Silkland Terrier Activity Requirements
Your Silkland Terrier is a pretty energetic little family member. She'll need 1 to 2 hours a day of appropriate exercise to manage this energy. She'll love those daily walks, though they needn't be long since she is small, as well as playtime in the dog park or fenced yard. She'll also be quite eager to be involved in interactive games of fetch, Frisbee, hunt and seek (inside or outside) and obedience and agility training. Her small size makes her perfect for apartment or condo living, as long as there is a commitment made for her exercise needs. She can also live quite nicely in a family home with or without a fenced yard, in a rural or urban setting. She is best suited to a temperate climate, where the weather is neither extremely hot or cold, but she can live anywhere as long as she is provided appropriate protection and precautions made to protect her from the temperature extremes. She has a high hunting drive and moderate tendency to wander. This makes it vital to keep her on leash when outside the house, fenced yard or other safe enclosed area, that is unless you fond of chasing her through the neighborhood, around the block or through the woods in hot pursuit of a small animal or interesting scent which has attracted her attention.
