The Great Pyrenees is a very large animal with a solid muscular body; it gives the distinct impression of elegance and unsurpassed beauty combined with great overall size and majesty. It has a weather resistant coat that will allow it to withstand intense cold temperatures.

This breed needs close human companionship, attention and lots of space. The Great Pyrenees will not do well with apartment dwellers. This breed is pleasant, gentle, loyal and extremely intelligent.




Long and coarse textured with a profuse undercoat of very fine hair. Regular brushing will keep the coat in good condition, but extra care is needed when the dog is shedding its dense undercoat. The outer coat does not mat, so care is relatively easy. Bathe or dry shampoo only when necessary. This dog sheds heavily once a year.
