Before taking the Pyrenean Mastiff puppy to your home you will have to prepare a place that is own of the puppy, in the house or a small house abroad, if possible of building work with wood floor, large enough for the dog can sleep, stand up and turn around comfortably when was an adult.

The Pyrenean mastiff will not live very well in a flat, ideally he shoyld have a fenced area with access to shade and water.
All utensils (bed, toys, cage, leash, collar, food or water containers, etc.) that you purchase for your Pyrenean Mastiff should be the larger and stronger than you can find.

They are dogs with balanced character which don’t present behavioral problems, but their education should not be neglected and be firm from the outset. It is preferable to prevent problems stopping unwanted behaviors when they start, with a firm "No!" and avoiding them from doig it, as many times as necessary. Reprimand the dog when you get catch him, doing it later is useless because he won’t understand it.

They respond favorably to positive training methods, based on rewards (food and / or praise). Praise him constantly each time he does well.

The puppy matures slowly, contrary to its growth as it grows very quickly during its first months of life and yet doesn’t reach maturity until it is three years old. Their average weight as an adult is around 87 kg the males and 72 kg the females.

In the development stage it is important to ensure that its diet is balanced. To avoid bone and joint problems it is adisable to watch its weight, he should not be skinny or overweight, we recommend low-impact exercise and a balanced diet.

The best diet for our Pyrenean Mastiff is the dry fodder, preferably from a Premium range appropriate to each stage of his life and in the amount specified by the manufacturer, which will provide all the necessary nutrients.

As for the dreaded stomach torsion, the factors that must be avoided because they propitiate it are: large meals and at one time, eating too fast, eat before and after exercise or heavy drinking. We also recommend placing the feeder at about 30 cm. height so the dog does not have to bend much to eat.
They also must have clean, fresh water at all times.

The Pyrenean Mastiff breed does not need much exercise, it is enough with the regular walks, games or letting them run loose in an enclosed area.

The maintenance of their hair consists of a regular brushing, more often in the molting season, to help remove dead hair. They should be brushed all over. It is self-cleaning, if it gets dirty with land is cleaned by brushing when it is dry. Frequent baths are not recommended.
