I want to get a norfolk terrier but I need to know: Is it good with children? Will it get along with my silky terrier? How long can it be outside alone before it starts to dig? How do you care for the coat?

The Norfolk Terrier is known to be good with children. But like any relationship between a dog and a child, the interactions should always be supervised. Children need to be taught to be respectful of dogs and puppies, while puppies and dogs need to be trained to be respectful of children. If the puppy grows up with the other dog and is well socialized, then normally there is no problem. The Norfolk Terrier loves to dig. The best thing to do is to get a sand box, or make one and have a designated digging area for your dog so you don't have to worry. Or, do not allow the dog outside free-range so that he/she can not dig where you don't want them too. A groomer can help you with the coat, but in general, a 10 minute brushing a day or every two days is good.
