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.

I have a 7 month old female St.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 min. protein content, glucosomine, condroitan, 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.

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. Bernard's 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.

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

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!

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.

It really depends on your specific Saint, and the breeder's lines. Some lines develop alot slower but are the biggest in the end. The general rule is well over 100 lbs by nine months, so figure, around 80 lbs at half a year.

This is probably too late if your Saint was pregnant when you asked the question, but here's how I've found. Some girls hide their pregnancy more than others. If she is a first time mother, her nipples will begin to swell noticeably for sure by 7 or 8 weeks. I can feel my girl's abdomens (gently) at around 4 - 5 weeks and usually tell pretty definitely where she's at, but that's come with 10 years of breeding. Unless she is only having 2 or 3 pups, she will eventually be bulging beyond doubt. But until the last week or two, you might just have to keep your fingers crossed and wait and see!

Ask your vet to check with a dermatologist. Our 7 year old Saint had the same problem, we thought it was fine until it broke open and bleed all over. Our vet checked with a dermatologist who said it's a common dermatology problem only related to Saints. Our baby has been on a lot of medication and it's healing beautifully. Our vet was mos concerned about where it had split open (just like yours). Apparently the area where it's split open can cause A LOT of major issues!! Please get your pup checked again, it's worth it!!

We took a St. Bernard in when she was 2. It was really hard at first because she must not have been socialized very well. She was extremely shy. She was very stubborn in her ways and chases cars as well. But, we love her and still have her. She is now 10 and was a great addition to our family!

When I send my new pups home at around 8 - 9 weeks, they are doing three meals a day. I would think by 14 they could be at two. I also free feed my adults. Saints can be prone to bloat, and one cause is eating too much too fast at one time. So if they can free feed, they just snack a little here and there through out the day. Feed them at head level!

Saint puppies are born almost black, and slowly get lighter as they grow. At 8 weeks their true colors are starting to come out, but you won't really know until he loses his puppy coat. If both parents were reddish/brown, good chance your baby will too.

Wow! That's a big question! I'd recommend you check out the SBCA website, get some good books on basic doggy care. I really liked Puppies For Dummies. Age makes a differnce. An 8 wk old puppy will need plenty of naps, good quality food 3 times a day, fresh water always available, and alot of love! As he gets older, you can do more socializing/training. Don't forget to keep him updated on his vaccinations.

We have worked with rescued Saints of all ages. I would change the food to a high protein puppy food like Nutro & add chicken broth & rice. For Pups not eating we make sure they get tons of exercise (to build muscle and increase appetite) & make a big production out of eating with lots of attention. I have hand fed them at times until they decided the food was worth eating. If nothing is medically wrong with the pup, we also pick up the food after 15-30min of time. The eating schedule is important to let them know "this is the only time to eat until morning". No snacks or treats just toys until the regain interest in food. Hope that helps.

Actually you should never EVER feed a Saint Bernard puppy food. Saint's go through stages where they are thin and blocky as they grow. It's absolutely vital that you protect their bones. Since they grow so fast it is not recommended that they be fed puppy food or any food with extremely high protein. Also be careful to guard their hips and do not let them jump in and out of trucks/ SUV's while under 2 years of age. Female Saint's are naturally smaller than males. Also, depending on your weather, many dogs slim down during summertime. I wouldn't worry about her weight unless it becomes a problem and you see that she is not eating her food. You should be able to feel her ribs, but not really see them. More than likely, she is in a growth spurt and will fill out nicely before you know it. Please, do some research on what to feed growing Saints. Even research what I've said. It's very important to protect their bones and their joints.

OMG!!! Seriously....Usually saints are not a owners first dog. You need experience of raising dogs...The saint is a breed of their own. They are so smart, majestic and loyal. A saint needs to be socialized and trained. Very crucial. Saints become attached to owners quickly and if something happens to owners a saint he will possibly die of a broken heart. To put a saint outside is horrible...The only thing you will get is CUJO. PLEASE reconsider this for they are a wonderful breed and owners will never know the great traits and benefits of having a saint in your family..

Yes you can but their coat won't grow back the right way, so I would recommend taking your saint to a groomer so as not to make the same mistake I did, Good Luck.

Only if you know how. If you cut it too short it won't come back properly or it will take a very long time and the debate is also out as to whether or not trimming them helps them stay cooler. Most people say trimming does NOT help them stay cooler, that their coat insulates them from the heat.

A puppies eyes are not fully formed when they are born. That is why they are born with closed eye lids. The iris has not developed and that accounts for a light colored eyes. This is normal. Saint Bernards do not all have mask, they have the unique black eyes (Panda), half mask and masks. Thanks for asking...I hope this helps.

Yes they should do fine together, we have a saint,a boxer and a german shepherd and they all sleep together,groom each other and play together, the biggest thing is to make sure their all fixed, because thats where you'll run into problems.

I brought my St. Bernard at 8 weeks, I had already had a 3 yr & 5yr Pomeranian, He grew up with them and they all play together and he is 140 lbs at 15 months and is very gentle with them!

Saints do well with any dogs and the newfoundland was bred with the original saint the short haired type to create a dog with a thicker coat to keep them warmer in the winter and we got the rough coat or long-haired type, but it didn't help because the snow would bead up in the coat and stick to the fur.

Make a red pepper paste and put in on the wood - once the pup smells it or licks it it will associate that with wood and he won't eat it anymore

Teach your st. bernard the command "leave it". This is very helpful and useful in situations like this.

We have been advised to wait till he is fixed, which will happen in 2 months time. We are not sure if we should get a dog that is close to his age, younger or more mature. Any advice would be helpful. :)

I would recommend a puppy. This is the less threatening to their dominance. I have had great success in introducing in puppies with my adult dogs. You have more of a chance of problems with an older dog. If you have a neutered male you can go with another male or a female. As long as you neuter the other male as well you should have no problems. I have had 6 dogs in the past all at the same time and within a year of eachother in age. I had 4 males, all neutered, and 2 females, spayed. I had more problems with the females then all 4 of the males. They ranged in size from a Shih Tzu to a German Shepherd. Good luck. Two dogs are alot of fun. They're like chips though. Once you have one you have to have more. ;)
