Is A Terrier Right For You?

A Terrier in one word? Personality! They are feisty, tenacious and energetic. 
They range in size from very small to quite large. Their ancestors were bred to hunt vermin and many still have that same authoritative personality.
They make wonderful pets but require an owner who has the determination and patience to match their dogs character. While the different breeds may vary in coat the majority have a wire coat but all the coats require some degree of maintenance and commitment from the owners. Being a Terrier owner is not easy! I requires a sense of humor but for the right person you couldn't ask for a better companion.

 


Grooming

Please be aware that even if the standard states minimal grooming, most coated terriers still require some skill to make them appear as they do on these pages.  Except for the smooth coated breeds, smooth Fox Terriers, Manchesters, the Bull and Staffy breeds, your dog will need to be groomed,  either by yourself, your breeder or a professional groomer skilled at grooming hard coated breeds.  

If you choose a soft coated breed such as the Soft Coated Wheaten, Kerry Blue or Bedlington, to attain their looks they require shaving and scissoring.  The hard coated breeds are hand plucked or stripped to make them appear as they do on these pages.

It is not just for esthetics that we groom these breeds this way, but also for the health of the dog.  Please take the time to read this article on grooming BEFORE you choose a coated breed as a pet.
