Whatever your dog preference is, you are sure to find terrier
dogs among the candidates for a pal. You'll get energy you want with little grooming and added wit.
Basically, bred for hunting and killing vermin, Terrier dogs
are now known to offer wide spectrum of features and characters that you might find lovable. They are not as
cuddly as toy dogs (while there are some terrier dogs in the toy and companion dog brackets) and they may not be
as intelligent like other breeds but they set off these lacks with various things that only they can offer.
Let us discuss in brief some of the terrier dog types that
you may find interesting:
Wheaten Terrier: Less aggressive but definitely not timid. This best describes
Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers. They are definitely alert and very spirited, but when the call for steadiness
arrives, they are sure to show you some air of confidence and steady disposition.
This dog type too is gifted with intelligence which makes
them very responsive with obedience training.
Parson Russell Terrier is a dog type that exhibits boldness, cleverness, affection
and exuberant disposition. While many may find this a playful pal, it is still not advisable for everyone to
take Parson Russell home. In fact, formal obedience training is a must for owners since this dog type is more
likely to display mischievousness and too much playfulness that make this a very independent pet. For people
with active lifestyles and those who can tolerate explorative disposition, this scamp is the best for you.
The Norwich Terrier, on the other hand, is a type of dog that resulted from
breeding small Terriers with other smaller breeds, possibly Yorkshire Terriers. Maintenance of Norwich Terrier
is minimal and they are content with modest living quarters. They have active disposition though and can be
affectionate and fearless. Additionally, they are also known to display stocky and happy personalities which
make them ideal pals.
Norfolk Terrier; Much like the Norwich Terriers, Norfolk Terriers are also
well-spirited, fearless, charming and always ready for game. While both may have some similar physical
characteristics, Norfolks can still be distinguished through their folds in the ears.
Kerry Blue Terrier: Basically workman-like dogs, Kerry Blue Terriers are
excellent watchdogs and work well in farm settings. This dog got its name from its blue-shade coat colour which
was originally black during puppyhood.
Wire Fox Terriers are of great interest since they display power through its
excellent endurance capabilities and speed. Alertness and quick movements are the dominant expressions of this
dog type. It is advisable though that the owner trains this dog and should be given enough doses of daily
Meanwhile, Smooth Fox Terriers are the frolic and
lively types of dogs that are ideal in both country and city living. Displaying intelligence and cleverness,
this dog makes good trainees and must be well credited by that. They are also likely to show great affection
towards their owners.
These are just some of the many terrier dog types that can be
considered as your next pets. In general, this dog type has good dispositions and makes ideal home pets. While
some may display obscure aggressiveness, this still does not negate the fact that most types have the capacity
to develop affection and keen expression of their attachment to their owners. Be warned though that some dog
types in this breed can be very playful and should be given enough amount of attention and time during obedience
training and exercises.
