Are Great Pyrenees Good Family Dogs?

Yes, great Pyrenees are good family dogs. These gentle giants are loyal, protective, and intelligent. They are fine with children of all ages and will respond patiently even if the play gets a little rough. They’ll also bond with other family pets. In addition, they’re not hyperactive or attention-seeking and will join in with family activities without becoming over-demanding.

However, due to their origins in guarding livestock against predators such as wolves, it is important that they’re socialized from an early age. They need help to understand that not every human or animal outside their family group is a potential threat that needs to be scared away.
