About Us

History (coming)


 Tenterfield Terriers are a big talent in a  little package.  They are the ideal house dog, they love being with the  family, need little room indoors and can adapt to a small yard.   A little mate with a heart as big as Australia, a dog for people aged from 1 to 100.

Breeders - see below


 A dog the whole family can share and enjoy. One that is  hardy, outgoing, loyal and bold.  The preferred  height is around 28 cm (11 inches).  The weight should be in proportion  to the dog.  The coat is easy to care for as it is a short, smooth,  single coat.

Club Events


 Your committee organises Fun Days at  different venues throughout the year and events at these Fun Days vary  depending upon the season.  During the hot months we enjoy a cool  evening walk and at other times the agility equipment or lure chasing  machine is available. Dogs and owners enjoy these fun days which often  include a sausage sizzle with drinks and cakes.    

Looking for a Tenterfield?


  • PUPS  - The breeders mentioned on this website are registered with Dogswest and strive to keep the  Tenterfield Terrier Standard  in mind to breed dogs with conformation  true to the standard that also have good natures and minimum health  problems.   
  • RE-HOMING - On occasions a Tenterfield needs to find a new home which so contact the club if you are looking to rehome a dog or to offer a new home.

Do not be tempted to buy a Tenterfield Terrier puppy from a pet shop.  Talk to the Tenterfield Terrier Club before you buy.  There are too many heartbreaking stories to be told about pet shop puppies. 

The puppy you buy direct from a breeder is guaranteed to be vaccinated, micro-chipped and wormed.  If you want a pup as a pet or show dog you know it has had the best of care.    In most cases you can view one or both parents so you can get a better idea of how your puppy will grow up and what its temperament is likely to be.

 You will receive accredited papers from either the National Tenterfield Terrier Council of Australia and/or Canine of Australia Inc (DogsWest).  You may contact DogsWest to ensure the breeder is registered.  By purchasing a Tenterfield Terrier from a Club breeder you will receive  help and support of  experienced members of the Tenterfield Terrier Club of WA.  You will also be welcome as a club member.
