Overview
The Saint Bernard is a very ancient breed that was founded in AD 980. The most popular use of these gentle giants is in the area of search and rescue. The Saint Bernards uncanny ability to sense imminent danger, coupled with their heightened abilities of smell and direction, make this breed a useful and trustworthy worker and companion.
Character
The Saint Bernard is extremely loyal and friendly. They are powerful and muscular but never ill natured. They are faithful, highly intelligent, and unassuming. The Saint Bernard is imposing in size but displays a mellow and benevolent demeanor.
Temperament
The Saint Bernard has a somewhat sorrowful expression, but is actually very good-natured. They are excellent with children and other animals. They have a protective instinct for their family and make excellent watchdogs. They are sensible and loving and make a great family pet. They may display stubbornness, so owners must be very patient. They thrive on high amounts of love and attention. The Saint Bernard is prone to anxiety if left alone for extended periods of time and may destroy their owner's home and belongings.
Care
The Saint Bernard's coat is shed twice a year. They require daily brushing with a firm bristle brush to keep hair around the home down to a minimal amount. Bathing should only be done when necessary using a mild shampoo to avoid stripping the coat of its essential oils. Their eyes and ears must be checked and cleaned regularly to keep them free of irritants. The Saint Bernard is prone to such health issues as wobbler syndrome, heart problems, skin disorders, and bloating. They have no tolerance for hot weather.
Coat
The Saint Bernard breed has two different coat varieties: the smooth or shorthaired, and the rough or longhaired. Both varieties of coat are extremely dense in texture and are water resistant. The coat of the Saint Bernard is typically white with tan, red, mahogany, black or brindle markings in various combinations. They are heavy shedders.
Training
The Saint Bernard must be socialized at an early age while they are still a manageable size. They have a strong desire to please their owner and will respond best to gentle, patient, firm, and consistent training. The Saint Bernard does well with elementary exercises and obedience such as heeling, sitting, and staying.
Activity
The Saint Bernard requires a moderate amount of outdoor exercise. It is important they do not become over-heated. They enjoy daily walks and play sessions. They are suitable for apartment living provided they are given frequent walks. They will enjoy a yard of any size but it must be securely fenced.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Saint Bernard - St. Bernard puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

The correct words you are looking for are spayed and neutered. Thank you for doing so, it is much healthier for your dogs and will give dogs/puppies whom are in shelters and rescues a better chance at finding a home.

Any dog can attack. No matter the age, breed(s), or size. However, the St. Bernard is one of the dog's considered to be a gentle giant, but that does not mean that he/she can not become aggressive towards people/other dogs/other animals. The St. Bernard that is well bred, well trained and socialized properly will be an excellent family member and a great canine companion. But the St. Bernard whom is badly bred, not socialized properly and not trained can become aggressive with people, dogs and/or other animals.

The movie 'Cujo' star's a St. Bernard that has rabies and attacks several people in the movie. Some people whom have seen the movie will feel fear when they see a St. Bernard because of the movie. The problem with that is that the energy of the person changes and the dog feels fear from the human and feels like he/she needs to protect him/herself and may turn aggressive because of that. If you are thinking of getting a St. Bernard, please get one from a qualified, dedicated and knowledgeable breeder that breeds for sound temperament and health. Pain can be another reason why dogs become aggressive all of a sudden, so please make sure if there are any sudden behavioral problems to take your dog to a vet a.s.a.p.

Unless you are a responsible, dedicated and knowledgeable breeder, you shouldn't be breeding. If you are an aspiring St. Bernard breeder, then go to some dog shows and get in contact with a responsible/qualified breeder in your area. You MUST do your research with any breed, but especially with the St. Bernard as they have so many health issues that can be devastating for the breed/dog. Unless your male is of impeccable breeding and has gone through extensive health tests, his conformation/title career should have already started by now. Responsible and dedicated breeder's do not stud their males until they are titled in conformation and/or draft, therapy, weight pulling and obedience. Health checks can not be finished until the dog is two years old. On average, two years is the earliest a responsible, qualified, knowledgeable, and dedicated breeder will start using their male for breeding purposes. Please get your dog neutered if you do not wish to breed responsibly.

Bullmastiff maybe? If you don't know who your puppy's parents are, then I highly doubt it's a purebred puppy. He is most likely a mixed breed, but it's possible that he's PART St. Bernard. Find his parents, and you will be able to get a better idea of what breed(s) he is. If you want to look through all of the purebreds anyway, to see if you spot one like him - here - have fun - this is ALL of the different dog breeds: http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/abc.htm

If you are looking for the largest litter recorded for the St.Bernard, the number would be 14 puppies.

when do saint bernard loose puppy fur When does a saint loose his puppy fur

It can really vary! If you get a spring puppy he could easily be losing his puppy fur already by 4 or 5 months, depending on your climate... But alot of my Saints have kept some of that soft fur up to a year old! And of course, the rough coat (long haired) guys will shed a lot more noticeably than the smooth!

EXCERSISE!!! LOL No, really, don't just feed him a special diet and expect it to work. It might, but you'll have alot more success if you combine diet with a brisk walk every day too. Most dog food brands carry a low fat option. Or try just cutting back on the amount you give him! Some dogs don't know when to stop!

i am looking for a outside dog for a hobby farm to guard chickens and just be a guard dog will they do good outside all the time i live in minnesota on the canada border so it doesnt get real hot but does get real cold here

Saint LOVE the cold, so that won't be a problem!!! Just make sure a young pup has a place to go, as they shouldn't be out in constant cold like that. But Saints are very easy-going, eager to please pooches. They can be a little lazy, especially the boys! I'd recommend getting a puppy so you can train him for exactly what you have in mind. Great Pyrenees, one of the Saints ancestors, make great guard dogs as well.
