The Saint Bernard of the month
In this section, entitled "The Saint Bernard of the month", we aim to give you a better understanding of our dogs. In July, it’s short-haired bitch "Cheyenne du Grand St. Bernard" who will introduce herself:
My name is Cheyenne and I was born on 13 July 2011. I am the daughter of Kosima and the granddaughter of Azur. With a height at the withers of 66 cm, I weigh in at 48 kg, making me the smallest bitch in the pack at the breeding kennels of the Great Saint Bernard. On account of my size, and thanks to my friendly and sociable nature, I take part in every single youth camp.
I am very fond of children and camp life, and enjoy the attention and caresses of the children. Whenever children arrive, I can hardly wait to be able to greet them as soon as they get out of the car. Playing with them and cuddling up to them makes me particularly happy. Every time a child comes and snuggles down on the dog bed, I give myself and the children a special treat: I take a leap and land on the bed right next to them.
The animal keepers are always teaching me new tricks. They say I'm very good at them. I am even allowed to attend various events to perform the tricks I have learned. That always earns me extra praise, strokes and dog treats from the animal keeper, and I am rewarded by the astonishment and applause of visitors.
Although I am not allowed to breed because of my hip, I do take on the role of aunty every now and again. I look after puppies so that they can learn to spend time away from their mother, giving her a chance to have a rest at the same time. I bring a great deal of joy into the lives of many children and young people.
Would you like to find out more about me and my experiences, and meet me in person? I look forward to seeing you!
