Border Terrier Temperament And Behavior

  • Border Terriers generally get along well with other dogs and are often good with children.
  • Borders do well in task-oriented activities and have a surprising ability to jump high and run fast given the size of their legs. 
  • They are quicker to learn jumps and see-saws than weaving poles.
  • They are intelligent and eager to please.
  • Their love of people and even temperament make them fine therapy dogs, especially for children and the elderly.
  • Borders can adapt to different environments and situations well, and are able to deal with temporary change well. 
  • They will get along well with cats that they have been raised with, but may chase other cats and small animals such as mice, rabbits, squirrels, rats, and guinea pigs.
  • Borders love to sit and watch what is going on. 
  • Walks with Borders will often involve them sitting and lying in the grass to observe the environment around them. 
  • They can be stubborn when they are tired and often require short breaks to sit and observe during long walks; it can be difficult to get them moving again.
