Anonymous asked:
Would summers in Utah be too hot for the Entlebucher Mountain Dog?



I know that there are two Entlebucher BCOE breeders within Utah.


If you have an Entlebucher in a hot climate, you'll want to exercise the dog during cooler times of day, or in water (pool, lake, river, ocean). You'll also want to be sure the dog is in air conditioning during the heat of the day, and has lots of cool, fresh water to drink.

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



We've had our Entlebucher puppy 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.


Entlebuchers really want to be where their beloved people are. They are also quite trainable (with consistency and clarity on your part). However, they're also smart and curious, so if you leave a dog in an unfenced area for a long period of time, and the dog gets bored, the dog may go off to explore interesting things. However, overall, they will mostly be looking for you and trying to get to wherever you are. They will generally be found sitting on the other side of the door waiting for you. Unlike a hound or a hunting dog, they're not prone to running off. They have been called "velcro dogs" for how much they like to stick by your side.
