Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier...


The Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier is a breed of dog in the terrier family that originated in Ireland. The name may be hyphenated or unhyphenated. Alternatively, the words "soft" and "coated" are occasionally combined into one to make "softcoated". There are four coat varieties: Traditional Irish, Heavy Irish, English, and American. They are considered to be hypoallergenic, a trait popular with allergic or asthmatic dog owners. Wheatens are unofficially crossbred with Standard Poodles to create the hybrid Whoodle. The Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier is an energetic and playful dog. They require patience and consistency in training. Always happy to see guests through the door with a bounce a lick, the Wheaten owner must take care around young children.

The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier has a soft, silky coat that is long and profuse. This breed should be groomed daily using a medium-tooth comb, not a brush as it will make the coat fuzzy. Provided that the loose hair is regularly groomed out, the Wheaten will shed little to no hair. Fringes around the ears, feet and beneath the tail should be trimmed. In addition, the eyes, ears and teeth should be cleaned regularly and the nails kept trimmed.
