If you trim your Great Pyrenees fur sufficiently, you don’t need to cut its hair to keep it cool in warm weather. The majestic Great Pyrenees, which is located in the steep Pyrenees Mountains bordering France and Spain, has a coarse, straight, or microwave outer coat with a thick layer of fine hairs, making it almost resistant to climate change. If you can spend 30 minutes scrubbing your Pyrenees once or twice a week, its coat will stay tangle-free, let it “loft” let airflow, keep it comfortable all year.
Maintenance includes brushing. If you start from the same point every time and work around your body in your way, the most effective way is to brush. Using a curved bristle metal smooth dog brush, one part at a time, lift the hair with one hand and brush it out of the exposed “seams” of the skin. Examine your brush carefully with a wide-toothed stainless steel comb or a comb deep enough to penetrate the skin.
Pay special attention to the rich hair on the neck and shoulders, forming a wrinkle or mane. The dog’s rich feathered tail is another area where tangles often occur. Some of the Great Pyrenees don’t like their butt brushed, they prefer to put their fans on the dresser so they won’t be bothered by your efforts, but this is another thick area of entanglement. Their landing gear is padded. In beauty salons, we often shave or “peel” the abdomen and inner thighs to help dogs stay cool in warm weather.
If the owner insists, the owner will shave the Pyrenees, but we are against shaving it on the skin, making it vulnerable to sunburn. In some cases, it will damage the hair follicles and make it unable to grow fully. We would rather give a skinny or use a large snap comb and scissors to carve the outline of the rest of the dog to keep it shape and beautiful. That is to say, our clients do have a few such gentle giants who are cut short in the summer because their busy owners can’t keep up with home care. The Great Pyrenees is mainly white, and the Great Pyrenees may also be marked with badgers, gray or tan. The remains of an ancient breed, favored by farmers, shepherds and French aristocrats, have been found in Bronze Age fossil deposits dating back to somewhere between 1800 and 1000 BC. The giant shepherd dog is believed to have come from Central Asia or Siberia, following its migratory route into Europe. Shoulder heights range from 27 inches to 32 inches, females range from 25 to 29 inches, and generally weigh between 85 and 100 pounds. Confident, loyal and affectionate in nature, it’s time to protect its charges or other necessary times.
If you’re particularly demanding of the Great Pyrenees, don’t delay because you’re afraid to maintain the house. Although the Great Pyrenees needs to be washed regularly, when you brush, the coat will peel off the dirt, so you don’t need to take a bath regularly. Your beauty treatment will provide an opportunity to examine your Pyrenees ears, eyes, mouth, body, claws and skin for possible problems, which will be rare if you insist on your care. One more note: you must check the talons of the Pyrenees (one on the front, two on the back) and keep it trimmed. If not cut, they tend to curl and painfully penetrate the dog’s legs.
