Entlebucher Mountain Dog Information

Entlebucher Mountain DogThis small, quick mountain dog is an enthusiastic, confident pet. One of the four breeds of mountain dogs developed by Swiss herders, the Entlebucher Mountain Dog features the striking tri-color coat these dogs are known for. They were bred to move cattle up and down the sloping hills of the region, and with this background, it’s no wonder the breed has exceptional agility and balance.

The Entlebucher Mountain Dog is a high energy breed who likes to herd things – including kids –  so if you have a home with children, this might not be the best dog for you.
