Choosing the Best Dog Food for an Overweight Lakeland Terrier

It's important to have an understanding about the history of Lakeland Terriers when you are trying to choose a dog food that best fits their caloric needs. The Lakeland Terrier breed came from the Welsh Terrier breed, the old English Black and Tan Terrier, which are now extinct. They worked as farmer dogs and got a great deal of exercise daily running with other hounds in packs to protect sheep flocks from stealing foxes. If they do not continue to get exercise like running in a backyard then they are more prone to becoming overweight.

The Lakeland Terrier originated from the Lake District area in England in 1921. The Lake District area tends to get a lot of rain yearly. In 1921 farmers liked using Lakeland Terriers to run in packs to get away foxes from stealing their sheep. They were also used for rounding up other animals too. Lakeland Terriers are fearless and bold dogs and love to run so the farmer's liked using them to round up or protect them animals from prey. The Lakeland Terrier is an extremely smart breed. They learn very quickly but also get bored quickly too. The Lakeland Terrier needs to be outside as much as possible so that it can run preferably in a fenced in yard supervised. If left unsupervised they are known to dig tunnels under the fence to get out and chase squirrels or other small animals. The Lakeland Terrier stands between 13 1/2 to 14 1/2 inches in height. They are small to midsize dogs. They are very feisty and playful. Back in the 1920's the Lakeland Terriers would eat meat or non meat items like table scraps from their owners. They were fed whatever in order to keep them alive and active.
