About Berger Pyrenees
Country of Origin, History of the breed
The breed originated in France
in the 18th century. The medium-small sheepdogs
of the Pyrenees Mountains are considered to
be the oldest of the French herding dogs from
which the Berger Pyrenees originated. The
dogs were used in concert with large white
sheep guardian dogs to herd sheep. While the
smaller dogs herded the sheep the bigger ones
kept a watch over them. These dogs, called
Pyrenians, gained recognition in France after
World War I for their commendable performances
as couriers, search and rescue dogs and watchdogs.
The Berger Pyrenees breeds were developed
from these in the late 19th and 20th centuries.

A General Description of
This is a medium sized dog breed.
There are two varieties of Berger Pyrenees dogs-
the longhaired variety and the smooth-haired variety.
The longhaired dogs have long and shaggy fur that
tends to get corded easily if nor regularly brushed.
The smooth-haired dogs have smooth, shorter and
less fur. Sometimes the dogs are also classified
into 3 types by including yet another variety- the
wire-haired alongside the two varieties.
These are small to medium sized
dogs. They are thin and muscular. They have a triangular-shaped
head and a flat skull. They have a short wedge shaped
muzzle. They have expressive faces and look intelligent.
Their eyes are dark except in the case of dogs having
merles or slate gray coat color in which case the
eye color matches the color of the coat. The dogs
have semi-prick or rose ears. Their ears are often
cropped, as is the common practice in France and
Berger Pyrenees Dogs have a long
and lean body reflective of its natural energetic
nature and athletic disposition. They have well-proportioned
legs and lean, well-angulated and well-let-down
hocks. The dogs may have natural bobtails or long
tails with a crook in the end. The tails may also
be docked short.
Male: Between 15.5 inches to 22
Female: Between 15 inches and 20 inches.
Between 15 and 32 pounds.
Temperament of the Dog
As sheepdogs or herding dogs the
Berger Pyrenees Dogs are lively and energetic and
good at working at tasks. They may even be quite
mischievous at times. However, they are also a little
nervous. The longhaired varieties of the breed have
been found to be more nervous than the smooth haired
Berger Pyrenees Dogs are clever
dogs that excel at dog sports like flyball, competitive
obedience and agility. They have the temperament
of being “one-man” dogs that stay attached
and dedicated to a single master. It has been found
that the dogs can quite remarkably sense their owners’
moods and stay keen to help them out in all ways.
This quality also makes the dogs very easily trainable
by their owners.
Though the dogs enjoy being around
the families of their owners they are wary of strangers.
They also do not tolerate annoyances from children.
They make good guardians and are excellent as watchdogs.
They are vivacious and quick-witted and seem competent
of carrying out just any task.
It is important that the Berger
Pyrenees Dogs are socialized from a very young age
for, otherwise, these valuable herding dogs may
develop traits of shyness or aggression which is
How active is the breed?
The Berger Pyrenees is a very active
dog. Hence, it is important that its owner spend
at least one hour each day with it- making it exercise
via long walks and dog sports. The dogs should also
be allowed to run without being leashed.
Suitable for apartment
An active person experienced in
handling dogs and staying in rural environs will
be able to best maintain Berger Pyrenees Dogs as
pets. Being herding dogs the Berger Pyrenees are
more at home in a rural backdrop. Hence, it is better
that the dogs be provided with outdoor country settings
at some suburban area rather than being kept in
a city home.
The dog requires moderate grooming.
The coat texture of the dog is resistant to tangling.
Hence, normally a quick brushing only once a week
is required. However, when the coat sheds more frequent
brushing will be needed. In case the hair of the
coat becomes tangled (as it may often happen in
case of long-haired dogs) then it is advisable to
spray a grooming conditioner on the area. Regular
checks need to be carried out for burrs or knots
so as to ensure that the coat is kept in good condition.
The Berger Pyrenees is regarded
as a healthy and hardy breed. They are particularly
resistant to distemper. However, the breeding stock
need be tested for Hip Dysplasia.
