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.
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.
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.
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Great Pyrenees puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Our Great Pyrenees had only 1 puppy with first pregnancy? Our female pyrennes 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.

We've had our Great Pyr, Doc, since he was a puppy. Last year we had our first child when Doc was 2 1/2 yrs old. We couldn't ask for a better dog with our son. He's so patient and gentle. He's not an aggressive guardian, but will silently stand between our son and any stranger as if he's blocking the stronger from getting too close. They are very stubborn to train, but with practice, they learn well. Doc is very well behaved brides he must always be on a leash if you don't have a fenced in backyard or country for him to roam. I highly recommend this breed, but this is solely based on the one Great Pyr we have. Good luck!

Are Great Pyrenees prone to deafness? Just got a 7 week purebred Great Pyrenees puppy, and am concerned that he can not hear. Or, is it their nature to be unattentive, or independent. At times he has no problem hearing me, others, he doesn't respond to a whistle, or clicker.

If your Great Pyrenees can hear you sometimes, he is obviously not deaf. Yes the breed was developed to be independent thinkers. I recommend the book Livestock Guardian Dogs- Their care, selection and training. It explains instincts and has training tips.

Great Pyrenees immune to or resistant to hot spots I live in north ga on a goat,rabbit and bird farm. I have had a male Pyrenees and two females. The male had no hot spot problems. Had to euthanize due to his health problems. Both females have had hot spot problems this summer. One died and the other is still being treated? I would like some advice on a breed that is more resistant or immune to hot spots but is a good candidate for LGD.

Great Pyrenees are not immune to Hot Spots. Especially with the double coat. While they can't be shaved in the summer you can "shorten" the coat and leave 2 inches and then check. Our retired female got one and it was hidden so well that when we found it we almost lost her it was horrible so now we take the clippers and trim all of ours down at least and inch or two in the spring so they can't get one or if they do we can get right on it!

The gestation period for Great Pyrenees usually over 60-64 days. Don't get a young female pregnant too early, best to wait until fully grown.

After WWII the Great Pyrenees breed was low in numbers in France and Europe. American dogs helped to restore their numbers but also many were bred with related large dogs like St. Bernard or more often Anatolian. The White is the preferred show color but even with known good lines, white with markings of gray, badger, reddish brown, or tan are a recognized pure breed color. the double dew claws are also considered a good sign of the breed's purity but some breeders have been known to cull or drown 'off color' dogs or demand that they not be bred if you buy them, that to me is a shame my tan male is the best loyal guard dog I have known, a bit skid-ish with humans or in strange surroundings but don't let stray coyote or dogs invade his home lot.

Ear problems and loosing hair Our Pyrenees has had problems with her ears since we got her. Been to vet 3 times with antibiotics that only worked for a while, then came back tried many different cleaning technique and diets, but nothing really worked. Now she is losing all of her hair in December in Montana? She is so miserable with her ears always shaking and rubbing them into the ground. We have just changed her diet to "Lamb and Rice". We are desperate to try anything, if you have any suggestions, Thanks

Sounds like she is allergic to her diet or something in her environment. Ear infections are a common symptom of red meat allergy in Pyrenees. Lamb is a red meat (especially if it is canned). Pyrs can tolerate dry red meat diets easier than canned diets and raw red meat is almost guaranteed to create ear infections. Try a poultry and rice diet of a high quality food. I use the website: the Dog Food Advisor to pick my dog's diet.

Mites are a issue if dog is around chickens or other birds especially, we have had good results with diatomaceous Earth D.E. or 'Shell Flour which works on fleas and you can dust the birds and bedding area as well as the coop. In combination with ear mite medicine it works quicker.

Add fat to the diet. A hot dog with a fish oil capsule inside a few times a week, or other supplements like Turmeric.(watch for a sale on hormel real meat hotdogs, turkey beef pork or chicken, freeze them them boil them if they have nitrates boiling is safest. I use a slick plastic thin paint brush handle or even a bbq stick to make a hole then push the capsule in a hot dog, which they "wolf" down. This is one way to get a SPIRULINA tablet down that can reverse starvation / oxidation stress cateracts. Pour peanut oil over their dog food unless you see a allergy from that, mine love it just by itself. Peanut oil is not a essential fat but can help add some weight.

I would purchase another,except and this is my question, this dog barks 24/7 and always has. He even barks just to hear himself bark. Is there such a thing as a Great Pyrenee that does not bark continually? I mean all dogs bark, but this one barks more than all my other dogs I have owned combined. I can always purchase another wolfhound which only barks when necessary, but I really love my Gr. Pyrenee and he is a great watchdog. Thanks

It sounds like boredom or possibly anxiety. Pyrs were designed to bark at intruders and occaisionally bark to let any predators in the area know that a guard dog was on duty. Pyrs can be fairly quiet pets if they are bred and raised to be that way. But a working dog bloodline and/or improper young puppyhood can result in the Pyr you are describing. If you could share more about the dog's housing: apartment pet, living in town in a fenced yard or home alone all day. On a farm. Tied up on a chain all the time. A small fenced kennel or yard 24/7. I might be able to help you more.

The problem is with the male when he has gotten something food related and very tasty and when the other pup is in the vicinity. He will growl even at us (his family) when we try to take it away and he has sprung up from his resting area gnawing on whatever it is and snarls and attacks the other pup. once he grazed my husbands arm with his teeth. It doesnt matter if one of us is telling him "no" he will persist in growling. When the two fight it is scary ferocious although it lasts a short time and then they play like puppies again. Alaric the male, has been taught to sit and lay down and also wait for his food. He eats gently out of my hand and now we are a little afraid to push him down on the ground in submission if he is growling otherwise we can put him in any submissive position. . bottom line we cant have a puppy that growls and bites. what to do?

At what age should I breed my female great pyrenees??

1 Comment

Anonymous

I would recommend not starting until 2 to 2 1/2 years of age. Her body, mind and instincts should be grown up by then. Also please consider the decision carefully. Are you breeding her for money? For farm protectors? For pets or show dogs? Do you know how to handle a birthing emergency? Do you have space to house up to 12 puppies that might weigh 20 pounds each at 8 weeks old. Can you afford $10-20 A DAY to feed a growing litter before they all go home? If you don't have enough homes waiting for them what will you do with them at 6 months old, or a year old? Some good dog breeding books might help you with this decision.

A good puppy book should be able to help you. However, I don't know if your pup is from a working bloodline (bred to be anti-social) or how much the pup was handled (if at all) in his early weeks. Also at his current age please expect him o take up to 3 weeks to adjust to your household. But please buy or barrow a puppy book sooner rather than later! Waiting 3 weeks to read a book may create some lifelong issues!

Unfortunately, your Pyr will remember that chickens taste good for the rest of its life. The only way to prevent further loss: put your chickens in a pen that the Pyr can't break into, or put the Pyr in a pen that it can't break out of. Using a leash you might be able to train the dog to leave the chickens alone when you are present. But don't trust the dog when you aren't there to "babysit".

A good puppy training book will help. Solving why the problems will help even more. Digging in the yard could be boredom, too make the ground more comfortable to lay on, or to dig down to cooler earth to lay on, or something else. As long as a vet confirms there is no bladder infection or other medical reason for peeing in the house: you may have to refresh your housebreaking training or feeding and watering schedule.

If she has good mothering instincts she will only stay home while the puppies are very young. Pyrenees and their instincts were developed to patrol large areas around their farms and flocks to look for predators. If you are trying to keep one for a pet a very tall fence that can't be climbed or dug under may keep her home but bored. If you do not have a flock of animals or children for her to protect she will actively look for some.

All dogs bark the way their throats are designed for their sound. If you are asking about barking at strangers, animals, or other things it depends on the individual dog's instincts and upbringing. Some Danes do have some watchdog instinct and bark at strangers. Most Danes are people friendly since they were not designed to be guard dogs at all, but hunting dogs of large game. Incidently, this is the Great Pyrenees section.

A Great Pyrenees that has been raised with children can be very patient with children. An adult dog not used to children may have trouble adapting. Pyrenees instincts were designed for lambs that ignore the dogs, not kids that will try to play with a dog.Some family lines may have more or less patience with human children than others. My line is bred specifically to be good with kids because of my clients. Pyrenees puppies do act like all other puppies and must be taught not to chew, jump up, bite, pull on the leash, etc. just like any other puppy. Breeders often caution families with small children because Pyr puppies can have puppy behaviour when they are 80 pounds and easily knock over people! A leash, learning to sit or lay down for petting and adaquate excersise can curb the puppy behaviour a lot. Adult dogs can be so loyal and loving that many rescues take months to adapt to their new homes.

I have a 2 year old and 7 month old Pyrenees and they are both awesome with our children age 2 and 5. We have had both dogs since they were 7 months old and my children can do anything with the dogs with no problem. My son likes to lift their lips and look at their teeth and tongue. Neither dog cares and just lays there. When we are outside both dogs keep a close eye on the kiddos. If one cries the dogs are there instantly to see the problem. They are great with small children. When they get a little to excited when playing with the kids they might knock a child down but that's when the kids are running around playing with them and it's pure accident and as they get older they don't do it. My 2 year old never knocks the kids down or jumps on them but if a strange adult comes up my 2 year old will jump up on them to check them out but then go once they know they are ok to be at our house.

It may adjust with enough patience. But if several generations have been ranch dogs than it probably has some pretty strong instincts in the family line. Consider a younger puppy or an AKC pup with more relaxed instincts. Ask how many previous pups have made good city pets.

If the Great Pyrenees has never been house broke you could run into a problem. I have 2 Pyrenees and both were bought from and farm but we had them as indoor/outdoor dogs. They were both a breeze to housebreak at 8 weeks old but just like anything else with the dog breed it needs to be taught when it is still very young or it can be a little bit stubborn. Ours did not mess up our carpets or furniture and we loved having them inside but the dirt and hair they shed out of their fur can become overwhelming to keep cleaned in the house. We have recently made ours fulltime outside dogs to watch over our farm animals all the time instead of coming in at night with us. If you have them inside you will need plenty for the puppy to chew on or make sure you have wore it out before bringing it in the house or it will be destructive as a puppy but with a little effort it can be done. They are fantastic dogs i will never have another kind

I have a 4 month G Pyrenees/Golden retriever mix puppy. When I first got him, when he needed to go, it had to be "right now"! So I looked up a lot of forum and discussion, basically, they need to go almost right after they wake up from a nap. Also, close off the sections in the house that he doesn't sleep in. They don't like to soil their own sleeping area. Since then, he has no accident in the house. Now we had him for 1.5 weeks, he can hold his bladder for 4, 5 hours. He also has the tendency to sit during the walk. After talking to the vet and based on the observation I made, it was due to his loose hip joints (possible hip dysplasia) and it's causing him pain or discomfort. You could try looking up the symptoms of hip dysplasia and observe your puppy during walks. My puppy would get up after a minute or so and keep walking. But he can do at most 30 minutes each time before you see seriously dragging on his hind legs! good luck with your puppy!

I have 2 Pyrenees and potty training is a matter of keeping a very close eye on them and will pick up pretty quick usually. if you see it drinking water or eating it needs to be brought out in atleast 15 minutes. normally it will take them a little bit of exploring and they will go. When inside if you see them smalling around the floor, furniture or trying to go into the other room it probably needs to go out. at first you will have to be consistent with taking them out and watching them but after they realize what your teaching them they catch on pretty fast. Also it works good to say the same thing everytime you bring them out like "lets go potty" or "lets go out" or whatever you prefer just consistency. Both mine as puppies hated a leasch but by 4-5 months they got the hang of it.

From the material I read, they gave great pyrenees a life span of 10-12 years. Mine lived to be 15 years old. He began having hip issues and eye sight problems at age 13. He ran a lot, due to the large backyard and the farmers vehicles traveling the easeway (he loved to bark at them as they drove the gravel path). The doctor believed this is what kept him heathly. His weight stayed between 90-100lbs. I hope this helps.

Eye problems are helped with SPIRULINA powder mixed with chicken broth poured over dog food can reverse cataracts in some cases.

I am having the hardest time potty training him. We have been working on crate training as well but for some reason he still uses the restroom in the crate....what can I do? Also he seems to never gain any weight, he gets fed regularly but never really seems to want to eat much, should I be worried?

Hello, We found that by placing our great pry in a larger cage he felt more comfortable and was not as destructive (using the bathroom etc.) It seems to help larger dogs. My suggestion on the food is Great Pyreneses are slow eaters there for you may have to leave the food out all day and let him eat as he pleases. Mine would eat most of his food by the end of the day eat a most of his food.

She is trying to steal the babies for herself. The only solution in my experience is to separate her from the birthing goats. Preferably put the goats in a pen, so she can protect all of them from the outside. You will have to see at what age she stops trying to steal the kids so they can be let out of the birthing pen. I don't expect you can train your Pyr out of this, unless you move into the birthing pen to babysit 24/7 for a season.

Does the Great Pyrenees breed carry or have fleas bad?

With any dog, fleas can be a problem. The enviroment the Pyr. will be living in will need to be considered. Depending on the presence of other animals, the climate, rural vs. city living (city living is highly unrecommended for this breed unless there is a lot of space for the dog to roam), etc., the dog's likelyhood of having fleas differs from other dogs'.

Not much else is known about her. Will she imprint with goats at this age? I want her to guard my goats.
