Dog Breeds

  • Belgian Tervuren

    Belgian Tervurens are strong, agile, muscular dogs. Their bodies are similar in length and height and their topline, forelegs, and hind legs giving them a square appearance. Males appear strong and masculine while females have daintier appearances.

  • Group: Herding
    Lifespan: 10–14 yr
    Height: 22–26 in
    Weight: 40–83 lb

  • Care

    Belgian Tervurens have medium-length, waterproof coats that are a snap to maintain. Brush them at least once per week to remove dead hair and reduce shedding. During semi-annual “shedding season” when the breed blows its coat, daily brushing and regular baths can help. Trim their nails to prevent cracking, splitting and painful overgrowths, and clean their ears. Regular dental care that includes at-home teeth brushing and professional cleanings is also an essential part of their grooming routines.

    Feed Belgian Tervurens a high-quality dog food that is appropriate for their life stage (puppy, adult, senior) and consider a diet formulated for active breeds. Like other breeds, Belgian Tervuren could become overweight if their food intake is not monitored. Portion out their food with a standard measuring cup and limit treats to no more than 10% of their daily calories to avoid overfeeding.

    Idiopathic epilepsy, Pannus - chronic superficial keratitis

    Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
