Caring for the Border Terrier's Coat

Border Terriers and Training

Border Terriers are well loved for their energy, intelligence and even their touch of a clownish streak. But, like many terriers, Border Terriers are independent and have a tendency to run towards dominant personalities. Without the proper training, they can be stubborn, quick to chase, and not afraid to initiate a fight with any other creature that rubs him the wrong way. In order to ensure that our Border Terrier doesn't become the head of your household, proper training and plenty of exercise will be key to showing him who is in charge. [...]

Border Terriers and Hunting

Border Terriers enjoy a long history as working dogs going back at least two hundred years. They were originally developed by the Robson family in the middle of the 19th century to hunt fox, rabbit, and other small animals around the border between England and Scotland, which is how they earned their name.

There are several factors that make Border Terriers time consuming pets. In this article, we'll take a look at the responsibilities one will have to take on if they adopt a Border Terrier. [...]

Border Terrier: Did You Know ?

Border Terriers are energetic, playful, clever dogs that are devoted to their favorite person or families. Like many terriers, they tend to have dominant personalities, but this attitude can be trained out with early obedience training. These active little dogs excel in most dog sporting events, including Agility, Obedience, Flyball and Earthdog trials. They respond well to positive reinforcement training and are famous for their love of food, so food treats are an excellent way to reinforce good behavior. Perhaps not the best choice for the youngest of children, Border Terriers are nevertheless excellent companions for families if trained properly. [...]

Are Boston Terriers Really Terriers from Boston?

The naming of a dog breed is an important event and many dog breed names derive from the names of important contributors to the breed, the original jobs the dogs were bred to perform, or some other important aspect from the breed’s history. Sometimes names can be misleading, though, and don’t reflect the true nature of the breed. Take something like the Norwegian Elkhound, for example. This breed is neither a hound, nor was it bred to hunt elk; its name comes from a “mistake” in the translation of the original Norwegian name which meant “Moosedog.” So what about the Boston Terrier? Is it’s name accurate? Is it really a terrier from Boston? [...]

Boston Terriers and Exercise

Before choosing a dog to bring home and add to the family, you must do some research into not only the personality of the breed or breeds you’re considering, but also into the requirements that you’ll have to fulfill to keep your dog happy and healthy, both mentally and physically. Besides the essential nutritional requirements, all dogs need some form of exercise as well as displays of affection, though just how much affection and attention you have to give varies from breed to breed. Dogs who take up quite a bit of your time with grooming, exercise and affection requirements are usually deemed high maintenance dogs, while low maintenance dogs are those that do not demand much of your time and effort.
