Pyrenees Body Odor

by Lisa
(San Antonio, TX)

I have had people tell me that Great Pyrenees dogs will take on the odor of the livestock/animals they are guarding. This statement is justified by the reasoning that they will blend in easier with their herd and spook them less.

Is this true? I do not remember any unusual odors from the Great Pyrenees our family had when I was growing up.

Thank you.

Body Odor

I suspect they would take on the odor of the animals which they guard since they are in amongst them all the time. It's not to say a Pyr doesn't have their own smell but their coats would absorb the animals smell, too. There would be a combination of smells.

It's important to groom these Pyrs weekly to ensure they don't mat. Mats can be painful for them. Also, you want to ensure their skin stays healthy, too.
