Patterdale Terriers tend to be
very confident in their abilities even when they are just
puppies. For this reason owners of these dogs should be careful
what situtations they put their Patterdale Terrier into, especially
when it is young.
Although they are good natured in general the Patterdale
Terrier generally does not do well with other animals in the
house. They may get along well with other dogs of the same
breed but cats, rabbits, etc are generally not a good fit.
The Patterdale Terrier is very energetic which means it can
cause a great deal of havoc around the household. Owners of
these dogs must make sure that they properly train their Patterdale
Terrier when they first get it and not let it get out of hand
at any point during their lives because it can be very hard
to rectify the behavior of one that has gone bad.
