  • Care

    Great Pyrenees have dirt-and tangle-resistant coats that require minimal grooming. Brush them at least once per week—more often during seasonal shedding—to remove cast-off hair. A pin brush or slicker brush can help reduce shedding. Great Pyrenees also require regular ear cleanings, nail trims, and a dental care routine that includes at-home teeth-brushing and professional cleanings. Start these grooming essentials when Great Pyrenees are puppies to ensure they are part of a lifelong habit.

    Great Pyrenees are susceptible to bloat. Multiple small meals rather than fewer, larger meals can help reduce the risk. Be careful not to overfeed Great Pyrenees. Portion out their food with a measuring cup and limit treats to no more than 10% of their daily calories.
