These 5 week old Saintberdoodle puppies are a little more energetic than purebred Saint Bernard Puppies.
They are a little smarter and very quick and keen to pick up on things, especially when a treat is involved.
The Saint Bernard is very intelligent as well, I just find that the Saintberdoodle is a little more intelligent, attentive and eager. That would be the intelligent side of the Poodle traits coming out in them.
They love attention and are very happy and playful, thoroughly enjoying being your big cuddly lap dog/Teddy Bear. Look out when they are full grown they will be heavy!
It is wonderful to have a large breed dog that sheds little, is hypo-allergenic (wavy/curly coats), does not drool, and has high intelligence. The Saintberdoodle is a large breed dog with just these qualities. What more could the large breed dog lover ask for.
However, they do require additional grooming because of their coat type. Frequent brushing and trips to the groomers to be pampered can be expected.
Now I know there is no dog that can be said to be one hundred percent hypoallergenic or that will never shed, but the idea of one that comes a little closer to this is what I really can appreciate.
Smaller Saintberdoodles are available for those who love the temperaments of the breed but not the larger size.
The Saintberdoodle has the temperament of both the Poodle and the gentle giant Saint Bernard, who are loyal family or companion dogs. They have non aggressive disposition but will alert their family of danger.
