Kerry Blue Terriers are strong-headed and highly spirited. They have always been loyal and
affectionate towards their owners and very gentle towards children. In the early days of
competitive dog showing the Irish Kennel Club required Kerries to pass a "gameness" test,
known as Teastas Mor certification, before they were deemed worthy of being judged.
These tests included catching rabbits and bringing a badger to bay in its set. They are fast,
strong, and intelligent. They do well in obedience, dog agility, sheep herding, and tracking.
They have been used as police dogs in Ireland. Modern breeders have attempted to retain
high spirits while breeding out aggression.

As a long-legged breed, the activity level of the Kerry Blue Terrier ranges from moderate to
high. They require an active, skilled owner who can provide them with early socialization and
obedience training. Kerries require daily exercise.
Breed Specific Products
KERRY BLUE TERRIER
Named for County Kerry, the Irish Blue may have
derived from some legendary "blue dogs that swam
ashore from a ship wrecked in Tralee Bay." Singed
with romance, the origins of the Kerry Blue Terrier
befit this distinctive terrier among terriers. In
addition to being a feisty and game earthdog,
rugged enough to rid the landscape of rats and
badgers, the Kerry is a versatile farm dog, a
trainable hunting and herding dog, a confident
watchdog and a delightful companion.

Although strong-willed, as are all terriers, the Kerry
excels in obedience and agility competition and
possesses the confidence and panache to make
heads turn in the show ring. As a companion, the
Kerry Blue Terrier is able to delight dog lovers of
every age with his clever and entertaining ways,
his unmistakable affection for children and his
unflagging devotion to his people. For the right
owners, the Kerry makes an upstanding and
handsome addition to a loving household.

This book discusses selection and care of the
puppy as well as house-training, obedience
training and dealing with and preventing behavioral
problems. From the first days with the new puppy
in the owner's home to the special care for a senior
dog, this new volume will prove an invaluable
addition to every Kerry lover's library.
