They are a very active and well balanced breed of dog, and does not have a tendency to display much nervousness. They are known to be loving, and get along well with children. Norwich Terriers need activities to occupy their time, and will dig holes and bark if they are left outside alone for long periods of time with nothing to do. They are fairly easy to train but do require a lot of consistency. They are only moderately active indoors, which allows them to be fine in apartment as long as they get sufficient exercise.
