Can they be trained to stay within a large perimeter?

We live on 60 acres., with only horse fencing. Can a pyrenees be trained to stay behind the horse fencing and not climb in between the fence rails?

I wouldn't trust it. Pyr's are known to roam further than their property. Mine thinks she owns the whole upper mountain behind our house in backyard, she'd go up there if she could but we have 8 ft fencing. She tried to scale the steep incline, got half-way up and couldn't go any further due to the steepness, but probably would if she could to supposedly "guard" all our property up there and roam wherever and then we'd have to go find her; so up went the 8 ft fencing against the hillside. I wouldn't trust the horse fencing, you'll have to go look for your Pyr because if they see a predator near or something that looks interesting to them, they'll go towards it or wander. I'd hate for you to lose your Pyr's by taking this chance. Just my opinion but I've read that if you own a Pyr, you must have adequate fencing not something they could slip through or climb over.....they're too beautiful to lose and have to go find. Hope this helps.
