Saint Bernards take over the Lima Kennel Club showgrounds for the weekend

The Lima Kennel Club hosted a Saint Bernard Specialty Dog show on Sunday, and dog handlers were excited to show off their big lovable breed at the showgrounds. Elizabeth Salewsky, a professional dog handler says, “I grew up with this breed, and they are the most loving family dogs. When you have a litter of puppies, they’re so cute and then people think they stay cute, and they do. They always drool though, that’s our biggest thing and they have a lot of hair so it’s a lot of maintenance but the breed is just so loving and they just want to please their owners. It’s a great family dog.”
