Its maintenance is very simple: twice a year waxing and brushing once a week. To avoid damaging his hair, it is not recommended to wash it too often. The Border Terrier is increasingly known for its agility prowess!
He is named after the Borders region in southern Scotland where he was raised. He would be descended from the old type of Bedlington with contributions from Lakeland Terrier and Dandie Dinmont Terrier. Its name took hold in 1880. A specialized club was created in 1920. It was first used for fox hunting and to accompany hound packs. Very rare in France until 1985, it has since experienced a real craze. Rustic, with exceptional endurance, full of drive, able to follow a horse, courageous and strong. He has a strong personality but with a happy character. Very attached to his masters, he loves children. He adapts to life in an apartment if he is offered long and frequent outings.
