  • Care

    Berger Picards have waterproof double coats that do not require much grooming. Brush them at least once per week to remove dead hair and, during spring and fall when these dogs blow their coats, brush them with an undercoat rake several times per week to reduce shedding. Keep their ears clean and their nails trimmed. Berger Picards also benefit from a regular dental care routine that includes at-home teeth brushing and professional cleanings.

    These dogs have ears that are high-set, broad at the base and taper to a slightly rounded tip and medium-sized, oval-shaped eyes that are medium to dark brown and convey an alert, observant, confident expression.

  • Disorders

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