Entlefests and Entle-days are events that give Entlebucher owners a chance to meet up with other Entlebuchers in their community or region. Various activities are often provided including educational workshops, games, and potlucks. We invite all members to come share the fun – catch up with old friends and meet new ones.
PAST ENTLE DAYS – STORIES AND PHOTOS
Bay Area Entle-day
Bay Area Entle Day in San Jose. 33 people, 21 Entles and 2 other dogs attended. We enjoyed a confidence building course led by Marcia Smullen, a nose work demonstration and practice by Josette Kimes. Over lunch we had a nice sharing session. Lunch ended with a canine birthday “cake” brought by the Kimes’ in celebration of Royal Elsa’s October birthday.
Northwest Entle Gathering, Sequim, Washington
All built up an appetite walking to and from the beach and exploring it. It was time for a BBQ. All dogs patiently waited to be fed. This happened after the humans ate . Loves and hugs were given to the dogs while the meat was cooking. Luckily for the dogs, the humans did not eat all the hamburger meat or hot dogs. They became treats rewards for the games that followed- Sit and Wait, Stay-Food Toss Game, and The Sock Bandana Game.
On the following day, we drove to the nearby Dungeness River Levee. Unfortunately, most were not able to stay for this. For those who stayed, it was a pleasant walk along the the Levee that was bordered on one side by a Dairy. and the other side the Dungeness River. The dairy cows were grazing in the pastures. Upon spying the cows, some of the Entles were most interested in checking out these strange creatures and were a little frustrated that they were on leash.
All in all everyone had a good time. We all look forward to meeting again soon.
