Our Purpose

The National Entlebucher Mountain Dog Association (NEMDA), established in 1998, is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to be the guardian for the preservation of this unique dog breed. NEMDA serves the amazing Entlebucher Mountain Dog breed and their owners by promoting healthy and responsible breeding, monitoring the health and wellness of Entlebuchers, providing education on the breed standard, teaching and encouraging participation in training and activities for dog performance sports and conformation shows, and engaging socially with the Entlebucher community. The American Kennel Club (AKC) recognizes NEMDA as the official National Parent Breed Club of the Entlebucher Mountain Dog.

Spirited - Intelligent - Agile - Loyal

The Entlebucher Mountain Dog is the smallest representative of the four Swiss Mountain Dog breeds. Historically, they were an excellent herding dog, today the Entlebucher is first and foremost a lovable family dog. They are versatile, medium sized dogs who are fiercely loyal with huge personalities.

The Entlebucher is robust, extremely agile and strong, with bright, intelligent, friendly facial expressions. Their temperament is lively, joyful, spirited, confident, and fearless. Its medium size and its compact physique with a slightly elongated format and striking tri-color markings give it a strong and elegant appearance. Their double coat is short, hard, shiny, and easy to care for.
