German Shepherd
The Saint Shepherd is a mix of the German Shepherd and the Saint Bernard. These are both large dogs so the Saint Shepherd is usually large or giant, standing about 28 inches tall and weighing about 120 pounds on average. This is a friendly and outgoing dog who loves children and other dogs but must be socialized when young. They may drool a lot like the Saint Bernard if they have the loose jowls but this is uncommon in this breed. They are usually easy to train and very obedient with a wonderfully laid-back personality. The Saint Shepherd is a great family pet and guard dog but does shed a lot so you will need to brush her often.

Saint Shepherd Breed History

The Saint Shepherd is still rare since it has not been around very long so you have to look at the backgrounds of the parent breeds, the German Shepherd and Saint Bernard. The German Shepherd originated in Germany in the late 19th century as a working farm dog to herd and guard the livestock. They are fearless and loyal so they make excellent guard dogs for both the cattle and the family. The German Shepherd was developed by Max von Stephanitz, a captain in the German Calvary. He reportedly bred the German Shepherd from local shepherd breeds with different varieties of hair. Besides working on farms, they were used to deliver supplies to the military during WWI and became greatly respected due to their courage and bravery. The German Shepherd was originally named the German Sheepdog and was changed to Shepherd by the American Kennel Club when they were officially accepted in 1908. The German Shepherd Dog Club of America was born in 1913 by Anne Tracy and Ben Throop in Connecticut and the breed is still the 2nd most common dog breed in the United States. Originally from Switzerland, the Saint Bernard has been guarding and rescuing people since 980 A.D. They are thought to be bred from the Great Pyrenees, Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, Great Dane, and the Tibetan Mastiff. According to the legends, the breed started out in the Swiss Alps and were named after their founder, Saint Bernard de Menthon. Switzerland hospitals used these giant dogs to assist people who were travelling through dangerous Alpine areas between Italy and Switzerland. They were also used to rescue victims of avalanches and other disasters because of their uncanny ability to smell a person buried underneath the snow. The dogs worked in teams and when a victim was found, one dog would stay with them and keep them warm while the other would go get help. One famous Saint Bernard, Barry, was known for saving over 40 victims between 1800 and 1810. They were accepted by the American Kennel Club in 1885 where they are the 49th most well-liked dog in America. 

Saint Shepherd Breed Appearance

The Saint Shepherd is a large to giant breed that may get up to 150 pounds with a massive head, floppy ears, dark brown oval eyes, and a short to medium muzzle with a black nose. They have a thick and well-muscled body with strong legs, a straight back, large feet, and arched toes. Their face is usually dark brown or black while the rest of them is either white, brown, and black; white and brown; or black and brown. The Saint Shepherd has a thick double coat that keeps them warm in cold weather but can cause overheating when it gets hot outside.

Saint Shepherd Breed Maintenance

You will need to use a pin brush or hard bristle brush and metal comb on your Saint Shepherd at least four or five times a week. They have a thick double coat that can get matted so you have to be sure to brush them often. Also, if you do not brush them often enough, you may end up with more hair on your furniture than on your dog. They only need to be bathed once a month or so and bathing them more often can cause them to have dry skin and irritation. You should also trim your Saint Shepherd’s nails when needed so they do not split. Her teeth need care as well; brush them as often as you can but at the very least, three times a week.

Saint Shepherd Temperament

This gentle giant has the looks of a guard dog and can be trained to protect the family but they are typically very well behaved and loving. With their Saint Bernard temperament, they enjoy playing with everyone and are good caregivers as well. However, they are large dogs so you have to watch them with little children to avoid accidents. You can train them quite easily to do just about anything due to their quick learning and intelligence. They are diligent and obedient with the desire to please their humans. If you do happen to get a stubborn dog, just be consistent and patient and she will eventually come around to your way of thinking.

Saint Shepherd Activity Requirements

The Saint Shepherd has a tendency to become overweight if they do not get enough exercise so you should take them out for a walk once or twice a day and let them run around in a fenced area for a couple hours as well. They typically need about 60 to 90 minutes of vigorous activity on a daily basis to stay mentally and physically sharp. Without enough exercise, they can also become bored or anxious and develop bad habits like excessive barking or aggression. Some good activities for your Saint Shepherd include swimming, hiking, obedience and agility training, playing fetch, and playing with other dogs at the dog park.

Gus was easily trained as a puppy and even as recently as last year. He caught on to a trick after 3 tries. He is so smart that he knows when to engage in shenanigans quickly without being caught in the moment. He's great with our cats and very patient with children of all ages. 2 years ago, he was diagnosed with a type of sarcoma that we caught early. Just recently he has had difficulty walking. We're awaiting radiology results, but fear the worst for his right hip and shoulder.

Everyone one who meets him loves him and he loves them! Only health issue is his skin. May not be specific to the breed, but he has very sensitive skin and we have to watch for hot spots.

We got our little guy about three weeks ago. When we first brought him home, we didn't realize how clueless we were about keeping a puppy. Harbard became the dominant energy very quickly, but we began watching Dog Whisperer and learning how to help our dog be a dog, things have turned around in a VERY swift manner. He is listening, he is understanding our energy, we are claiming our space, and he has just improved by leaps and bounds. Draining his energy his definitely how we keep him calm. We go out for a 45 minute walk every morning and a 30 minute walk before bed with about 2 hrs total of play each day. These are dogs that need that verification, and conversation from their handlers. After that, you're golden. We love our Harbard and we are so proud of the relationship we are cultivating as Pack Leaders <3

Luckily, animal control found the and was able to save them! he was very skinny when I adopted him but put on weight fast. He has always been a cuddlebug and loves to be in your lap, though he can barely fit these days! he weighs about 120 lbs and is tall enough to sneak a bite off the dining table. He loves going on walks and drives in the car, and is pretty high energy for a large dog. He is great with learning tricks and is a good listener. Best dog I've ever had!

He throws up in the car, & is always always acting like he’s hungry. He protects the momma but still gets nervous himself. Doesn’t like being alone at all, follows momma everywhere. Was difficult to potty train, and still have an accident here and there when nervous. Weary of strangers and hates the vet. Great with 3 kids under 10. Great with other dogs, especially the Great Dane next door. Loves cuddles, wrestling and zoomies in the yard.

He is high energy so lots of walks, going to off leash dog parks and loves running with the other dogs. He replaces my Red GoldenDoodle that I lost in a divorce. His name is a tribute to my brother whom I lost three years ago. My brother had all types if German Shepards and my brother loved Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

He is still very young (3 months) and not necessarily that heavy yet. We got him when he was 9 weeks old (13 pounds) and he has now grown to 26 pounds four weeks later. He is surprisingly energetic and also very intelligent. His paws, belly and end of tail is Snow White, besides that he has a beautiful dark tan color on the rest of his body except from his face, which is covered in a fully black mask contrasting his light brown eyes. His tail is super long, and resembles his fathers tail a lot (German shepherd). He is to no surprise the most amazing breed I have ever met in my life, and to my surprise, he is actually very obedient, which I didn’t think would be the case, since Saint Bernhardt are usually considered very stubborn👌

She's pretty calm but does love to play and likes lots of attention. I have a 3 year old and 1 year old and she's great around them. She respects their space and listens to commands. She is practically self potty trained. She was only an outside dog with previous owner but we have her inside and out, but she prefers to be inside. She definitely thinks she's a lap top. She's a big girl, bigger than I would have preferred in a dog, but we're lucky to have her.

We have had Sully since he was 6 weeks old and now he’s 11 months old. He is a very lazy dog who enjoys his naps and cuddling. He definitely thinks he’s a lap dog. He plays well with our Lab and our neighbors dogs. He enjoys terrorizing our cats. He is obsessed with food and drinking water. He hates swimming, running, walking, or really just any kind of exercise. He has a very laid back personality and is a sweetheart, however, he can be a bit of a guard dog as he doesn’t like unfamiliar people to come near our home but warms up to new people very quickly. Sully can be pretty stubborn but with consistency, can be trained to do new tricks. He loves his belly rubs and is jealous when his doggie sister gets pets instead of him. At 11 months, he weighs in at 105 lbs.

Our dog loves the water and is so friendly. She looks mainly like a German Shepherd. We got her when she was 6 months old. She was and is very stubborn, but is better about everything now except when she finds an animal to chase. She is fantastic with our kids, loves everyone, and will try to cuddle. She has not filled out at this point and you would not think she has any saint bernard in her, except we had her DNA run and she is indeed 50/50. She loves to swim and race through the creek and has endless amounts of energy.

Question

My saint shepherd is over excited when meeting new people or just any people coming in the house in general. He jumps up on them and nips at them he is still a 6 month old puppy. He is just really excited to see new people even (known)people, but naturally he's huge already and can seem intimidating how do I stop this.

Answer
I agree it is important we teach this due to his size. Be firm and ensure no one allows him to jump at any time, so he isn't getting mixed messages. Ask him to Sit when you pre empt he wants to jump and reward heavily with praise and a treat. He should soon realise that keeping all 4 paws on the ground is rewarding!

Seeking a particular breed (St Bernard cross with a German Shepard) for a lovely, caring family home. Have no idea where to look to buy/adopt a puppy of this specifically and was wondering if you could help? Had the same breed previously and FELL in love with the dog, however it did pass of old age recently. Kennel/toys etc still at home so would be very prepared for a new puppy asap!
