History

The Pyrador is a designer dog, the intentional crossbreed between an exceptional guardian of sheep from the Pyrenees mountains, and the Labrador Retriever, a good-natured hunting dog and the most popular breed of dog in the United States 26 years in a row.

Care and Health

Major concerns include the possibility Elbow Dysplasia, Retinal Dysplasia, Hip Dysplasia and Gastric Dilation Volvulus (GDV) or Bloat. The grooming requirements for this canine are relatively uncomplicated and don’t require a large time commitment. Although these dogs will need baths a couple of times a year, and when they get into anything dirty or smelly, they shouldn’t be bathed too often to prevent a loss of natural oils to the coat and irritation to the skin. Brushing sessions should take place at least weekly, although a few times a week is best to ensure that all of the dead hair is removed and the coat stays shiny and healthy. It is also important to be sure that the Pyrador’s ears are kept clean and dry and are checked for infections or irritation on a regular basis.
