Soft coated Wheaten Terrier Grooming and Breed Care

Soft coated Wheaten Terrier Temperament

The Soft coated Wheaten Terrier is a cheerful, lively, and happy dog. He is sociable, confident, and often acts like a puppy even as he grows up. These dogs have a fair amount of energy, and enjoy vigorous play and exercise. When not on a leash, the Soft coated Wheaten Terrier needs a safe and secure area in which to play and exercise with high fences, as he may otherwise escape. They thrive on interaction, companionship, and the love of their owners, and are not suited to those that cannot commit time to look after a pet. With proper, early socialization the Soft coated Wheaten Terrier boasts a confident, friendly, and sociable personality. However, they can be something of a handful, and are best suited to those with some experience of dog ownership. Owners need to be confident, assertive, and consistent when it comes to training. Some can be obstinate, strong willed, and difficult to control with the wrong owner or inadequate training.

 

These spirited dogs get along well with older, gentle children, and with proper socialization will get along okay with other pets, although some can be aggressive with same sex dogs. They will bark to raise an alarm, and this makes them effective watchdogs, but they are usually friendly and sociable with strangers despite their bark. The Soft coated Wheaten Terrier is a quick learner, responsive, and intelligent, so training should not prove too much of a challenge for those with experience. Providing you can provide this dog with the attention, as well as the mental and physical stimulation that he needs, he can make a good, steady companion and pet.
