Thank you for your interest in Entlebuchers!
We have listed breeders who promise to accept and to follow NEMDA’s Breeder Code of Ethics (BCOE). All these breeders welcome your inquiries. Please feel free to contact them directly about their Entlebucher breeding programs.
NEMDA does not recommend any breeder of Entlebuchers who is not a BCOE Breeder. Be cautious when entering into a contract with a breeder who is not on this list. Ask questions! Ask lots of questions! Do your best to inquire about health testing, health issues, temperament flaws, and breeding programs. It is perfectly okay for you to request pedigrees for both the dam and the sire of the litter. Always ask for copies of documented health tests.
At a minimum, both of the Entlebucher puppy parents should be listed in the OFA Health Database. Each parent should have a Canine Health Information Center (CHIC) number.
For more information please, contact the NEMDA Breed Committee.

CHIC Logo Color: Dogs that have participated in the CHIC program are identified using the CHIC logo. The color of the logo indicates if the dog is current in all required testing. Certain testing requirements must be repeated to remain current. The Eye exam is considered valid for 12 months. If one or more of the required tests is older than the valid time frame, then the CHIC icon is still shown, but in grey instead of color.
