The Schipperke has been described as large dogs in small bodies. They have the instincts of a guard dog – protective, devoted, and courageous. They can be impish, active and a bit of a devil. At the time the breed was developed, dogs had to be useful to justify their existence. Just as a sheepdog is the guardian of herds and farm property, the Schipperke is the guardian of the household. In common with all guarding breeds, Schipperkes possess an inordinate sense of responsibility towards the home and everything in it and have a loyalty for the ones to whom they are devoted. The Schipperke is a curious breed – a trait which creates the perfect watchdog. Nothing in the home escapes close inspection. Although the Schipperke is a small dog, and would not inflict much bodily harm, a piecing bark will make enough noise to scare away any burglars and unwelcome strangers.


When looking for a puppy to purchase it is highly recommended to contact any of the Breed Clubs we have listed for this breed since it is they who should be able to put you in touch with members who have bred litters according to their Club’s Code of Ethics.

BUYER BEWARE;  Some breeders listed here may not be members of a Schipperke Breed Club, there may be good reasons for this, but ask the question before you enter into any transaction.
