Patterdale Characteristics

Their temperament is quite similar to that of a Jack Russel. They have a great deal of energy and need a lot of attention and walks. If they don't get enough intellectual stimulation and exercise then their behaviour can become destructive or aggressive.

Most terriers are sweet dogs and Patterdales are no exception. However, you do need to make sure that the abundance of energy is exerted in a positive manner. Otherwise, your pup can become bored and destructive, which is very bad for your furniture and wardrobe.

Since Patterdale Terriers form a strong bond with their human and family, which means they don't really like being left alone. If left for a long time, it can lead to your dog having separation anxiety. The only way they know how to relieve stress is by being noisy and destructive.
