Is a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier the Right Dog Breed for You?
Wheatens are cheerful and intelligent. They tend to be calmer than the typical terrier and can be more obedient and amendable to training. They are good with children and a good family pet. They are alarm barkers. They are not trustworthy off leash and have a moderate prey drive, which can predispose them to chasing cats and other small pets. Like most terriers they require a fair amount of activity and exercise to prevent boredom driven destructive behaviors. Moderate grooming needs.
