Great Pyrenees make wonderful family pets, as well as majestic Livestock Guardians Dogs. They are very loyal to their masters and fiercely protective, but also extremely independent. Pyrs are amazingly intelligent, and thrive with a job to do. The sheer size of them, combined with a monster sized bark is enough to scare away most predators (& pesky neighbors!) Their beautiful, double coats make them best suited for cooler climates outside or as in inside companions. Even as puppies, they are calm, and low energy (until it’s time to work!) Their calm demeanor makes them excellent for small children. Although they are large in stature (average 80-120 pounds), they are very gentle giants with those they love.
Great Pyrenees were originally bred to guard sheep in the Pyrenees Mountains, which form a natural border between France and Spain. In the United States, with natural farming and livestock practices becoming mainstream, the Pyrenees are perfectly suited for Livestock Guardians. They require little to no supervision, and most take on the task naturally. When Pyrs are Livestock Guardians, they have been known to roam several miles when they hear animals in trouble. They can climb fences, open gates and squeeze through impossible things to get to their charges!
