Temperament & Affection

Saint Berdoodles are very social and love to be at the center of attention. They crave human affection but also with a tendency to clumsiness. However, care should be taken early on to socialize and train them. They are no different from any other dog in this respect.

The St. Berdoodle will inherit intelligence from both its parents, the Poodle and Saint Bernard. From the loyal Saint Bernard side, they’ll also inherit a commitment to obey their owners which makes them an easy breed to train.

The St. Berdoodle is loyal, but with their attention-seeking nature they can also become destructive if neglected. Be sure to spend time with your dog and give them attention to avoid any anxiety or personality issues.
