Hi team ...I have 2 month old Saint Bernard puppy. All is fine with him. My question is, my puppy always spills the water from his bowl and then goes and lies in it, also when he drinks water he puts his mouth in it and rests . And because of this, his neck is always wet. How do I stop it? I also tried wiping him off as soon as he drinks not much of help. Need help. Azam India.

Your st bernard pup is still very young. Our's used to lay down to eat his food,knocking his bowl over. He grew out of it. Now the only mess he makes is when he shakes his head and the drool flies. :)

You have an super brainy saint! The reason why he lies in water is because he is hot. Mine is 18 months old...he goes and looks for a snowy patch in my garden to sleep on. Keep him in a cool environment. They are not meant to be raised in hot/humid/warm climatic can lead to multiple organ failure in them.

I have a 11 month old St Bernard, he used to do the same thing when he was younger, but he still loves water, we put a kiddie pool out in the summer and he loves jumping in and out of it and now I put a Large bucket out for his water bowl and he cannot dump it! But he does not like to stay out in the heat very long if hes not playing in water, He loves the air conditioner! Have fun!

Saints will do anything to stay cool. My male won't even sleep on a bed if there is a cool hard floor around.
