We have been searching for a dog recently and read about different dog breeds that steered me towards investigating the Welsh Terrier. Does anyone have any first hand experience with this breed? Most internet sites list them as hard to train and I was wondering if this was the case and what your experience has been with this breed? We are looking for a small/medium sized dog that will do well in the house. I do not want a "fancy" dog that we can't take on hikes in the woods or down the to river swimming. The dog must be affectionate and want to be part of the family. Not like the cat we have that wants to be by itself all the time and could care less about us. I want a dog that we can train to stick close by on walks or while out away from people. So, good with kids, small to medium sized, good in the house, able to keep up on walks/hikes, has to be "cute" for the wife, able to train the basics, affectionate and loyal, bark as a watchdog, are the criteria. Non-shedding is a plus. Thanks for any insight.
