Pyrenean Mountain Dog

General Description

Possibly the best known of the livestock guardian breeds, the Pyrenean Mountain Dog is an immensely strong, huge, heavy-bodied dog with a thick coat. Despite their size they should be elegant and well balanced with a smooth movement driven by powerful hindquarters.

Character and Temperament

Strong willed, patient, fearless, affectionate, confident and gentle

Exercise

As adult dogs, Pyrenean Mountain Dogs need around an hour of exercise daily but shouldn't be over-exercised as puppies when their bones and joints are still developing. Training will require patience but can be achieved using reward-based techniques.

Origin

The Pyrenean Mountain Dog is a breed of livestock guardian dog from France, where it is commonly called the Patou. The breed comes from the French side of the Pyrenees Mountains that separate France and Spain.
