Temperament & Personality

Saint Berdoodle is a large breed and has a big and kind heart. Its large size does not make it a good fit for families with small children. Its natural social nature helps it to mingle well with other dogs and animals. They also love attention and will constantly move around the owner. However, they show their destructive side if left alone for a prolonged period.

The St Berdoodlre comes with a lot of patience and tends to avoid any provocation by anyone. These dogs are also known to have an adventurous side and will love to explore new things in life. Although seemingly calmed and non-aggressive, these dogs are also considered an excellent guard dog because of their tendency to bark whenever they come across an unfamiliar face.

Exercise

This breed needs regular rigorous walks to stay mentally and physically fit. Early leash training helps to avoid any kind of unruly behavior in the future. A large and bulky size also means that they do not have limitless energy in them making them unfit for any kind of agility sports. A well fenced-in yard will allow the dog to run freely when unleashed. They get tired quickly, so they need frequent breaks during their exercise routine.

Grooming

The entire grooming process depends upon the coat the dog inherits from its parents. If the St Berdoodle inherits the coat of the St Bernard, it needs regular brushing with a slicker brush, but if it inherits the coat of the Poodle, professional grooming once in a while is highly recommended.

Bathe them only once in a month, but this breed gets dirty and muddy easily, so bathe them accordingly. To avoid any infection, the ears and eyes of the dog need a weekly check-up. Two or three times of tooth brushing every week is essential to prevent any dental issues in the long run.

Health Problems

Some health issues like the Wobbler syndrome, Bloating, Willebrand's disease, Hip dysplasia, Distichiasis, Gastric torsion, Sebaceous Adenitis, Addison’s disease, Mitral Valve disease, Eye and ear infections, Entropion, Pyotraumatic Dermatitis, Diabetes, and Corneal Dystrophy can affect the St Berdoodle. Occasional tests for the Eyes, Hip area, Ears, and Heart will prevent the dog from getting various diseases.

Training

Because of their eagerness to please, these dogs are quite easy to train. As compared to other crossbreeds, the St Berdoodle needs lesser number of repetitions of instructions while it has its training. Patience, consistency, firmness, and proper guidance are the primary weapons for the trainer. Occasional praises and food rewards will accelerate their entire training process.

Feeding

An adult St Berdoodle needs four to six cups of dry kibbles to give it proper nourishment. A proper diet with meats and fishes will complete their nourishment needs. Because of their large size, these dogs also need a lot of water.
