Gay and fearless, the Lakeland Terrier, named for the Lake District in Britain, stands out among that nation's many excellent long-legged terriers. Quite small by comparison to its quarry-seeking brethren, the Lakeland Terrier possesses every ounce of confidence, boldness and bravery of the others, and remains unspoiled by the popularity that has followed these other chart-toppers. Still tingling with its natural earthdog instincts, the Lakey, as he's affectionately known, is an excellent working dog but offers numerous delights as a companion as well. Author Patricia Peters, the breeder of the famed Kilfel Lakelands, describes the breed as "curious and mischievous, and less aggress than most other terriers." These dogs are free-thinking little devils, whose cunning ways qualify them as "con artists," both entertaining and frustrating for the devoted owner. For the right family, the Lakeland Terrier will be the only dog to fit the bill. This new Special Limited Edition, full illustrated with color photographs, provides an excellent introduction to the breed, including a detailed discussion of the breed's origins in the UK and its development in the US, the breed's characteristics and special traits, the breed standard and more. The author offers her expert advice on matters of puppy selection, rearing and training, home safety, socialization, house-training, feeding and grooming-in fact, every area about which Lakey owners are concerned. A health chapter by world-famous veterinarian and author Dr. Lowell Ackerman presents excellent up-to-date information about vaccinations, parasite control, spaying/neutering and much more.
