The West Highland White Terrier (Westie) is a small, well-balanced, hardy terrier, exhibiting good showmanship; it is an elegant looking dog with a beautiful, shiny white coat and bright, button eyes, shaggy eyebrows and a black nose. Westies are intelligent and learn quickly, they love human companionship and will play with their family indoors or outdoors. Their size makes them great for an apartment, but they are just as at home in the country. The West Highland White Terrier makes great companions for children of all ages, which is why it is one of the most popular breed of dogs today. In this program, Mac MacMillan, a championship show judge, joins veterinarian Bryan Pooley and animal behaviorist Claire Arrowsmith to take viewers step-by-step through all the stages of West Highland White Terrier ownership, including: what to look for in a breeder, choosing the right puppy from a litter, puppy-proofing your home, transporting your Westie, what to do when you get home, toilet training, puppy's first visit to the vet, exercise routines, the importance of socialization and training, and taking your Westie abroad. 07/10DE IJSCA 50 min.
