Norfolk Terrier Grooming and Breed Care

Norfolk Terrier Temperament

The Norfolk Terrier is an outgoing, energetic, and playful creature. These dogs are generally sociable and friendly, but can be very independent, headstrong, and possessive, which makes them best suited to those with some experience of dog ownership. Although small, the Norfolk Terrier has plenty of courage and personality. Training shouldn't prove too difficult, as these are intelligent dogs and are quick to learn. These little dogs love to dig, so prepare to be horrified if you have the perfect garden. They may also bark a lot, so if you are after total peace and quiet then this may not be the pet for you. The Norfolk Terrier is an inquisitive creature, and has plenty of energy. You will need to ensure that he gets plenty of exercise and play. This breed will adapt well to apartment living, but will need a safe and secured place to play and exercise, or daily walks.


Early socialization is important with the Norfolk Terrier to ensure that he does not become overly timid. A well socialized Norfolk Terrier gets along well with gentle children and those he has been brought up with. These dogs also get along okay with most other pets, although they can become jealous of them. He should not be trusted around rabbits and smaller animals. Some Norfolk Terriers will be friendly when it comes to strangers, but others may be more wary depending on the personality of the dog. The Norfolk Terrier's tendency to bark and raise an alarm makes him an effective watchdog. With the right training and early socialization the Norfolk Terrier makes a charming companion and a loving family pet.

Norfolk Terrier Appearance

The Norfolk Terrier is a small, compact, and sturdy dog. He has a sweet and sometimes bewildered expression, and his small ears hand in folds to the side of his head. The coat of the Norfolk Terrier is straight and wiry, and the color can vary including grizzle, black and tan, red (various shades), or wheaten. These small dogs weigh in at around 11-15 pounds, and reach around 8-10 inches in height.

Norfolk Terrier Grooming

The Norfolk Terrier required moderate grooming, and his coat should be brushed on a weekly basis. For hygiene reasons the hair around his bottom needs to be trimmed regularly. The coat can be clipped every few months, although for show dogs the dead coat will need to be stripped. When properly groomed this dog is a low shedder, and may therefore be well suited to those with allergies.

Norfolk Terrier Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the Norfolk Terrier is around 12-14 years. This is largely a health and hardy breed, but there are a few health problems to look out for. This includes heart problems, hip problems, luxating patella, sensitivity to anesthetic, and collapsing trachea. A heart exam is recommended when selecting your Norfolk Terrier puppy.

Norfolk Terrier History

The Norfolk Terrier originates from Britain, and was bred in the twentieth century to hunt vermin. This breed was once grouped with the Norwich Terrier, but the two were separated in the 1960s because of differences with the ear carriage.
