Fresh Food for Great Pyrenees
Mellow but vigilant, imposing but friendly, the Great Pyrenees is a dog of great contradictions. Originating in the mountain range that separates Spain and France, these gentle giants were bred to protect flocks of sheep from hungry wolves. Nowadays, most Pyrs happily pass their days as family dogs, but they are still independent thinkers who need training and a job to do in order to thrive.
A healthy diet of fresh food is one of the best ways to care for your Pyr and give them a long, healthy, active life—along with a loving “flock” to watch over.

Why fresh is best for your Great Pyrenees

Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Great Pyrenees’s odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer. A fresh-food plan tailored to your dog’s needs, and delivered in pre-portioned packs, makes weight maintenance easy.
Great Pyrenees are prone to joint issues, especially hip dysplasia and patellar luxation. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis. Even if kibble contains these healthy fats, they can go rancid sitting on the shelf for long periods. Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact.
Know what’s in the bowl
For Pyrs with dry and itchy skin, sensitive stomachs, or other signs of food allergies and sensitivities, it’s important to know exactly what you’re feeding—something that can be impossible with kibble, which often contains ingredients not listed on the bag. Allergies and intolerances to food are all too common, and many dog owners notice symptoms clear up when they switch to fresh food.
