persons and avalanche victims. Tervurens that are not kept sufficiently busy can
become hyperactive or destructive.
As companion animals, Tervurens are loyal and form strong bonds with their family,
leading some to be shy around strangers. They are good watch dogs, being very
observant and attentive to the slightest change in their environment. Some can be

of activities. Today the breed is still relatively rare in the United
