Blood Sugar Scent Discrimination Started: We are prepping the puppies to be able to
detect Blood Sugar levels in people with Diabetes and Hypoglycemia. This training starts at around 3 days of age because their
sense of smell is so strong. Even if a puppy doesn’t go to a working home this still prepares them to be wonderful,
Highland White Terriers or Westies were developed in the high mountains of west Scotland and claim ancestry to the Scotch Terrier. For a long time, the Westie
was interbred with the Cairn, and white ones were simply called Westies, while the colored ones were called Cairns. The Westie is thought to be around 300 years old. West Highland White Terriers were originally bred to hunt vermin, fox and badger, and be distinguished from the prey when hunting. They were bred specifically to be white so the hunter wouldn't accidentally shoot the dog
instead of the prey. This was decided by Malcom of Polltalloch, Argyleshire, Scotland when he accidentally shot and killed his favorite dark-colored terrier.
The breed may have been started by this person, as this type of dog was kept
by Malcom's family since the 18th century.
West Highland White
Terriers are game and hardy little terriers, which are easy to train. They are fairly friendly toward strangers and get along
well with children. They are lively and extremely self-assured toward other dogs, but will not pick fights with other dogs,
if their owners know how to display proper leadership. They may chase a cat for fun, and need to be corrected if they do attempt
this. Robust, friendly, cocky and spunky, Westies just love companionship. Despite its size, they make a very good watchdog.
These little dogs are easy to travel with. The Westie needs proper training to be taught not to dig and bark as this can be
one of their traits. Because of their very strong personality do not allow the Westie
to develop Small Dog Syndrome.

little dogs need a daily walk. Play will take care of a lot of their exercise needs, however, as with all breeds, play will
not fulfill their primal instinct to walk. Dogs that do not get to go on daily walks are more likely to display behavior problems.
They will also enjoy a good romp in a safe open area off lead, such as a large fenced in yard.
harsh, straight, short-haired double coat is fairly easy to groom and sheds little to no hair. Simply brush regularly with
a stiff bristle brush or slicker brush. Brushing should keep the coat clean, so bathe only when necessary. The whole coat
should be trimmed about every four to eight weeks.
About 15 or more years.
