Bedlington Terrier   Terrier, Family Dog, Grooming Needs


The Bedlington Terrier may look like a little lamb (only 16’5” tall and 23lbs) but he is also an athletic and enthusiastic vermin hunter. Fortunately, with their families, they do often possess a very sweet, “lamblike” personality: mild, gentle, and excellent with children. Like all dogs, they require regular exercise and playtime, though their needs are not excessive. Their signature wool coat, however, requires regular attention and grooming.
