A fun-loving, smart, brave, loyal, and loving dog, the Norwich Terrier is a great companion for anybody and is easily trainable. They can be comfortable living in an apartment (assuming they get some outdoor time), and are great with kids and other pets. Being a ratter, they should not be left alone with hamsters or other rodent type pets. If left up to their own devices, they might start digging up the yard or barking incessantly. Be sure to socialize and train early so as to avoid the ingraining of detrimental behavior, like “small dog syndrome.”.
