plus or minus?
by: Anonymous

"Survival", period, should not be your goal for your Pyrenees. Ever. They deserve much more than that.
That said, given proper shelter from extreme temps, companion animals to aid for warmth in the minus temps., good ventilation and shade in the plus temps....your Pyr can survive. But he will not thrive. His life will be diminished, much shorter and very harsh.
Will you expect your Pyr to exist in this manner? I sincerely hope not.

Yes, they can survive providing they have a cool place to live. If they are a working dog, they need to have the shade of trees under which to stay cool. Or, just somewhere to go to get away from the heat.

If a companion dog, they don't need much exercise especially if it is a humid heat. If you walk your dog a lot, you'll see how they manage after the walk. If it takes them a long time to cool down, keep exercise to a minimum.

Also, make sure to brush them out weekly to keep the coat from matting (along with the ear cleaning and nail trimming) and allow their coat to breathe.

a cool day
by: Ed A from NJ

I have to fight with mine to get him in the house he loves cold weather and if it is snowing forget it I have to close the doggie door or I never get him to stay in. Short answer yes they can but I don't let him stay out long in that

That's a little below o)Celcius so yes. But be reasonable and make sure they have a nice cosy and warm place out of the rain and wind, water (or fresh snow, accent on fresh and not soot-covered), good covering of dry straw on the floor of the shelter.

after all, you aren't supposed to deliberately put them in unfavourable conditions!

Why, exactly, are you asking? Are there Pyrs in that situation that need help?
