The Australian Terrier may be small in stature, but they offer boundless energy and companionship. The breed has distinct coat furnishings around their forequarters and neck, and the plume of soft and silky hair on the top of their head is different in texture from the rest of their coat. Their dark eyes give you a glimpse into their playful personality.

This breed has a harsh and weatherproof outer coat that repels dirt well, so it’s relatively easy to maintain. A once a week brushing with a brush or grooming mitt should help keep it in shape. This particular breed can also have long hairs that grow adjacent to the eyes, which can irritate the eyes if left unmanaged. Usually, the hairs can be easily plucked while grooming. All dogs require regular dental care, including at-home teeth brushing and professional dental cleanings, and the Australian Terrier is no exception. Maintaining good dental hygiene is important for their overall long-term health.
