The Scottish Terrier hails from Aberdeen and was developed about 100 or so year ago. The farmers used them to keep the vermin numbers down. They also worked with fox hunters, the hounds would trail the foxes and then the terriers would keenly follow them down into their burrows and dig to get to the foxes. Their tail needed to be strong so the hunters could pull them out of the burrow.
They are a happy, lovably companion and do tend to bark at anything that takes their attention, this makes them a good watchdog. They are known to be a bit stubborn so firm but not harsh handling from a young age is recommended.

Grooming- regular brushing is needed and they should be clipped or trimmed twice a year to keep the coat neat and knot free. Bath when necessary or dry shampoo.

Exercise- in a good sized yard these guys will run around and exercise themselves but also love to go for walks and have play times with you.

Health- This breed has sensitive skin and cannot tolerate fleas and may result in skin problems.
