The Appenzeller Sennenhund is a tricolored, medium-sized herding breed with an almost square build. He makes a good driving, watch, guard, house, or farm dog since he is robust and agile. They are excellent at agility, obedience, herding, and search and rescue because of their adaptability and eagerness.
The Appenzeller Sennenhund, commonly known as the Appenzeller Mountain Dog or Appenzell Cattle Dog, is one of the four breeds of the Swiss Sennen type. He is vivacious, upbeat, assured, trustworthy, and brave. He is a decent watchdog who cannot be bought, but he is a little wary of strangers. The intelligence of the breed makes them excellent learners. He is not a good fit for apartment life because of his nature and demand for the activity.
