This edition of The Complete Saint Bernard is a major revision of the original book written by Milo Denlinger and others, and published in 1952. The historical portions remain substantially unchanged. Discussion of the breed as it exists today has been almost entirely revised, in order to keep pace with the increasing number of Saint Bernard fanciers, and with the widespread improvement they have created in the individual representatives of the breed.

Since the Saint Bernard was first recognized as a breed, there have been good, and great, representatives thereof. Along with the good ones, there have been many of the not so good. A breed so large, magnificent, surrounded by legend and beset by press agentry, true and untrue, and endowed with a size which magnifies every virtue and fault out of all proportion, is bound to have had trouble in achieving a definition as to what constitutes a good Saint Bernard.

This difficulty is now approaching resolution. Though it is neither cheap nor easy to have a Saint Bernard around the house, in the sense that it is neither cheap nor easy to have a wife, husband, son or daughter, the Saint has become a member of the family, a task for which he is well equipped.

During the past few years, Saint Bernard breeders and owners have grasped the vision of the ultimate dog, as big as canine structure will permit, as heavy of bone and body as his work requires, as gentle and yet indestructible as we hope all the members of our family will be.

We thank all Saint Bernard breeders and owners who have contributed to the support of this growing vision.
