I currently own a Great Pyrenee and an Irish Wolfhound. The Pyrenee is older and in declining health. 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.
