The Biewer Terrier is an intelligent dog breed, although they can be stubborn which makes training difficult. Owners must be patient and training should be reward-based when they've done well. Consistency is key and training should start early. 


The Biewer Terrier have long coats and considered to b hypoallergenic. Because of their size, their coat is quite easy to maintain and only requires minimal brushing. As with all dog breeds, they require regular cleaning of their laws, ears, and teeth. 


The Biewer Terrier is considered to be a healthy dog breed but they are predisposed to a few health issues, which is why it is important to maintain good care. Some of the health conditions include:

  • Gastro problems
  • Dental issues
  • GI tract sensitivity

Biewer Terrier Exercise Needs

The Biewer Terrier has high energy levels and therefore requires moderate levels of exercise and mental stimulation. daily exercise should be for a minimum of 40-60 minutes and plenty of time off their lead as possible. To prevent becoming bored, they require daily mental stimulation which can be provided through playtime or mental stimulating toys to play with. 

Children and other pets

The Biewer Terrier tends to get on very well with other children and pets. As they're a small dog breed, they can get injured rather easily and therefore children need to be taught early on how to play correctly and playtime needs to be supervised by an adult. They also get on very well with other pets provided they are socialised correctly from a young age.
