    Lakeland Terrier |England|

    Lakeland Terrier |England|

    The Lakeland Terrier developed in the Lake District of northern England where it was used by farmers to catch vermin. These feisty terriers often accompanied Foxhound packs, and alerted the hounds to the location of the fox once it had hidden in a burrow. The terriers gained a reputation for fearlessness and endurance, and became extremely popular. They were given the name Lakeland in 1921. A particularly famous Lakeland is Champion Stingray of Derryabah, aka Skipper, who won Best in Show at Crufts in 1967. The following year he won Best in Show at Westminster in the United States. Lakelands are game, bold, playful, and fun family dogs. They can be determined and single minded, but are also sensitive and require patient, consistent training.
