Sealyham Terrier - A Cheerful and Courageous Dog
By: Tippy

The Sealyham Terrier breed of dog is an affectionate, brave,
loving, loyal and spirited little dog. They have been called "the
most beautiful union between cheerfulness and courage." The
Sealyham Terrier isn't as rowdy as some of the other terrier

The Sealyham is rather independent and in general is good
with other pets and children. Sealyham Terriers are good at
hunting, tracking and being a watchdog. They are also good
vermin catchers.

Training this breed can be difficult for the inexperienced
because of its independence. Your Sealyham Terrier should be
well socialized from an early age and so shouldn't be
allowed to develop small dog syndrome. (This is a human
induced behavior where the dog believes itself to be the one
in control.) These dogs are family dogs and want to be with
their family at all times.

The Sealyham Terrier doesn't get taller than twelve inches
and doesn't weigh more than twenty pounds. They live around
fifteen years on average, and in general they are fairly

The Sealyham Terrier does well in an apartment setting.
These dogs are somewhat inactive indoors and enjoy a yard.
This dog breed prefers cool weather to hot.

Your Sealyham Terrier will need to take a walk every day to
take care of its canine physical and psychological needs.
Playing takes care of any other exercise needs they may
need. They will also enjoy being let off the leash to play
in a safe, secure fenced area. This breed makes a good
companion dog for people who are not always active because
they are low energy and in general couch potatoes. These
dogs are low-key and are not always busy or active.

The Sealyham Terrier's medium-length coat needs professional
care. The coat is customarily trimmed or striped. They shed
little to no hair so the breed may be a good choice when
there is someone with allergies in the family.
