The Terriers

The Terrier Group consists of most, but not all, terrier breeds. The list is mostly the same across the major English-speaking all-breed dog registries or Kennel clubs (NTC, AKC, ANKC, CKC, KC (UK), KUSA, UKC and NZKC).

Dogs from this Group have distinctive energetic terrier personality whose sizes range from fairly small (Norfolk, Cairn, West Highland White Terrier), to the grand Airedale Terrier.

They typically have little tolerance for other animals, express attitude and they are always ready for a spirited argument and require owners with the determination to match their dogs' energetic characters.

Most dogs from this group require special grooming known as stripping in order to maintain a characteristic appearance and a lot of exercise every day.
