Welcome Dog Lovers!
Join in adventures with our crazy Entlebucher Mountain Dogs! We are passionate about this breed that has stolen our hearts!
Antea was born September 26, 2016 to Rodevachu Kennel. She proudly joins our family being given the Star Trek: Beyond name~ Jaylah!
We searched 2+ years with the dream of finding a quality bred female to import having the great potential of possessing the Entlebucher qualities we feel most strongly about. We hope Jaylah will boldly go... to carry forward our next generation of ExcelEnts!
Data earned his Master FAST (MXF) title at the Timber Ridge Obedience Club agility trial November 12, 2016 under judge Laura English! We also earned our 1st Triple Q & PERFECT weekend going 5/5 with 4 placements!
Data is still the only Entlebucher to hold dual Championship titles (MACH & CH)! Love this amazing dog!!
Team Kai earned their Master Century Jumper (MJC) title December 3, 2016 in Oshkosh under judge Rod Ramsell.
Kai/Patrick took 3rd place overall in the 16" class at the 2016 AKC Agility Invitationals December 18, 2016 in Orlando Florida! Kai is now the highest placing Entlebucher in a National event, earning a place in the AKC record books!

Gone to the Dogs
Welcome! We're the MacK-9's. Our current family consists of 2 footers (Patrick and Joyce) and 4 footers (the furry Entlebuchers kids and a token terrier). We chose not to have human children instead, welcoming furry canine kids and foster pups into our lives. You could say our lives have gone to the dogs ~ and we couldn’t be happier!
We love Entlebuchers also known as Entlebuch Cattle Dogs, Entlebucher Mountain Dogs and Entlebucher Sennenhunds. But they are not the right dog breed for everyone. Entlebuchers are full of zest for life and energy- a 24/7 party ready to happen. That can be a blessing or a curse depending on your level of activity and lifestyle. We strongly encourage anyone looking to add a furry family member to take time for thorough research; ask many questions and find local networking resources. We support both; quality breeders and responsible rescues. We have had great dogs from both sources!
Please favorite our site and visit often. We will make frequent changes and updates, just check the "last updated" date below and feel free to conatct us with any comments or feedback.
Due to the small gene pool in the U.S., we have been patiently networking with trusted European breeders for a few years. Our hope has been to import the right female to compliment our family with the possibility of breeding quality potential for the future. Our search has focused on litters or pairings that showed diversity, healthy pedigree lines, lower COI (coefficient of inbreeding), and the character traits we admire most of the breed. Finally, our desire was also to find a pup that would meet our standards of proven performance attributes and athleticism. We have a definite "type" we prefer personally, yet we can appreciate the beauty of most all Entle types. While we were busy making plans, divine intervention surprised us with the perfect MacKay addition, meet ~

ExcelEnts Entlebucher Kennel
Excellence is a quality that surpasses ordinary standards. We personally strive for excellence in everything we do! We've been passionate about dog sports and the sport of dogs for over two decades, so it made sense that our experience would evolve into a desire to further help and contribute to the betterment of this breed we are passionate about. We are dedicated to ongoing knowledge, education, and quality decisions as Entlebucher Mountain Dog breeders. We had hopes of breeding both our male and female but motherhood didn't work out for our female Kai so she remains with our family as a happy, spayed pet.
Our male Data passed all his breeding health and fitness tests. Data has received high praise from AKC and FCI Conformation judges, CEBA Conformation and Temperament judges, as well as a cross section of breed experts plus he is proven in a number of performance sport venues. As an Entlebucher stud, Data has sired 4 litters with a total of 22 offspring and has passed on many of the traits that are his best qualities. At just 2-1/2 yrs old Data had already earned 15 working titles plus his conformation Championship which inspired our Kennel name: ExcelEnts!
At ExcelEnts Kennel we combine our dedication to excellence with our love and commitment for the betterment of this beloved Swiss Mountain Dog! We believe in the 'TOTAL' Entlebucher- bred for health, moderate structure, great temperament, beauty and working ability! Our Entlebucher protégé will be capable of excelling in any area! An Entlebucher bred in connection with us will be truly versatile and able to do it all! This is not just talk or lip service, we are out in the real workd do-ing and proving our dog's abilities by testing their skills and aptitudes. We strongly believe in preserving and protecting the working functionality of the Entlebucher Mountain Dog. It is a dynamic process of balance encouraged within the breed standard. We do not support breeding extreme traits, spooky/fearful temperaments or exaggerated qualities.
