Scottish Dog Exhibition

Hosted and organized by the Dandie Dinmont Terrier Club of Canada you will discover the fascinating history of the first named Terrier – the Dandie Dinmont and other scottish breeds.

The Dandie Dinmont Terrier has been a distinct breed for so many centuries in the Border country between England and Scotland that its origins are shrouded in mystery, myth and legend. In the 17th century farmers kept Dandies to rid their property of badgers, foxes, weasels and otters. Unlike other terriers, whose job it was to enter the lair and bark incessantly at the prey, Dandies were bred for stealth. Their job was to bravely go underground and remove the animal from its lair. As a result, the Dandie is very quiet and relaxed.
