Glen Of Imaal Terrier...


The Glen of Imaal Terrier originates from Ireland, and is related to a number of other terriers, including the Irish Terrier and the Kerry Blue Terrier. These hardy little working dogs were bred to hunt out vermin, badgers, and foxes. A determined and courageous breed when called for, the Glen of Imaal Terrier has a generally calm and gentle disposition, and is an intelligent dog that is quick to learn and eager to please. They are hardy and resilient--some of us would say "stoic." They are inclined not to bark much. These dogs can be very willful and independent, and this makes them best suited to those with some experience when it comes to owning dogs.

The Glen of Imaal Terrier sheds little to no hair and requires little grooming, and may therefore be suitable for those with allergies. The adult Glen of Imaal Terrier has a double coat, consisting of a soft undercoat and a harsh outer coat. Glens do not shed their coat but, like most other "coated" terriers, should be stripped once or twice a year, to allow new growth to come through. Hair under the tail and between the pads of the feet should be clipped as needed, and the hair in the ears should be regularly plucked.
