  1. Nice post Abhishek.. I have a saint Bernard (His name is Titan) at my home, his huge size makes me scared.. His behavior is kinda neutral towards me, he neither barks at me nor ever come near to me.. What does it means?? He likes me or not?

    1. Hi Anjali, Dogs can smell apprehension, please let go of fear 🙂 Bernard(s) despite their size are very friendly hence the title Saint. Try to take it slow, bond with him by being the one who gives him food, takes him out for walks and I’m sure you’ll make great friends with him. All the best!
