Saint Bernard Dogs Breeding

in Les Houches
Presentation

There are less than 500 short haired Saint Bernard in France. The dog breeding in Les Houches is the largest in the Alps.

These dogs were first of all raised as guard dogs. Then, in the 18th century, the Grand Saint Bernard monks raised them to be search and rescue dogs for lost travellers.

You will discover this noble breed of dog with Jean-Pierre and René Dumont through a guided visit of an hour.

Good to know! The Saint Bernard dog breeding takes care of your dog when you're on holidays. All breed accepted.
