How do Biewer Terriers and large breed dogs get along?

Biewer Terriers have become very popular over the last few years. Despite their small size, they are known for their big personalities, playful nature, and affectionate demeanor. Many families who are interested in getting a Biewer Terrier also own a large breed dog and often wonder if their Biewer Terrier will get along with their larger furry friend. The good news is that Biewer Terriers can get along very well with large breed dogs, with proper socialization and training.

Here are some tips on how to help your Biewer Terrier and large breed dog get along:

  1. Start socialization early: It’s important to start socializing your Biewer Terrier with large breed dogs as early as possible. This means exposing them to different breeds of dogs, sizes, and ages.
  2. Supervise the interactions: When introducing your Biewer Terrier to your larger dog, it’s important to supervise the interactions. Start with short and controlled interactions and gradually increase the length of time they spend together. Be sure to reward both dogs for positive behavior.
  3. Teach basic obedience: Teaching your Biewer Terrier basic obedience commands such as “sit,” “stay,” and “come” will not only help them interact better with your larger dog but also help with overall behavior.
  4. Give them their own space: It’s important to give each dog its own space to retreat to when they need a break. Provide separate beds, crates, or play areas, so that each dog can have some alone time.
  5. Exercise and play together: Exercising and playing together can help build a positive relationship between your Biewer Terrier and a large breed dog. Taking them for walks or playing fetch together can help them bond and burn off energy.
  6. Use positive reinforcement: Positive reinforcement techniques such as treats, praise, and playtime can help reinforce good behavior and make training more fun for both dogs.

Biewer Terriers can get along well with large breed dogs with proper socialization and training. Starting early, supervising interactions, teaching basic obedience, giving them their own space, exercising and playing together, and using positive reinforcement can help build a positive relationship between your furry friends. Remember that every dog is unique, and some may take longer to adjust than others, so be patient and consistent with training. With time and effort, your Biewer Terrier and large breed dog can become the best of friends.
