Swiss farmers used the strong, compact Entlebucher Mountain Dog to herd cattle from pasture to pasture. Named after the village of Entlebuch where he originated, this high-energy, intelligent breed learns quickly. Loyal and protective, he most enjoys being close to his family. The Entlebucher requires ample exercise and does best when given a job to do. His smooth, shiny coat needs minimal grooming.
