Since Timberline Lodge was built in 1937, the tradition of having resident St. Bernards has lived on through the decades and is a favorite of our guests. The tradition continues to this day with Heidi and Bruno.
Oregon’s historic Timberline Lodge is a place of traditions. One such tradition continues with our two St. Bernards, Heidi and Bruno. Learn more about Timberline's beloved St. Bernards, iconic dogs for an iconic lodge.

Starting June 1, Bruno will be on a regular walking schedule. He'll be out and about at 10am, 12pm, and 2pm most Tuesdays through Saturdays.
Bruno spent the summer and early fall camping, swimming, and going on long walks to build up his endurance. Some of his walks were simply going up the mountain until we hit snow that he could play in. We’ve discovered he LOVES Plato Pet Treats, especially the salmon ones. Either he’s a quick learner, or these treats are the perfect motivator!
He’s settled into his job of greeting guests very well and does a thorough job of making sure he says hello to everyone when we head out of the office. He’s super excited about the new snow we’ve been getting lately so we’re in for some “active” snow play times this winter.
