Along with being a great family member, the Manchester Terrier was bred for a purpose, to hunt and catch vermin.  It required an intelligent, agile dog that had a quick turn at speed and was fast. These attributes lend themselves to a range of different competitive dog activities that you can enjoy with your Manchester Terrier. We are seeing our versatile breed making themselves known in several Kennel Club (KC) and unaffiliated competitive sports and activities such as agility, flyball, racing, canicross, conformation showing, scent work and obedience.

However, there is a note of caution.  Although the Manchester was bred to work and their willingness to follow their owner combined with their athleticism, speed and exuberance makes them ideal for dog sports, they are a ‘TERRIER’.  They can have a mind of their own and sometimes will test you to the limit.  Training can therefore be a challenge especially in their juvenile years (up to 2.5yrs). However, most owners will say that this is what’s makes it so much fun to work with their dogs.

Information about some of these activities and contact details of Manchester owners involved in them are in the links.  If you are a Manchester Terrier owner involved with a dog sport/activity not listed please let us know and we will add it to our links.

Whatever the activity you decide to do with your Manchester have fun.
