KERRY BLUE TERRIER APPEARANCE:
Some characteristics of the Kerry Blue Terrier include a long head, flat skull, deep chest, and a soft wavy to curly coat that comes in several shades of blue (the term for "gray" in dog coats). Puppies are born black; the blue appears gradually as the puppy grows older, usually up to 2 years of age.

Grooming: The coat care is extensive. The Kerry Blue Terrier doesn't shed. The coat is close to the structure of human hair, similar to that of the Poodle or Maltese, and might be suitable for some people with allergies. But the Kerry owner will pay his dues. The coat never stop growing and the Kerry requires weekly brushing to prevent matting. They also need to be trimmed every six to eight weeks. The coat has only one layer and does not protect from the weather, cold, water, or mud. The Kerry should not be kept outside all the time and should dried immediately when back at home.

KERRY BLUE TERRIER HISTORY:
A Kerry Blue Terrier is a dog breed that comes from Kerry, Ireland. It was used for hunting, cattle herding, dog fights, and guarding. Today, the Kerry is a companion and working dog.

KERRY BLUE TERRIER HEALTH:


KERRY BLUE TERRIER TEMPERAMENT:
Kerry Blue Terriers are strong-headed and highly spirited. They are, together with the Airedale Terrier, one of the best-suited terriers for work. They are fast, strong, and intelligent. They do well in obedience, dog agility, sheep herding, and tracking. They have been used as a police dogs in Ireland. They require an active, skilled owner who can provide them with early socialization and obedience training.

Because they can be dog aggressive and vocal, socialization from puppyhood is an absolute necessity to prevent future problems and veterinary bills.

As a long legged breed, their activity level is moderate to high. Kerries require work daily, such as walks, jogging, training, agility, or dog day care activities, to keep them busy and occupied. If they are locked in a fenced yard, they become bored and might bark, fence fight, dig holes or try to escape.

It is loyal and gentle towards children.
