White Swiss Shepherd

The perfect dog for:
Family Guard
Sports Disciplines

The PSB derives from a strain of dogs that populated northern Germany at the beginning of the 20th century.
He effectively represents the cousin of the German Shepherd, even if a separate selection was started immediately. At the time it risked extinction because the German bourgeoisie expected a good guard dog to be dark to instill fear.
In the sixties, some specimens were imported into the USA and Canada, where they were immediately accepted willingly and recognized as a breed in their own right, so much so that a club was established.
In 1987 other specimens were imported into Switzerland and recognized as "Canadian White Shepherds".
Only in 1991 was the PSB registered as a new breed in the Swiss herd book and officially recognized by the FCI on 12.18.2002 with the official standard n. 347, and hence the name “WHITE SWISS SHEPHERD”.

Completely white coat, composed of double hair (abundant undercoat, covered by a hard protective coat), has two variations in length defined as "medium hair" and "long hair".
Ears perfectly erect, triangular with rounded tip, oriented forward.
Elongated body shape (the proportion between length and height is 12:10), medium/large in size, medium bone structure, elegant and harmonious profile whilst having a powerful and muscular appearance.

Requires a clear hierarchy and is comfortable in a subordinate position.
Very receptive in training during which he must be motivated positively and not in a submissive manner.
Great defender of family and children. A peculiarity that derives from the fact that he was originally the defender of the flock and his handler.
He only barks to signal danger. On the other hand, it has a great variety of facial expressions and sounds such as yelps, whimpers and howls that it usually uses to communicate.
