He's perfect, I'm so looking forward to watching him grow, you are SO lucky!
I would Google the type of group and location you'd like. It's amazing how much you can pull up from a simple search. Also it may be a decent way to begin looking for breeders.My wife and I have been wanting a really large St Bernard for more than several years now, since before we got our beloved golden. Our golden will be turning 7 this June 1st and I'm glad to say he is still in fantastic shape and health. My father used to breed great danes and we love large dogs. Our golden is a large male coming in at 92lbs and very lean, the guy is all size and muscle from lots of activity and good feed since we got him at 8 weeks.
We just moved into a very large house with a very open floor plan, giant fenced yard, and all tile/wood flooring, perfect for having 2 giant dogs and keeping them cool in the summer. We feel in just a couple months the time will be right to get a St Bernard puppy before our golden gets any older. I also happen to be working from home for the next 2 years so I can devote myself full-time to the training of the St Bernard as I did with our golden.
Are there any St Bernard forums just like this golden forum I can join to start reading up? I'm in central/southern CA and would like to find a great breeder where we can get the largest example of a male possible once fully grown. Timeline is flexible through the end of the year and I don't plan on ever showing him so I'm not worried about AKC registration. It's important to me he's had health screenings and comes from a very healthy breeding line, like my golden was. While we aren't concerned with "pick of the litter" since he will never be bred, we would like to have some choice when it comes to playing with the puppies to see if there is one in the litter that seems a good fit for us.
All comments/suggestions welcome. Thanks!!!
