About Us

Hi, and welcome to our site! Thank you for choosing to spend a few moments with us!

We are a family of 5 who bought a hobby farm in rural Missouri about 18 months ago. As new “farmers,” we were looking for a livestock guardian dog to protect our chickens, goats, and rabbits.

Many of our friends also own livestock, and they introduced us to the Great Pyrenees breed. We were immediately taken by these gentle giants!

So after several weeks of searching Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace, we found May, our new Great Pyrenees puppy!

Born in June 2021, May is a wonderful dog who loves her family and her job of protecting our animals! She is so patient with our three children and makes a great family dog.

It hasn’t all been roses, however, and there have been many frustrating days with her as we’ve helped train her for her role on the farm. She’s independent, stubborn, and protective of her territory.

As we’ve worked through our challenges with the Great Pyrenees breed, we decided to create a site dedicated to our experience and the help we received from our friends!

We hope that you find the answers you’re searching for on our site!

If there is something you’d like clarification or help with, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at annette@mygreatpyrenees.com with your questions!

Again, thank you for your time!
