Temperament & Personality
Like all Terrier breeds, the Lakeland is a fearless dog. They play with the zeal of a puppy, even in their adult stage. The dog enjoys the company of the family members but remains reserved with strangers (will not bite them). However, sometimes it has an independent streak and often compared to teenagers. Always in alert mode and are ready to go, they are both curious and eager to know things around. They are much better with other dogs as compared with any other Terrier. When well socialized, they are polite to strangers, but the owner may need to control its excessive barking nature. They love to dig the grounds and can be very possessive of their toys.
