Norwich Terrier Breed Maintenance
These dogs do not need too much grooming and can get by on being brushed once a week just to remove the dead hair. You can use a soft or slicker brush for this and you do not need to bathe her unless she gets especially dirty. However, they do need to be stripped, which is a process of pulling out entire hairs that should be done by a professional groomer although can be done by an owner if they know how. Stripping is important for the coat to retain its multi length hair and to keep the dog’s skin and coat healthy. Nails should be trimmed regularly and you should check your Norwich Terrier’s ears weekly for wax, dirt, or debris. This will prevent ear infections such as otitis media. Their tail should be medium docked for show purposes but natural is not a problem for a lap dog. In the United Kingdom, it is illegal to dock a Norwich Terrier’s tail unless they are working dogs.
