Overview
The Norwich Terrier originated in Great Britain in the 19th century. They are one of the smallest Terriers. This breed is low, compact, and strong. The Norwich was bred to hunt rabbits and hares in small packs. Therefore, they tend to be more social than other breeds of Terrier.
Character
The Norwich Terrier is loyal, active, curious, and bold. They are a rugged breed full of spirit with a loving heart. They are fearless and assertive, but are never aggressive or irritable. The Norwich thrives on companionship.
Temperament
The Norwich Terrier is extremely intelligent. Although they prefer human companions and are good with well-behaved children, they are accepting of other dogs. However, they may view cats as prey, so must be introduced to them at an early age. They require early exposure and socialization or they may be wary or timid when they are in unfamiliar situations. The Norwich Terrier loves to be the center of attention, and this spunky busybody loves to be a part of absolutely everything that is happening in their surroundings.
Care
The Norwich Terrier's coat is easy to care for. Daily brushing and combing is important. They require minimal clipping, and should only be bathed when absolutely necessary. In most cases all that is needed is a dry shampooing. Special attention should be given to this breed when they are shedding. They may need to have their coat stripped by a professional groomer a couple of times a year. The Norwich Terrier is a hardy and long-lived breed, but they may suffer from genetic eye disease and back problems.
Coat
The Norwich Terrier has a straight, hard and wiry outer coat, which lies close to the body. They have a thick undercoat, which makes this breed almost weatherproof. The coat of the Norwich comes in such colors as red, wheaten, black and tan. They are low shedding.
Training
The Norwich Terrier is quick to learn, but sometimes has a mind of their own. They may also exhibit a stubborn streak and can be difficult to housetrain. They respond best to firm and consistent rules and guidance. They love to learn tricks given the right method of motivation for them. The Norwich does best when given obedience training.
Activity
The Norwich Terrier is energetic and loves to go on walks or short jogs. However, they must always remain secured on a leash. They do not have a good sense of direction and will be off and running after anything they consider prey. They are a true companion breed who much prefers to be inside with their family. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. They will dig and bark if left alone outside without stimulation. The Norwich will adapt to apartment living provided they are given sufficient exercise.

Annual cost of owning a Norwich Terrier puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Norwich Terriers true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

I am a new owner of a Norwich. He is 7 months old. He pees when he gets excited or scared. Will he grow out of this?

Young dogs, especially ones that are a year or younger can have this problem. It is mainly due to the fact that they get so excited that they can't help it or when they get startled it is the same thing. Your dog will grow out of this as his bladder muscles grow, but you can take steps to help it stop sooner. Identify the times when your dog has his excited or nervous pee and keep the energy calmer during those times. If he pees when you come home, then either crate him or ignore him for the first couple of minutes after getting home and let him outside. Acknowledge him after he's calmed down when you know he's done his business outside. If your dog is nervous around new people, start slow and praise him/give him a treat when he is meeting new people. So it becomes a positive thing for him and he doesn't get nervous and pee.

Do you think a Norwich Terrier could be litter box trained for long days in the house?

1 Comment

The Norwich Terrier could be litter box trained if the dog is left alone for long periods of time in a house. However, since the Norwich Terrier is a breed that loves its owners and people, if the dog is left alone for long periods all the time it is not good for the dog. Consider taking the dog to doggy day care and/or having a family member, friend, or doggy day care person come into your home and let the dog out and/or take the dog for a walk during the middle of the day.

I go to school from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM and will have my Norwich Terrier in the house. Will it be ok for that period of time?

It is a very long time to expect your dog not to go to the bathroom while you are gone. It is a good idea to either come back at lunch time or to hire a dog walker to let your dog out in the afternoon to pee.
