St. Bernards: Secrets of the St. Bernard Nobody Will Tell You

St. Bernard is one of the calmest dog breeds in the world. This dog breed is known for how friendly and gentle it is, despite its rather humongous size. Although they are cute and adorable, they are quite difficult to train, which is why we’ve created this article. Below you’ll find a list of the best methods to successfully train your St. Bernard.

1. Be calm

As long as you’re calm your St. Bernard will be calm as well. Don’t yell, don’t be angry, and whatever you do don’t scare your dog. St. Bernards tend to remember this behavior of yours, and even if you manage to train them, your relationship will never be the same again.

2. Scolding 

St. Bernards are basically some of the most loveable dog breeds in the world. They’re huge, which can be quite scary, but on the inside they’re basically Chihuahuas. This is why you shouldn’t be afraid to scold them when they do something naughty. St. Bernards tend to pee and poop a lot, and if you don’t show them that they’ve been bad by scolding them a little then they’ll never learn their lesson. Just don’t be too aggressive, be as calm and serious as possible.

3. Socialize with your pet

Make sure you speak a lot with your St. Bernard. This specific breed is very talkative, they like to talk with you and they like to be acknowledged by you. When you’re training them make sure you don’t pay attention to anything but them, otherwise they’ll get bored and they won’t learn anything at all.

When it comes to lunch time you should try to mix your dog’s food with a nutritional supplement. A little canned food, so it isn’t that dry. Make sure that you feed him three times a day until he’s 4 to 6 months old. Never allow your pet to become overweight. If your dog crosses that line then your St. Bernard will risk being exposed to a lot of diseases.

Also, as we’ve mentioned before, St. Bernards tend to pee and poop everywhere, so if you need any help cleaning it up you can just call us and ask for the Pet Waste Removal – Poop Scooper Service.
