Pyrenean Shepherd

generic_icon-01

A Devoted Companion

Energetic, Herding group, Obedient

The Pyrenean Shepherd has ancient origins but is believed to have originated in France. Their only duty was herding and they would work as a team with Great Pyrenees dogs who acted as protectors. Pyrenean Shepherds were also used during the second World War as alert dogs and search and rescue dogs. These dogs are alert and energetic and love to be part of the action. They are very obedient and easy to train. These shepherds get along well with other pets but may be wary of strangers. They need plenty of exercise to stay content, such as a long walk and vigorous play each day. Their coats need brushing about once a week.
