Skye Terrier Dog Temperament
The Skye terrier's soft look belies her tough nature. She is a fearless and a deadly rodent hunter. She is also a mild-mannered house pet. She still needs daily exercise in a safe area or on leash, however. She is sensitive yet stubborn. The Skye is affectionate with her family but cautious with strangers. She gets along fairly well with other dogs in the same household. She is extremely courageous and game and makes a good watchdog.
