Norwich Terrier Grooming and Breed Care

Norwich Terrier Temperament

A hardy, adaptable, and inquisitive little dog, the Norwich Terrier is a small dog with a big personality. These dogs, cousins of the Norfolk Terrier, have plenty of energy, and love to play, exercise, and have fun. Early socialization is important with the Norwich Terrier to ensure an even temperament and to reduce the risk of timidity. These dogs can be hardy, headstrong, and determined, which means that the owner needs to be assertive and confident in order to establish leadership. Therefore, the Norwich Terrier is best suited to more experienced dog owners with some knowledge of training. With the right training, the Norwich Terrier will fare well, as he is intelligent and a quick learner. Although he is suited to apartment living, the Norwich Terrier needs daily walks or a safe and secured area in which to play and exercise.

 

The Norwich Terrier can be very possessive when it comes to his food or belongings, and can be jealous of other pets. He will get along well with children that are gentle and those he has been brought up with. This breed should be introduced to cats from an early age. With strangers some Norwich Terriers will be friendly, but others may be more reserved. Those with beautiful gardens should be warned that the Norwich Terrier is a very keen digger, and if you are looking for a quiet life this may not be the ideal choice, as he also loved to bark. However, he will bark to raise an alarm too, and this makes him an effective watchdog.

Norwich Terrier Appearance

The Norwich Terrier is a sturdy, robust, and compact little dog. He has an alert and enthusiastic expression, but can look a little bewildered at times. His ears stand erect, adding to his alert appearance. The coat of the Norwich Terrier is hard and wiry, and the coloring can vary, including black and tan, wheaten, grizzle, or various shades of red. These small dogs weigh in at around 11-15 pounds, and reach around 8-10 inches in height.

Norwich Terrier Grooming

The grooming requirements for the Norwich Terrier are moderate, and the coat simply needs to be brushed once a week. The hair around his bottom will also need to be trimmed regularly for hygiene reasons. Every few months the coat of the Norwich Terrier may need to be clipped, and for show dogs the dead coat will need to be stripped. The Norwich Terrier may prove ideal for allergy sufferers, as he is a low shedder.

Norwich Terrier Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the Norwich Terrier is around 12-14 years. There are a number of health problems associated with this breed, and this includes: epilepsy, collapsing trachea, elongated palate, luxating patella, heart problems, allergies, and HD. The parents of the Norwich Terrier puppy should have OFA certificates.

Norwich Terrier History

The Norwich Terrier originates from England, and was developed as a ratter and a farm dog. Until 1964 Norfolk Terriers were also classed as Norwich Terriers, but the two were separated in the 1960s because the Norfolk Terrier has folded ears and the Norwich Terrier has erect ones.
