St. Bernard Temperment:
Saint Bernards are extremely gentle and friendly and very tolerant of children. Slow moving, patient, and obedient. Extremely loyal, this breed wants to please. Since this dog is so giant, be sure to socialize it very well at a young age with other people. It is highly intelligent and easy to train, however training should begin early, while the dog is still a manageable size. Teach this dog not to jump on humans starting at puppyhood. Bear in mind that an unruly dog of this size presents a problem for even a strong adult if it is to be exercised in public areas on a leash, so take control from the onset. The Saint Bernard is a good watchdog. Even its size is a good deterrent. They drool after they drink or eat. Be sure you remain the dog's pack leader. Dogs want nothing more than to know what is expected of them and the St Bernard is no exception. Allowing a dog of this size and magnitude to be unruly can be dangerous, and shows poor ownership skills.

theres always execptions to averages
as for st. bernards they tend to be lazy as adults and rowdy as puppies
Answer by Loki my springer!
The St Bernard will give the average litter of around four pups. There have been times where that number has in fact, been reached and passed but most Saints will not have past six in one go. Of course.. ALL puppies are naturally playful, even when it comes to the laziest of all, St Bernards.
Just as with any dog and aging, you can expect rising levels of dominance, sometimes aggression and even that little bit more Independence. As a Saint ages they tend to take a while to reach that mature adult stage. "Puppy hood" can last for up to around 2-3 YEARS in some dogs.
The St Bernard breed in particular is very loyal, loving and great clowns at times. You can expect a lot of joy when owning such dog. And I'm telling you now..it's well worth the DROOL.
