The Australian Terrier is an Australian breed that was designed to hunt and kill vermin and snakes. They were bred from a variety of English terriers including the Dandie Dinmont, the Irish Terrier, the Yorkshire Terrier, and the Cairn Terrier. They are a small dog breed that only grows to be about 10 inches tall and they can weigh up to 14 pounds. This breed has a problem with their kneecaps, skin, and hip joints. You should watch your dog for problems with these body parts.

The Australian Terrier is a very active, bouncy, and lively dog. They make great companions for older children and for the elderly. They do great as the only pet in a household, and they also function well in a multi-pet household. Their personality makes them a great watch-dog, but their size makes them unsuitable for a guard dog position.

To care for this dog you will need to brush their coat a couple of times a week. This will
stimulate their oil glands to secrete a shiny coating for their top coat and help to keep their skin moisturized and healthy. Bathing should only be done on an as needed basis. This breed does not need a lot of exercise but they do enjoy a daily stroll through the park or free time in a fenced yard. They are naturally a compliant dog that wants to please you, however, obedience training is still a good idea.

As with all terriers training should start from an early age.  Training should be firm but fair.
