  • Overview

  • Entlebucher Mountain Dog (pronounced ENT-lee-boo-ker or ENTLEboo-ker) is the smallest of the four Swiss Mountain Dogs. They are also named Senneund, which means the herdsman’s dog. This breed is very faithful and loyal to his pet parents and always stays close to his human family. They are fast learners, but they keep their independent nature and like to make their own choices, especially when they feel that they are in charge. Entlebucher Mountain Dog is very loyal and can be very protective of his human family, and that’s why proper early training and socialization are very important to him. They are very suspicious and tend to bark loudly, which gives their biggest protective asset. They usually get along well with other dogs and animals, but on the other hand, they might try to herd other pets and even children. This breed has a high energy level; they require long daily walks or sometimes hiking time, and they also require mental exercises to challenge their minds. Entlebucher Mountain Dog’s size is between 16 and 21 inches, and it weighs about 45 to 65 pounds.
