Have they been clocked for speed? Are there and endurance information on them? Mine seem fast and can run for miles behind my atv.

Speed

Never make a dog run behind you in a vehicle. This is cruel. I hope someone reports you to the authorities.

They are not built for speed. They are guardian livestock dogs meant to wander at a slow pace with their sheep.

I would recommend that you rehome your dog to someone who cares for him and stick with your ATV.

Your dog will end up with serious injurious and be absolutely be stressed out that he has to keep up with you at such a speed.

Walk him on leash.

Do not do this with any dog. Get your head on straight.

These dogs are not built for that kind of running and indeed you can hurt that dog badly. Great Pyrenees reserve there energy for the time when the need to defend. If a predictor were to come into it's treatory the dog would first try to scare it off with it's bellowing bark, and a faux charge. If the predictor refuses to retreat he will then do battle. But his energy is kept to be used in short burst not marathons. Running a Pyrenees to far can lead to him burning to much energy droping his body sugar levels will drop to much leading to lackticasadois and death. In short you can blow his heart. He will try to please you to death. Please don't over run this dog.
