Though sometimes stubborn and strong willed; border terriers are, on the whole very even tempered, and
are friendly and rarely aggressive.The mood changes depending on the dog. Border Terriers generally
get along well with other dogs and are often good with children, but may chase cats and any other small
pets.

Borders do well in task-oriented activities and have a surprising ability to jump high and run fast given the
size of their legs. The breed has excelled in agility training, but they are quicker to learn jumps and
see-saws than weaving poles. They take training for tasks very well, but appear less tractable if being
taught mere tricks.

They are intelligent and eager to please, but they retain the capacity for independent thinking and
initiative that were bred into them for working rats and fox underground. Their love of people and even
temperament make them fine therapy dogs, especially for children and the elderly, and they are
occasionally used to aid the blind or deaf. From a young age they should be trained on command.

Borders can adapt to different environments and situations well, and are able to deal with temporary
change well. They will get along well with cats that they have been raised with, but may chase other cats
and small animals such as mice, rabbits, squirrels, rats, and guinea pigs.

Borders love to sit and watch what is going on. Walks with Borders will often involve them sitting and lying
in the grass to observe the environment around them. They can be stubborn when they are tired and
often require short breaks to sit and observe during long walks; it can be difficult to get them moving
again.

Border Terrier (Comprehensive Owners Guide)
Courageous of heart, active and game, this little working
terrier known as the Border Terrier delights his owners with
his friendly, happy disposition as well as his unwavering
work ethic. Historically bred to follow the horses on the
hunt, this is an energetic, purposeful terrier that is smart
and resourceful, requiring an owner who can keep up with
his quick mind and body. Author Muriel P. Lee, terrier
judge and breeder, has provided an excellent introduction
to the Border Terrier in this new Special Limited Edition.

This comprehensive guide includes the history of the
breed in England and the US, a discussion of the breed’s
characteristics and standard, a chapter on puppy
selection, care and rearing. The author also discusses
house-training and obedience training plus preventing
(and solving) behavior problems. General maintenance,
including feeding the Border throughout his life, grooming
and exercise, is carefully considered, as is the preventive
healthcare of the breed.

Dr. Lowell Ackerman, in a special guest chapter, discusses
the vital health topics that concern owners, including the
selection of a qualified veterinarian, parasite control,
vaccinations, infectious diseases and more. For every
owner of this fun, active terrier, this new colorful guide
promises to be an invaluable resource for years to come.
