Swiss Stock strives to produce versatile, agile Entlebuchers, balanced in both structure and temperament.
Swiss Stock Entlebuchers purpose is to breed healthy and well tempered dogs, that stay true to the breed standard and function. I strongly believe that our dogs should be versatile and agile, as they were originally an all purpose farm and herding dog. Proper structure is key to be able to do their job - or sports such as agility or flyball. Being versatile requires good structure and a stable temperament. I will continue to focus on temperament as well as proper structure in our breedings, while striving to maintain genetic diversity.
Liberty Run’s Echo From the Alps, or “Liesel” is our Foundation Dog and a true Entlebucher. Strong in body and spirit, she loves to be on the go. She has been through CEBA evaluations and praised for her structure and movement. Liesel finished her show career as an AKC Grand Champion, and also earned her Canine Good Citizen (CGC) and Trick Dog Novice (TKN). In addition to her AKC conformation titles, she achieved an International Championship (IABCA). In the performance arena, she has earned qualifying legs in scent work, and has enjoyed learning Flyball, Barn Hunt, and a little agility. She’s even had a try at herding a few times.
Liesel had one litter of pups in 2018, and from that litter is Alpine Echo von Swiss Stock, our “Echo.” Echo is a cheerful, energetic Entlebucher who loves being active and has a strong herding drive. She has a wonderful bounce in her step, and loves leaping through the woods. She is eager to work, and happy to greet most people with a wagging tail. She enjoys travel - especially if it leads to new places to sniff! When taking a break, she also loves to snuggle and recharge for her next adventure. Echo has dabbled in lots of sports/activities including agility, scent work, barn hunt, herding, fly ball, and conformation.
My goal is to stay in touch with all puppy homes throughout their entire lives, and even beyond. I believe it is important for breeders to maintain contact with their puppies, following along in their health and development. I encourage owners to participate in NEMDA to be a part of the North American Entlebucher community. I plan to be a resource for our families and help owners when needed.
