We are over the moon with our Pyredoodles! We have perfected our Pyredoodles over the past few years - with a wonderful temperament, character, health and beautiful appearance!
Pyredoodles are an intentional cross of the Great Pyrenees and the Standard Poodle- to create the Hybrid called the Pyredoodle. The Poodle brings high intelligence, non-shedding, and general over all health.
Great Pyrenees are huge, majestic dogs. Known for their unconditional love for family, guardian instincts against intruders, and gorgeous thick white coats, Pyrenees are well-known as livestock protectors as well as wonderful family dogs. Great Pyrenees typically rank as being excellent family dogs; very friendly with their family and great with kids.
Because of the amazing and infamous characteristics of the Standard Poodle and Great Pyrenees, we thought they would make a fantastic fusion! It turns out- we were right! Since both breeds have a lot in common, such as high intelligence, fierce loyalty to their families and charges, affectionate, kid friendly, guardian and working dogs, they are a match made in Heaven. Training is easy with these smart pups. Our Pyredoodles make a wonderful family dog, and with training (as you would any LGD puppy) a Livestock Guardian.
Pyredoodles are a very unique Doodle in many ways- perhaps one of the best reasons for families is that they are entirely devoted to children and small animals. They LIVE to protect small things. They are one of the only doodle breeds that can function as a watch dog. Most doodles are just as likely to lick, as intruder as to bark. Pyredoodles tend to be fine with "strangers" who are welcomed by the family, but anyone that is uninvited will be very suspect to a typical Pyredoodle. They are not all an aggressive breed, but will analyze the new person, usually from a few feet away or in between you and the new person- and wait for the all clear from you.
Both parent breeds do have some very distinct differences. We have chosen the best of each breed for our Hybrid crosses. Our Pyredoodles tend to be very low key, yet playful puppies. As adult dogs, they will have minimal exercise needs, but gladly play with you more. If you are looking for a puppy to snuggle with and take long walks, this is your perfect match! They adore their family, and are usually moderately friendly with new people, after the . They tend to take cues from you, as to who is okay and who might not be. Since they are very aware of everything going on around them, they make a great “guard dog”.
The Poodles' non-shedding coat is hypo-allergenic. Because the poodle coat is the dominant gene, many poodle crosses (often called doodles) get the non-shedding coat. This is particularly the case with thick coated dogs like the Great Pyrenees. Families who want an inside dog appreciate a low-to-non shedding coat that the Pyredoodle offers.
The Great Pyrenees brings amazing watch dog abilities, which means that most of them bark- a lot. Poodles can also be great watch dogs on their own, making this Hybrid great for gentle personal protection. As with all of our Hybrids bred for pet purpose- we intentionally use calm and quiet Poodles. The Pyredoodles will be good watch dogs. Depending on the amount of socialization, they will probably analyze strangers before they relax around new people. They have an intuition like no other- very intune to their people, and everything around them. They can easily be a social butterfly at the dog or people park, with socialization at a young age.
They are excellent “babysitters” for children- they will never allow anyone or anything to come between them and their child or their animals. These gentle, giant beauties are calm and laid back, with the males being even more so, and are quite content with long naps and air conditioning. They love to play and run with the family, and are water babies. They are well aware of their size, but selectively forget when they choose to be a lap dog.
Last, but certainly not least- intelligence- there is none like the Pyredoodle. They have the extreme intelligence of the Poodles, with the ability to learn and follow commands and tricks combined with the ability to analyze and make decisions as to what do in situations from the Pyrs. The Great Pyrenees was originally bred to guard and care for Sheep in the Pyrenees Mountains. The shepherds would leave them for periods of time, and the dogs would have to analytically think to do their job. Using working lines in our Hybrids keeps this trait in our Pyredoodles. These characteristics alone make them not only fantastic pets and LGDS, but probably the best service and support dog.
Hair. Pyredoodles have A LOT of hair! Thick, silky coats with tons of waves are just one of many traits that set this Hybrid apart. We specialize in Parti colored and factored Pyredoodles- with Red and Black bases- they come in black, red, champagne, cafe au lait, apricot, white and cream. They do require grooming, although the frequency and type is a personal preference, with the face and feet needing to be trimmed more often. They have very low shedding coats, with regular bushings helping to maintain that.
They are Standard Size dogs. Females average 70-80 pounds, and males 80-100 pounds.
Our Pyredoodles begin at $1000 in price, depending on sex, color, markings, and type of registration. A deposit of $350 is required to reserve your puppy choice. We can’t wait to help you write your furever love story!
