Overview
The Welsh Terrier is very friendly, intelligent, energetic, and outgoing making him a wonderful companion. This breed is not as energetic at most terriers, however is lively and makes a great catch companion.
Character

Temperament
Intelligent, sweet, lively, and eager to please, the Welsh Terrier does well in a family environment. He is generally good around children providing the children to not overly pester, and does well with other animals. This breed should always be properly socialized at an early age.
Care
The Welsh Terrier should have at least weekly brushing to remove loose or dead hair. Regular bathing is not necessary, however a wipe down with a damp or dry washcloth should remove most dirt, if any. The beard of this breed should be cleaned regularly.
Coat
The Welsh Terrier has a very short coat. Resembling the coat of the Airedale Terrier, it is short, dense, hard, and wiry. The coat should always be close and abundant on this breed.
Training
Being a terrier and of high energy, this breed should always have a variety of training methods. A firm yet gentle hand is a must, and the handler should always remain consistent. Given the proper training, this breed does very well in obedience, agility, and flyball.

Annual cost of owning a Welsh Terrier puppy

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.

Are Welsh Terriers a good pet for people who work during the day? Can they be alone most of the day?

Unless you plan on walking your Welshy in the morning before work, at lunch and after work; then no. This breed thrives on attention and companionship of their owners. Without companionship and proper exercise, this breed can become destructive and barky from being lonely.

No! Welsh Terrier's are very social, and very active. They are wonderful dogs but please do not get one if no one will be home most of the day.

Anonymous asked:
We have had three Welch Terriers and all three of them have had tremors in their front legs. It isn't there all the time, but often enough to be noticeable. They were bred by two different breeders. Is this a common trait amongst Welch Terriers? It doesn't appear to have any debilitating effects on them, but it has always been a concern of ours. We have also heard that cataracts are prevalent with the breed. I haven't had any incidents of this malady. All of my dogs have been GREAT with children. I would not have any other breed.

The tremors in the front or back legs is a hereditary trait that is passed down through either the dam or sire of your puppies. However, it is not something to be worried about. Many other breeds have been affected and it is considered more of a 'tick' than anything else. Most dogs exhibit the behavior when nervous or excited.

Never seen the tremor in any of my Welsh Terriers. If there does not seem to be any problem from it don't worry about it.

I have 2 Welsh Terriers who are Brother and Sister and both get seizures. Is this common, the breeder says it is not genetic yet my vet says it probably is genetic. Thank you, Jim

Seizures are not a common problem with the Welsh Terrier, so I agree with your vet in saying that it is genetic. I would get in contact with other puppy owners from your breeder and see if any of their dogs are having seizure problems as well. If your breeder refuses to see that it is genetic, then I would start spreading the word to make sure people know that it is a risk in buying his/her puppies.

Years ago my wife and I had a Welsh terrier who had seizures. We were able to control it with a minimal daily dose of prednisone (1/2 of the dose prescribed by the vet) and she lived to be 15.
