To no surprise, the Scottish Terrier was developed in
Scotland, originally used for hunting den animals (badgers, rabbits, etc.). Today,
their friendly and playful personality makes for an excellent companion pet. Muscular and robust, Scotties are confident
and brave. They have not forgotten their heritage. Because of this confidence,
Scotties can become subborn, even bossy. To prevent this, the owner needs to assert leadership over the dog. For an inexperienced dog owner, this may require obedience training for the dog and owner.
Scotties are okay with children, but we recommend older children
who are able to place dominance over the animal in a kind and appropriate manner.
Scotties have little to no shedding and are hypoallergenic. Regular
brushing is required. Bathe only when needed and the
coat should be trimmed every 6 months or so.
Exercise for a Scottie should consist of daily short walks
or a play around the yard. They do fine with apartment living. They also make
good watch dogs.
Scotties grow to be around 20 pounds full grown. They live
for approximately 12 to 15 years.
