Deworming is also very crucial for dogs especially and should not be taken lightly or worse skipped. Deworming medicines will cost you 500 INR to 1,000 INR at the highest.
On an average monthly expenses for your Saint Bernard’s vet visits will fall under 20,000 INR.
NEUTERING AND SPAYING EXPENSES
Even though you will be stopping them from reproducing and the process itself is very painful, you will also be protecting them from several diseases like heart problems and even cancer. This is the reason why neutering and spaying is often advised by breeders and vets for the betterment of the pup.
Neutering and spaying charges in India range from 8,000 INR to 15,000 INR at most.
GROOMING AND MAINTENANCE EXPENSES
It’s a known fact that the furry exterior along with floppy ears is one of their most prominent aspects.
Any dog parlor will charge you a good amount of 4,000 INR to 6,000 INR. Hair and skin care products alone will cost you around 2,000 INR to 3,000 INR.
Get ready to buy lots and lots of toys for your Saint Bernard pup. They are not a very active breed and because of their huge size and furry coat it is in their best interest if they stay in and okay with toys like balls, ropes and such.
Apart from these, you will also need a bed and kennel, bowls for food and water, high quality leash and chain and so on.
Trainers in India charge around 20,000 INR per month on average to train a Saint Bernard. Since this breed of dog is kind of primitive and extremely protective of their family to the point of attacking new people thinking they will harm the family. Because of this they need to be trained by a strong and firm hand. They are somewhat intelligent and good at following orders.
Walks can work really well as they love to be in the open space. Exercise is also important if you want to reduce and avoid the chances of obesity, thyroid problems and such.
They are not extremely active dogs but despite that can be called fit. Taking them out on walks and making them participate in weekly fitness activities will not only prevent bloating but also help them maintain their health. Not just that. They are extremely friendly dogs so make sure to always keep them accompanied and happy.
Unfortunately you cannot travel with your Saint Bernard on train as they do not permit pets. As a result, they will have to travel in a non air conditioned coach. Saint Bernards are highly susceptible to overheat and suffer from dehydration due to their double coat of fur that is meant to keep them warm in the harsh and frigid weather of Switzerland. Therefore leaving them alone in a hot and humid place for an extended period of time is a very bad idea.Airlines are the best way to travel with pets. But always put aside a hefty amount just for traveling with your pet when you are planning a trip.
Dogs hold the capability to be great companions and their loyal nature will ensure that they will stay with you until they leave permanently.But the love your dog gives you, it’s important to give that love back to them as well. Dogs need to feel love and affection as well. They need pats and work better when they’re given treats.
At the end of the day, it all depends on you, the owner, as well as your Saint Bernard equally.
