When I search about caring of St. Bernard puppies, noticed one good article on internet.

1. Feed him right.

You should give your dog the best food he can get. Sometimes that means you should use home-made recipes, raw food, or top quality dog food like Blue.

2. Medical Care. Keep up with shots that your puppy needs. Make sure to go to the vet if anything looks wrong. Keep your house and yard clean to eliminate any diseases lurking about.


3. Socialize. Make sure your puppy meets gentle, vaccinated adult dogs so that he will be good with other dogs when he is older. Introduce him to all sorts of people (make sure they are gentle with the puppy) and have them pet your puppy and feed him treats.


4. Training. Make sure you train your puppy really well. Get a crate to put him in while you are gone and leave it open for him so he can go in it whenever he wants. NEVER put him in a crate because he did something wrong. It will only make him harder to put in his crate. (Which would be really bad because crates keep the dogs from chewing things up when you're not there.) Get a training book from the library or bookstore. Here are some ones I recommend:


Secrets of a Professional Dog Trainer - Adam Katz

How to Raise the Perfect Dog - Cesar Millan (The Dog Whisperer)
A New Owner's Guide to Saint Bernards - Betty-Anne Stenmark
