Sealyham Terrier Dog Temperament

One of the calmer terriers, the Sealyham is nonetheless ready for action, always happy to investigate, dig or give chase. She is a well-mannered house dog but needs some daily exercise. She can be reserved with strangers, but devoted to her family. She is stubborn and independent. Some dig and bark.

Sealyham Terrier Dog Care

The Sealyham's exercise needs are not too demanding, consisting of a short to moderate walk or game session every day. If allowed off leash, she should be in a safe area because she may tend to follow her nose. This breed is suited for indoor life, preferably with yard access, although she can live in an apartment. Her wire coat needs combing two to three times weekly, plus shaping every three months. Shaping for pets is by clipping, or stripping.
