General Information On Westies

 

Westies were bred to hunt otters, foxes and vermin. They share their ancestry with the Scottie, Cairn and Dandie Dinmont terriers. From the rough-coated terrier stock in Scotland, white whelps were selected to form this breed. Records show that James 1, King of England in the 1620´s requested some ´little white earth dogges´ out of Argyleshire in Scotland and these were possibly Westies! Col Malcolm of Poltalloch, Argyleshire, accidentally shot and killed his favourite terrier (a dark coloured one) and vowed from then on only to have white dogs. He may have been the originator of the Westie but at that time they were called Poltalloch Terriers. The Duke of Argyll´s estate at Dumbartonshire was called Roseneath and in the 19th century, Westies were known as Roseneath Terriers in honour of his patronage and interest. In the first organised dog shows in the late 1800´s they were known as White Scottish Terrier until 1904 when they were classified under the name of West Highland White Terrier.

 

Westies are intelligent but can be rather naughty so remain consistent in their training.

 

All pigmentation should be black. The head should be slightly domed with a distinct stop. The teeth should be large for the size of the dog with a regular scissor bite. The eyes should be set well apart, medium-sized and as dark as possible. The ears should be small, erect and carried firmly with short and smooth hair. The neck should be muscular and sufficiently long merging into nicely sloping shoulders. The body should be compact with a level back. The front legs should be short, muscular and straight; the hind legs short, muscular and sinewy. The forefeet should be larger than the hind, round, strong and thickly padded and covered with short harsh hair. The hind feet should be smaller and thickly padded. The tail should be longish, as straight as possible with no feathering and carried jauntily. On no account should tails be docked.

 

Westies are cheeky, confident and affectionate characters. They are alert and courageous, making them good guard dogs. They can also be cunning and stubborn but are totally loyal to their families. They make excellent playmates for children both indoors and outdoors because they can withstand rough play and get on reasonably well with others of their breed. However, they must be introduced to cats when they are young as they will chase them once they get older. Early social training is imperative if they have to live with other dogs as they can be rather dominant.

 

Westies´ coats are hard so they must not be bathed too often. When the dogs get dirty it is best to let the mud dry on them and brush it off when dry. The coat needs to be hand plucked two or three times a year by a professional groomer. A weekly groom is all that is needed to get rid of the loose hairs.

 

27/09/2017 Thank you so much for your prompt and helpful reply to my request for fabric samples. I ordered some of your seat pads a few years ago and they are as good as when I first had them. I have now changed the kitchen and really need to be sure of the colour of the cushions before proceeding with another order. Marilyn, Stonesfield

22/09/2017 Seat Pads were delivered yesterday, unfortunately I was out but card left and collected from PO today. Thank you very much, I am delighted with them! May, Coalbridge

08/09/2017 Thank you for the personal attention to detail you've shown in handling this somewhat unconventional order. It is rare in today's business world and I commend your company.
