Bedlington Terrier

 

If you have trouble sleeping and are allergic to wool, you can try counting Bedlington Terriers instead of sheep. These dogs in sheep's clothing make lively, gentle, and chipper companions. Many enjoy chasing mice, squirrels, and other rodents. These are funny, perceptive, and versatile dogs.

Originally from England, this moderate-sized and medium-energy breed can grow to between 17-23 pounds and lives an average of 11-16 years. The breed is recognized by the American Kennel Club and classified as a member of the Terrier breed group.

BEHAVIOR & TRAINING

WHAT'S A BEDLINGTON TERRIER'S PERSONALITY LIKE?

These dogs are alert, brave, and energetic. Bedlington Terriers are devoted family members, though they'll do best with supervised children. This is an affectionate dog who thrives on attention and company. With early and consistent socialization, Bedlington Terriers can get along well with other dogs and even the family cat (though outdoor cats might still be fair game).

WHAT IS BEDLINGTON TERRIER BEHAVIOR LIKE?

These dogs are very active, and they love the water. Their energy levels call for regular, moderate exercise: think substantive daily walks or off-leash romps in safe areas. When they've played enough, they're calm and polite housemates.

Bedlington Terriers make for vigilant watchdogs, but they'll be happy to welcome visitors to your home or greet strangers on the street.

HOW EASY IS IT TO TRAIN A BEDLINGTON TERRIER?

Bedlington Terriers are very responsive to training. Start early and be patient and consistent; your pup will respond to play, treats, and praise. They can be prone to barking if under-exercised or neglected; be sure to teach yours to use his inside voice.

They are Earthdogs, meaning they love to dig and hunt underground prey; they also excel at rally, agility, flyball, and obedience training.

CARE & HEALTH

HOW MUCH DO BEDLINGTON TERRIERS SHED AND WHAT ARE THEIR GROOMING NEEDS?

Bedlington Terriers are single-coated. Their hair is long, curly, and crisp. They require frequent grooming to shorten hair and keep it tidy. Bedlington Terriers are infrequent, minimal shedders. The American Kennel Club lists them among the breeds recommended for allergy-sufferers. Their coats grow quickly, so they'll need regular cuts or clipping. To maintain their unique style, use a slicker brush, scissors, and a greyhound comb, or schedule regular trips to the groomer.

WHAT HEALTH PROBLEMS DO BEDLINGTON TERRIERS HAVE?

Bedlington Terriers are usually a healthy breed. Some have been known to develop Copper Toxicosis, an inherited sensitivity to copper; less frequently, some develop an eye ailment.
