The Appenzeller Sennenhunde is a purebred dog breed. Also known as the Appenzeller Mountain Dog or the Appenzell Cattle Dog, this doggo comes from Switzerland. However, it’s unknown when this breed was first developed, but they were used for herding, guarding, and pulling carts. Today, this pup is agile, versatile, and lively.

Where to get Appenzeller Sennenhunde Puppies

If you’re looking for this dog breed, you can try calling your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. They might have Appenzeller Sennenhunde puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption. It’s a great idea to start here because most of these dogs were abandoned or surrendered by their previous owners. So, they’re looking for good homes. Appenzeller…

Alternatively, you can go through a reputable breeder if you want a puppy and want to know where the dog came from. Luckily, you can begin your search for an ethical breeder on the AKC Marketplace. However, you can easily tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations
  • Want to meet with you in person and allow you to meet the parents and the puppies
  • Be able to answer any of your questions about the litter, the breed, the breeder and their work, or the adoption process
  • They’ll have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption

In addition, a good breeder will health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding to ensure that it’s safe and healthy. Then, they’ll get the puppies tested.

Also, an ethical breeder will allow the dogs to live in their home as part of the family. They won’t keep the dogs in kennels unless it’s for crate training. 

If you find a breeder who doesn’t do the above, they might be a backyard breeder or a puppy mill. These breeders should be avoided since they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding good homes for the puppies.

The Cost

The average cost of Appenzeller Sennenhunde puppies is between $600 and $1,500. However, the price may vary depending on the time of year, the breeder’s location, or the breed’s popularity. 

Appearance

Appenzeller Sunnenhunde puppies will grow to be medium to large-sized dogs. For example, they can grow about 19 to 22 inches tall and weigh between 48 and 70 pounds.

In addition, they have a short and smooth coat. You won’t find this doggo with many coat colors, though. They can only have a coat that’s black, brown & white.

Temperament

If you’re looking for a cuddly companion, this dog breed might not be the right choice for you. However, Appenzeller Sennenhunde puppies are loyal and affectionate with their family members. Also, they’re good around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people. They’re an average watchdog and will bark to alert you of anything.

This doggo can be tricky to train. First, they’ll need an experienced dog owner. So, you can hire a professional dog trainer to help you out.

Also, they have moderate energy levels. They’ll enjoy going on long walks or hikes with you. However, they won’t live well in an apartment and prefer a bigger house with a fenced-in yard. Hallon.se…

Appenzeller Sennenhunde Puppies – Veterinary Needs

Luckily, the Appenzeller Sennenhunde is a relatively healthy dog breed. However, you need to be mindful that they could have a sensitivity or allergy to anesthesia.

As with all dog breeds, you’ll want to bring them to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup. However, be sure to get them a few times for the first year. As a puppy, this will allow you to keep track of their growth and development. Also, you’ll be able to keep them up to date with their vaccinations.

With proper care, this dog breed has an average lifespan of about 12 to 14 years.

Diet

As long as the food is appropriate for your dog’s breed size, age, and weight, then you can feed them anything. Also, you’ll want your vet’s approval on the food. For instance, you can give them high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food.

Grooming

When it comes to grooming, this dog breed is low-maintenance. You can bathe them as needed at home or bring them to a professional grooming salon once in a while. However, it’s not necessary.

They do shed a moderate amount, so you’ll want to brush their coat at least once a week. In addition, be sure to keep up with trimming their nails, brushing their teeth, and cleaning their ears regularly.
