Being hot may lead to heavy panting. Signs that your Great Pyrenees is hot may include laying on the cold floor, near the air conditioner or fan or rolling in the cool dirt. Another reason why your Great Pyrenees may pant excessively is if they are overweight, which can cause them to be hot.
Why is my dog panting excessively?
It’s normal for dogs to pant, especially when they’re hot, excited, or energetic. Heavy panting is different, though, and may be a sign your dog is dangerously overheated, coping with a chronic health problem, or has experienced a life-threatening trauma.
Why is my dog panting while resting?
Many dogs will pant when they experience fear, anxiety, or stress. Examples include car rides, fireworks, separation anxiety, vet visits, and other stressful events. Look at your dog’s body language to help you determine if your dog is showing signs of fear or any other type of distress.
How often should a Great Pyrenees be bathed?
They’ll only need a bath every 3 to 4 months since their coat doesn’t really hold dirt (or it can usually be brushed out). You don’t want to go overboard, lest you irritate their skin. Don’t shave your Great Pyrenees, even in the summer.
