed to children early in life, and that the children do not tease the dog. Briards can live in an apartment but need ample daily exercise such as jogging.
