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.

Unless you are under the mentor-ship of a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder, it is best that you get your dogs spayed and neutered. If you are, then the first thing to do is to go to the vet. Your dogs at 2 years old should have gotten their OFA health clearances. After that, it is time to have your vet test your stud dogs sperm. As well as your bitch-dogs eggs. If he has bred to one female and there was no resulting pregnancy; then either your stud dog or your bitch-dog is infertile.

Are St Bernard's good in the car?

A car really isn't big enough for a St. Bernard. They are a very large breed of dog and should be transported in a truck (with a canopy and kennel) or a van (secured or in a kennel). If socialized to traveling in a vehicle early in life through positive reinforcement, then this breed ca be a great travel companion. As long as there are frequent water, pee and stretch their legs breaks. Remember, that anything not secured will become a projectile in a car accident. A 120 + pound dog is included on that list, so make sure your fur-baby is secured with a seat belt or in a crate. So both your fur-baby, yourself and any other passengers are all safe in case of an accident.

How do you get rid of the black tar in a St. Bernard's ears? Been to vet's many times for it. Clean his ears all the time. Need help.

That black tar inside your dogs ears is a mixture and dirt and ear wax. Most likely what is happening is that your dog has a lot of ear wax and when he rolls in the dirt/plays outdoors, he the dirt mixes with his ear wax. Cleaning his ears every 2nd - 3rd day and allowing them to dry once daily should help. It has helped with my dogs. You flip the ear inside out, so that the inside of his ears can air out. Do this when he is inside and possibly sleeping. Give it an hour or so and then let his ears naturally fall back into place. Other than cleaning them a couple times a week and letting them air dry, there isn't much you can do for a dog with a lot of ear wax.

Are Saint Bernard's great with kids?

The St. Bernard breed is great with children as long as they are socialized to them at an early age (puppy-hood). Obedience training is critical for this breed so that they know to listen to all members of the family. All interactions between a puppy/dog and a child (under 13) should be supervised at all times. An injury to a puppy/dog by a child (even by accident) can make a puppy/dog become distrustful of children or even not like children at all as an adult dog.
