The Brussels Griffon loves to bark, which makes him an excellent watchdog. This clever, but pretty whimsical dog, must undergo obedience training at young age. This will help you to grow a well-mannered and polite dog. Comparable Breed: Affenpinscher, Pomeranian.


Cheerful, friendly, and sometimes cranky, this dog can be quite finicky. Like all representatives of small breeds, the Brussels Griffon is not always enthusiastic about following the house rules, but consistent upbringing will moderate his bad behavior. Since they can be quite intractable, and at the same time nervous, Griffons need solid but gentle hand.

Coat / Care:

Brussels Griffons have a distinctive trait, that is, they`ve got two types of coat. The first coat type is rough, hard, dense and has a wire-like structure. The second type is the exact opposite: the coat is smooth, glossy, with straight and short hair. Brussels Griffons come in red, black and black with reddish brown markings. In order to keep it beautiful and shiny, the coat must be thoroughly cleaned on a daily basis. They need professional grooming twice a year.


You need to adjust to the peculiarities of the Griffon, because he quickly loses interest in the monotonous process of learning. If you turn learning process into a game, you will most definitely keep the attention of your pet for a long time.


Although this is very lively and hyperactive breed, you will not spend a lot of time and effort on entertaining your pet. The Brussels Griffon may entertain themselves. Griffons need brief daily walks, and their small size makes them suited to any household.
