Training &Temperament

Sealy popularity with pet owners has waned since those heady days—puzzling, considering the breed’s many fine qualities. “They could be one of the best-kept secrets in dogs,” says one Sealy lover. Despite their rep as the bruiser among short-legged terriers, Sealys are lots of fun: cute, funny, affectionate, and trainable (in an independent-terrier way). Their confidence and big-dog bark make Sealys excellent watchdogs, and their friendliness is put to good use as therapy workers in nursing homes and children’s hospitals.

Did You Know?

The Sealyham Terrier was originally bred in Wales.

Sources believe the Sealyham was produced from crosses between the Corgi, Dandie Dinmont, West Highland White, Wire-Haired Fox Terriers, the Bull Terrier and perhaps even some hounds.

The English Kennel Club first recognized the Sealyham breed in 1910 when Sealyhams were first shown in a Kennel Club sponsored Championship dog Show.

The Sealyham Terrier derives its name from Sealy Ham, Haverfordwest, Wales, the estate of Captain John Edwards, who developed from obscure ancestry a strain of dogs noted for their prowess in quarrying badger, fox and otter.

The Sealyham's first recorded show appearance was in 1903 at a local affair in Wales and the breed was first imported to the U.S. in 1911.
