Regular grooming of the Belgian is an essential step.

If at any given time, we comb our Belgian regularly, it will help them shed dead hair, get rid of big chunks of dirt, maintain their hair, prevent knots in their fur, and thus prevent skin disease, more can promote blood circulation, enhance skin resistance, relieve fatigue.
For the Belgian sheepdog, the best option would be to feed the dog raw. Even thousands of years of domestication cannot fundamentally change its digestive system or its basic nutritional needs. It relies on meat and fat to provide it with enough energy to survive. A well-balanced raw diet helps the Belgian shepherd to keep his mouth and teeth clean, improve his digestive system and immune system, and build strong muscles. However, there is still a balance to be found in what you eat for your Belgian sheepdog. Meat alone is not enough. It is recommended to combine meat, whole grains, and dog food to make your dog grow more healthily. The Belgian sheepdog is active, likes sports very much, and consumes a lot of heat energy every day. Therefore, the amount of food to be fed should be sufficient. The dog has different body sizes, so the amount of food to be fed should be determined according to the specific size of the dog.
Belgianare generally healthy, with an average life expectancy of 10 to 12 years. They are prone to developmental dysplasia of the HIP, a type of genetic disorder that causes claudication. In addition, there are epilepsy, excessive timidity, eye problems, gastric dilatation, gastric Volvulus, drug allergy, and swallowing foreign bodies. Therefore, when selecting a Belgian puppy, the puppy and its parents must pass a veterinary examination and be certified clean.
We train the Belgian from the ground up, letting it master the discipline bit by bit. When you bring it into your home, it’s essential to train it where to eat and where to sleep and where to defecate. It also needs to be trained to get along with its family, to be friendly and not hostile. You have to be careful when you’re training the Belgian, and you have to let it follow you wherever you go. Because the Belgian is very lively, it must be trained to follow you, do not let it run around. Sometimes we have to give him some other training to make him obey your commands slowly. And when it doesn’t behave well, we have to be tough on it. Don’t spoil it, don’t criticize, praise when you should praise, scold when you should scold.
Belgian is quick on the trigger, friendly and loyal to the owner, and will never make you think he is too sensitive in front of you. The amount of exercise they do is very high, and the health of a Belgian depends on the amount of exercise they do, so we should never keep them at home when we are raising them, and we should always take them out for exercise and running. There’s as much room in the house as possible for them to move around. In addition, we should regularly observe his mental condition, once found anything unusual, it should be taken to the hospital. His toenails also need to be trimmed regularly to prevent them from affecting his Groenendael, and we shouldn’t take the Belgian to unsafe places to prevent cuts on Belgian's toes.
