A single dwelling home is a must due to barking, and their need to be outside. *
If you rent, please provide landlord's email address in order to confirm permission.
You must have secure fencing of at least 5-feet. Some dogs will climb fencing so be prepared to adapt it so they do not. Tie outs, shock or no fencing is not acceptable*

How long will the dog be alone during the day if all adults work?*

This breed barks more than other breeds as they were bred to deter predators including butterflies two miles away. When he barks, what is your response?*
How will you exercise the dog and how often? We do not recommend dog parks in the event dogs get into a fight which will only create a fearful dog.*
What type of issues are you willing to work on with a pet? Please explain.*
Are you willing to consult with a certified veterinarian behaviourist if you run into issues beyond the Recallers program?*
Dogs like to please, even Pyrs. If there is a behaviour that is not acceptable to you, it's because he has fear/anxiety or not taught what you would like instead. Be kind and work in partnership with your dog. Be patience, persistence, and peaceful. Does this make sense and do you agree?*
Are you prepared to keep your dog well groomed so his skin stays healthy and ensure his coat remains mat-free and efficient?*
Signing up for Recallers or Home School the Dog is a prerequisite to adopting. Are you willing to do this?*
Why do you want to adopt a Great Pyrenees?*

Is there any additional information you would like to add?
I understand that bringing a new dog home is very stressful for the dog. In order to help him/her adjust, I will not expose him/her to new people, other animals or situations for a minimum of 14 days. This is very important. Please do not adopt unless you will abide by this.*
