Brushing and grooming of your Great Pyrenees dog are activities that help to reinforce the positive relationship bond between your family pet and you. Brushing should be a pleasurable and comfortable experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Great Pyrenees
Dogs with short coats frequently require less brushing and grooming compared to dogs with medium to long haired coats as these longer coats can get tangles, mats and debris trapped in them more easily.
Some very short-haired dogs may not need standard 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to gently remove loose hair, occasionally.
Dogs should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should keep an eye on the condition of their dog's coat, trying to find any tangles/mats or dullness which indicates they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a couple of minutes to several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
