Want to own a royal dog from France? None of the other breeds can beat the great Pyrenee. The beautiful white coat, the gigantic size, the independent personality, and their commanding presence is the reason for the increase in the popularity of this truly regal canine.

Because of their origin, they have some protective instincts as well. Along with their protective behavior, the Pyrenees are known for their loyalty and devotion to their family. 

 Like a human, the Pyrenees also want to have a busy life schedule. In general, they love participating in every activity of their family. As soon as they are done waiting for the next activity, they will throw themselves into playing and walking. But it is not possible for them to stay busy all the time without any involvement from the human partner. 

As a master of such a loyal and devotee dog, we must keep them entertained. We know humans have a lot of work to do. It is often difficult for every owner to manage time and energy to keep the Pyrenees busy all the time. 

But in this guide, we present you some tactics that you can use in order to keep your Pyrenees not only busy but also entertained. Before going to the methods to keep the Pyrenees busy, one should know the signs of boredom in the Pyrenees.

The best you can do to keep your Pyrenees busy is to give them a bit of your attention.  

In your free time, take your Pyrenees out for a long walk. Play with them and walk in the park or garden. The least you can do is to take them at least to a shop. 

In your resting time, you can keep them engage in toys. Just throw some toys like a ball on them, and they will get engage in that toy, letting you rest and watch TV. 

In the case when nothing is possible, just allow your Pyrenees to play with you. This will make them feel close to you. The feel of being close will not reduce their boredom but will at least keep them happy throughout the day.

When none of the above methods work, it is time to seek help from an animal expert or veterinarian.
