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.

Does a normal Great Pyrenees have dew claws on back feet?

Yes, it is in the breed standard for the Great Pyrenees to have dew claws on the back feet. They can either be trimmed like normal dew claws, or removed when you get your dog spayed/neutered.

Anonymous

Dewclaws are the mark of a purebred Great Pyrenees. It is part of the breed, the dog and the written standard. There is no reason to remove the double dewclaws!!!!!

No, India is much too hot for a Great Pyrenees. Please search for breeds that were created in India and so can tolerate the heat of India.

I lived in Phoenix Arizona with my great pyrenees for six years he did very well they can take the heat and the cold they are very adaptable in both hot and cold weather climates. P. S. the temperatures reach 120°F in Phoenix Arizona in case you didn't now.

Can a Great Pyrenees tolerate the heat living in southern Florida?

The Great Pyrenees' would not do well in Southern Florida, their fur is too thick and they should not be shaved.

I would not recommend a Pyr for Florida. We lived in Northern Virginia and made twice daily trips to the river as it was too hot to exercise. Now we live in Alaska and our Pyrs love it.

I have Great Pyrenees in Texas and it gets hot here. Working livestock guard dogs like Pyrenees will dig holes to get to the submoisture to stay cool when out with their livestock. That's why they are not good house pets or backyard dogs - not in the house because of the shedding, not in the yard because of the digging and barking. The coat is also for insulation - it can keep them warm in winter and cool in summer. Read about the breed before you buy.

I have Great Pyrs in southwest Florida and they do fine. Their coat works as a heater in frigid temps and as a coolant in the heat. Mine are outside guarding livestock.

My Pyr was a house dog. The most beautiful,smart, easy going sweetie ever. He never dug a whole, I brushed him for twenty minutes every day no shedding problem. Every Saturday I told him it was bath time and he would go jump in the tub. I trimmed his nails and he would pick up his front feet for me. Loved my Alexander the Great❗

Great Pyrenees' ears are up and not resting down like lop-eared bunnies. Is this right or not? Would that tell me it is a mix of some kind and not a purebred Pyrenees puppy?

A Great Pyrenees' does not have up-right ears. Most likely your pup is not a purebred. I would consult a vet, your breeder and then if all else fails, take a DNA test for your dog.

Why do some Great Pyrenees dogs bark all night long?

2 Comments

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.

This is another reason not to buy a working livestock guard dog as a backyard pet. The barking is part of their way of warning away predators. I had one surrendered to my rescue because the neighbors kept calling the police on the owner. He was sold a working dog from a ranch and he stuck it in his backyard. Read what a breed is for before you buy. Then the rescues won't be so full of discarded dogs that were improperly placed.
