Berger des Pyrenees Breed Maintenance
The Berger des Pyrenees has two distinct looks: smooth faced or rough faced. The rough faced obviously has a furrier face, although his eyes should never be hidden by the hair on his face. Both the smooth faced and rough faced Berger des Pyrenees come in two varieties: demi-long or long haired. No matter what variety or type, the Berger des Pyrenees has a harsh coat that does not mat easily and it does not shed much. As the long haired variety matures, his coat may naturally cord. The amount of grooming required does depend on the variety or coat type. The smooth faced and demi-long needs to be thoroughly brushed only a few times a month. He can be brushed more often to remove any loose hairs or dirt. The rough faced and long haired need to be brushed at least once a week to prevent mats from forming and to keep their coat conditioned. A coat that is corded does require special care and cleaning.
