Overview
The West Highland White Terrier is typically referred to as a Westie. They originated in Scotland in the middle of the 19th century to control the population of fox, otter, and other animals and rodents. The Westie is now primarily a companion pet.
Character
The West Highland White Terrier is hardy and compact, spirited and well adjusted. They have attained the status of being one of the most popular breeds. They are intelligent and usually display good manners. The Westie is playful but can also be quiet and determined.
Temperament
The Westie is energetic and spunky. They are devoted to their family, but are not very interested in being cuddled. They alert to danger by barking and are good watchdogs. The Westie is a wonderful family pet that prefers to be the only pet in the home. They get along with children over the age of ten who are well behaved. They can be demanding and assertive, and exhibit true terrier traits. They have a tendency to snap when irritated. The West Highland White Terrier is a social, fun loving breed that does best in an active and attentive household.
Care
The West Highland White Terrier 's double coat requires brushing twice weekly. They also require having their coat professionally stripped at least two times per year. They should only be bathed when necessary, as they are prone to dry skin. The Westie may be susceptible to deafness, patella luxation, and allergies.
Coat
The West Highland White Terrier is a double coat breed. The outer coat is straight, harsh and wiry. The under coat is close, fluffy, and soft. Their coat is brilliant white in color and lends to this breed an elegant look. They are moderate shedders.
Training
The West Highland White Terrier must be trained beginning at an early age especially in the area of socialization. They respond best to love and gentle guidance. As with most all Terrier breeds, harsh methods of training are met with stubbornness. The Westie is usually open to obedience training provided it is done fairly and consistently.
Activity
The West Highland White Terrier loves to run and explore. They are not suited for apartment living, as they are easily excitable. This high-energy breed needs at least an hour of exercise daily. The Westie must have ample yard space that is securely fenced as they have a propensity to dig. They love to engage in rough and tumble play with older children and have the stamina to do so for lengthy periods of time.
