Unlike the Airedale or the Welsh Terrier, Lakeland Terriers come in a wide variety of colors. When Lakies are in a hand stripped coat, the color of their coat is richer. When the dogs are clippered, the colors fade. This is because the hairs are richly colored on the tips, but have a light color at the base. Cutting the hairs removes the colored portion of the hair and leaves the coat very diluted and softer and/or curlier in texture. Interestingly, before the Lakeland was officially named for an area of England, it was known by other names, including the Colored Working Terrier.
