Behaviour and Personality

This dog may like to bark, however, which is an attribute that it can pick up from the Westie side. Owners should be prepared to walk with these dogs fairly regularly (a daily walk should be enough exercise to suit their needs), and train them from an early age to prevent "Small Dog Syndrome". The Silkland Terrier may grow to around 10 inches and weigh 10-15 pounds.
