Great Pyrenees Discussions / Feeding a raw food diet?

Does anyone do this?  The puppy we will be getting will be started this way and I don't have any experience with it.  Should I continue or transfer to another food?  I have read some information about it but am still a little confused about how it works exactly.  How long does it take for your dog to actually eat the meal.  I am worried about having a raw chicken carcass carried into my den for chewing :-).  Any hands on info is greatly appreciated.

Great Pyrenees Discussions / socializing pyr puppy

What is the ideal way to socialize a Pyr pup and is there anything unique to socializing this breed relative to other breeds?  What is involved with raising a puppy with potential for future therapy work?  Any information is greatly appreciated.

Great Pyrenees Discussions / raising Great Pyrs with other dogs
« on: January 08, 2006, 10:52:23 pm »
We are seriously considering a Great Pyr however my question is....  how difficult is it to raise this type of breed with another dog in the household (1 1/2 year old Standard Poodle)?  I was told that a puppy raised with another dog will bond to our other dog making training very difficult if not impossible.  Is there any truth to this? 

Although I have some experience with flock guards as we had a Kuvasz many years ago, I have no direct experience with Great Pyrs.  Are there differences in type amoung the breed and if so, how do I know which is the best "type" for a family/companion dog?  Also, any suggestions on what bloodlines have the best temperament for family life or does it not matter?  Is there anyway to determine if a puppies head or lip conformation will predispose it to drooling or is this something that a reputable breeder will have taken care of :-).  Thanks for any information.
