Entlebucher Sennenhund

The Entlebucher Entlebucher Sennenhund is the smallest of the four Sennenhunds which is a dog type that includes four regional breeds. Pronounced as 'Ent-lay-boo-cur', these dogs are also known as Entlebucher Mountain Dog, Entlebucher Sennehund, Entelbuch Mountain Dog, Entlebuch Cattle Dog and Entlebucher. The name Sennenhund originated form the people called Senn who are herders in the Swiss Alps. Entlebucher is a municipality in the canton of Lucerne in Switzerland.

Historically, Swiss farmers have used the Entlebucher to herd cows and move them from pasture to pasture in the Alps. The dog's speed, agility and keen intelligence made them very useful for herding large animals such as horses and hogs.

This dog is lively, persistent, active, determined and self-assured. They are also loyal and very protective of their family who could be reserved when it comes to strangers. As a highly active breed, they are not for the inexperienced dog owner because they would require plenty of exercise. These dogs do best when they are given a job.
