The Pyrenean Mountain Dog is confident, gentle (especially with children), and affectionate. While territorial and protective of its flock or family when necessary, its general demeanour is of composure and patience and loyalty. It is a strong willed, independent and reserved breed. It is also attentive, quite fearless and loyal to its duties. His size makes him an imposing guardian. A dog of this breed will patrol its perimeter and may wander away if left off its leash in an unenclosed space. The breed protects its flock by barking, and being nocturnal, tends to bark at night unless trained against such behaviour.

Pyrenean Mountain Dogs can be slow to learn new commands, slow to obey, and somewhat stubborn to train. He is wary of strangers if the person is not allowed in the house, but will settle down if the owner of the dog seems comfortable with the stranger.

When looking for a puppy to purchase it is highly recommended to contact any of the Breed Clubs we have listed for this breed since it is they who should be able to put you in touch with members who have bred litters according to their Club’s Code of Ethics.

BUYER BEWARE; Some breeders listed here may not be members of a Pyrenean Mountain Dog Breed Club, there may be good reasons for this, but ask the question before you enter into any transaction.
