Hello Saint Bernard Fanciers.

As the president of the SBCA, let me be the first to welcome you to our new look, the Saint Bernard Club of America’s modern and updated new website.  Many thanks to Robert Carter for his tremendous piece of work all done on a volunteer basis. Also, let us thank Myra Wallis, our Website Liaison Chair for coordinating materials and information to help make our website complete and user friendly. I hope you will enjoy navigating it and discovering new and important aspects of our beloved breed through its use.




Joan Zielinski,

President, Saint Bernard Club of America

Our Material…

Information on this site is designed to promote the responsible and intelligent breeding and ownership of our giant breed. We all think of our own special Saints as beloved family companions whether they are snoozing at our feet, or active in a myriad of activities such as conformation exhibiting, obedience/rally, agility, carting,  weight pulls, service or therapy.

We encourage you…

Please contact any of our Breed Advisors, members of the SBCA Board, Committee Chairs or anyone on our Contact List at any time for more information. Our members strive to be true ambassadors for our breed and we are always available to help you. We also invite  you to sign up for email notifications as new material is added by simply filling out the form on this page. This site continues to be a work in progress. Please send any comments or suggestions as well as any errors you may encounter to Myra Wallis, Website Liaison, JJMWALLIS@AOL.COM
