Saint Bernard Characteristics

One of the world's most recognizable breeds, the St. Bernard is in good company with the Great Dane and the Mastiff in the "Gentle Giant" category. These dogs are patient and affectionate "Nanny Dogs" who are exceedingly loyal and love spending time with their humans. Despite their size, these dogs also excel in certain obedience trials and make loyal companions.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Large
  • Trainability Willful

Known for rescuing injured or lost travelers in the Alps, the St. Bernard spends more time these days exploring backyards than mountain passages. Surprisingly, these large dogs are not a bad choice for an apartment companion, as they only require a medium amount of exercise, and that can be accomplished with a brisk daily walk. You're more likely to struggle with the notorious shedding and drooling from the St. Bernard, so be prepared to vacuum frequently.  These dogs are commonly seen with black mask markings and will require regular brushing
 
When temperatures rise, it’s best to keep these dogs inside.  Because these dogs were bred and raised in the Alps, they are not well acclimated to warm climates and can get heat exhaustion quite rapidly. Of course, this means they're keen to play in the snow all day if afforded the luxury. These dogs also take longer than most to mentally mature, so you get the joy of a 100+ pound puppy for longer than you might expect.  
 
Due to their size, these dogs are prone to a number of health issues, and they have relatively short lifespans. Ensuring that they have regular checkups with their vet and maintain a healthy weight are key factors towards the longevity of your St. Bernard.

How dog-friendly is Montana?

Montana is a great place for dogs, especially in the summer – with gorgeous outdoor space and plenty of room for adventure. 


The state ranks pretty consistently in the average range for overall pet-friendliness but has great strengths in animal welfare and dog-friendly attractions. 


We reviewed two significant studies that rank all 50 states by pet-friendly factors. The first, by animal advocacy group Pawsafe, ranked Montana as the 34th most pet-friendly state. 


The second, by consumer safety review site Safewise, ranked Montana quite low at 45th.


The state scored very well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards. However, because of its harsh winters, and less access to pet services in rural areas, Montana took a hit. 


Combining these two studies together put Montana towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
