When a puppy Sealyham is very active, however, as it grows, it becomes lazy and is often referred to as “the couch potato of the terrier world.” They love to lie here and there and take naps. It displays a good sense of humor along with the characteristics of a terrier i.e determination, sensitivity, alertness, inquisitiveness and good spirit. He adores his family and remains devoted. He does not like to be kept aloof and would love to snuggle up close to you. Moreover, he gets along well with children. Training it is not a piece of cake but once trained is quite obedient. Normally a quiet dog, it is wary of strangers and will bark to announce their presence. He gets along well with other dogs and moreover it is adaptable and may live anywhere whether an apartment or a farm. Grooming of this dog is even easier if you cut his coat short every few months and hence would only need to be brushed. However, if you groom his coat to the breed standard then it requires daily brushing.
