Bred to hunt badgers and foxes, the Scottish Terrier is an independent, intelligent, and stubborn breed. They are a loyal breed and thanks to their terrier background, make excellent watchdogs. You’ll always know when there is a stranger near with a Scottish Terrier! They can be aloof with strangers, though. They are a brave and devoted breed that love to be around their family. They do well with children but smaller children should be supervised, as Scottish Terriers will stick up for themselves when being pulled at or teased. Being a terrier, they have a mind of their own and can be difficult to train (though they are intelligent). They were actually bred to work apart from their owners, so they tend to do what they think is right on their own. That is why early and consistent is an absolute necessary. Overall, the Scottish Terrier will make a wonderful companion to any family looking for an independent yet devoted family dog.
