The Kerry Blue Terrier is truly an all-purpose dog. Bred to hunt and retrieve, his athleticism, agility and smarts stand out in the show ring and in dog sports like agility, and obedience. As a family companion, his joyousness and people-oriented personality make him a great family playmate. He's also protective of his family, prey-driven and active, so start training your Kerry Blue Terrier puppy early. With lots of exercise and firm, patient training, he'll be an avid companion in family activities.
