Great Pyrenees Behavior Issues

The Great Pyrenees is the best dog you’ve ever seen. However, they do have some quirks, just like all dogs and even humans. In this article, I’ll outline some common behaviors that may make you feel frustrated or upset on the Pyrenees.

Refusal response behavior of the Great Pyrenees

The most common behavioral problem in the Pyrenees is the refusal to respond to you. It’s so frustrating because of the inconsistency of this behavior. Usually, if you call your dog, she’ll look at you and then trot back to the house with no problems or pauses. You, the Great Pyrenees, understand this command clearly and are able to obey it. Another example is when you call a dog into the house, your dog turns around and looks at you. She would obviously consider the command and ignore it immediately. Every owner of a Great Pyrenees, whether trained or not, has had many such experiences. They don’t tell us how much they want to obey. The owners of the Pyrenees may do well, but our masters may be right.

Barking behavior of the Great Pyrenees

Another common behavioral problem is barking. There was no agreement on the fee. Some of the Great Pyrenees owners have quiet dogs who don’t disturb anyone. For the rest of us, we now have a clearer understanding of the popular idiom “bark is better than bite”, and the Great Pyrenees does not attack or harm anyone. They are gentle giants. But their barking is a deafening practice that can test your relationship with your neighbors.
The last behavior you should be prepared for is to give up walking. The Great Pyrenees needs some exercise, such as walking about half an hour a day. These dogs are obviously born for snow mountains, and their behavior reflects this adaptability. In winter, they will walk on the road without complaint. When the weather turns warm, you may see that in the middle of your walk, your Great Pyrenees sits down, motionless. It reminds me of the first question I mentioned. Your Great Pyrenees knows what you want her to do, but she has other plans.
These behaviors are sometimes irritating, but also very pleasing. None of them are serious and you should pause your purchase of the Great Pyrenees for consideration. In any case, proper training will help to mitigate such behavior, if not eradicated together.
