Norfolk Terrier Breed Maintenance
The Norfolk Terrier is a light shedding breed who will do well with regular brushing of its coat. Nail clipping is also needed and bathing should occur as necessary for the particular dog. Dogs of the breed require daily exercise (two or three 15 minute walks or play times daily), however, an occasional missed day won’t cause harm. As the Norfolk Terrier was bred to work, regular activity is good for the dog’s emotional and physical health. A dog of this breed can live in an apartment as long as he is taken out daily for walks and/or other outdoor activities. Having access to a fenced in yard is better for the breed, though you will want to fence in any garden you have as he may be tempted to dig into it. While the breed can survive living outdoors, he enjoys his family and will prefer not to be separated from them for long periods of time. It Is advised that choke collars not be used with the Norfolk Terrier, as the trachea is sensitive and could become injured easily.
