Does the Entlebucher Mountain Dog breed like to roam on its own when alone?

We've had our Entlebucher for 8 months, he'll be a year in January. He doesn't really roam around when alone, he'll be looking for his family, like sitting at the door waiting for you to return. He is really a great dog, but be prepared for a wild ride, he's got more energy than any dog I have ever seen, but he adores his family and will do anything to get to them and protect them.
