The pyreneanshepherds.com website is dedicated to the increase and dissemination of knowledge about Pyrenean Shepherds (Berger des Pyrénées) for both breeders and owners.

Ultimately our goal is to create a space to bring us all together to help preserve the past and protect the future of this beloved breed; therefore we are an “open source” not connected to any club, organization, or company. This site is international and for everyone that loves the Pyrenean Shepherd and desires to work together out of devotion to the breed.


This site is both about health and genetics in the Pyrenean Shepherd (Berger des Pyrénées), and it is also about maintaining breed type and soundness. We must maintain all of these things in balance.

Breed Type + Soundness + Good Health = A Future for the Pyrenean Shepherd

Without access to information about breed type, sound structure and hereditary diseases, breeders and owners cannot make informed decisions related to preserving our past and protecting our future, especially in a breed with small numbers like the Pyrenean Shepherd. It is imperative then, for breeders to focus not only on their own breeding programs, but on working together with others to maintain this wonderful breed into the future.


We hope you will join us!
