History

  • He originated in Siberia or Central Asia
  • He was used to guard flocks of sheep on the steep slopes of the Mountains of Pyrenees

Personality and Behavior

  • He's affectionate with you
  • He's very protective of his home and family
  • He likes to bark and it's a very loud bark
  • He makes an excellent watch dog and guard dog

Training

  • He's not easy to train. You will need patience as he is slower than most to learn obedience commands.

Shedding

  • He sheds profusely! You will find a lot of hair in your home - stuck to your couch, carpets and clothes - and to just about everything else. You will be vacuuming regularly.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His medium-length coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds profusely you may find yourself brushing it a couple of times a week, or even daily, to reduce the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
