The History Behind Our Hardworking Logo.
Since the early 1600s, the St. Bernard has been known as a powerful working dog, respected for its dependability, strength and intelligence. These characteristics, combined with the animal's unwavering determination, ingenuity and a strong sense of smell and direction, allowed the St. Bernard to be trained as a reliable snowstorm rescue dog, helping save thousands of lives throughout the centuries.

While the St. Bernard is no longer used as a rescue dog, its personality and capabilities accurately symbolize the Applied Underwriters brand: strong, dependable, intelligent and diligent.
