Norfolk Terrier K9 Obedience Dog Breed Summary:

The Norfolk Terrier is a very lively, active little dog that is very affectionate and playful.

They do tend to be a bit vocal so it is important to train them to stop barking on command. They love children and can be very good with other pets.

They are easy to train but particular attention should be focused on the recall as this dog does tend to run off.

The Norfolk Terrier suits either a family, a single person or the elderly and can live in an apartment, town or country. A very loving dog that thrives on human companionship.
