Appenzeller Mountain Dog Health Problems and Raising an Appenzeller Mountain Dog Puppy to be Healthy

Some health problems are genetic, which means inherited from parents. Genetic health issues are common in Appenzeller Mountain Dogs today because of unwise breeding practices. My book, Dog Quest: Find The Dog Of Your Dreams, shows you how to find an Appenzeller Mountain Dog puppy who is genetically healthy.
Other health problems are environmental – caused by the way you raise your dog.
