Great Pyrenees by Joan Hustace Walker- I've heard this is a straight forward, no nonsense book about the Great Pyrenees breed. Includes information on purchasing, care, behaviour and more.

Great Pyrenees                                                                                           Andrew M. Jonson,                                                                                                      A very generic book on the Great Pyrenees. This is the first book that I could find on the breed, as it says its the #1 best selling Pyr book....this could be true, but it is due to the price tag and definitely not for quality. It gives very little in-depth information about the breed. Concentrates mostly on History and Breed Standard in the first few pages, then the rest is common puppy care info. I would suggest that you spend your money on one of the other books listed above. Copyright © 1990 T.F.H Publications, Inc.

She helps you decide which breed it right for you. Where to acquire that new pup. Training, socialization, discipline methods etc. An excellent source of information, about  rearing your puppy!
