Saint Bernewfie Breed Maintenance
The Saint Bernewfie, which has a thick, water-resistant coat that can be short or long, does shed a fair bit so will need brushing two or three times a week to keep looking good. These dogs have a tendency to get dirty and their coats attract things like burs which should be brushed out. They also drool everywhere so need someone who is not averse to mopping up after them. Even though they can get dirty and muddy, don’t bath them too often as it will will strip away necessary oils in their fur. The ears should also be checked for any bits of debris that may be caught and the teeth should be brushed regularly to prevent bad breath. The nails can be trimmed if they aren’t worn down naturally.
