There seems to be a lot of concern about Drooling and Great Pyrenees, not all great Pyrenees are droolers.
Before giving my thoughts on avoiding the drooler I would like to say it is no big deal! I know on the surface it seems pretty overwhelming looking in from the outside. Truth be told with a few simple modifications the drooling issue goes away and after spending a month with one of these amazing dogs you wouldn't even notice, kinda like the sheading. It is simple, arm yourself with a Drool rag (A simple trip to your linen closet to pick out a few old wash cloths will do the trick). While there grab an old table mat for under the water bowl and your 2/3 the way there, Last but not least a good mop with a long handle (a power Drooler like my Beau can hit the Ceiling when shaking his head after drinking water}. That being said I would like to say I wouldn't trade my drooling Beau for all the gold in fort Knox. If however you simply can't abide a drooler You can still have a Pyrenees! I also have a female who would be ashamed if she drooled one drop and I find it is all in the shape of the lips. Check out the 4 pictures and you can plainly see why the shape difference of the lip shape causes drooling and what to look for when shopping for your drooless Pyrenees. Also it has little to do with male and female. The key is the back of the lower lips. Check out the pictures and you will get it quickly and you will see it on the puppies you look at.
