About West Highland White Terrier

Country of Origin, History of the breed

The Cairn Terrier has been a contributor to many of Scotland’s terriers. The Scottish, West Highland, and Cairn Terriers developed from the same stock, originating in the islands and highlands of western Scotland. The three often were found in the same litter, distinguished only by color.

Eventually the dogs were selectively bred to white dogs until all the offspring were white and that became the West Highland White Terrier.

Personality

Temperament of the Dog

The West Highland White Terrier entertains his owner with boundless energy and all types of amusing behavior. He loves to learn tricks and show off for people.

The hardy and scrappy West Highland White Terrier is strong, alert, and spirited. He is a busybody who is mischievous, independent, and lovable. He has his own ideas of what to do and when to do it and those ideas sometimes get him into trouble. His independence, along with his fearlessness, make him a bit difficult to obedience train if you don’t start early and continue firmly and persistently.

His intelligence and desire to please make him fairly easy to train and very good in obedience and agility. Both are activities that direct his energy into positive outlets.
West Highland Whites are great with children of all ages as they have great patience with them. They adapt to new situations easily, so travel well. They crave the companionship of their family and will want to be in the thick of the action.
They are sensitive, but need lovingly firm discipline.

Unnecessary barking will make a pest of a once good watchdog and frantic digging will turn a landscaped yard into what looks like a mine field.

This breed can be quite the charmer.

Westies are not as willful as other terriers and will probably get along with other pets better than most terriers.

Better suited to an indoor or outdoor lifestyle?

This small breed needs to live indoors. When outdoors, a West Highland Terrier will either dig holes all over the area or he will bark excessively if not taught differently from an early age.

Always supervise your West Highland White outdoors. Do not let him off lead except in an area with a secured (underground as well as above ground) fence.

Are they suited to homes with kids?

The West Highland White Terrier is very patient with children of all ages. He loves to play, so playing with children makes him happy.

Activity Level

How Active is the Breed?

This is a very active breed, but they will get much of their activity from playing with toys indoors.

How Much Exercise Does the Dog Need at every stage of its Life?

The West Highland White Terrier likes to run and play (and dig) outdoors, but must be supervised and inside a secure fence. He is a very energetic little dog who can get much of his exercise from playing with toys indoors.

He can live in an apartment if he is taught early not to bark excessively and if he is taken on a couple of daily walks. An occasional romp in a secure area will satisfy him.

 

Grooming

The shaggy coat of the West Highland White Terrier can quickly become a horrible, matted mess. To keep this from happening, he needs to be brushed daily, but his undercoat should not get overly much attention.

Once a month he may need a bath. Then his coat should be brushed out carefully and completely when it dries. A monthly trim around his eyes and ears and feet and a monthly nail trim will keep him looking and feeling good.

Professional grooming 4-5 times a year will shape the coat and eliminate dead hair that does not shed. If he is to be shown, he will have to have professional grooming every 6 weeks to shape his coat properly.

West Highland Whites shed very little.

 

Health and Care

Genetic Problems

Most West Highland Terriers are quite healthy. Some have chronic skin problems probably due to being all-white. Perthe’s disease (hip problems), hernias, liver disease, and jawbone calcification have been reported.

Life Span: West Highland White Terriers live 15 years or more.
