Norwich Terrier Dog Temperament

The Norwich terrier, like the Norfolk, is a true terrier at heart, always ready for adventure and excitement. He is a hunter and may chase small animals. He is a pert, independent, amusing — but sometimes challenging — companion, best suited for people with a sense of adventure and humor.

Norwich Terrier Dog Care

The Norwich needs to stretch his legs with a good walk or short run every day. He especially likes combining a run with a chance to explore, but any such off-leash expeditions must be done only in a safe area. He is better suited as a house dog with yard access. His wiry coat needs combing one to two times weekly, plus stripping of dead hairs three to four times a year.
