Q&A

I was planning to get a Golden Pyreneese as a livestock guardian and pet. I want the gentle nature of the Golden Retriever and the guardian instinct of the Pyreneese. Does anyone know whether the Golden Pyreneese retains that strong guardian instinct? As much as I would like to get one, I am not willing to sacrafice that strong guardian instinct. If uncertain, I will get a Great Pyreneese instead.

I have a Golden Pyrness. Casper is an incredible dog! He has strong guardian instincts. He patroles our fence and let's me know with a particular bark if someone or something is near his territory. He also has a tendancy to herd my other dogs, cats, and even kids! On the flip side, he has the most gentle, calm, and loving dispositon of a Golden Retriever. My Chin-Wa (weighs six pounds) even puts her head in his mouth and cleans his teeth! The only downside is the thick, dense undercoat that needs a lot of brushing. We live in a very cold cliamate, so he loves to sleep in snowbanks.


we have a golden pyrenees, she is the perfect mix to meet your needs. I have a 12 year old son who has mental problems. when we go for walks she does not leave him behind or if she thinks he is being slow she barks at him, she is always checking the fence and if the gate is left open she does not leave the yard but will sit and bark until we come close the gate. She is very good with other animals, and loves all babies human, kittens, cows ect. You could not ask for a better dog in my eyes.
