Sealyham Terrier Breed Maintenance
The Sealyham Terrier has a double coat; he requires frequent combing (two or three times a week) in order to prevent matting. The coat should be shaped or stripped every three months. The dog needs a moderate amount of exercise. Games with a ball or daily walks can provide the right amount of exercise. Remember, the Sealyham is a born hunter, so letting him off the leash as he walks may be an invitation for trouble. They will follow their nose, tracking interesting scents. The Sealyham is highly intelligent and requires a firm handler. He is independent, but loves constant attention. He may challenge his owner’s authority from time to time, so consistency is key with a Sealyham Terrier. The dog can do well either in an apartment dwelling or out in a home with a fenced-in yard; as long as he receives adequate exercise, the Sealyham is happy.
