  • Overview:

    The Berger Picard or Picardy Shepherd is a French herding dog originating in Picardy. These dogs nearly became extinct after both World War I and World War II and remain a rare breed.

    However, Berger Picards have a crisp outer coat and soft undercoat that requires infrequent grooming (MAYBE once a week, if that) to minimize the shedding.
