Roaming
by: Donna

Yes, in short. Give him 100 acres to roam and they will roam 200 acres.

Man bred the Pyr to be independent thinkers so they can roam with their grazing livestock without human intervention. Roaming is their instinct.

You need to keep your Pyr in a securely-fenced area of at least 5 feet and be prepared to add on is your dog can scale the fence.

No invisible fencing or shock collars.

Make sure to spay/neuter your dog to contain the roaming should they get out. You also don't want unwanted puppies.

The shelters and rescues in the USA are already full to overflowing with unwanted dogs with over 1 million being euthanized every year because there is no space for them.

Special breed

There is no way to take the roam out of a pyrenees. My first was my service dog and he was totally commited to me. But even at 165 he was able to get his big butt over my 6 foot fence. They have a need to roam. The best way to keep them in is to add a 18inch 45 degree turn in to the top of the fence (fence not barbed wire) also bury the bottom of the fence a foot down for digging. It add a little cost but I have corraled mine and they stay home.

Before I did this we found Beau twice sitting in front of the burger king down the street twice and I thought I watched him like a hawk. Don't be fooled by there size. They are agile and mobile.
