Dog Breed Spotlight: Great Pyrenees

The Great Pyrenees is a majestic, confident, and smart mountain dog with waterproof coat and immense calm. The breed is believed to have come to Europe from central Asia around 1,000 BC.

These dogs tend to work independently, and they might not always do what you tell them to do. They’re not amongst the most active of dogs, but they do need exercise to stay happy and healthy. They also need weekly brushing to keep the coat in good condition.

While these dogs are known for being calm and friendly, they are also very big. It is wise to enroll in puppy school and teach the dog good manners from a young age, just to make sure you’re walking the dog and not the other way around.

  1. Mom wanted to get a Pyr when she was looking for a second dog, but thankfully she found the GBGV breed by accident and ended up with me!
