ABOUT THE BREED
The Lakeland Terrier is an English breed dating back to the 1800s. One of the oldest living terrier breeds still known today, Lakelands were originally developed by farmers in the Lake District to accompany them on hunts and to prevent fox and other vermin from destroying their sheep herds.
The Lakeland Terrier has a dense, wiry coat with longer hair on the legs and muzzle, giving him a distinct beard. Small, sturdy, and workmanlike, the breed’s narrow frame allows him to squeeze into rocky dens to chase after vermin.
While Lakelands offered important services to farmers, they also provided them with sport because they could follow underground for long distances. There are many records of Lakelands going to ground for more than 10 days and surviving.
Although generally a show dog or family companion today, Lakelands can also be found utilizing their natural instincts at earth dog events or digging in the backyard. The breed comes in a variety of colors including blue, black, black and tan, grizzle and tan, liver, red and wheaten with or without a patch of color over the back and shoulders called a "saddle". The Lakeland's ideal size is 14½ inches tall at the shoulder and 17 pounds.
The Lakeland is bold, friendly and confident but has a quiet disposition. He is well suited for a variety of living situations. His energy level makes him ideal for owners with active lifestyles. His coat sheds minimally and requires periodic clipping or "hand stripping."
