Dandie Dinmont Terrier Temperament

Personality, and Breed Guide

Dandie Dinmont Terrier Temperament

 


Contrary to their name Dandies tend to be feisty little dogs with a love of the rough-and-tumble The Dandie Dinmont temperament is such that it makes a very good companion dog for most small houses and apartments since they're little, don't shed and aren't "yappy." They are loving and affectionate and will bond closely with family members.

 An intelligent breed with an independent streak, they can be wilful and training can be tricky because they are unlikely to be as keen to be trained as you are!

It is vitally important that you are firm, consistent, and make training sessions fun  for your Dandie Dinmont  Pup. They love to run around and play, the less they think you're trying to get one over on them, the easier it will be.

Dandies stand their ground if pushed and will take on the toughest opponent whether that is a critter cornered  in a burrow, a stranger or rival dog regardless of the size so early introductions to other animals and good socialization is a must.
