Above Average (Rating 4/5)


Norwich Terriers are known for their intelligence and the fact they love to please. However, like a lot of other terriers, they can be a little wilful when they want to be which can make training them a bit of a challenge. As such, their training has to start as early as possible and it has to be consistent for dogs to respond well to any commands they are given.

Being quite sensitive by nature, the Norwich Terrier does not respond well to any sort of harsh correction or heavy handed training methods. They do answer well to positive reinforcement and will look to their owners for guidance and direction as long as they know their place in the pack and who is alpha dog in a household for them to be truly obedient dogs.

There have been reports of Norwich Terriers being difficult to housetrain, but with perseverance and a lot of understanding, they can be taught to do their business outside, it may just take a little longer than with other breeds.
