SHORT HAIR (SMOOTH) SAINT BERNARDS ARE THE IDEAL DOG FOR SOUTH AFRICAN CONDITIONS.

• They adapt easily to their environment by growing a dense undercoat in winter which they quickly shed in the summer.

• They are ideal as house dogs since they shed less than long coated dogs.

• As with most Saint Bernards, they are fantastic dogs for children, due to their inherently calm and gentle nature.

• YOUNGSTEAD Short Hair Saint Bernards are bred from Imported Swiss bloodlines. They are strong healthy working dogs that are agile and show great endurance.

• Their short hair ensures easy maintenance of their coat in larger environments such as farms and natural gardens.

• They cause less irritation to people who are allergic to dog hair.

• Their natural protective instinct together with their formidable size makes them excellent guard dogs, which was part of their original function.
