Great Pyrenees Question

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.
