Lancashire Heeler


Lancashire Heeler The Lancashire Heeler breed looks like the Welsh Corgi, quite possibly one of its progenitors. Lancashire Heelers' herding instincts are strong. The breed has the tendency to nip people's heels. This tendency is from centuries of nipping at the heels of cattle--but the habit can be trained out of these dogs. The Lancashire Heeler's Behavior Source: the Dog Breed Info website Recommended for: pet, working dog The Lancashire Heeler dog breed makes for excellent companions. Lancashire Heelers are known for doing their best to be considerate with older children. The dogs are known as friendly toward those they know, but alert and wary of strangers. Lancashire Heeler dogs make good ratters and have superior strength for their size. They might be difficult to train but it is possible. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.
