Yes. Although they love to be with family children, their sheer size requires close attention. They would never harm a child but a huge paw or strong tail can accidentally knock over a child.
They seldom bark without good reason, making them good watchdogs and protectors of their family, but they should never be considered a watchdog.
Saint Bernards reach full growth at 2 years of age. For this reason you dont want your puppy jumping in and out of cars/trucks until their soft bones are at full growth at age 2.
Saint Bernards eat 6-12 cups of dog food a day. They should never be fed high protein puppy food only large breed puppy food to your puppy until age 2.
Saint Bernards are known as gentle giants with big hearts and friendly temperaments.
