||This page is an introduction to
our Great Pyrenees pages. There's plenty of interesting stuff on
this page plus it allows you to navigate to all the pages in our Great
Pyrenees section by clicking on the buttons to the left.. Great Pyrenees for sale and our guarantee are in the For Sale pages.
We have some general information on the procedures we
use to maintain our dogs' health. At the bottom of the page are profiles of dogs
that have served a critical role in the life of Bountiful Farm.

|Over the preceding years, we have written a series of
articles on LGDs and consolidated them for
a presentation on LGDs during the 2005 and 2006 Langston University Goat Field Days in
Langston, Oklahoma. The LGD
Seminar button above will take you to the written version of our
presentation. On paper, the information took about 20 pages but is
presented here in one continuous page.

OFA stands for Orthopedic Foundation for Animals and are the people who do the
dysplasia certifications. A dog must be two years old to have his or her
hips certified. As a large breed, breeding Great Pyrenees should be
checked at two years to insure they have good hips with no sign of
dysplasia. All of our breeding dogs have been or will be submitted
for certification when they were or will be two years old. Jake, Daisy, Sunshine,
Clark, Frank, Cara, Red and D'Anouk have been certified. Pat will be certified
the spring of 2007; Echo in the winter of 2007/2008 and Amy in the spring of
veterinarian's advice, our dogs are treated monthly for
heartworm with Ivomec, before you continue this practice, see your vet for
dosage and a recommendation to continue. If you have any collie breeds, be aware
that Ivomec can be lethal to them. We do our own fecal samples and worm as
necessary. We treat for external parasites with Frontline and use both Bio-Spot, Diatomaceous Earth,
and Zema Tick Detach collars (same as Preventic collars, just
cheaper) as additional preventatives when necessary..
All of our dogs have veterinarian administered rabies shots. We
administer a seven way lepto shot that covers the common canine diseases.
Great Pyrenees live in the field and forest stopping intruders. With
rabies transmitted through mammals that are likely to be found by these dogs, we
feel a rabies shot for your Great Pyrenees is a must.
These dogs have served a critical role in the life of
Bountiful Farm and we will remember them always
Bountiful Goldrush Jake (OFA GP-4111G26M-PI)
was our first really great stud dog. He passed away July 9, 2002 and we plan to keep his bloodline active for the life of Bountiful. He was a master at work with
his goats (watching him introduce himself to new goats that didn't know about
Great Pyrenees was a joy) and there was no quit in him.
|Cara de Soum du Prat D'Ourey (OFA GP-4792G24F-PI) is gone long before
her time. She passed away July 19, 2006. She was our first
imported dog and became an excellent guardian. She set the standard
for both personal and professional behavior in a working Great Pyrenees.
If goats could talk, any pregnant doe would ask for her companionship during
delivery. Cara was fiercely protective during the process of kidding while
being so unobtrusive that she seemed to disappear. We miss her.
Echo Soum du Prat D'ourey passed away February 10, 2007. She was an
excellent guardian and her loss is a severe blow to us personally and to
Bountiful Farm's breeding program.
|Shadow was a rescue dog from Houston and the second dog we ever had as a
permanent part of Bountiful Farm. She was actually a pretty good LGD
but she was a great teacher. Though her diligence, we learned how to
stop dogs that climbed, dogs that dug and dogs that squeezed. Goats
and a different dog taught us how to stop jumping because by the time Shadow
delivered her graduate course in escape prevention we had been in school for
four years and out tuition was running out while Shadows tenure was wearing
quite thin. It all had a happy ending though and Shadow passed quietly
this Spring and seemed to have no regrets. While we're happy she
has no peer as a teacher we do miss her quiet presence, and, once we
graduated, her dependability.
