CHARACTERISTICS of the fox terrier
There are two different varieties in this breed. Each one of them has their own admirers who defend the superiority of their variety in front of the other.
ADVICE 717
The Fox Terrier has a very slow digestion, so it is a good idea to feed them in the morning so the dog will have the whole day to digest.
For the two varieties, the menu is the same; prepared food is more recommendable than home made food for two reasons: economic and practical.
ADVICE 718
The required amount of food is around 150 and 170 grams for an adult dog.
ADVICE 719
As a general rule, the Fox Terrier is not a big eater.
ADVICE 720
The two varieties are excellent partners. They are also very sociable.
ADVICE 721
The variety with hard hair is more independent and is capable, for example, of waiting patiently for its master if they're busy.
ADVICE 722
The variety with straight hair, on the contrary, wants to be with its master all the time. It needs human presence a lot.
ADVICE 723
As far as training goes, the two varieties need to begin with it very soon.
ADVICE 724
These dogs have an amazing faculty of comprehension and memory. 48 hours after the arrival to the house of the new owners, they would discover what are the weak and strong points.
ADVICE 725
You should make the dog understand quickly who the boss at home is. The ancient reputation of aggressive dog is completely forgotten.
The Fox Terrier is a hunter and it hasn't lost any of its faculties about it. The variety with straight hair has been, and still is, the most used one for hunting.
ADVICE 726
The Fox Terrier doesn't have health problems on the two varieties.
ADVICE 727
It is rustic, robust and it supports the cold really well; so it has no need of a coat during winter. On the contrary, it loves running in the snow, for example. It doesn't suffer much on the heat either, of course, if it is not excessive. This dog has a really good health.
ADVICE 728
The care for the Fox of straight hair is less annoying because it is enough with daily brushing.
ADVICE 729
The variety with hard hair needs more attention, even when there are two solutions: a stripping, that gives the hair a hard texture. It also preserves the pigmentation of the hair; it also keeps the hair from getting too dirty. The dog should have at least three stripping sessions per year and some combing once a week.
ADVICE 730
The other solution is to cut the hair, but most breeders say that this is not recommendable because it produces curled hair with no pigmentation. It is also important to mention that the Fox Terrier with hard hair doesn't molt.
ADVICE 731
This is a very smart dog of fast movements and lively expression, always alert to any provocation.
ADVICE 732
It is recommended to let them let out steam by taking the dog for long walks.
ADVICE 733
It is very friendly, outgoing, tireless and intrepid.
