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.
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.

Does your Saint Bernard - St. Bernard bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Saint Bernard - St. Bernard puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I have Saint Bernard - St. Bernard puppies for sale! See My Profile
At Ru-Ridge Farms we raise quality AKC Newfoundlands. We have bred Saint Bernards for 12 years and recently switched breeds to Newfoundlands. With our 5 kids we raise high quality registered Holsteins, show cattle and horses and farm 380 acres. We believe farm and family raised puppies are the best family dogs. All pups will be guaranteed against any genetic defects for 2 years. Parents are both OFA hip and heart certified. Sire is double registered, AKC and APA. All puppies will be current on vaccinations and worming, as well as micro chipped for their safety. Pups will be placed with approved homes only. We do require a contract to protect ourselves and our buyers as well as our puppies. We ask that any puppy or dog that ever needs to be rehomed for any reason is reported to us first so that we may possibly prevent them from ever becoming shelter animals. Many, many references available.

I have a St. Bernard/Great Pyrenees male puppy. I'm training him to be my companion dog. At what age should he be neutered?

1 Comment


You should wait until your dog is 1 year of age before he is neutered. He needs his testicles that produce a growth hormone so that his bone density is as good as it can be by the time he is neutered.

I'm looking to adopt a Saint Bernard, but I need help with a few things. 1) Is Pedigree a good brand for food? 2) How would California's summer affect it with all the heat? 3) What should I do while I'm at school? 4) How expensive are the veterinary costs? 5) On a scale 1-10, 10 being terrible 1 being not a problem. How bad do they shed?
Thank you!!!



From your questions, I can tell you have not done much if any research on the breed and have not spent enough time with the breed itself face to face. I would highly suggest spending time with this breed before considering adopting a dog. 1) No, Pedigree is not a good brand of food at all, it is one of the worst. A high quality, grain-free dog food is the best food to feed your dog. Bags will cost an average of $65.00 - $85.00 per bag.


2) California's summer's will be very hard on this breed, they will need to be inside with A.C at all times and exercised in the evening/early morning so they do not overheat. 3) If you are in school, then you do not have the time for a dog right now. Focus on your studies and when you have a job with a schedule that allows you to go home and let your dog out to do its business. 5) The bigger the dog, the bigger the vet costs. St. Bernard's are huge dogs and vet costs will be between 2-3x more compared to an average sized dog such as Golden Retriever. 5) The Saint Bernard sheds a lot of hair, I would consider them no less then an 8 on that scale depending on if it is shedding season or not.

I have a 7-month-old female Saint Bernard. When is the best time to spay her? I am so confused about what to feed her. I am currently feeding her Eukanuba large breed puppy because it had the lowest protein content, glucosamine, chondroitin, vitamin c and chicken meal. She is doing well but I am not sure this is the best option. Any suggestions? And when should I switch her to adult food?



First off, take your dog off the Eukanuba right now! She should be on a grain-free, large breed puppy food. Acana, Orijen, Taste of the Wild, Merrick all have grain-free, large breed puppy foods that are the best thing for your dog. Secondly, you do not want to spay her until she is at least a year old, but I would wait until 12 - 14 months. Giant breed dogs need to be kept intact until they are at least a year old so that their bodies can use the hormones that come from their sexual organs for as long as possible before being spayed or neutered. You can switch her to adult food at a year and a half old.


We just lost our 11-1/2 year old St. Bernard, Riley, to a degenerative neurological disorder. Needless to say, I am absolutely heartbroken. But he lived longer than the typical St. Bernard, which we credit to feeding him NutriSource grain free dog food. Also, the supplements in dog food, such as glucosamine and chondroitin, are typically not in an amount that would be beneficial. You're better off with a separate supplement that your vet can recommend. Good luck with your baby!


I just lost my baby Bella. I'm heart broken. I have had several pets in the past, but Bella was always with me. It has been 3 weeks and still hate coming home at night and miss her very much, please tell me it will get better over time. I know someday I want another baby girl. This breed of dog is one of the most loving that you can ever have with kids. I think I'm having a harder time than them with the loss.

Anonymous asked:
Should Saint Bernards and Great Pyrenees be bred together? My Saint Bernard and Great Pyrenees have been mating for the past few days, should they be breed together?



For a short answer, no. You should not be allowing your two dogs to breed. They should be spayed and neutered. Unless you are a reputable, knowledgeable, and qualified breeder or aspiring to be one, you should not be breeding. The reason why there are so many breeds in the world is so that in truth, you do not have to mix breeds together. By doing so, you are allowing the over-population of dogs to continue to rise and you in-turn are now a Back Yard Breeder. Which is someone who does not care about the dogs they breed, they think their dogs are cute and so they will make cute puppies and make money off of it.


St. Bernards and Great Pyrenees are beautiful dogs and because they are giant breed dogs, their breeding needs to be even more closely monitored because of health reasons. Unless your dogs are of impeccable breeding, have passed all health tests for the breed, have a great temperament and have titles in any/all of the categories: confirmation (showing), obedience, work and/or sport then your dog should not be bred. Since your dogs have been breeding, there is a very good chance that your female is pregnant. Taking her to the vet and getting an E-spay is the best thing. She will be fixed and you can bring our male in to get fixed as well.


Thank you all for your answers. I took them to the vet today and found out that my female dog was incapable of having puppies. As for the male, I have set up an appointment for him to be neutered.


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.

Anonymous asked:
Do St. Bernards ever attack? I know St. Bernards are big so just want to make sure, any answers?



Any dog can attack. No matter the age, breed(s), or size. However, the St. Bernard is one of the breeds considered to be a gentle giant, but that does not mean that he/she can not become aggressive towards people/other dogs/other animals. A Saint 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' stars a St. Bernard that has rabies and attacks several people in the movie. Some people who 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 ASAP.


Saint Bernards are very protective of family. Bella was gentle but if threatened or a threat of harm made by a dog she would confront and stand her ground. She actually protected my young children from a German Shepard about to go after my children, stopped it cold. If you were nice to her no problem, but pose a threat and she gave you warning that she wasn't backing down. She was the social butterfly of the neighborhood and everyone loved her!
