The Bouvador truly has an outstanding pedigree behind it; both of the parent breeds are largely considered to be dogs of all trades - the Bouvier des Flanders (who provides the "Bouv" in the Bouvador's name), hails from Belgium and was bred to work as a herding and carting dog as well as a police dog. The Labrador Retriever (who provides the "dor" in the Bouvador's name) is a breed that hardly needs an introduction and has been employed to work as everything from a seeing-eye dog to a therapy animal. As a result, the Bouvador is practically genetically predisposed to be a great dog - they just need to be reared properly by a caring and loving pet parent.
Even though we tried to cover a wide range of topics in this guide, we were really only able to scratch the surface of what Bouvadors are capable of; these dogs are just as versatile as either of their parents, and they can learn to do all sorts of amazing things with enough time, practice, and dedication. Bouvadors are also incredibly intelligent dogs who love to be introduced to new challenges on a consistent basis. Really, the only reason you shouldn't adopt a Bouvador is if you don't think you can keep pace with these astonishing hybrids. That's not to say that Bouvadors are needy animals - they just have a way of pushing their companions to do their best simply by virtue of their inspirational nature.
