History [ edit ]

The Lakeland Terrier is an energetic dog bred to hunt small-mammals like foxes, rabbits, otters, among others. Once known as Patterdale, the Lakeland Terrier is from Lake District, Northern England.

The Lakeland Terrier was developed in the 18th century by farmers, using several breeds like the border collie, the Bedlington Terrier and the Old English Wiltshire Terrier.

This breed is one of the most ancient working terriers, and in 1912 it was created the Patterdale Club in Cumberland County, Lake District, England. Because it wasn´t sure that the Patterdale was originally from that region, as the Lakeland Terrier was also named after other regions from the Lake District like Fell Terrier and Elterwater Terrier, after the first World War it was established the name Lakeland, since it refers to all the regions of the Lake District. In 1921 the breed was recognized and few years later, in 1934 the AKC also gave credit to this breed.

The Lakeland Terrier is a complete dog: a top hunter, also treasured as a companion dog and quite successful as a dog show.

Temperament [ edit ]

Playful, happy and confident, the Lakeland Terrier is always ready to work and play with his never ending energy.

Since were talking about a terrier, the Lakeland isn´t advisable for young children and is wary of strangers. He doesn´t get along with other pets, so the best is for him to have the whole house on his one. The Lakeland Terrier needs to be properly socialized since early age.

This is an intelligent dog, but it can be stubborn at times which can make the training a bit difficult.

He can make an excellent watchdog, since his tendency to bark will alert you to the presence of strangers.

With a bold attitude, he may be the one teasing large dogs, but he is not aggressive. Since they love to dig, these dogs need to run and play off the leash from time to time. They live happily in an apartment as they are very active indoors and exercise themselves. However, the daily walks shouldn’t be neglected.

Being a workaholic, this energetic dog has a sturdy and deep body which facilitates the task of going right into the preys den.
