Dandie Dinmont Terrier

The Dandie Dinmont Terrier is named after a character that does not really exist. The animal is in fact named after a fictional character. In the book Guy Mannering Walter Scott describes a farmer who owns a terrier. The dog is named after this farmer. The Dandie Dinmont Terrier is a true terrier, but its legs are a bit shorter. However, the animal has a nice character, is friendly and full of energy.

The terrier existed before Walter Scott wrote his book. The breed is only named after a character in his book. The terrier Walter Scott refers to is described as a powerful, brave terrier that would hunt otters and badgers. Otters and badgers were not popular around 1700 because they hunted game. In the 19th century, the dogs made their appearance at various European courts, where they were shamelessly pampered.

Although the Dandie Dinmont Terrier has a sweet character, it is also a stubborn dog. The animal likes to pull its own plan. It is therefore important that the dog learns when to listen. A characteristic of this breed is that they like to search for boundaries and if possible cross them. The animals are very fond of their owners and like to have them around. They do not like to be left alone. With its loyal character, enthusiasm and cheerful mood, the dog is a very suitable family dog. However, if you already have a dog, you should really get lucky. The Dandie Dinmont Terrier likes to have undivided attention. He finds it difficult to have to compete with another dog.

Although this breed is not that big, they do have a burly character. The Dandie Dinmont Terrier is quite tough. That is why it is good to teach the animal to obey. This is best done by approaching the animal in a positive way. A hard approach does not work with this dog. A clear, straightforward education is necessary. When you don't do this, the animal becomes completely unmanageable.
