Saint Bernard Breed Profile








Shoulder height: 24 – 30 inches. Weight: 110 – 220 pounds.

The Saint Bernard can have short and smooth hair or medium to long hair.

This dog breed is very friendly but also powerful and strong. They are gentle and love being around people.

Saint Bernards are great with children!

They should be brushed frequently and their eyes need to be kept clean.

Obedience training is highly recommended due to their size as adults.

They do best with small amounts of exercise throughout the day rather than extensive amounts of exercise at one time.
