    Hi everyone

    This looks like a great site. My family and I are very lucky owners of a lovely 18month old short haired St Bernard called Henry!

    Look forward to getting involved

    Hi Chris

    Great to see you here. We also have a young St Bernard puppy called Ruby. Ruby is just 4 months old and we have had her for 10 days. She is a wonderful dog to have around and she getting along well with my Newfie Barney. I am finding my feet over feeding her at the moment. There are some pictures on the forum that I posted yesterday.

    I look forward to hearing your experiences with Henry and comparing notes as Ruby grows up.
    Best wishes, Diana.

    Thanks all!

    Hi Diana, I don't claim to be an expert on St Bernards but happy to share any experiences we've had with you!

    I know when we first got Henry, once we'd had him vaccinated etc we were really keen to get him out to meet as many people and dogs as possible and also to train him some basic stuff. I basically really didn't want a badly behaved giant breed dog ruling our lives!

    He learnt really quick and although very playful, is generally well behaved. I have 3 kids and even the youngest (5yrs) can walk him on a lead without fear of him running off with her dragging behind!

    Chris

    Welcome to the forum,

    I am another St Bernard owner :)
    Are you planning on showing at all? I go to the shows every now and again and would be nice to see you there.

    Hi Chris
    I did the same as you with our Newfie Barney and I am now starting a training programme with Ruby. I agree with you that you do not need a badly behaved giant dog around, certainly not with children. Fortunately my children are grown up now; the youngest is 18 in April and happy to help.
