Dandie Dinmont Terrier Dog BreedOnce popular as a badger and fox hunter, the Dandie Dinmont is now kept mainly as a household pet. The size of this dog breed may reach a height of 11 inches at the top of the shoulder. The ideal weight for a Dandie Dinmont is approximately 18 pounds. He had two Dandie Dinmonts, called Charlie and Peachem. It was from Davidson that Sir Walter Scott Acquired his dogs, and indeed it was from a character in his novel called "Guy Mannering" that the breed received its name.
FeedingThe Dandie Dinmont is recommended to be fed 1/2 to 1 can of a branded meaty product (376g, 13.0 oz size), with biscuit added in equal part by volume; or 1 1/2 cupfuls of a dry, complete food mixed in proportion of 1 cup of feed to 1/2 cup of water.
Exercise RequirementThe Dandie Dinmont is an adaptable dog and will be happy outside moving around regardless if he is in action killing foxes, or enjoying a slow walk in the park. It would be unfair to keep this naturally active dog breed at home locked inside without the ability to move about.
