Choosing the Best Dog Food for an Overweight Border Terrier

The Border Terrier originated from the Dandie Dinmont Terrier and the Bedlington Terrier in England in the late 18h century. The Border Terrier has become a beloved family pet and today generally does not engage in the hunting activities for which it was bred. As such, owners need to be mindful of the proper type and quantity of dog food for this breed.

Bred to chase fox into their holes in the colder climate of northern England, the Border Terrier's coat offers protection from the elements. In the late 18th century mounted hunters prized the Border Terrier's ability to chase fox which had gone to ground. While they were adept at killing rodents and hunting fox, they were also known to overcome otters and badgers as well. This working terrier sports a wiry coat ideal for protection from the harsh Northumberland elements. The Border Terrier was the chosen breed for the riders in the elite Border Hunt in Northumberland. This cheerful and intelligent terrier is easy to train and responds best to a gentle hand. Historically, the Border Terrier was left to fend for its own meals and most likely enjoyed a diet of hunting spoils and barn vermin.
