I looooove great pyrenees. I have one named duddley. He is the clumsiest dog in the world, but the sweetest. One thing about great pyrenees is that they sit on you :), they bark all the time and they never listen to you.

    Obviously you are the wrong owner for a large dog like that. How do you go out and get a dog and not teach and train him?
  • Charlie Roche - 2011-04-18
    I love them also. I They eventually grow out of the clumsy stage but mine would fall down and over frequently. They love to be close but they are sure clumsy. Maybe because they grow so fast. Mine never barked a lot. Would there be a reson yours is barking that you can think of? Something in the yard or needs to go out - anything? Mine listened but I also trained them using little pieces of hot dog th basics COME SIT STAY HEEL once they had me trained, we didn't have any problems. Good luck. They are so soft.

    My dog is a 9-month-old GP/Walker coonhound mix. He exhibits mostly GP characteristics. He is bright, calm, and has been easy to train. I must say, he is the clumsiest canine I have ever seen, especially for the first several months, as he would frequently fall down. He is very, very soft and eminently huggable. I have learned that if he barks, I had better go check it out.

    I have found the Great Pyrenees to be gentle, intelligent, obedient, loyal, and all clumsiness gone by four months old. He had six basic commands by nine weeks old. I have had mine since 8 weeks old; he is now three years old, a mere 150 pounds, and owns the security of the sheep flock and the ranch. Barking is nocturnal, when predators are near. No losses here or at any neighbors since he has been here. He is always working unless ordered otherwise. My coming and going is not his problem. Watching him work, day or night - he is Awesome. I believe God shares him with me. Best training is for a Pyr is found in Livestock

    I have a GP hound mix and love him to death. He is a gentle giant and has most of the GP in him cuz he loves to sleep and is a couch dog for sure. I go to work eveyday and he guards the house while I'm gone for 9hrs... then when I come home I take him for a walk and he's happy. At midnight after sleeping for a while he will get up and gaurd the house till morning than he goes to sleep when I wake up. The hound in him is crazy for food so he eats very fast so I'm always in the room to watch him so he won't eat so fast he gets sick... but really he is the best dog I have ever had in my life and I've owned a lot of dogs. I also own a border collie/shepherd mix and he's a male as well and they get along very well for 2 males. They look at each other like brothers and when one is not in sight the other dog is looking for him. I love them both very much and whoever said 2 males can't get along is false cuz they do great together. I was very strong minded with both when I got another male. I worked very hard to make them both understand im the pack leader and fighting is not allowed and today the hard work paid off cuz they love eachother.

I bought a rottweiler puppy recently and it's fully black. My friends told me it's not pure because rottweiler should have two colors. Can someone help me with it? Also can you list some features to identify a pure puppy.

    Yes generally as far as I know you can't get a fully black rottweiler. Did your rottweiler come with papers? That is the only true way to know for sure if your puppy is a mix or not.

I love my newfie. They are also very sensitive to people. They want to make you happy. They above all enjoy your company most of all. If you are super busy and don't have time to spend with you Newfie this is not the right breed for you they are very dependent on their human companions.

I have an English Mastiff named Rollo. He is in perfect health and temperament. When I purchased him the owners were to provide me with his family history but failed to do so and is no longer around. What would the steps be to get him to be the first family line. Is there special things to do with the English Mastiff Association? Thanks.

    You're right! Thanks for pointing it out. Where in the world did we get those names? We can't find any alternate names for the Bullmastiff, if you know of any, please let us know.

I have grown up with English Mastiffs my entire life and they are by far my favorite! I have a 19 month old that is lean and in good health minus the hip dysplasia that seems to be getting worse over the past two weeks. I cannot afford to have the surgery done since it seems to have started in front and back, does anyone recommend anything I can do as he is the best dog and way too cute!

    High quality foods, keep it weight down, and there are many supplements that can be added to their food.
  • JASON - 2012-05-08
    I reccommend you use glucosamine chondroitin. These can be bought at any walmart and should run 30 bucks for a3 month supply. They help rebuild cartilidge in joints and relieve pain. I had a 196 pound rottweiler who would cry due to pain sitting down. With these pills he stopped. The vet has other pills, but this is cheap and effective. Good luck and talk to vet if dog is on other meds.
  • Wendy - 2012-11-07
    Please look into water therapy! It has had fantastic results with other breeds. Dogs who were unable to walk are running again! Strengthening the muscles around the joints without weight dependancy is the key!

    I also have a mastiff with hip displasta my brother is a vet he sugest also giving them a single aleve for pain and a lot of love. Good luck.
