Mountain Dog by Day, Blogger and Shop keeper by Night


I'm AlfieWoof! I’m Alfie and I am an Entlebucher  Mountain Dog who recently moved from London in the UK, to San Francisco in California. Thank you for checking out my blog! *wagging tail*

Sniff out some Highlights from my Blog

As a clever and very inquisitive youngster, I see it as my duty to train my humans in all things dog. I like to blog about anything that I’ve seen or sniffed that could help other doggies out there.

For example, I invented the sock game and set the rules for how to play it, providing puppies world wide with the support they need to steal socks at any time and in any location. I also give other dogs out there advice on how to keep their lazy humans active and away from the sofa, and have also come up with an instant slimming method for dogs. I’m a well travelled dog and have gone through the Eurotunnel to Holland, and flown from the UK to the US.

I love chasing sticks (or anything that gets thrown through the air!), but recently had a really scary experience with a sharp stick that sent me off to the vets so now I’m only allowed tennis balls and other soft, safe toys.

Sometimes I like to talk about Entlebucher Mountain Dog stuff too. As if all of this isn’t enough to keep any dog busy, I’ve also decided I want to be a shop keeper and I’ve opened my very own Entle Shop, where I sell some of my human’s Entlebucher Mountain dog designs printed on T-shirts, mugs and other gift items.

About Me, Alfie Entlebucher

My parents Queenie and Leon met and fell in love on a beautiful summer’s day in Switzerland. After a short romance, my mum travelled back home to Norwich and I was born in September 2010 at Norfolk Field’s Entlebuchers. I have four siblings called Annie, Aida, Archie and Ashton (who is now also called Alfie).

When I was eight weeks old, my new humans came to collect me and drove me all the way to London. Then I spent the following year training them in all things dog, and you can read more about my first year here. Now I’m an adolescent,  curious puppy in a grown dog’s body, and I spend most of my time looking for trouble so I can blog about it!

The Team behind Alfie’s Blog

One of my humans is called Linda and she helps me type this blog. I wish I could have my own paw sized keyboard, but until someone invents that we’re working as a pretty good canine-human editorial team. Most of the time I come up with all the stories myself, there is always something going on in the park or at home worth blogging about. Then, she helps me do the typing and take the photos.

My other human Jelte helps out with all the technical computer stuff involved in making my blog run smoothly. I tried doing all the computer things myself in the beginning, but I kept chewing all the cables so I had to delegate all of that to the humans (their teeth are less sharp than mine).

Stay in touch

I would love it if we could stay in touch! You could subscribe to my blog via RSS, or get it delivered straight to your inbox via email. I’m also woofing on Facebook, howling on Twitter and Google + sometimes.

I love hearing from my doggie friends and humans from all over the world and always wag my tail a little extra if you leave a comment on my blog. You can also email me and my humans on alfie (at)

Thanks to Ian Hutton Photography for taking the superb photos of me and my human on this page. He is not only good at taking photos, but always says yes to a good game of fetch too! *woof*
