Great Pyredane Breed Maintenance
This crossbreed typically has fairly simple grooming requirements as both parent breeds have hair that tends to shed dirt and water, virtually eliminating the need for regular bathing unless the dog gets into something objectionable, even for those dogs that do inherit the full, thick coat of the Great Pyrenees. The Great Pyredane tends to shed year round and regular brushing is required to remove dead hairs and keep the coat supple and healthy, usually at least two to three times a week. The large hanging ears of this canine may be slightly prone to developing infections, so they should be cleaned and evaluated on a regular basis.
Great Pyredanes often suffer from hip dysplasia and bloat. Secure pet health insurance today to avoid high veterinary care costs. Our pet insurance tool lets you compare plans from leading companies like Figo and Spot. Find the “pawfect” plan for your pet in just a few clicks!
