Books About Entlebuchers
Entlebuchers inspire their owners to do great things, and in 2018 not just one but four great books written by Entle owners about the breed came on the market.
‘Entlebucher Mountain Dogs – What i Wish I Knew‘ is my book about our experience raising Alfie and includes first hand insights into life with this energetic and loving breed, along with useful information and tips for people new to the breed. It’s available in Kindle, paperback and hardcover on Amazon.
I also pulled together Alfie’s most popular blogposts from his first year with us into a book. It’s called All the Mischief I Never Did and Other True Tails and is available in paperback and Kindle formats from Amazon, and other online book retailers.
Our Entle friend Rosemary wrote her book ‘The Complete Entlebucher Mountain Dog Book‘, and it’s a thorough introduction to the breed along with tips for breeders.
And finally, Kimberly Manuelides wrote ‘Getting Home: For Some Dogs, It Just Isn’t Easy’. It tells the true tale of Entlebuchers Skeeter and Mikey, who hours before they are scheduled to be euthanized, deemed dangerous and “fear aggressive” by animal control, are miraculously saved by a shelter almost a thousand miles away.
