If there is such a thing as the typical Swiss dog, then it's the St. Bernard. This dog is known from film and TV, and, equipped with a neat little keg at its neck, it is known to have only one goal: to save human lives. In fact, the St. Bernard is above all the emblem of the region Saint-Bernard.
There this dog competes with huskies, and patiently pulls sleds. A very popular animal, especially with children!
