excessive fur coat

My pyrenees has way too much fur. She has a very large mane of fur. Excessive fur on back legs as well. Much, much more than my other pyrenees dogs.

Coat
by: Donna

That's okay! It's great insulation for them in winter and summer. Never shave double-coated dogs. The outer coat gets wet and keeps the sun off their skin, the undercoat stays dry.

We would be hot with a coat this big but not dogs. They sweat through their paw pads and by panting.

Keep your Pyr well-brushed once a week with a slicker brush and comb to keep him free of mats and the skin healthy.
