Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of DogProblems.com. Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.

Golden Pyrenees Q&A

Ask a Question

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.
