St Bernards make great family pets for those who have the space and time, they are protective, trustworthy and great with children. They can grow from 26″ to 36″ (66 to 91cm) tall, and can weigh on average of 110-200 pounds (50 to 91 kg).
With either a smooth coat or a rough coated, St Bernards come in a variety of colours red, brown and brindle and all come with white markings. Both coat types moult, but the smooth coated only needs brushing once a week, whereas the rough coat needs daily grooming as dead hair can clog the undercoat and form mats.
This giant breed does not adapt well to apartment living, it can be kennelled outside but would much prefer to be living inside with the family, however they are susceptible to overheating due to such a thick coat.
For such a large dog, St Bernards make excellent family pets, they are affectionate, loyal and gentle around children. They love to be involved in family activities, but would also quite happily curl up at their owners feet on quiet night.
