The Glen of Imaal Terrier breed is an Irish breed and quite rare in the United States. Originally bred as working dogs, this breed was used to rid the farm and home of vermin, as well as hunt fox and badger. The Glen of Imaal Terrier's were also designed to perform the unique task of turning a rotisserie over the hearth.
Character
A medium-sized breed, the Glen of Imaal Terrier is resilient and hardy. Commonly referred to as a "big dog on short legs", this breed's low to the ground conformation makes it an excellent earthdog. Glen of Imaal Terrier's possess a stroic demeanor and are silent workers.

How would the Glen of Imaal Terrier breed do as a drug dog or search and rescue work? I am a Police Officer and I was wondering how the Glen of Imaal Terrier breed would do for sniffing out drugs or search and rescue work? Not doing the chase the bad guy and bite him thing just looking for contraband or missing people.

If you are choosing The Glen of Imaal Terrier for work, I would suggest using the dog in contraband searching. The Glen of Imaal Terrier has an amazing sense of smell and is very loyal to its owner. They are a hardy breed of dog and need a lot of mental and physical stimulation, so a job such as searching for contraband would fulfill the Glen of Imaal Terrier's need for work/walk. Please note that this breed of dog is quite sensitive to their owner's/handler's voice. So you must be firm, but gentle with this dog to train him/her properly. Also, note that this breed matures slower than other terrier's, so he/she must be trained accordingly.

Do they seem to age quickly? We rescued a dog that someone thinks is a Glen of Imaal and said at the time he was less than a year. We have owned him now for 4 years and he seems to be losing his eye sight and is hard of hearing, he is aging faster than our 10-year-old Jack Russell.

Will a Glen do okay in a kennel outside, that is under-cover?

Glens are very hardy. So it should be okay. But it still depends on your climate/ temperature(sunny, rainy, snowy, hot, cold, windy).

How do we get our Glen of Imaal Terrier to be obedient without yelling at her? How long should our Glen's coat be for each season?

Don't yell at a Glen, train it. Take the dog to puppy classes or obedience classes. Glens will only obey an "alpha" personality, so be the leader in your pack.
The coat should be hand stripped at least twice a year. See a groomer or learn terrier breed grooming.
