They will easily get enough exercise just by running from room to room and in taking regular walks with you. A yard isn't necessarily for this particular breed, and if you live in the city, the Skye Terrier will still do quite well with proper care.

About this Breed

This small, good natured breed is often thought of as an elegant looking breed. The Skye Terrier has a sturdy bone structure and hard muscles that surround its body. Twice as long as it is high, the Skye Terrier sits low to the ground, but carries its long fur coat well. The fur around its face helps to both protect the mouth and eyes from outside obstacles, but also creates a feathered look that's both distinctive and graceful. Generally standing with its head help up high, the Skye Terrier trots along with a steady gait, tail dangling to the ground. The brown eyes are earnest and the darker they are, the better. The coat is well feathered ideally, and has two coats one undercoat and one outer coat. This low sitting terrier has a strong muzzle feature as well as a black nose and a jaw that sets the teeth in a scissors bite. The feet should be pointing straight forward, almost as though it were a hare. Affectionate and well-mannered, the Skye Terrier is a delightful addition to any family, but will require a lot of attention to be happy and satisfied. Playful and genuinely loving, the Skye Terrier is a breed that is suitable in most environment settings and locations.
