Take me home!
talk about the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier.
We recommend any prospective buyer read
your road to find a Wheaten you will
by most breeders, “we match out puppies to the new owner”. The puppy’s physical
appearance makes it extremely difficult to differentiate one from the
other. We tagged all our puppies at birth. It is their personalities that
separate them. We will make every attempt to continue in the guidelines
set forth by the SCWT Club of
Wheatens love affection. They are
easy to train and thrive
in a structured environment. We advise all new owners to
pursue Puppy Obedience Classes They
also love their toys. Yes, more than one. We have always made sure there
are plenty of toys around to avoid, “I wish you hadn’t chewed that
up.” We keep our toys in a wicker basket in the same location.
Wheatens respond much better to
praise as opposed to scolding. They want nothing more than to please and
to be rewarded whether it is with a special treat or just a special hug.
We are firm believers in crate training. Your Wheaten needs his/hers own space. The crate becomes their safe place. Never leave a puppy unattended. They are excellent at getting into all kinds of trouble! When you leave the house, CRATE! Put them in the crate at night; let them outside first thing in the morning to do their business. Remember an unattended puppy will squat as soon as you turn your back.
Grooming and Trimming.
This you must be dedicated to. We recommend brushing on a daily
basis, especially as their coat grows. A skinned wheaten is not a pretty
sight! This will happen if matting gets ahead of you. Find a reputable
groomer; ask if they do Wheaten cuts. Set up a regular schedule. Nail
trimming, we leave to the Vet. Wheatens have black nails which makes
clipping rather touchy, it is difficult to see where the vein in the nail
ends. If you clip the vein you will have a very bloody mess.
Wheatens are noted for their no-shedding and being hypo-allergenic.
Small Children and Wheatens.
Jumping must be discouraged at a very young age. These guys never tire of
playing and they don’t realize they have grown and their strength has
too. They will inadvertently knock a small child to the ground. Both need
supervision when together. What one doesn’t think of the other will!
Be cautious of grocery store dog foods.
These foods contain nothing but fillers. Foods that we have found suitable
are Eukanuba, Science Diet, and
