Answer by Elni
The Bouvier des Flandres originated in Belgium and most of its early breeders were farmers. It is steady, resolute and fearless, and it serves well as a family guardian and friend.
It is definitely a large breed, so Bouvier should always be supervised around children, and around other animals as well.
The Bouvier makes a good house dog and would enjoy access to both house and yard. It is not overly active in the house. Nevertheless, it needs plenty of exercise, so country and suburban living suits the Bouvier best.
You should brush your dog weekly to remove dead hair in the coat and prevent matting. They don't drool too much.

My cousin had a Bouve that drooled 24/7…they kept a rag in their pocket to wipe "Bear's" face during the day when it got too messy.
Dog had clean teeth, great breath, amazing coat, very energetic…just DROOLED!! LOL

I have 2 bouviers 9 month old male and 14 month old female. They don’t drool at all but their beards are constantly wet from drinking water so we keep their beards short and so its no worse then any other dog. we go to a dog park and their is a golden retriever their and he drools all the time! and I mean alot! I have found with our bouviers because of their coat they are always picking up dirt on their paws and their legs and in their fur and then they come in the house and its deposited all in the house so I’m always sweeping the floor, and in the winter the snow sticks to their coat and then they come in and melt lol and then theirs lots of wet spots in the house so we mop alot. They are definitely an in door dog they like being with their people. If I knew then what I know now would still choose a bouvier they are awesome dogs . Easy to train, listen well, medium exercise level. although all dogs are individual in there exercise needs.
