Welcome to the Saint Bernard Club of America

I would like to welcome you to the website of the Saint Bernard Club of America. The website has much to offer pertaining to the Saint Bernard.
• The Standard is a detailed description of the “perfect” Saint
• There is information on the history of the Breed
• Information on rescue is also available
• We now even have a video for judges and fanciers of the Saint Bernard
• There are also links for more saintly information
There are local Saint Bernard Specialty Clubs in many areas of the Country having activities with Saints.
Any of our officers, board members, or committee chairs will be glad to speak or email you about our wonderful breed.

Thanks for your interest in the Breed,
Carole Wilson, President



The SBCA Board along with the Education Committee has created a beautiful video that enhances the SBCA Illustrated Commentary book that has been the mainstay of the National Club for many years.

Judges: This video can be first on your viewing list for a quick refresher before heading to your next Judging assignment.

Exhibitors, Enthusiasts and New Owners: No matter what event you choose to participate in, see what features and characteristics make your dog or potential new puppy a quality dog.
