A spirited breed, the Kerry Blue responds best to kind and consistent training. They can be rather stubborn and independent minded like all terriers, however they are loyal and will bond closely to their family and even other pets, although some dominance issues may arise with other dogs.
Dogs should measure 46-48cm at the shoulder with a weight of 15-17kg, bitches slightly less
Generally healthy but with their high activity levels muscular and joint issues may arise. They are also prone to eye conditions as well so be sure to take care to clear any hair from around the eyes.
The Kerry Blue has continued to be bred as a working breed as well as a pet and as such they may well give chase to small animals.
Remember! All breed profiles are general and every dog is an individual.
