Saint Bernard Overview

The St.Bernard belongs to the giant dog breed section. They average in weight between 65 - 120 kg and between the 70-90cm height at the withers. Their coat can either be smooth or rough and is typically red in shade with a mahogany or white brindle, with black around their face and ears.

The St.Bernard is better known as the “Gentle Giant” as they’re very calm, gentle and extremely loving. Because of their size, they require continuous training and socialisation to prevent them from becoming naughty and overstepping boundaries. They’re prone to bark and strangers, so will need assertive training to prevent this from becoming an issue.
