AmericaN Belgian Tervuren Club

The official AKC-recognized national parent club.

There are few breeds more physically striking than the Belgian Tervuren. Dark, intelligent eyes gaze from a black-muzzled face. The dog’s body hair is moderately long, though more abundant in mature males, and is of a base color ranging from warm fawn to fiery mahogany, overlaid with a veil of black. Owners love the breed for its beauty and versatility.

"A well-balanced Tervuren has a CH (championship) on one end and a UDT (Utility Dog Tracker) on the other."

Is a Terv for You?

Those of us who live with a “Terv” are completely charmed by their intelligence, trainability, and, perhaps most of all, their sense of humor. However, the Belgian Tervuren is certainly not a dog for everyone
