Saint Bernards need early socialization to get along well with other dogs and pets. However, once they form a bond with another dog, they will be friends for life.
Saint Bernards are great family dogs - they are highly affectionate and loyal and will always look after their family. Many people get intimidated by a Saint Bernard’s size; however, this dog is really a gentle giant.
Saint Bernards cannot stay home alone for more than a couple of hours and need their human companions with them. If left alone, they are prone to suffering from separation anxiety.
Saint Bernards are not easy to groom. They need weekly brushing and regular combing to stay well-maintained.
Saint Bernards do not bark a lot until they notice a stranger approaching their house. They may sometimes also bark if they are in pain or feeling anxious.
