The Border Terrier

The Border Terrier

Description:

The Border terrier is one of the best dogs you can keep if you have children in the house. Not only does he fair well with children of all ages, he’s the perfect combination of behaving inside the house and frolicking when outdoors. One of the few terriers you can leave alone and not come back to what used to be your house!

If you’re a fan out biking and hiking, the Border terrier is your perfect companion. Their stamina will go strong for as long as your does. Although, when you do take them for walks, put a leash on them since they like to chase smaller animals. They get along rather well with other dogs and can even adjust to cats if they’re raised with them.

Their intuition when it comes to new sights and sounds is what makes them excellent watch dogs. Reserving their barks only for new happenings, the Border terriers are very alert of their surroundings. In spite of being independent and strong-willed, they are easy to train as they adapt to your needs relatively faster and are very eager to please their family.

History:

The Border terrier is one of the oldest terriers known in England and is said to have gotten the name from the border region between Scotland and England. Initially used as hunting dogs, the Border terriers were later used by shepherds and farmers as herd dogs for their stock. Up until the English Kennel Club registered this terrier in 1920, which was also then the first Border Terrier Club of England was formed, they were relatively unheard of. In 1930, the AKC admitted them and as of till 2007, they rank 81 out of 157 breeds.
