will letting my puppy out of his fence confuse him?

I just brought home our 3.5 month old Pyrenees puppy. He is in a fenced area and is doing well. At what point can I let him out to be with me around the house and property. Will this confuse him and make him want to escape? I want him to be a pet/ companion as well as guardian to our small livestock. Thanks Thanks

true wander
by: Ed

I see your a new pyre owner, your confused and think your the boss. No matter how well you train your puppy he is a Pyrenees and he has a job to do. For 5000 year they have been doing it better then any dog. So when you open that gate he is on duty. He isn't going to run a way in a shot. He is going to survey his land (every thing in his site) see his charges (every animal on his property) Then while your taking care of anything he is going to wander his property to be sure all his charges are safe. Your best bet is to love him and try to teach him the boundery of his true area. Get him to know his true charges and then make him know you want him to do his work. He will better then you can believe. But never never make the mistake of believing your the boss. Be alpha if your can but if you try to make him something he is not you got the wrong breed. 5000 years of ginetics don't fade away.

Fencing
by: Donna

Pyrs were bred to wander with the animals in their care. Take a fence away, and they'll wander every inch of free space. It's their instinct.

As for being alpha, please read this article https://apdt.com/pet-owners/choosing-a-trainer/dominance/

All you can do is give your dog guidance. Train with patience and treats and you'll be amazed at how far that will get you.
