What a brilliant idea this man has! Training his Saint Bernard to drink from the bathroom sink. He wipes the chin of his dog after he drinks directly from the faucet. This man saves work for himself–not having to clean up the floor after his Bernie gets a drink, and toweling off his chin right away so he won’t drip water all over the place.
And the bathroom sink faucet is the perfect height for this Saint Bernard. This Bernie probably appreciates being able to drink at his eye level. There actually are drinking and eating bowls for larger dogs that are elevated from the floor so it’s more comfortable for them instead of needing to bend their neck to eat or drink.
Saint Bernard’s are friendly and welcoming. They are kind and careful with children, according to Dog Time. They would step carefully when they are around children.
What are St. Bernards like?
Because they are so big, it’s a good idea to start training them early, when their size is still manageable. You don’t want them dragging you when they are excited to greet someone. Use a happy and relaxed approach when training them. It’s also a good idea to socialize the puppy with puppy class, so they know how to react to strangers and dogs.
Even though Saint Bernard’s only need moderate amount of exercise, make sure they stay fit because more weight on their body can stress their joints. And this is not a breed that tolerates heat. Avoid walking them in the heat of day. And if they are outside, make sure they have access to shade and cool water. Saint Bernard’s get along with other pets, especially if they’ve known each other since they are puppies. If they are around smaller dogs and cats, do supervise because this large dog can accidentally step or lie on the little friends. You can read more about Saint Bernard’s here.
