Overview
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.
Temperament
The Glen of Imaal Terrier is a loving, loyal companion and adept hunter. This breed is not recommended for homes with small children. They do not do well with other dogs or small pets. Although silent when working, Glen of Imaal Terrier's will alert their family to danger and for this reason make adept watchdogs. They thrive on human companionship but are not demanding of attention. The Glen of Imaal Terrier breed is brave, stubborn, and spunky but also displays calmness and patience.
Care
The Glen of Imaal Terrier is quite easy to groom. Bi-yearly stripping of the coat is required. The paw pads should be kept trimmed and the excess hair in the ears plucked out regularly. Due to the rarity of this breed and limited intervention of breeders, this breed has no known health issues.
Coat
A double coat breed, the outer coat is harsh in texture, shaggy, and of medium length. The undercoat is soft and dense. Glen of Imaal Terrier's shed little to no hair.
Training
Glen of Imaal Terrier's are eager to learn and intelligent. This breed can be quite willful and attempt to dominate their owner. The Glen of Imaal Terrier is extremely sensitive to correction. Early socialization and obedience training must always be done with fairness, respect, and consistency.
Activity
The Glen of Imaal Terrier breed is suitable for both apartment and rural living. They enjoy daily walks but must always be securely leashed. They also enjoy free play in a securely fenced yard. However, the Glen of Imaal Terrier is prone to digging, so fencing must be buried deeply underground. They make excellent travel companions as they enjoy going for car rides.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Glen of Imaal Terrier puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

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 The Glen of Imaal Terrier for work, I would suggest using the dog in contraband searching. The The Glen of Imaal Terrier has an amazing sense of smell and is very loyal to it's 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 fufill the Glen of Imaal Terrier's need for work/walk. Please note that this breed of dog is quite sensative to their owner's/handler's voice. So you must be firm, but gentle with this dog to train him/her properly. Aslo note that this breed matures slower then other terrier's, so he/she must be trained accordingly.

If you want to know the breed or breeds of your dog, the only way to do it is to do a DNA test on your dog. You can buy them online or at your vet's office.

Glens are very hardy. So it should be okay. But it still depends on your climate/ temperature(sunny, rainy, snowy, hot, cold, windy). -vet2b

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.
