Personality and Traits:Silky Terrier dogs are very hardy, have oodles of charm and personality, are ever curious and quite energetic. They are a very sociable dog and enjoy the company of family and friends.
They especially like being "numero uno" getting lots of attention, but they are so cute they usually get what they want and nobody minds!
Silkies are considered to be very intelligent and easy to obedience
train if an owner uses a gentle and kind approach - otherwise they can be stubborn. Housetraining will
take a bit more diligence as they are quite elusive if you are not paying close attention to them.
Their curiosity and energy, combined with a terrier nature, can be directed toward digging - especially if bored. Although they are self-absorbed little dogs, they have a mighty instinct to protect and generally make good watchdogs.
Health issues associated with the breed include epilepsy, collapsed trachea, and luxating patella.
Activity Level:Silkies enjoy lots of play and exercise, but they are adaptable if you can't keep up with them! A daily walk will be much enjoyed and is really the ideal for a healthy pet. They do need to be walked on a harness due to their delicate tracheas.
Space Needs:The Silky Terrier dog will get along well in almost any type of accommodation. As long as he is allowed to freely run around the house, he doesn't need an additional outside play area, but it is always a plus for potty breaks and a breath of fresh air.
Children :This breed gets along best with older children who are more in tune with their playfulness and are considerate of their small size.
Whatever the case, it is always wise to have an adult supervise activities between children and family pets, no matter what the breed.
Elderly:Silky Terrier dogs make delightful companions for the elderly or more sedentary individual. Their exercise needs are not demanding and they love to get attention - including regular back scratches!
