We have a 6 year old wire haired fox terrier she never bark's. Is this the norm?

1 Comment


In short, yes. Your six year old Wire Haired Fox Terrier is well socialized, well trained, and well exercised to the point of where you do not have a neurotic, anxiety ridden dog that develops a bad habit of barking to get rid of excess energy and anxiety. You have a good dog, enjoy her.

Anonymous asked:
Are there any genetic conditions of which I should be aware when buying a wire Fox Terrier dog?

1 Comment


The Wire Haired Fox Terrier is a generally hardy breed of dog that doesn't have a lot of genetic problems associated with the breed. However, like all dog breeds and even mixes; there are always a few potential problems that a good breeder will screen their dogs for before they breed. For the Wired Hair Fox Terrier, those genetic conditions are Deafness, Hip dysplasia, Lens Luxation (when the lens of the eye becomes detached and either needs to be fixed with surgery or the eye has to be removed), Legg-Perthes disease (a deformation in the ball of the hip joint ((not hip dysplasia)) that would have to be fixed by surgery), and Cataracts. A responsible, reputable and knowledgeable breeder will screen their adult dogs for hip dysplasia, lens luxation, and legg-perthes disease before breeding. Early-on-stage cataracts can also be checked by a vet and would be obvious in the linage of the dog to be bred. Deafness can be tested as a puppy, and should be confirmed before the breeder even gets their pup, and should have their pups hearing tested as well.

My husband and I got an 8mo old Terrier about a week and a half ago. We were just told that she's a Terrier and we saw pics. We assumed she was a Jack Russel or Fox. We found out that she is a Jagdterrier, which isn't on your site but their breed was bred from Fox Terriers. I've never heard them so I read up on them. Full prey drive. All the time. We have a mouse in our house that won't leave and we can't catch. She saw it the other night and hasn't chilled since. The mouse stays in the kitchen, yet our terrier tries to crawl under everything to find it. We lift stuff to show her there's nothing there but she won't stop. How do we distract her? She won't even go outside.

The Jagdterrier is quite a rare breed of dog these days, and so to have one is a privilege in its own right. Their prey drive is very true and constant. The only way to work with them is through firm, but gentle training. Use positive reinforcement and start to work on a "Leave it" cue. It will be the best thing in your life for yourself and your dog. The Leave It cue is needed for high prey drive breeds like the Jagdterrier; so you can get them redirected and further instruction.

Anonymous asked:
What is the best age for a wire puppy to go home with its new owners?

1 Comment


Puppies should never go to their new owner's until they are at least 8 weeks old. Although, puppies that go to their new homes at between 12 - 14 weeks old, they have a better social structure with dogs.

Anonymous asked:
How long is the heat cycle for the Wire Fox Terrier?

1 Comment


The heat cycle for any dog is the same. The average is 3 weeks, although it can last up to 45 days. But, unless you are a reputable breeder or are under the study of one, you shouldn't be breeding. Breeding dogs is very dangerous for the dam, sire and the puppies. Unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, has passed all temperament and health checks and has titles in confirmation and/or has shown he/she is capable of doing what the breed was made for, the dog should be spayed/neutered.
