In 1660, a hospice keeper found a tiny St. Bernard puppy at his doorstep and took him in as a pet. One day, the monk and his dog came upon a group of lost travelers. The little dog broke his fast with some brandy he found in the monk's satchel, then ran off to gather more men for them to follow so they could get help.

 

These dogs were imported to England in 1853, where they gained popularity with Queen Victoria, who owned several. Before that, they were listed with other draft dogs rather than as a distinct breed.

 

St. Bernard's' are noted for their enormous size and strength. They can also be stubborn, which is why early training and socialization are important.

Exercise Needs

Dogs, and even humans, need exercise, yet these dog breeds are just fine in a less active lifestyle. They are not huge fans of adrenaline rush rather they are fond of solitude.

Intensity

Gentle natured dogs are easy to handle.They are family dogs - best with kids, elderly and even other animals. Since, they are not loud and rowdy, they are a manageable company when you live in an apartment.

GROOMING YOUR SAINT BERNARD

Saint Bernards' have an undercoat and guard hair that keeps them protected from the extreme cold. Since they are heavy droolers, it's important to clean their neck and facial folds on a daily basis. Otherwise, they can become infected. During their seasonal shedding phase, expect your house to look like a snowstorm has just blown through!
