    Border Terriers are one of the most popular dogs in the UK.

    The reason for their popularity is often because they are good with children and other pets, fun-loving and intelligent.

    Need to know if a Border Terrier would suit you? 

    Find out more about this incredible breed: 

    • Border Terriers are part of the terrier group and are generally bred as working animals.
    • This breed is thought to be very intelligent and very trainable as they like to please their owners. However, as they are independent dogs they require firmness and tolerance while training.
    • Puppies may at first be shy, therefore it is vital that they mix with other animals and humans. 
    • The border Terrier is an easy-going, fun-loving and affectionate dog, therefore making this breed good with people, particularly children. On a less positive aspect is that they are quite stubborn and have a mind of their own.
    • Other characteristics many Border Terriers hold is that they are lively, bossy, feisty, scrappy, independent, persistent and strong willed. Not negative on their own, but you need to keep them in mind.
    • Owners of a Border Terrier can have other pets too, because like many other dog breeds, this dog tends to live in agreement with other household pets. Yet, as this dog is a hunting dog, be careful not to share the household with non-canine pets such as hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits and birds.
    • Border Terriers need to have their coat maintained by weekly stripping, which can at first be time consuming for many owners. However, on the plus side these dogs have a coat which is easier to trim than other wirehaired terriers. Also luckily the Border Terrier does not shed too much.
    • These breeds make good watch dogs as they can bark loudly but they are not aggressive.
    • They are active dogs and will need regular exercise, so they need owners who can provide them with enough exercise and keep them busy. If a Border Terrier seems the right dog for you, take a look at some of the adverts available online now.
