we promised our daughter a puppy for her birthday( like you do) looked on the internet as only wanted a small dog for a already busy home. Found patterdale advertised. when i reseached the breed i was reluctant,but took a chance. so glad i did. They are fantastic. You need to be very dominant,so that they know who is boss. But they cant do enough to please. Lola is very easy to train ( loves and treats). she is only 8 months old and can sit,stay,leave,lie down,fetch,recall,heal and many other basic commands. I would recommand this breed to all people,but beaware a previous review states that they have staff in them. That is not true, a orginal patterdale is a cross with a lakeland terrier and a other breed which cant be traced,hence that is why you cant get a kc registered british patterdale. What a shame because they deserve to be recognised. Patterdales have very original facial features not seen on other breeds,so if it has a staff or other breed head not a patterdale therefore will not have the same temperment.I could carry on praising all night but i wont.
