Saint Berdoodles combine the protective “nanny dog” instincts of Saint
Bernards and the intelligence of Poodles. Though they may look large and intimidating, they are sweet and gentle and interact well with kids.
However, because of their large size, you may still want to supervise them around small children, as they may hurt them by accident.

Saint Berdoodle temperament
People-oriented: Saint Berdoodles are social dogs who love interaction with people. In fact, they are so social that they can become clingy and overly-attached to their owners. If they are left alone, separation anxiety can set in and cause them to become destructive. Due to their large size, this can mean havoc!
Friendly: Saint Berdoodles are typically known for their friendly and sociable nature. They tend to be affectionate and enjoy spending time with their families and other people.
Adaptable: They are usually adaptable dogs that can adjust to different living environments, including apartments or houses with yards, as long as their exercise and mental stimulation needs are met.
Protective: Saint Bernards have earned the nickname “nanny dogs” because of their protective, responsible nature. Saint Berdoodles often inherit this trait. They are known to be protective of their families and sometimes demonstrate this by becoming territorial and wary of strangers. They can make good watchdogs.
Charming: Though they can be wary of strangers at times, Saint Berdoodles are charming and winning at heart. They make friends wherever they go!
Gentle: Though large, these dogs are gentle. They would never intentionally hurt a family member, but their large size can still make them dangerous to small children.
Easy-going: Laid back and tolerant, a Saint Berdoodle will do anything for you. They love to please!
It’s important to remember that individual Saint Berdoodles can vary in their temperament and behavior based on their specific lineage and upbringing. Early training and socialization are key to ensuring a well-behaved and well-adjusted Saint Berdoodle. Additionally, it’s advisable to research and choose a reputable breeder who prioritizes the health and temperament of their dogs to get a healthy and well-rounded puppy.
Saint Berdoodle Breed history
Like most designer dogs, it’s hard to pinpoint the exact time when people started crossing Poodles and Saint Bernards. It was probably during the designer dog craze of the 1980s.
However, though the Saint Berdoodle is a relatively new breed, we know more about its parent breeds.
Poodles were originally bred in Germany to be water retrievers. They are highly intelligent and hypoallergenic, which makes them a popular choice for cross-breeding.
Saint Bernards were developed in the Swiss Alps by monks to be rescue dogs. They were bred to have a “nanny dog” nature.
When breeders crossed these two breeds, they attempted to combine the intelligence of the Poodles with the loyal, protective nature of the Saint Bernard.
The result was a great family dog with an intelligent, loyal, sweet nature.
Saint Berdoodle Average size
Saint Berdoodles are on the larger end of the spectrum when it comes to size. They stand 15-30″ at the shoulder, and can weigh up to 170 lbs!
Average Saint Berdoodle lifespan
Saint Berdoodle usually live from 8-12 years.
Saint Berdoodle body features
This dog can look large and in charge! But the Saint Berdoodle’s fluffy coat can make it look a little less intimidating. Its coat can be more curly like a Poodles, or more straight like a Saint Bernard’s.
Coat colors often include gray and white, black and white, red and white, or brown and white. They often have dark spots around their amber eyes.
grooming Your Saint Berdoodle Puppy
Saint Berdoodle dogs are fairly low shedders, a trait they inherit from their
Poodle parents, and they are a fairly low-maintenance breed. Weekly brushing should suffice, especially if they take more after their curly Poodle parents.
Monthly bathing and regular checking of the ears are advised.
Keeping Your Saint Berdoodle Puppy Healthy
As a mixed breed, Saint Berdoodles are usually quite healthy. However, there are still some things you should watch out for:
- Bloat (or GDV) – Large dogs often suffer from this. Watch for signs of abdominal discomfort.
- Ear infections – Floppy ears don’t get good airflow, and can become infected. Check your dog’s ears regularly.
- Wobbler syndrome – Common in large dogs, this is a compression of the spinal cord and spinal nerves. Watch for signs of discomfort when your dog moves his head and neck.
Like all dog breeds, Saint Berdoodles are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues among dogs.
Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or potential lameness if not addressed.
One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from too much running on hard surfaces, especially when they are puppies.
Typical Saint Berdoodle Allergens
Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. These skin cells are shed by any animal, including humans.
Poodles are hypoallergenic, so your Saint Berdoodle may not bother your allergies. However, Saint Berdoodles are not technically classed as hypoallergenic.
If you have someone in your home with animal allergy concerns, it is good to consult your family physician.
