Charlie has been with our family for 9 years. He has been the most obedient, fast learning best friend we could of asked for. I got him when I was in middle school, and For 5 years he would wait out side at 3:30 waiting for my bus till I got home. Charlie was so easy to train, my parents made me train him and I was only 12, and has never had an accident since. Charlie got to watch me at all my sporting events and went with me to college. Now being 21, an adult, I love him just the same, if... (read more)

I love love love my beautiful blue and tan border terrier dog. I have had him since he was 8 weeks old, and now he is seven. He is with me 99% of the time, coming to work with me in my florists shop, sitting in his bed next to the radiator, wandering about and watching us work. At the moment he is sleeping between my feet on a furry pouffe. He doesnt bark, unless its at the pigeons in the garden, very low moult, lets me clean his teeth and do his claws with no fuss, and I have never had to... (read more)

Our "Darby" has all border terrier characterists "in spades" Strong willed and at 5 months, still argumentative, but listens when we get his attention. Friendly, and learns well with consistent teaching and "managing" Measured discipline works well, harsh discipline evokes the fight and retaliation instinct and nipping. We love him dearly, and fiercely defend borter terriers as a breed, but not for small children. (read more)

Since 1989 I have been a Border Terrier Owner, or should I say they have owned me! I have owned 4 in all and my mother has had 2 of her own. All 6 have been fantastic dogs but they have all had their own characters so you might get one that is easy to train or you might not. I feel that this also applies to their coats and you might get one that is difficult to handstrip successfully. What I can say is that all of them have been great with adults/children. Sadly, 3 of them were diagnosed... (read more)

My husband got Anna for me for my b-day & i was 6 months pregnant. We chose a border terrier because they are family dogs and great with children. Well... Anna exceeded my expectations!! I have had dogs all my life and she is by far the greatest dog I have ever had or even have been in contact with. She has been at my sons side from the day he was born (NEVER JEALOUS). My son is 22 months now and they are best friends, play all the time and even when my son gives her big hugs and... (read more)

Let's be reasonable here. Border Terriers are terriers. They need secure boundaries from day one. I have two--each has their good points and bad. They have accepted that they must leave my chickens alone, yet I would never trust either of them around a cat. They love children but one can be a bit too rambunctious even at seven years old. One loves other dogs, the other does not. My male is protective of the home (wish he weren't). One thing is certain, they are very good house dogs. ... (read more)

we have had our Border Terrier "Tally" for twelve years - we love her to bits. She is a great guard dog, brilliant friend to all, great with kids and never nasty. I studied lots of breeds over a period of two years before I decided on a Border Terrier and I am glad that we did.
My Border now has cushings disease and we are controlling it with drugs - can not cure it.
So it is sad to say that in the near future we will be getting another dog and it will be a Border Terrier!
Our Tally... (read more)

Border terriers make an absolutely ideal pet. Excellent all round dogs. They are fun loving and very very social. Great with children and other dogs. My dog is great with farm animals and will not chase them. Tend to avoid muddy puddles preferring to walk around rather than in. These dogs like attention and are easy to train. My dog likes to run and I take her on a 5 mile run 3 times weekly. They are small - so small cheaper diet, and smaller poo's. She took a while to house train - being as... (read more)

Scout is 10 months and we have had him since he was 12 weeks. Our previous dog, a cocker spaniel, passed away a year ago. Scout is a really fantastic dog and has become a really important part of the family. A real character and great fun, loveable but independent minded as well. He will go off in the house to find his own space a lot and is not constantly following you around like our cocker was. He needs plenty of exercise and we try to walk him for at least 3 miles a day but he... (read more)

We had a border for 6 months before he had an accident and passed away, but within the 4 months we had him around, it left me devastated to lose him!
Although tricky to train at first, providing you use a firm voice (and a not so firm hand due to their size, as i discovered after trainign my border collie), initial problems flatten out within days.
In the next two weeks we will be taking on another border terrier from the same breeder. I thought I'd always have border collies, but this... (read more)

Tallula is the first dog we have owned and I feel that we have missed out a lot of years as dog owners. We all love her to bits and she really feels part of the family. Excellent with our children and loves to play and be part of their circle of friends. Obedient to a point but she is only seven months old so we are hoping this will improve. Great off the laed and comes back to us when called 2 out of 3 times. Best thing we have ever bought!!! (read more)

In my opinion this breed is the perfect dog for a young family. Posy only ever went to the vets twice, the 2nd was to be put to sleep. No expensive vets bills. They are so clever that training the is easy. (read more)

My little girl is clever, intelligent, loves all the family. Plays with the grandchildren. All the family love her she is very social with other dogs and not at all aggressive. Overall our Border is the best dog with have ever had. She is faithful, loves to run free on the beach but will always come back to our side. She will sit and stay come when called. I have noticed a little willfulness which isn't bad. I have to spell words now as she knows what I am saying.
I would recommend this... (read more)

Rather annoying little hound jumps up at visitors constantly jumping up on the sofa when we have guests round.
The only reason we have this dog is because we are looking after it for some one who is having a hip operation.
I will stick to my good old collies in future! (read more)

Our family and home would not be complete without our Border Terrier. He's very sociable, loves everybody and most other dogs and is great with children. He loves to be by my side or at least near me at all times. Always up for a long walk, particularly the beach. Loves to play and still has a mad half hour every day which always makes us smile. Borders are never aggressive with people but are excellent little guard dogs who fear nothing. They have real feelings and will go in a huff if... (read more)

If you have got a young family but want a dog to complete it, then the Border Terrier is the choice. They will play and fight with the kids (sometimes mine thinks he is one of them). They are very astute and attentive and always good natured.
If mine is anything to go by they are just a wonderful family pet. (read more)

Our female border terrier is the love of our lives! We needed a small dog, portable, but athletic enough to keep up on daily runs, hikes, or bike rides. She does all that but will sleep in to 11am if we're still in bed. Good natured, not aggressive at all, and the best all around dog you could hope for. (read more)

Border Terriers are a fantastic breed! Ours Border terrier is a much treasured member of our household. He is very loving and gentle with children. The only problem is he can sometimes be a little feisty with bigger dogs. I think then he thinks he is a big dog himself. (read more)

Having read the first two reviews I feel obliged to write my own.
The first Border Terrier we bought is a Red Grizzle. His coat is a beautiful red-dye type of colour, and well, how can I put it. A daddy's dog that follows me everywhere. Being disabled he will happily lay next to me on my bed for the entire day. A very very laid back dog.
After we lost our other dog (German Shepherd) we all pined as expected. But the Terrier was extremely depressed, so we bought another Border Terrier. This... (read more)

Border terriers are a popular breed and rightly so. They are said to be a large dog in a small body. A recent study by Which magazine rated them 2nd in suitability as a pet. My Borders are super dogs, great with children and very good fun. They also act as pest controllers in my semi-rural area. (read more)

We have had a border terrier for 2 years and love him dearly. Borders are often described as big dogs in small dogs' bodies and this is very apt. He loves running and long walks, but is equally happy curled up on a lap or in front of the fire. Not the brightest of animals, but definitely loving. (read more)
