Kerry Blue Terriers don't shed. But they still need to be brushed thoroughly every week. And combing their coats is essential to keep them from matting. When it's time for a trim, use clippers to cut the hair on the head, neck, ears, and belly and a pair of scissors for the coat.
Active, spirited dogs, Kerry Blue Terriers like swimming and jogging. Exercise them enough outdoors, though, and they'll welcome calm family time inside the home. This breed also enjoys agility, earthdog trials, flyball, herding, hiking, retrieving, tracking, Frisbee, musical freestyle, rally, and competitive obedience.
