Terrier dog breeds (AKC)
Lakelands get on well with children and also with other dogs-not common among Terriers. They can be uncertain of strangers but this does not usually become extreme. Teach them when they are young to get on well with cats and other household animals, so that they will not chase them later.
The coat is thick, hard, and sheds water. It can be black and tan, blue and tan, red-grey, red, wheaten, liver, blue, or black in colour.
The Lakeland Terrier needs its coat to be plucked two or three times a year, meaning removal of the old hair by pulling it out by hand. Remove loose hairs also from ear passages and trim excess hair between the pads of the feet. The coats of show dogs require more intensive grooming.
This sportive dog learns quite easily. Because of this make sure that the training is full of variety and offers the dog a challenge; in this way it will quickly pick up your intentions.
