Tenterfield Terriers are sturdy little terriers with lots of energy that are always eager to be doing something.
These little guys don’t like to sit still, but can adapt to living in a small apartment as long as they have a loving family that gives them enough attention, lots of off-lead play and daily walks.
They will bark at first when people come to the door, but will then jump and lick them once they enter the house in the hope that they might give them some attention or even throw the ball for them. For Tenterfield Terriers, playing fetch is an Olympic sport discipline…they just can’t get enough! One has to be careful as they can easily forget where they are going when chasing another dog or the ball.
They love soaking up the warmth, and you will find them curling up in front of the fire on a cold winter’s day or outside sunbathing in summer. They are easy to train and love to work for you as they enjoy being praised. Even if the job is doing the school run with you or taking out the rubbish, they is up for anything!
Tenterfield Terriers are fearless, lively, clever and have this ever-alert expression on their faces as if they always in a state of anticipation of what you are taking them to do next.
They have a short coat and can easily get cold. A bath once in a while and a towel rub to get rid of the loose hair is all the grooming required.
