Above Average (Rating 4/5)


Wheaties are intelligent little dogs and they learn new things very quickly, but this means they can learn both the good and the bad. They can be a little stubborn at times and because they have an independent streak in them, they can be a little harder to train than other dogs. As such, it takes a bit of patience and understanding to train one of these intelligent, high energy dogs. The key is to keep a Wheatie as focussed as possible and not to make a training session too long because they do so much better when they are given shorter training sessions more often, especially when still young.

They are sensitive terriers by nature and as such they do not answer well to any sort of harsh correction or heavier handed training methods. They do respond extremely well to positive reinforcement which always brings the best out of these lovely little dogs. It's essential for Wheatie puppies to be well socialised from a young enough age for them to grow up to be well-behaved and happy mature dogs. This has to involve introducing a puppy to lots of new situations, noises, people, other animals and dogs once they've been fully vaccinated.
