Hard Headed

My Mom's Pyrenees is VERY hard headed, he won't stop messing in the house. He does NOT like when the other dog goes into her room, he gets VERY nasty towards the other dog. What should we do?

Thanks Phil

Pyrs are independent minded and you must be patient with them. That is the breed. Learn more about the breed here:

You haven't house trained your dog. You need to take your dog out for regular walks so he can do his business. He needs a routine of at least one big walk a day and then a short walk at noon, before dinner and before bed to do his business.

If you see him start to do his business in the house (he'll start to lift his leg or circle to defecate), simply take him outside for a walk to do his business. When he does, say 'good boy' and take him back in the house.

You cannot expect him to know things if you don't help him along with positive reinforcement training.

I suspect your one dog is being very protective of your mother. You can't do much about this.

Make sure they are both spayed or neutered which will may help with being territorial.

I suggest you bring in a positive-reinforcement trainer to show you how to manage your dog. Do you use aggressive/negative techniques on a dog.
