Q&A

I know that Rat Terriers don't need much in the grooming area but could you tell me if they shed much ? I'm looking at adopting one and would like to know if they are BIG shedders. It doesn't seem to say anywhere if they are or not.

My two rat terriers shed A LOT! But it is easy to identify their hairs and clean them up.


Our Rattie is one-and-a-half. He sheds very little and we would consider him an excellent choice for anyone who doesn't want to cope with a lot of dog hair all over the place. He sleeps on the furniture and bed as well as on our laps and there is almost no dog hair on anything. Our only concession is that if we are planning on wearing black, we don't dress until just before we must leave home (he's white).


Mine don't shed much at all. They usually just need a brushing.


Shedding is the only thing I don't like about my rat terrier. Otherwise, she's the best dog I've ever had.


yes they shed..all the time...doesn't matter what season or how much you bathe them they still shed...


a little but not much
