The Lakeland Terriers are solid, sturdy, squarely proportioned dogs similar to the Welsh Terrier, but a bit smaller. This is an elegant breed with a beautiful, elongated head and straight, strongly boned legs.
The thick, hard, adult coat is resistant to bad weather and comes in many combinations of black, black & tan, reddish, red grizzle, wheat, liver & blue, grizzle, and grizzle & tan. The tan color is like straw, not rich and dark. Lakeland Terriers generally like everyone they meet and can distinguish friends from strangers. This breed is an enthusiastic breed who enjoys playing with adults or children and has a way of getting its own way making them an entertaining pet.
The Lakeland Terrier is a peppy, cheerful, loving and affectionate dog. He/she is alert, courageous and confident. This breed loves children. This dog needs firm training. This breed tends to guard their toys and food. The housebreak may be difficult, but tend to learn quite easily otherwise.
The Lakeland Terrier gets along well with other dogs, which is unusual for Terriers. They can be unsure around strangers, but this does not usually become extreme. Socialize them when they are still young with cats and other animals so they do not chase them when they are older.
This breed has a thick, hard coat and sheds water. The Lakeland Terrier should have its coat plucked two or three times each year by pulling the old hair out by hand. The coat of show dogs will require more intensive grooming. This breed sheds little to no hair.
This is a very hardy breed. They are subject to no serious hereditary diseases, however cataracts and lens luxation can be an occasional issue, but can be controlled by regular eye checks at your local vet. To minimize the risk of your Lakeland Terrier developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a puppy from a reputable Lakeland Terrier breeder.
The Lakeland Terrier is good for apartment life, but needs daily exercises. It is very active indoors and will do all right without a yard.
