The Dandie Dinmont is affectionate and fun-loving. This dog makes a great companion dog. This lively, plucky, determined and willful dog is independent and intelligent. They are reserved with strangers and protective of family and home. These little dogs are good with all well-behaved children and babies as long as they are raised with them from puppyhood. Some males can be aggressive with other male dogs in the household. It is best not to keep two intact male dogs together. He/she should not be trusted with non-canine pets. They will be okay with cats if raised with from puppyhood. This little dog has a big bark for its size. They are not difficult to train, but allowance must be made for the fact that they can be very stubborn and not keen on obedience.
Soft, linty undercoat and harder topcoat, not wiry and feeling crisp to the hand. It needs to be brushed regularly and should have professional grooming. Dead hair should be plucked out once or twice a year. Show dogs require much more grooming. This breed sheds little to no hair.
No significant health problems in this breed.

The Dandie Dinmont Terrier requires a firm yet gentle hand, as they can be stubborn at times. However, training is relatively simple with this intelligent breed. Does not do well with obedience training. Short attention span.
