Pyr Sheps excel at tracking and Search & Rescue. In France they are often used to find truffles - a skill requiring speed & accuracy! (And sometimes secrecy...)

Pyr Sheps were used in both World Wars to find downed soldiers and to carry messages across enemy lines.

In 2004, Pyr Sheps will become eligible for AKC tracking competitions & titles. We hope soon to see Pyr Sheps fulfilling their potential in this field here in North America. They have already proven themselves top competitors in Europe. Several Pyr Sheps have been #1 all-breeds in tracking. The Pyr Shep pictured above, Ubac de l'Oustaou de Padel, was top tracking dog all-breeds in France for 3 years in a row in the late 1980's.
