Great Pyrenees as LGD

Over the years I have collected some information about research and experience using the Great Pyrenees as LGD some of it I got from friends and some from the internet. I will try to list the source to the best of my knowledge. But if there is any material which should not be published on my site, please contact me and I will remove it. There is no comercial interest in publishing this information, only to educate my fellow Pyr friends. Most of the information covers not only the Great Pyrenees used as Livestock Guarding Dog but other breeds too. Some of the documentation is downloadable as pdf file.

To see the video from Norway go to the website of Laugtun and then click on the left on the link "Video"
