Appenzeller Mountain Dog

You may be familiar with the Greater Swiss and the Bernese Mountain dog, but did you know the Appenzeller Sennenhund or the Appenzeller Mountain dog is also part of that mountain family? The Appenzeller came from the Appenzell region of Switzerland. He is a medium sized herding and protecting working dog. The breed was recognized as its own breed in 1989. Today they are primarily companion dogs. They require socialization from an early age due to their size. Consistent training makes them great family dogs even for families with small children or other pets. The Appenzeller likes to be out and about. He enjoys agility, flyball and obedience competitions most. Families that spend time outdoors and playing sports are great matches for this breed. The Appenzeller is known for his tri-color coat and triangular ears that point down. They have a lifespan of 13 to 17 years. For more information, contact your North Suffolk, VA veterinary clinic.
