The Berger Picard's attributes include a lively, intelligent personality and a
sensitive and assertive disposition that responds quickly to obedience
training. By and large, Picards are laid back and mellow but they are known
for having a stubborn streak and being reserved towards strangers. They
require a lot of socialization during the first two years of their lives.
Picards are energetic and hard working, alert, loyal and sweet-tempered with
children. They are happiest when they have a job to do. They also have a
protective nature, making them good guard dogs. However, they are not
excessive barkers. Some Picards are notoriously picky eaters, and it may be
difficult to decide on a diet that you and the dog agree on.
The breed also has a well-developed sense of humor, making them an
endearing companion, and they continue to be used very effectively as both
sheep and cattle herder in their native land and elsewhere.
Like many herding breeds, Picards require human companionship and lots of
it. Since they can be demonstrative to their owners and enthusiastic friends
towards other animals, formal obedience training and plenty of positive
socialization is a must. Athletic, loyal and filled with a desire to work a long
day, the breed excels in any "job" as long as enthusiasm and praise is a part
of the task.
