Overview
This friendly breed is very cheerful and affectionate, making him ideal for family life. Very alert, courageous, and somewhat independent, this breed however is not recommended for the average owner as he has the tendency to develop behavioral problems without experienced training.
Character
The Lakeland Terrier can be wary around strangers, but does well with other dogs and can do well with cats if properly socialized at an early stage in life. This dog loves to chase moving objects so should never be let off lead unless in a fenced in yard.
Temperament
Peppy, spunky, and jolly, this breed does exceptionally well with children. Very feisty and vivacious, this breed requires firm training. They love to dig and have the tendency to guard items that he considers "his." The Lakeland Terrier is somewhat of a barker.
Care
The Lakeland Terrier sheds little to no hair, but does require frequent grooming. A professional should perform hand plucking the hair approximately three times per year. Hair inside the ears should also be plucked. The beard of this breed should be regularly cleaned.
Coat
The Lakeland Terrier has a thick double coat making grooming a chore. The outer coat should be hard and wiry in texture, while the undercoat should be soft and lie close to the body of the dog.
Training
This energetic dog responds best with a variety of training methods and can be difficult to housebreak. He requires obedience training to be well mannered, and should have firm training.
Activity
As with most terriers, this breed is very lively and would do best with a small to average size yard. However, will do okay without one. The Lakeland Terrier does exceptionally well in agility, and loves jogging or brisk runs.

AKC breed information has some.

Is the Lakeland Terrier good with children and other dogs? We have a very friendly Staffordshire Bull Terrier who stays with us very occasionally and is now quite old but very friendly and well behaved. We intend to find one from a rescue rehoming center.

Lakelands can be challenging. Our Lakeland Terrier female got along fairly well with our older Irish Terrier, but would sometimes attack him if she got excited by a visitor at the door or other household excitement. Avoid male - male and female - female situations.

I do not recommend small children or other dogs unless the Lakeland Terrier can grow up with the other dog preferably a larger dog. No children under about 11 years old is my recommendation.

My Lakeland is 9 mo old he does need firm discipline at times but is very affectionate! The only problem I have had and I blame this on puppy behavior is he likes to nip out of play. Never has he ever even been aggressive! I have a 4 yr old boy that really puts him through a lot of rough play and he has never snapped at him! Every dog is different this is just our experience with our Lakie that we love!

My Lakeland is 8 yrs old and an evil genius. Gets along well with larger dogs (has a 80lb "brother" that he bosses around), though he wants to be king or he will ignore them. Doesn't hurt my cats, but will chase as that is their game. Does well with any child, BUT may jump up to see if they have any treats. While he needs a firm hand, he is a very entertaining dog.
