I horse around with him but how do I keep his brain stimulated

Do not encourage play with your Pyr. They are too big for such play unless your dog is gentle and will not jump on you in play. If he will run around in play, that is fun, but not jump up. You can turn your back on him if he tries that. He'll get the message that you will ignore him if he jumps up.

Take him to dog parks to play with other dogs or find a neighbour with a dog. You can invite the neighbour's dog over (do proper introductions of the property) to play with your dog. You can go there.

Walk him in different forests areas so there are many smells for him. Don't always do the same route. That would be boring. Let him sniff about. Switch up the walking areas.

Go on hiking trips with him.

Take your dog to obedience classes to interact with other dogs.

Cart your dog. Here is a link to some information on it:

Perhaps there are dog walking 'clubs' in your area.

Pyrs are laid back. They are happy to watch over their property mixed well with walks in different areas. Your dog will be fine.

Take him on road trips, too, in cooler weather.

I hope that has given you some ideas, Anna.
