Australian Terrier


The Australian Terrier is one of the oldest dog breeds in Australia. The breed originated in the late 19th century and was bred to control vermin on farms and mines. It is a cross between different terrier breeds, such as the Cairn Terrier, the Yorkshire Terrier and the Dandie Dinmont Terrier.

In 1933, the Australian Terrier was officially recognized as a breed. The breed is particularly popular in Australia, but is also increasingly seen in other parts of the world.


The Australian Terrier is a lively and alert dog. They are curious and courageous by nature, which makes them excellent watchdogs. Australian Terriers have a big personality and are very loyal to their owner. They are also highly intelligent and can be trained well.

Despite their small size, Australian Terriers have not been frightened. They love to play and get along well with children. They do have a high prey drive and are therefore not always suitable to be placed with other small pets.


In general, the Australian Terrier is a healthy breed. However, they do have a predisposition to some hereditary conditions, including hip dysplasia, patellar luxation and Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease. It's important to have your dog checked by the vet regularly and to make sure they're eating a healthy diet and getting plenty of exercise.


Australian Terriers have a double coat that needs regular brushing to prevent tangles and clumps. It is also important to trim the coat from time to time to keep the coat healthy. They also need regular exercise to release their energy and keep their muscles and joints healthy.

In addition, it is important to clean your Australian Terrier's ears regularly to prevent infections. It is also important to brush their teeth to prevent dental problems.
