The Grand Bleu de Gascogne is friendly and sociable, gentle, and independent. Its bark is loud, but fortunately it is infrequent.
This dog gets along well with children, other dogs, and any household pets, provided early socialization has taken place.
Regular grooming with a brush is required.
If not pushed too hard, and if its independence is taken into account, this dog takes to training well.
This breed needs to go on long walks, but bear in mind that will run off and not heed your calls if it catches a hint of wild game.
