Great Pyrenees are very large and graceful dogs. They're well known for guarding livestock back in the Pyrenees Mountains of France. Today, these dogs are popular in the United States for their companionship, calmness, sweetness, and overall benefit to the family unit. But beyond those traits just mentioned, this breed is also quite protective, which is a plus for many.

Continue reading to learn more about Great Pyrenees, majestic and wonderful family dogs that originated in the mountains of southwestern France. Also otherwise known as Pyrs, Pyr or Pyrenean Mountain Dog.

Popularity: Somewhat popular.

Trainability: The Great Pyrenees isn't necessarily a stubborn dog, yet it doesn't aim to please either. As you go about your obedience training with this dog, you'll likely be surprised at how little attention it pays you. This is a dog that was bred to think for itself, not take commands. It isn't a trick dog or one that engages in activities. It's one that's independent and intelligent. It'll decide what it does and when it does it. So basically, you'll be met with some resistance to your training efforts and this is a battle you may not win. If you're looking for a well-adjusted and well-behaved friend and companion though, early socialization and obedience training is a must.

Size/Weight: Large sized dogs, weighing in at an average of 80-120 pounds.

Origin Location/Date: The Great Pyrenees is a breed that's descended from the most ancient of breeds. It's a guardian dog that has ancestors that date back to just about 10,000 years B.C. It originated in Asia and was used to protect sheep in the Pyrenees Mountains in the south of France. Through the years, this dog became popular on again and off again with various groups of people that included noblemen and royalty in Europe. Finally it was introduced and became popular in the United States in the 1900s. It was recognized as a breed with the American Kennel Club in the 1930s.

Energy Level: This dog was originally bred to be alone and to exercise freely by itself, so if you let it outside in an enclosed yard, it will take care of itself. It's a moderately energetic dog that enjoys walks and playing at the park, but just be sure to keep it on a leash or you'll be chasing it around trying to catch it. He has a tendency to wander.

Temperament: The Great Pyrenees is attentive, fearless, confident and gentle. It's a great family dog that's especially good with kids. This is one patient dog that you'll enjoy having around. This breed is also territorial and protective. Remember, this dog was bred for thousands of years to act a certain way and just because it's now a household pet, don't think those innate tendencies will just disappear. The Great Pyrenees is protective of his family and doesn't trust strangers very much. He's also suspicious of those he doesn't know. It's critical to socialize this dog early on in puppyhood because by its nature, this dog can be suspicious and fearful of what he doesn't know or understand. The goal is to get the dog used to as many thing as possible when its young and when it can absorb all the new information readily.

Necessary Space: This is a large dog that needs room to live. It's not a great dog for small apartments. Life in a larger house with a large enclosed back yard or a farm would be best. This breed likes to exercise outdoor and can do so alone.

Talents: The Great Pyrenees is a wonderful protector, as that's what it was initially bred to do. It will protect its home and the family it loves. It's also a wonderful family dog that's gentle and kind and great with kids.

Life Expectancy: 10-12 years.

Group: Working Group.

A few terms and phrases to describe the typical Great Pyrenees puppy and dog: attentive, fearless, confident, gentle, great family dog, great dog with children, patient, territorial, protective, doesn't trust easily, suspicious, fearful, good guard dog and great watch dog.
