Bedlington Terrier Puppies
If you are thinking of getting a lovely and unique pet, the Bedlington Terrier could be a great choice. It is unique in every aspect and small in size. However, prior to setting off to purchase this breed, it is crucial that you learn how it looks like and the care it requires.

The front legs are straight but shorter than the back ones. The tail of the San Diego Bedlington Terrier puppy is low set and thicker at its root.

It is also common to see tan marking on the dog’s chest, over its eyes and at the back of the legs.
The Bedlington Terrier puppy San Diego is mainly purchased as a family pet. This is because it is cheerful, affectionate and playful. It is easy going with children and with friendly strangers. However, on the realization of the owner’s passive or meek nature, the Bedlington can become hard to deal with. You will also need to socialize it early especially when it has to live with other house pets. The Bedlington Terrier does well with other dogs but needs to be separated from breeds that love dominating. This is because the Bedlington can be aggressive when challenged.

It is crucial to train the bad habits out of the breed as early as possible. This is because when it becomes obsessive of a habit, it can be hard to change it. Improper handling can also cause it to develop the separation anxiety or the small dog syndrome.
