The “Entlebucher” is the smallest of the four Swiss Mountain and Cattle Dogs. He originates from Entlebuch, a valley in the region of the Cantons Lucerne and Bern. It is less popular and less known, than his bigger “brothers”, but neverthless very interesting, smart, lively and great looking dog. Used originally as farm dog, today´s “Entlebucher” can be used as versatile working dog or even family dog. On the picture is “Entlebucher” Fido of owner Helena Zacharova. 🙂

First weekend in February was exceptionally sunny, so it was only appropriate that I got to photograph Australian Cattle Dogs. What a pity, that we could not feel as warm as if in Australia, when on the photo session! My thanks to Nicole Friedenberg for allowing me to photograph her fantastic dogs. 🙂
