Favorite Scottish Terrier Comments

I have a scottie that is a bit taller than the general scottish terrier. Her name is Allee. However, she fits the breed personality perfectly! Scotties are very loyal and usually attach thereselves to one person. They are very attentive and notice everything!!! Allee even watches TV. They are actually very tough little dogs with lots of energy. Excercise them daily and you will have a much better dog! They also can get their feelings hurt easily so be careful when training.

Additional Scottish Terrier Comments
So many people are put off by the grooming issues of a Scottish Terrier. Keeping your pet Scottie combed and clean is the most important thing. Even though you might not get the polished look that a professional groomer gets, you can still achieve that "Scottie" look on your own at home. Scotties, as all dogs, thrive on love and attention. Sometimes they seem aloof, but they are fiercely loyal to their owners.
