• Welsh Terrier

    Strong and hardy, Welsh Terriers look a lot like Airedale Terriers and are often mistaken for them.

    Lifespan: 10–15 yr
    Height: 13–15 in
    Weight: 15–29 lb

  • Care

    Welsh Terriers don't shed, so plucking the hair by hand (i.e., hand stripping) is an ideal way to keep their coats in top shape. Their coats also need to be brushed a couple of times a week and clipped every 8–12 weeks. Bathing between clippings is generally not necessary. But you should include weekly nail trims as part of the grooming routine.

    The Welsh Terrier is a highly energetic dog that enjoys activities with their people. Favorite ways to burn energy include daily brisk walks and backyard games—such as fetch, ball chasing, and frisbee catching. And if they can get in two walks per day, all the better. Welsh Terriers also enjoy earthdog trials, agility, tracking, flyball, and obedience. They even love to swim.

    Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
