Nature and Temperament of the Smooth Fox Terrier

The fox terrier is a loyal companion. He is attached to his master and builds strong relationships of trust. When dealing with the family, he is very affectionate. Fox terriers are very people-oriented, although they are suspicious of strangers at first.

At the same time, the terrier is extremely sporty and agile. He loves daily activities and exercise. He can keep himself busy with toys such as balls or frisbees for a long time.

Due to its persistent nature and very high intelligence, the fox terrier is well suited for dog sports such as agility, obedience, or flyball. He needs a lot of work to keep himself busy and is a real bundle of energy. After an exciting trip, he also likes to relax on the couch and cuddle with his master.

Fox Terriers are very smart and alert. Intelligence and taster games are also excellent for keeping them busy. In addition, they are extremely brave, stubborn, and self-confident.

Fox Terriers were bred as hunting dogs for fox and rat hunting and accordingly have a strong hunting instinct. In order to redirect this into controlled paths, the fox terrier should play, romp and be busy a lot.
