A large breed, the Saint Bernard, is also great around kids. It requires just about the same daily care as the small and more medium dogs, but the size may be way too scary for a small child. That’s right the big one, the Saint Bernard. He too likes to be played with every day. Although the Saint Bernard is such a big dog they are still very loyal and affectionate. They must be well socialized with people and other dogs though, to prevent any fearfulness or aggression. Even though they are very playful a dog that size may be too big to be wrestling with a child. They have a very fast growth rate and weight, which means the child’s growth, will not keep up with the Saint Bernard’s! Proper food and exercise is required so an adult would be best to raise this breed of dog not a child. As far as their grooming, they do need to be groomed daily, but only given a bathe when necessary. That and their eyes require special attention to keep their eyes free from irritants. It’s hard for a young child to maintain their own health and grooming let alone for a dog that’s ten times bigger than they are.
