    Great Pyrenees

    does anyone else have one? what is yours like?

    it seems as if mine (well my mother's) misbehaves a lot. he runs if he gets out of the fence, he does things like steal food off the table when nobody is looking, and he is very skittish especially around men.

    my last dog (rottweiler/lab mix) was nothing but wonderful his whole life, so this dog is sort of a pain. I was wondering if this was normal and if anyone had any suggestions.

    My dog (not a great pyrenees) has been at "K9 University" for the last two weeks for similar behaviors. I don't think this stuff is uncommon, but we couldn't train it out of him . . . hopefully the trainer at the dog school can.

    Does he bark uncontrollably at strangers and passers-by?

    I owned a not too bright female 15 years ago. She had a passive personality but she did like to visit the neighbors who lived a quarter mile away. She was friendly to all the farm animals especially the cats which would nest on top of her when she laid down in the snow. She only lived 7 years.

    We have one and its the nicest dog in the world. I dont believe I would have one in the house. Its breed to be a livestock dog. OUrs is a great big. But it is a really really nice dog.

    Re: Great Pyrenees

    I had one growing up, he was very good about food. He didn't get into the trash or anything or even try to steal table scraps.

    He would get away every now and then and might be gone for a day or so. Major pain in the *** cleaning him up when he came home.

    Great dog, very friendly, easy going. He only lived 8 years also.

    Good luck, sounds like your's needs some training.


    I love me some Jethros BBQ!
