Our family raises Great Pyrenees in our home and on a small hobby farm in northern Minnesota. Up North Pyrenees’ goal is to provide you a puppy from excellent health tested parents for your family. These big white dogs are gentle giants. Great Pyrs are an amazing dog breed that are excellent companions in the home and loyal guardians on the farm. They excel as a family pet, therapy dog, service dog, or livestock guardian. 

Up North Pyrenees breeds for excellent structure and pigmentation. We utilize genetic and radiologic testing on AKC registered parents as recommended by the AKC and the Great Pyrenees Club of America. Puppies are badger marked or all white. 

You are welcome to come visit our home upon appointment. Most Up North Pyrenees puppies go to homes in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa and Illinois. Your puppy can be air shipped throughout the USA but we prefer personal delivery for your puppy’s safety and your convenience.

We are currently accepting deposits on our SUMMER 2024 litters. TIKKA and CHARLIE’S puppies will be going home JUNE 22nd.



Up North Pyrenees


“We absolutely love our puppy from Up North Pyrenees! We named her Frannie and she has been a great addition to our family. She loves to greet everyone at the door, loves her walks, and has the cutest personality. Getting a puppy from Up North Pyrenees from Amber and Ben has been an amazing experience.” Darla R

“Rob & I cannot truly express how thankful we are for finding Ben, Amber and Up North Pyrenees! They were so thoughtful after the loss of our first Pyr & matching us with lil Miss Mina. She’s such a gorgeous puppy & her intelligence for being a LGD is already uncanny! We look forward to working with them for many years to come!” Terry B

“Up North Pyrenees has made this a wonderful experience! We also appreciate the time the family took to deliver our baby to us! We have had our Odin for 1 week now and he is loving, gentle, playful without kids and already potty trained at 8 weeks old! I would recommend this breed and breeder to anyone looking for a Great Pyrenees!” Michelle F

“Up North Pyrenees did a phenomenal job of keeping us updated throughout our puppy buying experience! They have always been and continue to communicate so well and promptly respond to any questions we have. The love their whole family gives to the puppies during the first 8 weeks is incredible. They truly want the best experience for their families and are so kind. I highly recommend them!” Anisha M

“Ben and Amber are both very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes t opicking out your Great Pyrenees puppy. They are readily available to help answer questions and offer advice. We are so happy with our healthy puppy we got from them! I highly recommend Up North Pyrenees if you are looking for a quality Pyrenees puppy.” Danielle P

“I highly recommend Up North Pyrenees. Ben and Amber were amazing to work with. The entire process from application to puppy delivery was awesome. Up North Pyrenees operates with open communication, honesty, integrity, and love in everything they do. The puppies they breed are raised with love and it shows. Our little puppy Willow is an absolute delight!” Mike M

“Up North Pyrenees has been wonderful to work with! We have a sweet puppy that we cant wait to watch grow up and love on! Our adult male Pyrenees is so patient with her too!” Alyssa N

“Our experience from start to finish has been professional and our puppy has exceeded our expectations. We are not new to having dogs, in fact we are a breeder of a rare breed, so perhaps we are even more in tune to the proper way to raise puppies, breeding good health and sound temperament as well as working with families, they did a great job. This breed however is new to us. Our puppy came wit ha very orgainzed folder with all the information we need but most of all the puppy was healthy, clean and very well socialized. She fits in with our other dogs, loves our grandson, she is smart and confident, additional signs that tell us she was well cared. She portrays the breed standard in her appearance and temperament. We feel blessed we found Up North Pyrenees. I highly recommend  Up North Pyrnees if you are looking for a GP puppy.” Theresa G  

“Having interacted with the family behind Up North Pyrenees and having experienced their wonderful puppies first hand, I can attest that this is a marvelous honest family business. Each and every puppy they sell is diligently taken care of and loved on to ensure top-notch health and longevity. Rest assured, each and every puppy is coming from an excellent family business and is going to an excellent family home. Perhaps your family’s home will be the nex? 🙂 Aaron M

“Professional and personal, we had a great experience. Highly recommend!” Blake S

” Start to finish, the experience with Up North Pyrenees has been great! They exceeded our expectations. Ben and his family obviously pour their hearts into these puppies and it shows. We recently purchased our puppy (Atlas) from Up North Pyrnees and the experience was a delight. Ben took the time to help us find the RIGHT dog for our family needs. Based on how this went, we know they will do this for your family as well. We HIGHLY recommend this breeder and we could not be happier with our new 4-legged family member. Your will not be disappointed with this breeder. If you want the BEST, select Up North Pyrenees!” Sandryne C

Urban is doing really well, he is a big ball of love! He is so wonderful and gentle with our children, especially the youngest. He has earned our trust with babies, kittens, puppies and even tiny chicks. He has never met a dog that he didn’t like but his favorite playmate is a 12 pound King Charles Spaniel, they are quite the pair! We are so grateful for the dependable protector we adopted from your family! It is always reassuring knowing he has great genes and had some wonderful early socialization with the Bleess family! I hope your family is well! Here are some long overdue photos. 


He’s great. What a sweetheart. He’s a big boy, maybe 130 pounds? Very affectionate, still mischievous. We love him to pieces. Thanks for the tip on the vitamins. We’ll check it out. 



Calvin is now called Hank, and he’s doing great! 65 lbs and just the sweetest, most laid back boy.
