Like all dog breeds within the AKC’s Herding Group, the Entlebucher Mountain Dog has an instinctive ability to control the movements, or 'gather', other animals. Originally bred to protect or herd livestock, the Entlebucher Mountain Dog is a breed that used to run non-stop for most of the day. However, changes to the Entlebucher Mountain Dog in modern-day society leave the breed less active than in years past. We'd recommend the Entlebucher Mountain Dog a high-protein dog food to help the dog manage their weight and still provide them plenty of protein for their naturally active lifestyle.

The Entlebucher Mountain Dog is considered a highly active dog and thus your Entlebucher Mountain Dog could benefit from a high-protein dog food due to that simple fact alone. A dog food rich in high-protein helps to build muscle and support the energy levels of a highly active Entlebucher Mountain Dog. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a highly active dog like the Entlebucher Mountain Dog. In fact, dogs that don't receive enough protein can actually experience muscle loss and see a noticeable drop in energy levels. Lastly, a high-protein dog food that's optimal for the Entlebucher Mountain Dog is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a highly active Entlebucher Mountain Dog.
