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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Lakeland 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.

Is the Lakeland Terrier good with children and other dogs? We have a very friendly Staffordshire... 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 centre. Many thanks

Lakelands can be challenging. Our Lakeland female got along farily 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 is you and can grow up with the other dog preferably a larger dog. No children under about 11 years old is my recommendation.
