Entlebucher Mountain Dogs are the smallest and rarest of the Swiss Mountain breeds. They are a herding breed and are among the elite athletes of the canine world. Entlebuchers make great dogs for individuals interested in companion sports such as Agility, Flyball, Obedience, Rally-O, Tracking, Freestyle, Herding, Carting etc; and/or those with the time, knowledge and commitment to early and consistent training. They require considerable exercise during  their entire lives. They are not happy as outdoor or kennel dogs. In order to flourish and reach their full potential they must spend their lives as house companions. I hope this site offers the information that will help you determine if the Entlebucher Mountain Dog is the breed for you.
