Lakeland Terriers are known for their affectionate and friendly ways. They get on very well with hoomans as well as children and other dogs. They can sometimes be quite feisty which makes them a little harder to train, so they're probably not the best breed for a first-time owner. Once trained properly, they make fantastic family pets and their comical ways make people quickly fall in love with them! Although small, their tendency to be fairly vocal may rule out being able to live in an apartment (unless you have sound-proof walls!). These dogs require a fair amount of grooming due to their double coats however, for the right family, they make excellent pets.
