Welcome to the Caledonian Dandie Dinmont Terrier Club. We are a friendly, sociable & forward thinking group based in Scotland (the home of the Dandie Dinmont Terrier!) focused on promoting our fantastic breed, encouraging new folks & supporting your Dandie journey. Our website has loads of interesting information for those considering getting involved with the breed & we are always happy to advise where we can!

Our site is kept up to date with new features, event dates & results, club news & of course - our Dandie Gallery! Enjoy exploring our site, please contact us with any questions & in true Dandie fashion pop back often!

Nicknamed "the gentleman of the terrier family" Dandies are intelligent, lively, friendly, hardy & good natured. With big personalities, small size & moderate exercise requirement they are equally suitable as super city slickers, providing (like all dogs!) they have outdoor access & somewhere fun to play.

Sadly the dandie seems to have fallen out of trend & the breed is now vulnerable with on average less than one hundred puppies born per year.

Our club offers several ways to support this smashing wee dog, with events, shows, seminars, social outings & annual membership! To find out more, pop over to the Members Club Page.

On average we host or are involved with around seven dandie dedicated & associated events (showing & just for fun!), we also support Scottish Shows in addition to representing our breed at world famous international showcases such as Crufts!

See our Gallery Page for the latest photos & fall in love with this charismatic, fun & historic breed.
