Introduction

The Bouvier des Flandres is a type of herding dog that was initially developed in the country of Belgium. The name Bouvier des Flandres is in French and means “cow herder of Flanders” when translated, in reference to the Flemish origins of the dog breed. Originally, the Bouvier’s primary role was limited to farming purposes, such as pulling carts and herding sheep and cattle. At present, however, they perform a wide variety of roles, including competition show dogs, guide dogs for the disabled, police canines or simply as house pets. The Bouvier des Flandres is an immensely intelligent breed with strength and agility to boot. Given its working background, the breed can handle lots of activity and learn commands with ease. Their devotion, fearlessness and versatility make Bouviers an excellent choice for a household companion.

Bouvier des Flandres Dog Name Considerations

One of the many joys that come with getting a new pup is the opportunity to pick out a name. As simple as it seems, the task of choosing your dog’s new name should be given serious thought. Remember, the name that you choose will be the one that your dog will carry forever, so be smart about it.

A Bouvier des Flandres is not your run-of-the-mill, everyday pet, which is why it deserves a special and well thought-out name. One of the simplest but ingenious ways to come up with a name for your Bouvier is to look at its history. The breed was originally from the Flanders region of Belgium, which means you may pick from a long list of Belgian names or anything in relation to the country and its culture.

Another simpler idea is to look at the variety of characteristics that your dog possesses. From a purely physical standpoint, the Bouvier is a large-sized dog with a powerful build and tousled double coat that comes in a variety of colors, such as black, fawn and brindle. For example, for black-coated Bouviers, the names “Sable” or “Ebony” would be a great fit. You may use any of your dog’s attributes, physical or not, as a source of inspiration for your new pooch’s name.
