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?

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

Do they seem to age quickly? We rescued a dog that someone thinks is a Glen of Imaal and said at the time he was less than a year. We have owned him now for 4 years and he seems to be losing his eye sight and is hard of hearing, he is aging faster than our 10-year-old Jack Russell.

From what I have read about these dogs, they can carry a defective gene that results in blindness that usually presents around age 5. Good breeders do genetic screening on puppies and are careful not to breed a carrier of the gene to another carrier. Don't know about the deafness.
