Choosing A Small Dog – Terriers

For most folks, the decision to buy a small dog is predicated by the fact that they only have a small backyard, or live in an apartment. Yet while lap dogs are very popular these days, there are also those that prefer the mannerisms of larger dogs. For the latter group, who like the temperament of larger dogs but cannot get one, small terrier dogs may be the answer. These little dogs look just like smaller versions of their cousins, yet they are not submissive like a lap dog.

Small terriers are, actually, quite the opposite of submissive. They are feisty, strong-willed, self-confident dogs that are tenacious and fearless. Because of this they need an owner who knows how to be ‘top-dog’, so they always know their place in the ‘pack’. This is not the dog to get if you can’t be firm and assertive when it’s necessary. And you can’t let any situation develop, even when you’re playing, when your dog gets to win, even for a moment. Most terriers will challenge their owner at some point anyway, even if you do everything right. But if you don’t, you set up some potentially disruptive behaviour in your terrier.

Terriers are fantastic dogs. They are very happy and affectionate with their humans. If they’re socialized properly they should be fine with the household cat, although all other cats will be prey. This is because terriers have a high prey drive, so if you have young kids and you have or want a terrier, you should always supervise them together.

You can see the many small breed terriers below

  •  Welsh Terrier 
  •  Irish Terrier
  •  Scottish Terrier 
  •  Smooth Fox Terrier
  •  Border Terrier 
  •  Cairn Terrier 
  •  West Highland White Terrier 
  •  Norwich Terrier and Norfolk Terrier 
  •  Yorkshire Terrier 
  •  Australian Terrier 
  •  Toy Manchester Terrier 
  •  Manchester Terrier 
  •  Miniature Bull Terrier
  •  Sealyham Terrier
     Kerry Blue Terrier 
  •  Boston Terrier 
  •  Dandie Dinmont Terrier

Of course, even though terriers have the above characteristics in common, the various breeds have their own particular qualities. And the differences extend beyond how they look, to their personality Some breeds require more grooming than others, even within the terrier group. That can be an important consideration when choosing a dog.
