Description

Background

The Swiss Shepherd dog is a breed of dog originating from Switzerland and is also one of the earliest breeds.

Swiss Shepherds are working dogs and they were originally used to herd Swiss livestock, as well as protect them from predators, and guard their owners’ property. They have an innate ability to identify dangerous situations such as wild animals or strangers approaching. Swiss Shepherds are medium sized with strong boned structure and muscled body, which indicates that it can carry out its guarding duties effortlessly. Swiss shepherds usually work either independently or with other guardian dogs of its pack for protection against large predators like bears and wolves.

The Swiss shepherd stands around 23-26 inches (60-65 cm) at the withers (highest point of the shoulders) and weighs around 55-90 pounds (25-40 kg). Swiss shepherds have a distinctively large, broad head with bushy whiskers and eyebrows, dark eyes and small V shaped ears. Swiss shepherd coats come in a variety of colors including red fawn, black, white or a combination of these colors, sometimes with a mask or blaze. The Swiss Shepherd has a unique double coat that consists of an outer coat which is close and dense and an undercoat that is soft and thick. Swiss Shepherds are energetic, obedient creatures who need daily exposure to situations that challenge them mentally as well as physically. They bond to their owners very closely making it difficult for other people to take over caring for them after the Swiss shepherd has become familiar with its master. Swiss shepherds can adapt to apartment living as long as they get daily walks and playtime, but prefer a large spacious area to run around in.

Swiss shepherds are very alert animals and make good watchdogs. Swiss Shepherds have a life expectancy of 10-12 years.
