“In the States, In Oklahoma”

Written on: 13/05/2014

In the States, in Oklahoma; Patty's are not known. We were very fortunate to find our puppy on line. We adopted her, We thought we were saving her, but she has brought so much love and fun to our lives; We wondered who has saved who? We got her at 5 months old and she has been with us for two months. Our girl, is potty trained, she loves to play in the yard,and long walks in the quarry which is great fun. We named her Rock's Anna. Because she loves to run around the yard with rocks in her mouth… Read Full Review

“Amazing in every way”

Written on: 02/02/2014

We adopted our 1 year old Patterdale from a rescue centre a year ago and can't believe our luck. By far the best behaved, best natured and all round wonderful dog I have ever owned. He loves people of any age, although he is never fussy and always sits politely and waits for them to come to him. He has only barked three times in a year and even then only one bark each time. He loves the sofa and sitting with us to watch TV, but is also enthusiastic enough to walk the lakeland fells and run… Read Full Review

“Wee Jakey Boy”

Written on: 29/06/2013 by lellybelly (1 review written)

Well what can I say! A little hyper bundle of joy who can be a bit hard work at times but is the most loving wee guy. He is very handsome and low maintenance when it comes to grooming. Its great to see him run around the fields as he will chase almost anything that moves so only let off lead in secluded areas! An instant part of the family but loves to chew, rips soft toys to pieces! you really need to forgive him though cause he so damn cute. Can be feisty with other dogs but great with… Read Full Review

“Fell ( Patterdale) Terriers”

Written on: 25/06/2013 by dexterfishpaw (1 review written)

A lot of dog in a little package- they do not think or act like a small dog and have hearts like lions.Great with most people but can be wary of strangers initially which makes them a good house dog.I have found them pretty tolerant of other dogs, but they can & will scrap but it is normally ' handbags and 20 paces'with a lot of noise and no real malice.They love graft and we make sure we give our 2 'terrors' at least an hour a day, ideally off the lead where they can mooch about in bushes &… Read Full Review

“lovely lola”

Written on: 24/02/2013

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… Read Full Review

“My Little Firecracker!”

Written on: 25/11/2012 by cheekymonkey68 (2 reviews written)

I have a Patty, he is nearly 8, I got him from rescue and he is just fab! Toby is really smart and loves learning new things. Pattys are full of character and naughtiness. They are not for your average first time dog owner especially if you are getting them from a puppy, they do tend to have growing up phases which result in a lot of them ending up in rescue at approx 1 and 2 years old. I had no intention of getting a Patterdale Terrier, it was fate. I was fostering for a rescue and I brought… Read Full Review

“Awesome little pup”

Written on: 22/09/2012 by eyeflingpu (1 review written)

We got our patterdale at 9 weeks old and he's awesome. Had a few issues with toilet training but does pee on command word. Brilliant at training. His recall is fantastic. Loves kids but does get very excited. Hates being left alone for any amount of time. Very inquisitive especially about cats. Basically like any other pup which is lots of hard work and consistency but very worth while. Wouldn't be without him… Read Full Review

“pain in the backside”

Written on: 16/09/2012

Have had out patterdale since she was 6 weeks old and she is now 8 years old. Destroyed most things as puppy, very protective of toys. Great with children and adults. Hates other dogs. (we have another 2 so that can be difficult sometimes) Noisy, wilful and thinks shes in charge. No recall skills whatsoever. Went to dog training lessons and loved it, did everything, but was clever enough to know that at classes it was one thing, back home it was another. Shes very very intelligent. Knows… Read Full Review

“A diamond in the rough”

Written on: 30/07/2012

If I had read the 'official' breed guides to Patterdales before getting one, I would have stayed well clear! Luckily I fell in love with a handsome little black dog at the rescue kennels and never looked back. My Patt is a gentle, loving dog who would happily sleep next to you, under the covers, on his back, paws in the air if you let him! He has sooo much character and is as intelligent as they come. I have two small children and he is great with them. I would say his only downfall is that he… Read Full Review

I had my patterdale (Tia) since she was 11 months old now she is 4 and will be 5 in december. She is a brilliant dog and behaves very well. The only problems with have with her are she is scared of water and doesn't give up her toys she doesn't understand leave. Does anyone know how I can change this? She is great with other dogs, and can tell if you are upset because she will come and sit with you. She is such a loyal dog and protects us.

My PT is very good with my 16 year old cat, and she is also afraid of water. These dogs were bread to go to ground, and water is a foriegn concept. I dont know if I could be trained out of them. I agree with you 100%, mine is the best and smartest dog I have ever had!

To get her to leave her toys, I had to offer my little girl something she wanted more, usualy a tasty treat. She is very food driven, and I just keep my hand on the toy while I reach for a treat and tell her calmly to let go. It took a while, but she always left the toy in my hand to take the treat out of the other. good luck with your little one!

Hi I have a PT and she loves swimming in the river etc but hates the rain unfortunatly she doesn't like other animals either, she wont drop and leave as its the rat catcher aspect but I have got someone coming to help me deal with it. She also hates being left alone even for a second they are not easy dogs to own! But like you say very loyal to her pack and gaurds all of us with her life even if she is scared!

“Living with a Patterdale Terrier”

Written on: 17/03/2012

We rescued our farm bred Patterdale Terrier when she was just a year old. She is a fantastic pet but does not like loud noises so was not suited to farm life. She is energetic when out on her daily run but snoozes quietly at home. She is excellent with children, we have 6 grandchildren under the age of 7 and she is very gentle with them. She had one litter of puppies before we had her spayed and she was a very good mother and allowed us to handle her babies from the moment they were born… Read Full Review

I have had my patterdale from being 9 weeks old. My boyfriend spent alot of time looking on the internet for a good breeder, when he eventually found one we got the pick of a litter and we picked our Maisie.

She is now 15 months old and What can i say she is the best thing that could have happened to us, she is very well behaved, was easy to train, hasn't destroyed anything of ours (except a bit of post and… Read Full Review

“Patterdale/cross”

Written on: 23/10/2011

We have a 13 week old, had him at 8 weeks and so far he is a wonderful dog. I have 2 kids aged 6 and 9, and he is very good. We live in the country near miles of field walks so ideal for a terrier. He is very calm in the house and loves nothing more than having a snooze. My springer spaniel was (though lovely) hyperactive and crazy from a tiny age,was expecting same with this one but he`s a quiet little chap. He is crossed with a long haired JR though so i guess this changes personality… Read Full Review

Do you know of any particular reason he started this behavior? a progressive attitude change could be a sign of an injury or cancer in the dog, or it could be as simple as him not getting enough exorcise. Patterdales are meant to be working dogs, and need a job to do to be as happy and healthy as possible. If you cant trust your boy around your children, and he isn't responding to you much anymore, it's time to bring in the pro's. a Professional dog trainer will be able to pinpoint the problem, and show you (and your children) how to keep him under control

Hopefully this will be helpful. I have a 4 year old rescue Patterdale. She was scratching for a long period of time and it just got worse and worse. She would wake up in the middle of the night and just scratch her back on the bed frame. She would also chew on her feet. She started having seizures about 6 months, then 5 months and became 3 weeks apart. So we took her to the vet. We discovered that she had allergies - allergic to mites which is a difficult one. We have her on one ingredient diet, omega oils and also the vet has her on one allergy tablet per day. This really helps tremendously. The vet said the scratching seemed to trigger the seizures. It has been 5 months since we discovered these allergies and she has not had a seizure since thankfully. We treid taking her off the allergy tabelts as they are quite expensive, but she went back to frantic scratching and it is better that, than seizures. She is now a happy little Patterdale!!!
