Norwich Terrier

Norwich Terrier
Norwich Terrier
The Norwich Terrier is a native breed to Norfolk, England, although they are called Norwich Terriers. This lovable and feisty little dog was first registered with the British Kennel Club in the 1930s. There are two similar breeds, one with drop ears, and one with pricked ears. In 1964 the British Kennel Club divided the two breeds and we now know them today as Norwich Terriers (pricked ears) and Norfolk Terriers (drop ears).


The life span of the Norwich is well over 10 years, but some have been known to live up to 15 years.


The Norwich Terrier is a very powerful, strong and self-willed little dog with plenty of energy, so if you are thinking of buying a Norwich make sure you will have time to spend walking and exercising it. To the new owner your Norwich will be friendly and loyal and they are very easy to train.


Norwich Terriers are very adaptable little dogs and will get on well with other family pets.


The coat is coarse, straight, lying close to the body, generally short and smooth on top of the head and ears, longer and rougher around the neck forming a ruff. A daily grooming with a solid comb is best for your Norwich's coat to keep it free from knots and to help pull the dead hair out.


If you are not the boss then your Norwich will be – so beware! Your Norwich loves tearing around the garden with the children or they will just simply relax on your chair with you.


If you have decided that the Norwich Terrier is the dog for you and you realise, that it can be bossy around other pets, contact one of the groups listed below:
