Versatile Border Terrier
of Border Terriers enjoy doing many things with their dogs. The breed
is versatile and capable of all sorts of activities, whether formally
organized events or casual pleasures you enjoy on your own. There are
some things that Border Terriers do better than other things, some
things they exhibit great interest in and some they will not care
You need to remember that all dogs are individuals and what one may
enjoy another may not. However, Border Terriers LOVE being with their
families and a well behaved dog always makes any endeavor more fun for
Some owners enjoy taking their terriers to
earthdog tests or
into the field, others enjoy the challenge of the show or obedience
rings. You may find Borders in agility trials, tracking tests, rally
events or simply enjoying a walk around the block with their owners.
There are Borders that serve very well as therapy dogs, others who
accompany their owners jogging or hiking and others that pass the time
in a more leisurely fashion.
Some owners do many activities with their Border
Terriers, conformation, earthdog, obedience, tracking, agility or other
things. Their dogs often have titles at both ends of their names. The
BTCA National Specialty now covers several days of activities,
including conformation showing, earthdog and tracking tests,
obedience and agility trials.
Many members of the NBTC never enter their dogs
in an organized event. They simply enjoy getting together with other
owners on occasion, learning about the breed, swapping stories and
hints about care.
