sturdy-looking dog, strong and muscular with a very
alert expression. The legs are straight and sturdy.

adventurous, mischievous, playful dog. Cheerful
and peppy, affectionate and loving, he can also
be feisty and determinedly willful when he wants
to be. The Lakeland shows great courage that goes
Lakeland Terriers like to dig,
so be sure to secure the fence below the ground.
They also tend to be barkers and need to be trained
early to stop barking on command. They guard their
toys and food fiercely.
Although difficult to housebreak,
they train to walk on lead fairly easily. They love
to please, so obedience training is not too difficult.
However, training needs to start early, continue
consistently, and be mixed with play and games so
there is a challenge.
Unlike many terriers, the Lakeland
gets along well with other dogs. He may be reserved
with strangers. If they are to live with cats and
other pets, they need to be socialized with them
early so they do not chase them.
They make good watchdogs. They
love and excel at competitive obedience and agility.

in the house.

indoors. He likes a yard but it is not necessary
as long as he gets short walks through the day.
How Much Exercise Does

Puppies are more active than adults.
Adults and puppies are very active indoors, so once
or twice weekly romps outdoors in a safe area such
as a fenced yard or dog park are sufficient.
The Lakeland enjoys daily, long
walks or jogs and is a suitable dog for running
alongside you as you bicycle. He loves to play catch,
fetch, Frisbee®, etc. Agility training will
also keep him exercised and help his mind stay busy.
The Lakeland Terrier is a fine
dog for apartment living.
The Lakeland Terrier will need
