Originating in the damp and chilly climate around the cliffs of northern England, the Bedlington Terrier has a strong coat and resilient disposition. While originally coveted for their rate and vermin hunting skills, the Bedlington Terrier was also a prized breed as far back as the late 18th century for the British gentry. The pinnacle of fame for the Bedlington Terrier was first prize at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in 1948. From afar, the Bedlington Terrier can be mistaken for a lamb given its white wired coat. Agile and swift, the Bedlington Terrier is prized as a racing dog that also excels at multiple sports. The Bedlington Terrier is adept as a hunter on both land and in water and adapts well to both city living and rural farm life.

Left to their own resources for centuries, many Bedlington Terriers survived on barn vermin and hunting spoils. Today, the Bedlington Terrier is a cherished pet for many families across northern Europe and the United States. This head strong breed does have a tendency towards stubbornness and needs to be trained at an early age with a firm hand. In 1948 the revered Bedlington Terrier boasted best in show in the Westminster Kennel Club Dog show and was rewarded with photo on the cover of LIFE magazine. Very active, loyal and somewhat mischievous, the Bedlington Terrier is gentle with children but must be exercised daily either on a leash or in a fenced area. Most Bedlington Terriers today need only forage as far as the kitchen floor for a bowl full of dog food. Given their reduced activity level today, the Bedlington Terrier needs to have their dog food carefully portioned in order to maintain a healthy weight and disposition.

Spot and Tango have taken it upon themselves to help you and your overweight Bedlington Terrier find the right dog food. In order to do that, we’ll need to learn a little bit about your dog. Things like size, age, etc. will affect the nutritional needs of your dog, and so we use a proprietary questionnaire to pinpoint those needs in order to develop a suggested meal plan that can provide your overweight Bedlington Terrier with complete nutrition, while still helping them to lose weight.
