Norwich Terriers are known for being incredibly energetic and active, this means they need plenty of physical and mental stimulation in order to stop them from being bored, which may result in them digging up your garden or excessive baking. They get on extremely well with other humans, including strangers and children as well as lots of different animals, as long as they have been socialized properly. They never act out aggressively and are overall very happy, which is what makes them such an excellent choice for a family pet.
