History & Job

Origin: Belgium

Breed History & Job Description: The Laekenois backstory is roughly the same as that of the other Belgian herders: The small but industrious country of Belgium has always been a thriving center of meat, wool, and dairy production, and old-time Belgian farmers were, not surprisingly, preoccupied with dogs that could drive and protect livestock. The Laekenois is named for the Chateau de Laeken, one of the palaces of the outdoorsy Queen Marie-Henriette (born 1836), who was preoccupied with horses and dogs. The Laekenois was said to be the queen’s favorite breed.
