I have never had a saint bernard but I have never met a bad one. We have a friend with one, big baby, sweet and funny. When I was a kid our neigbor had one, that dog was sweet and friendly, great with all of us kids and got along with our dogs. One time we took in a stray saint bernard until we found him a home. Again, he was great with my kids and our dog and was such a sweetie. They are large dogs. But are very good natured.

they do shed, but it can be managed with daily brushing. They have a tendency to slobber, especially after drinking water. They are very good with kids and usually other animals (especially if introduced as a puppy). I have heard they are usually a very bright dog and like learning new things. This is just my personal experience with one Saint Bernard so the drooling and shedding may not pertain to every Saint out there.

shed a lot, can reach 200 pounds, extremely gentle and great with kids. should have a great temperament and show no signs of aggression, remember...they were bred to save human lives, not defend them against other humans or animals.

We (my moms) have a St. Bernard. He's a big baby. He probably weighs about 100 lbs. He's a little dominant of some other males, but it's because she hasn't had him neutered yet. She likes to wait untill they are over a year old. Anyways, he drools a lot (i don't like). But over all he is a really sweet, laid back dog. He will bark at a stranger sometimes, but not usually. He gets along with other dogs for the most part. Once he's neutered there won't be any more "guys scuffles."

I wouldn't want one, but they are nice animals. I just don't like all the drooling and I'm not partial to big dogs.

My husband and I ALMOST got a Saint, so I researched the breed a lot and even met with a top breeder to learn more about them. They are very sweet and usually lazy dogs. They are terrific with children, but need to be trained and socialized a LOT from a young age to prevent shyness etc. They have two coat types...smooth and rough. Both are nice and about equal to maintain. Just remember, they drool a TON and don't let anyone tell you that they breed "dry mouth" saints....simply untrue, or they are breeding the incorrect head type into their dogs. Hope some of this helped!

I'd love to have one. They're very sweet, they're kind of like big, lazy labs.

AKA gentle giants.
