Sealyhams are yet another breed which was developed with a specific purpose in mind during the 1800s. The squire of Sealyham, Captain John Edwardes, is said to have used West Highland White Terriers and Dandie Dinmonts in the creation of a terrier with courage and conformation to confront larger vermin such as polecats and badgers. They were bred to work along other Sealyhams in hunting packs.
Today's Sealyham retains its self-confidence and courage but seems a much more amiable dog than his working ancestors. They are fairly quiet, but they will bark to announce animal & human visitors. They are not a smelly dog, they produce a very low amount of dander and there is very little oil in the coat, due to this they can make good pets for people with allergies, Sealyham is a Asthma friendly breed.

Grooming- a brush once a week while in coat is all they need, and a bath when needed. They shed coat twice a year and it's a good idea to get a stripping comb and remove all the dead hair.

Exercise- They need moderate but regular exercise to stay in shape.

Health- For Diet and other general dog health information Health/Nutrition
