Right Breed for You?

Will a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Fit our Lifestyle and Family?


Is the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier the right breed for you?

Ask yourself the following…

Are you looking for:

  • A bright, affectionate companion?
  • A medium sized, sturdy dog?
  • An energetic, fun loving, active dog?
  • An occasionally exuberant personality?
  • A dog with an attractive, soft, wavy coat?

Are you willing to:

  • Monitor and socialize an active puppy?
  • Train an independent terrier, starting with puppy classes ( a real “must”)
  • Devote time to grooming, daily for some stages and weekly for mature dogs?
  • Bathe, blow dry and trim, or have your Wheaten professionally groomed monthly?
  • Provide a safe, fenced area and lots of exercise?
