Overview

Sealyham Terrier is a small Welsh terrier breed that was originally bred for hunting badgers, otters, and foxes. 

Temperament

Sealyham Terriers are known for their friendly and affectionate nature. They love to be around people and are great with children. They are also quite adaptable and can live in apartments or larger homes. However, they have a strong prey drive, so it's important to socialize them well with other animals from a young age.

Lifespan

The average lifespan of a Sealyham Terrier is around 12 to 14 years.

Shedding

Sealyham Terriers have a wiry, weather-resistant coat that requires regular grooming to prevent matting and tangling. However, they are considered low-shedding dogs and are hypoallergenic, making them a great choice for people with allergies.

Puppyhood

Sealyham Terrier puppies are adorable and playful, but they can be quite stubborn and independent. Early socialization and training is important to ensure they grow up to be well-behaved and obedient adults. They also require regular exercise to keep them physically and mentally stimulated. Sealyham Terriers make great family pets for those who are willing to put in the time and effort to train and groom them properly.
