Lakeland Terrier Grooming and Breed Care

Lakeland Terrier Temperament

The Lakeland Terrier is a dog that is playful, full of energy, and can be very entertaining, with lots of enthusiasm and a love for life. He is a confident and courageous dog, but also has a very curious and inquisitive nature that can lead him into trouble, or even into danger. If you have a beautiful designed garden then be warned - these little terriers love to dig. These are also not the right choice for those that want a quiet life, as they demand plenty of activity, plenty of attention, and they can bark a lot. Alert and eager to please, the Lakeland Terrier is an intelligent dog and is quick to learn. However, training can be difficult because these dogs have a very independent and stubborn streak, making them best suited to those with some level of experience with handling and training dogs.

 

You will need to ensure that your Lakeland Terrier gets regular exercise, and that he has a safe and secured area in which to play. Although small, this bold terrier will stand up to any dog that wants to try his luck, and may also have a tendency to chase cats unless socialized early on. He should not be trusted with small creatures that run, as they could end up as lunch for your Lakeland Terrier. When it comes to strangers the Lakeland Terrier will usually be quite polite but wary. His tendency to bark and raise an alarm makes him an effective watchdog. He is generally good around gentle and considerate children. These dogs can make good companions and family pets for active people and families, but do need an owner that is confident, assertive, yet positive.

Lakeland Terrier Appearance

The Lakeland Terrier is a small but sturdy dog, with a distinctive beard and a wiry, hard coat. The coloring of the Lakeland Terrier can vary, and includes red, wheaten, blue, black, or liver. He has a square looking face and build, small, wide-set eyes, and a long muzzle. The weight of the Lakeland Terrier is around 14-20 pounds, and his height is around 13-15 inches.

Lakeland Terrier Grooming

The grooming requirements for the Lakeland Terrier can be quite high, so you will need to dedicate some time to looking after these dogs. You will need to ensure that his beard is brushed and cleaned on a daily basis for hygiene reasons, and you should also keep the hair around his bottom trimmed. His coat can be brushed once weekly, and pet owners can have the coat clipped every few months. For show dogs, the dead coat should be stripped every few months. Allergy sufferers may fare well with this breed, as the Lakeland Terrier is a low shedder if groomed properly.

Lakeland Terrier Health Problems and Life Expectancy

Although the Lakeland Terrier is generally a healthy and robust breed, there are a few health issues to look out for. This includes Legg-Perthes, elbow dysplasia, lens luxation, cataracts, thyroid problems, and vWD. The life expectancy of the Lakeland Terrier is around 12-16 years. The parents of the Lakeland Terrier puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.

Lakeland Terrier History

Originating from England, the Lakeland Terrier is related to a variety of other terriers, including the Dandie Dinmont and the Bedlington.
