During the summer of 2008 I spent nine weeks caring for the Saint Bernard dogs of the Barry Foundation at the Great Saint Bernard Pass, during which time I exercised the dogs, cleaned the kennels, socialized the dogs with tourists and hikers and generally spent every day in the mountains with the dogs. The kennels at the Great Saint Bernard Pass had an average of three hundred visitors each day. Although I was surprised at the number of club officials and breeders from many countries, the majority of visitors were simply normal pet lovers, interested in interacting with the Saint Bernard dogs. It was during this time that I confirmed the simple truth that I’d already suspected about Saint Bernard dogs, and wrote this article.  Read the rest of the article by signing up for membership here.
