Anonymous asked:
What is the best age for a wire puppy to go home with its new owners?

1 Comment


Puppies should never go to their new owner's until they are at least 8 weeks old. Although, puppies that go to their new homes at between 12 - 14 weeks old, they have a better social structure with dogs.

Anonymous asked:
How long is the heat cycle for the Wire Fox Terrier?

1 Comment


The heat cycle for any dog is the same. The average is 3 weeks, although it can last up to 45 days. But, unless you are a reputable breeder or are under the study of one, you shouldn't be breeding. Breeding dogs is very dangerous for the dam, sire and the puppies. Unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, has passed all temperament and health checks and has titles in confirmation and/or has shown he/she is capable of doing what the breed was made for, the dog should be spayed/neutered.

Anonymous asked:
I have never had a Wire Fox Terrier, but researching the breed, I noticed that it says we are to strip the fur once in awhile. How often does this need to be done and how/what is stripping?

1 Comment


Stripping the fur means plucking it by hand or with the help of a stripping knife. It needs to be done three or four times a year in the case of pet wire fox terriers. As the hair is loose it's a painless procedure for the dog. It's not true that wires don't shed. As the hair lengthens some will fall out. Brushing and combing tends to remove the soft undercoat rather than the top wire coat. Stripping preserves the color and texture of the coat whereas clipping will result in a soft, curly and faded coat.

I have developed arthritis in my right hand and can no longer strip my two wires. Would appreciate the whereabouts of a groomer that does this form of grooming in and around the Wisconsin area. I have searched out many sources without success.

The only way someone will be able to help you is if they live near you. Contact all your local groomer's as well as your vet to find someone that can help.
