The Maremma is a very hardy breed, able to live and thrive in both warm and cold weather circumstances. Their double coat keeps them warm in winter and cool in summer.
In Holland, all breeding dogs are tested for hip and elbow dysplasia. It is not allowed to breed pedigree dogs with moderate or poor hip or elbow scores.
