Overview
This very devoted and protective breed makes for a great guardian of both his family and livestock. An obedient dog, the Great Pyrenees is gentle and affectionate, but also relatively serious. The Great Pyrenees is a loveable large breed that reminds many of a teddy bear.
Character
Sometimes stubborn and independent, the Great Pyrenees is very loyal but wary of unfamiliar people or animals. Basically well mannered and affectionate, this breed does do well for companion purposes but shows his true colors in a country environment.

Does your Great Pyrenees bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
Gentle, affectionate, obedient and eager to please, this breed does exceptionally well as a guardian of livestock. Commonly used for sheep and cattle. As the Great Pyrenees can be willful, training can be difficult. Good with other animals, and does surprisingly well with cats.
Care
Shedding heavily once a year, the Great Pyrenees requires much maintenance during this period. Regular brushing is always necessary with a medium to long haired breed, and should be brushed all the way to the undercoat to prevent matting. Occasional baths are acceptable.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Great Pyrenees has a beautiful solid white double coat. The outercoat must be coarse and long, and is either straight or very slightly wavy. The undercoat should be thick and soft, somewhat like cotton. The coat of this breed is weather resistant.
Training
The Great Pyrenees can prove difficult to handle, and train. However, they are very eager to work and please their owner. With the right training techniques, a dominant handler, and proven methods, this breed should be very obedient and loyal. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Great Pyrenees puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Great Pyrenees does not do well in apartment life, and should always have a medium to large sized yard. Regular runs off lead are best for this large dog, but supervised walks will also do. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Why do some Great Pyrenees dogs bark all night long?

1 Comment

The Great Pyrenees is an amazing guardian/flock protection dog that knows it's job just by instinct. If a dog is barking all night long, then there is something wrong. Either a predator is around and the dog is trying to keep it at bay. Or there has been a change that the dog can not control within the flock or family it is guarding and the dog wants to alert the owners to the problem (in the dogs mind). It could also be that the dog senses something wrong, and has not been taught to distinguish that situation/person/thing as friend or foe and is again -- trying to alert the owners.

Does spay or neutering have any negative impact on the Great Pyrenees as a guardian?

The main thing that neutering does that could potentially impact the guardianship of the Great Pyrenees is that neutering will lessen the dogs wanting to roam. However, if you have a fenced in property, then that is no problem. Intact males will want to roam and claim as much territory as possible, so they will roam and 'guard' a much larger territory if you do not have a fenced property.

I have a year old male Great Pyrenees I bought as a puppy. He's very friendly but hasn't been around goats since he was young. I brought him home and he immediately started chasing goats, he wouldn't stop so we penned him up. We need him to guard goats, what can we do?

This is going to be extremely difficult for you. The Great Pyrenees was bred to be an independent dog that was loyal and protective of its family. The whole reason the Great Pyrenees pups were put into the goat or sheep pen and lived with the goats/sheep were so that the dog grew up thinking that the herd was their pack/family to protect. Since your dog is an adult and has not lived with goats/sheep, you are going to have to do a lot of training with him. He can not be allowed off leash near the goats, as if he chases them and finds out that it is fun -- then it is very unlikely without the help of a behaviorist to get him to protect the goats. Have him on a leash and start working on him being calm around the goats, not reacting to their movements, play, eating, etc.

As he feels more comfortable around them, get a long-line and let him spend more time with them, but always on a leash with you supervising. It is going to take a lot of hard work and dedication for him to get to the point of being a dedicated, loyal, protective livestock guardian. You may want to contact a trainer in your area that has worked with livestock guarding protection training before, as he/she will be able to work with you and your dog face to face.

How do you know if they are pure-bred Pyrenees?

The dog will be registered with the American Kennel Club, Canadian Kennel Club or United Kingdom Kennel Club. When a dog is registered it means that the dog's pedigreed lines are pure-bred.

Our Great Pyrenees had only 1 puppy with first pregnancy? Our female Pyrenees had only one pup 16 hours ago, but she never really looked pregnant and both her and pup seem perfectly fine and happy now! This seems unusual to me, having had many dogs in the past, none of which ever had only one pup. Is this normal?

A dog can easily only have one pup at a time. It all depends on when she dropped her eggs and when the male mated with her. To be safe, you should take mamma and pup to the vet as soon as possible. The vet should X-ray mamma to make sure there are no other pups and that she is good and healthy and able to raise the pup correctly. Because there are no litter-mates, the pup will be under socialized when it is old enough to go to a new home, so please make sure the new owners know how to work with an under socialized dog.
