Overview

The Japanese Terrier is a small and lively breed that originated in Japan. 

Temperament

Japanese Terriers are known to be loyal and affectionate with their owners. They are also lively and energetic, making them good companions for active individuals or families. They can be reserved or even timid around strangers, but proper socialization and training can help them become more comfortable with new people and situations.

Lifespan

Japanese Terriers have a lifespan of about 12-14 years.

Shedding

Japanese Terriers have a short, smooth coat that sheds minimally. Regular brushing and occasional baths can help keep their coat healthy and clean.

Training

Japanese Terriers are intelligent and eager to please, which makes them relatively easy to train. They respond well to positive reinforcement methods, such as treats and praise, and may become bored or distracted with repetitive or negative training methods.

Puppy care

Japanese Terrier puppies should be socialized and trained from a young age to help them develop into well-adjusted adult dogs. They require regular exercise and playtime to burn off their energy and stay physically and mentally healthy. Puppy training classes and regular vet check-ups can help ensure that they receive proper care and attention.

Japanese Terriers make good companions for active and loving owners who are willing to invest time and effort into their training and care.
