Pyrenean Mastiff Breed Maintenance
The Pyrenean Mastiff is not a hypoallergenic breed and continually sheds. Dogs that are being exhibited in conformation shows should be groomed several times a week. Dogs that are strictly family companions or working dogs should be groomed at least once a week. His coat will tangle and matt easily, therefore, using a pin brush, metal comb, de-tangling spray and even a dematter may be necessary to keep his coat free of shedding and tangles. Because his coat is very dense, it may take a while to groom completely through him; however, this is necessary to minimize the amount of shedding. The hair between his foot pads should be trimmed every few weeks, especially if he is out in the fields working and can pick up dirt and debris between his pads. Because he is a Mastiff breed, there will be drooling, especially after eating or drinking. The Pyrenean Mastiff does not need bathed often, usually only a few times a year.
