Overview
A playful and affectionate dog, they make wonderful companions. Proper socialization is necessary if this breed is to be placed with small children, or non-canine animals. The Dandie Dinmont Terrier is an intelligent breed that is known for easy trainability.

It is recommended that this breed not be placed with non-canine pets, however if raised from puppyhood, there should be no problems. The Dandie Dinmont Terrier is an entertaining and intelligent breed that loves to play, and obey his owner.
Care
Regular brushing is necessary for this longhaired breed. This breed sheds little to no hair, however can shed lightly. Requires professional grooming if owner is not trained to do so themselves. Dead hair should be plucked. Bathe when necessary.
Coat
Crisp coat containing both soft and coarse hair. The Dandie Dinmont Terrier is a longhaired breed that requires quite a bit of coat maintenance to keep hair free from tangles. Hard, crisp hair should be not wiry; hair on head should be soft and silky.
Training
The Dandie Dinmont Terrier requires a firm yet gentle hand, as they can be stubborn at times. However, training is relatively simple with this intelligent breed. Does not do well with obedience training. Short attention span.
Activity

Ownership
Help reduce the number of Dandie Dinmont Terrier puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Generally a healthy breed. Some are prone to glaucoma and epilepsy. Hypothyroidism can occur when the dog is older. Do not overfeed, as an overweight dog can have back problems.

Not generally, but any dog can be barky if they are not trained properly and have not had enough exercise.
