And thank you for adopting a dog in need of rescue. Out of curiosity, have you ever tried dog agility? I've been to dozens of matches, including two national invitationals, and I can't recall ever seeing a Great Pyrenees.
Maybe I wasn't paying attention, but dogs that big run would, I'd guess, be in the 26" class, which tends to be pretty small--the kind where I like to work as ring crew.

No, Nemo is incredibly trainable -- kind of. He learns to do what you want and then promptly stops doing it unless he wants to.

Agility - so much fun! Yes, I was working with a JRT, one of the most well-adapted breeds for agility, but I also have seen poodles, Weimeraners and even Great Danes and St Bernard's enjoying themselves on the course.

Ha, he's kind of a cat then.

My wife keeps on shooting down my pony/miniature-horse proposals -- perhaps I can sneak in a Great Pyrenees puppy...

My brother owns a Swiss mountain dog. They apparently top out at around the same size as the Pyrenees, heavier but shorter. He gave up on dog beds and just gave him a full sized love seat my parents hate. He fits better and he stopped trying to steal beds from humans.
