Better known as the Australian silky terrier, this dog is a small-sized breed of terrier dogs. Although this dog was developed in Australia, its ancestral origins can be traced back to Great Britain. This dog comes in different color variations such as; Grey & Tan, Silver & Tan, Silver Black & Tan, Black & Tan, and Blue & Tan. this dog is closely related to other dog breeds like the Yorkshire terrier and the Australian terrier. The most distinctive feature in these breeds of dogs is their straight, silky and shiny coats. Discover more about our Silky Terrier puppies for sale below!

This breed of dogs was developed in the 1800s in Australia. The silky terrier is a crossbreed of the Yorkshire terrier and the Australian terrier. The idea behind this breed of dogs was to create a dog breed that had the color and coat of a Yorkshire terrier whilst keeping the robust body of the Australian terrier. Like some other dogs, the name of the silky terrier has evolved over time. At some point in the past, it was called the Sydney silky terrier. After that, it was called the Australian silky terrier. However, when it got to America, it simply became known as the silky terrier.

The silky terrier is known to be a very active dog. It loves to run and play, it is also very friendly and as such, thrives well as a pet, because of its smallish nature, the silky terrier is usually referred to as a toy dog. However, it is popular for its high level of intelligence. They are also good for hunting vermin. The only issue that comes with a silky terrier is that it barks a little too much. Its incessant barking is sometimes a real pain. Also, the silky terrier doesn’t like to be left alone to deal with boredom.

Although the silky terrier is a very social dog, it thrives well in apartments. This doesn’t mean that it doesn’t do well in bigger houses, but because of its size, it is believed to be the perfect fit for an apartment house. The silky terrier loves to play, so a small backyard wouldn’t hurt. However, great care must be taken to ensure that it’s not running off. The best way to keep it in check is to build a good fence in the backyard, to help ensure that the dog is safe. usually, this dog is a perfect fit for a person who lives alone in a small house and would love to experience the world on his/her own.

The best form of exercises for the silky terrier is letting it go for leisure walks occasionally, and then letting it play as much as it wants indoors. The silky terrier also enjoys playing with balls and dog toys.

Grooming the silky terrier is a task that requires lots of commitments and patience. Its long straight coat needs to be brushed every day and then bathed once every two weeks. It should also be taken to a groomer every three weeks to brush its teeth and take care of it. The silky terrier needs special care. The silky terrier is known to have teeth and gum problems, and this should be taken into consideration when visiting the groomer. Proper care should also be taken when grooming the neck area.
