St Bernard Insurance

Join other UK St Bernard owners to demand a fairer deal from pet insurance companies

About this group

These big dogs are loyal and affectionate, but, like other giant dogs, need proper training and socialising from a young age. This might have proven useful for the most famous of all St Bernards, Beethoven.

Speaking of star dogs, few are those who have had statues erected in their honour, but fewer still are the people who would dare to deny Barry the St Bernard his rightful place in this most honorable club. Because Barry did not merely lie around claiming to be a dog of the people – he was a dog who believed first and foremost in action. Barry is credited with rescuing no fewer than forty people from the treacherous St Bernard (mountain) Pass; from which the dogs take their name.

Today’s St Bernards no longer perform daring Alpine rescues: the last recorded instance of such was in 1955. They can sometimes be found happily competing in a number of dog sports, such as cart-pulling, which allows them to parade their formidable strength. But these great dogs are equally happy settling into the role of family friend and guardian.

It’s vitally important that St Bernards are given the right diet and proper exercise. This will help to mitigate problems that sometimes develop with their bones and joints, which occur because they grow to a large size – and grow very quickly. Hip and elbow dysplasia are not uncommon in this breed.

By joining this group you use the buying power you share with other St Bernard owners to get a better deal on insurance. Currently, there is an offer available with MORE TH>N, so please join the group to find out more.

    Hi Howard, yes our group is with More Than. Is that who you are currently insured with?

  • avatar for HowardHoward 1 year, 6 months ago

    no, i have been and still am insured with co op, and the only prob i have with them is that he wont be insured for death by illness bcoz hes a st bernard and is 5, he has been insured for everthing since we got him, and has no health probs, basically i need peace of mind to know whatever life throws at us we are covered Heidi thanx

    Hi Howard, I am just going to find out how More Than would approach this. Leave it with me, and I will come back to you! Kind regards, Heidi

  • avatar for HeidiHeidi (Bought By Many staff) 1 year, 6 months ago

    Hi Howard, More Than do cover death from illness for pets under 9. Ranging from £500-£2000 depending on the level of cover you purchase! Hope that helps. Kind regards, Heidi
