Overview
Originating in Ireland, this breed was used as an all-purpose farmers' dog. They were vermin killers, guard dogs, herders of sheep and cattle, hunters on land and in water, and a deterrent to trespassers. By 1932 this breed had nearly vanished, but were saved from becoming extinct by dog fancier Patrick Blake. The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is highly intelligent and extremely versatile. They are steadily gaining in popularity in the United States.
Character
The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is medium-sized, compact, agile, and powerful. They possess stamina, gameness, strength, and gaiety. This breed is more steady and stable than most terriers. They have not been overly refined and retain the many fine attributes they were originally developed with.

Does your Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
A happy, well-balanced and friendly terrier, the Wheaten possesses grace and pride. They are self-confident, easy-going, and deeply devoted to their family. They get along well with older children and with dogs they have been raised with. This breed is not suitable for homes with cats or other small household pets. The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier requires a great deal of effort and commitment and is not recommended for novice dog owners. This breed rarely barks, however, due to their size and loyalty they make an excellent dog for personal protection. They are very sensitive and reflect the moods of those around them.
Care
This is a high maintenance breed that requires daily combing to prevent mats and tangles. Professional trimming is needed four to six times per year. Bathing or dry shampooing should be done when necessary. It is important to clean and check the eyes and ears on a consistent basis. The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is prone to flea allergies, Addison's disease, PLN, and PLE. They do not do well in hot climates.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier's coat is this breeds' most distinguishing feature. It is medium long, abundant, soft, silky, and slightly wavy. Although they are a single coat breed, their hair continuously grows and provides insulation and protection. Puppies are born black, but at maturation the coat ranges from gold to reddish-gold to silver. This breed is low shedding.
Training
The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is typically independent and stubborn and requires a dominant owner. However, they are quick to learn and eager to please. Early socialization and basic obedience is recommended. Due to their sensitive nature they do not respond to harsh or heavy-handed training methods. They do best with patience, praise, consistency, firmness, and fairness. The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier excels in agility and fly-ball competition and is used with great success as a therapy dog. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
Athletic and energetic, the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier enjoys many family activities such as hiking, play sessions, and walks. A securely fenced yard where they can romp and run is ideal. They will do well in an apartment or condominium dwelling provided they are sufficiently exercised and receive an appropriate amount of attention and stimulation. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I have Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier puppies for sale! See My Profile
We have a small kennel and love our dogs and puppies for who they are. We raise a nice line of soft coated wheaten terriers and sell them only to individuals. We want to know that our puppies are going to homes who will care for them and where they will become a valued member of the family. We offer a one year health guarantee against genetic defects. I find that my nursing skills are valuable in caring for our dogs and puppies as well. We are thankful the joys that God gives us one of them being the joys of seeing the smiles on children or adults faces as they cuddle their new puppy in their arms.

I have a sick Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. My Vet doesn't know what's wrong with him, I feel like he is on his last leg. Just wondered if anyone has experienced this with their Wheaten Terrier? He is 11 years old and was in good health.

First of all, unless you actually say what symptoms your dog has, no one can help you. Secondly, getting a second and third opinion from other licensed Vets would be your only choice now. The Wheaten Terrier's average life-span is 10 - 12 years. So being 11 is about average for a Wheaten Terrier to possibly start fading. But no one on the internet is going to be able to help. Contact other local Vets in your area and bring your dog to them.

What is the best way to potty train a Wheaten Terrier? I am trying to potty train my Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier puppy who is 11 weeks old. I am asking for help on the best way to train them to potty outside.

Positive reinforcement, positive reinforcement, positive reinforcement. Never scold your pup if you happen to find an accident on the floor. This will only make the pup fearful of going to the bathroom around you/where you can see. So he/she will start to hide to use the potty, instead of telling you that he/she has to go. First and fore-most, if the pup has had an accident in the house, get an enzyme cleaner, such as Nature's Miracle and clean your floors with it. This will give your pup a clean slate as it will take all the smell of potty from the floor. Normal cleaning products you get from Wal-Mart will not work. Next, have your puppy in a crate, or leashed to you at all times. Do not allow your pup to wander through the home un-supervised.

Get a kitchen timer and set it to go off every 2 hours. When the beeper goes off, take your pup outside to potty. Praise him/her with treats and affection when he/she goes potty outside. If he/she doesn't, bring him/her back inside and wait 20 minutes and repeat. If you are at work through the day, have him/her either outside in a secure area (kennel) or have him/her in a crate inside. But make sure there is someone to let your pup out to potty every 4 hours. Limit the amount of water your pup has before bed-time, such as 2-3 hours before bed. Good luck!

I have a 4-year-old w/ Down Syndrome. Would a male or female Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier be a better fit?

The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is a loving and gentle breed of dog. Neither male or female would be a difference in getting a dog for the family. However, the main thing to do is to get the dog from a reputable and qualified breeder. A breeder with experience will be able to pick a puppy out for your family that will be the perfect fit. Temperament is what you want to look for, not sex.

How many weeks does it take to breed a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier from inception to birth?

Unless you are a reputable breeder or are under the study of one, you shouldn't be breeding. Breeding dogs is very dangerous for the dam, sire and the puppies. Unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, has passed all temperament and health checks and has titles in confirmation and/or has shown he/she is capable of doing what the breed was made for, the dog should be spayed/neutered. The gestation for a dog is 63 days.

I have asthma to animal dander and I've been told that the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is the dog for me. Is this true that the Wheaten is hypoallergenic?

Then you will be thrilled with a Wheaten! We had our Samantha for 13 years! I suffer from severe allergies due to dander and I can attest that I never had one day of trouble with our Wheaten. Not only are they hypoallergenic, they are the happiest, most loving breed of dogs you will find! Rico
