Lakeland Terrier - Guide to Lakeland Terriers

Description: Lakeland Terriers are small sized terriers known to be bright, cheerful, courageous and confident. They come from Cumberland County in England and were used by farmers to protect sheep from foxes which they were trained to kill. Lakeland Terriers were also trained to hunt and kill badgers, otters, rabbits and other small animals including vermin. This feisty breed has incredible stamina and can easily hunt for long periods on mountainous, rocky and rough terrain. Its dense, double coat protects the breed from harsh underbrush.

Lakeland Terriers are similar to Welsh Terriers and both are related to the Old English Black & Tan Terrier (which is no longer in existence). It is believed these breeds contributed to the development of the Lakeland Terrier: Bedlington Terrier, Old English Wirehaired Terrier, Border Collie, early Dandie Dinmonts and the Wire Fox Terrier.

These dogs must never be allowed to 'rule the household' - they must always view their owner as their leader. Lakeland Terriers are alert, courageous and protective making them an excellent watch dog. This breed should not be left alone for long periods as they will become bored and may bark incessantly or dig.
