The Entlebucher Mountain Dog Club of Great Britain is the best first point of contact if you are looking for a puppy from a responsible breeder in the UK. All Club breeders work to very high breeding standards including health testing, character testing and conformation to breed standard. The Club’s requirements are higher than those asked for by The Kennel Club and follow the pattern set by the Swiss breed club, which is the custodian of the breed worldwide.
If you are interested in being added to the puppy waiting list then please email the Entlebucher Mountain Dog Club of Great Britain on firstname.lastname@example.org The puppy waiting list is held centrally to ensure that everyone enthusiastic about this beautiful breed has a fair chance of obtaining a dog.
Owning an Entlebucher is a joy but also a serious commitment. Dogs can vary in energy levels from those requiring relatively little exercise to those who need a good hour a day of free running. Although they can live happily in the city, they are better suited to the countryside.
Adults weigh between 23 and 30kg and with their broad chests, developed for pulling carts, they can be very strong. They are also the most loyal and affectionate breed of dog I have ever met and like nothing more than to be close to their prime carer 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They need little grooming and tend to keep themselves very clean. They do shed twice a year and some brushing at those times will be beneficial.
They learn quickly and respond well to good training classes. They also love agility and any opportunity to work.
To learn more about the breed, please read the book that I have written which covers all aspects of the breed from its history to care and welfare. You can find it HERE
