The Hairless American Terrier

The snuggliest dog you’ll ever come across, there’s nothing the American Hairless Terrier enjoys more than cuddling up the in the warmth of your lap or blanket. One of the best house pets you can have, the Hairless American Terrier is a very spirited and protective breed. A good watchdog, they stand at guard the moment they sense an intrusion.

Taking their time to warm up to people outside of their family, the Hairless Terriers prefer to be introduced to strangers in installments rather than being grabbed and molly-coddled in their first encounter. The American Hairless Terriers are easy to train in spite of the former being a little stubborn and independent. Their tendency to bark rather frequently, for instance, can be something that they can be taught to control.

Perfect to accompany you on hikes and jogs, the Hairless Terriers are nothing short of a bundle of energy. A daily walk is a must along with a run in an enclosed area, to expend the energy for the day. You could also play games with them that could involve a mental as well as a physical challenge. As long as they’re raised with other pets in the house, there won’t be a problem; they love to chase smaller animals and birds.

The American Hairless Terrier dogs take well to older children and dislikes any rough-handling. Because of their lack of fur, they need to be kept warm during the winter and well shaded from sunburn in the summer. The Hairless Terriers don’t do well in water and need to be monitored around water.
