The Lakeland Terrier is a dog that is playful, full of energy, and can be very entertaining, with lots of enthusiasm and a love for life. He is a confident and courageous dog, but also has a very curious and inquisitive nature that can lead him into trouble, or even into danger. If you have a beautiful designed garden then be warned - these little terriers love to dig. These are also not the right choice for those that want a quiet life, as they demand plenty of activity, plenty of attention, and they can bark a lot. Alert and eager to please, the Lakeland Terrier is an intelligent dog and is quick to learn. However, training can be difficult because these dogs have a very independent and stubborn streak, making them best suited to those with some level of experience with handling and training dogs.

The Lakeland has the typical Terrier temperament, that being bold, friendly, happy and self-confident. He makes a good watchdog and a great companion. He is typically alert, loves activity and is always ready to go. At times, he is also very intense and determined. Shyness and over aggressiveness is not typical of the breed.

The Lakeland Terrier, once known as the Patterdale Terrier, originated in Cumberland County in England in the early 19th century. The Lakeland was bred to hunt vermin in the rugged shale mountains of the northern England Lake District. Some of the breeds involved in the development of the Lakeland Terrier include: The Wire Fox Terrier, the Border Terrier, the Bedlington Terrier, and the early Dandie Dinmont Terrier.
If you are considering a Lakeland Terrier puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases.
