Pet Profile

Taking Care of a Border Terrier

The Border Terrier needs daily exercise. Long walks, even in bad weather, are ideal for expending your abundant energy. The breed is not suitable for apartment living. Also, alone in backyards, they will have no difficulty in increasing the size of a hole under the fence with their powerful paws, before squeezing themselves and disappearing through the passage, after all, they are great escapees by nature. Therefore, do not leave a dog of the breed alone or in a garden without any supervision, because if it gets bored, it can start digging and spoiling the plants.
