The Welsh Terrier can be rather reserved with people it does not know. Generally it is patient with children-and can withstand a bit of rough play. Make sure it becomes confident with cats and other animals of the house when young. This will prevent the dog from chasing them when it grows up.
The coat is wire-haired, hard and very thick. They are usually red-brown with black.
The Welsh Terrier will need to have its coat plucked two or three times a year or even more often-depending upon the condition of the coat. It also requires grooming with brush and comb a number of times each week. Those dogs that are to be shown require greater levels of attention. The longer hairs at the feet, on the belly, and particularly around the face, give the Welsh Terrier its typical appearance.
The Welsh Terrier is bright enough to understand quickly what you want of it but is also cunning enough to try to divert you from your intentions. Give them constant variety in their training and remain consistent towards them.
