Manchester Terrier (Standard)

 

Manchester Terriers are the Ferraris of the Terrier group: sleek, speedy, and soooo good looking. Their muscular bodies are smooth and compact — this dog definitely feels the need for speed, and boy, is she built to move. Originally bred as a ratter and rabbit hunter, today's Manchester Terriers compete in earthdog trials and keep you company around the house.

Originally from England, this small-sized and medium-energy breed can grow to between 12-22 pounds and lives an average of 15-17 years. The breed is recognized by the American Kennel Club and classified as a member of the Terrier group.

BEHAVIOR & TRAINING

WHAT IS A STANDARD MANCHESTER TERRIER'S PERSONALITY LIKE?

Manchester Terriers are loyal and devoted to their chosen people, and they're not afraid to show it. They don't much see the point of strangers, though. They generally make calm and polite housedogs.

WHAT IS STANDARD MANCHESTER TERRIER BEHAVIOR LIKE?

Observant and spirited, Manchester Terriers are actually a bit catlike. They keep themselves very tidy, are a bit aloof with most people, have an independent bearing, and maintain a dignified air.

When they're not snuggling their favorite folks, Manchester Terriers are dogs on the go. They're active and alert, adventurous and playful. Some are prone to digging, so keep an eye on your Manchester Terrier while she's outside unless you want your backyard re-landscaped.

Manchester Terriers are fairly responsive to training — for terriers, anyway. They're smart, eager learners who take well to working those brains. This breed excels in earthdog trials, agility, obedience — even herding! These dogs do like to test your boundaries, though, so it's important to be patient and consistent with this smarty-paws.
