Great Pyrenees dogs were originally bred to be independent dogs that could guard flocks of sheep on mountains, and perhaps, your dog has retained that genetic disposition. More than likely, though, she was neglected as a puppy and did not bond with any human during this critical stage of her development.
Although she may never become an affectionate, playful dog, it sounds like she has made significant strides since you adopted her. I would continue working with her trainer and setting incremental goals.
As far as being outside is concerned, make sure that she has plenty of cool drinking water and shade. Put up a tarp over the areas she likes to dig. She may just find her hole in the ground a cool place to lie down. And, of course, check on her periodically to make sure that she is o.k.
