The Pyrenean Shepherd is an energetic and intelligent breed that is known for its strong work ethic and intense focus. They are loyal and affectionate with their family, but can be reserved with strangers. They are also independent and can be stubborn at times, so early socialization and training is important.

Shedding

The Pyrenean Shepherd has a thick double coat that sheds seasonally. Regular grooming is necessary to keep their coat healthy and to prevent mats and tangles.
