Notes for owners
Gentle and mild.
Thick, very little shedding Moderate Good with children/td>

The Bedlington Terrier is a good companion dog that should be socialized into the family very early.  It is good with children and other pets once properly trained and socialized.  It will not get along with another dominant dog.  The Bedlington is fast and needs plenty of  exercise, and can do well as an apartment dog if it gets enough exercise and attention.  They shed very little but do require professional grooming on a regular basis. Can be “other pet” aggressive.  Hypoallergenic.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA (, and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
