Border Terrier Breed Maintenance
The Border Terrier's coat needs weekly brushing. The outer coat will require hand-stripping a few times year to remove dead hair. The Border Terrier sheds little to none, so they make good pets for people with allergies. The Border Terrier does not require frequent bathing. When you do bathe a Border Terrier it is recommended that you use a shampoo designed for a Terrier’s coat. The Border Terrier is a high energy dog that needs daily exercise and when provided with that, the breed can be happy living in an apartment or a house. They enjoy challenges in the form of both physical and mental activities. There are fun hide and seek toys which can help the Border Terrier to not become bored. Border Terriers, if left alone for extended periods of time with little exercise, can become barkers. It is important to have a safe backyard because they can be escape artists. If left unsupervised in a yard, their instinct to dig can kick in.
