A beautiful, mature Rat Terrier doesn’t happen overnight. Hence you can expect to spend lots of doggy time guiding your Rat Terrier into full adulthood. When your Rat Terrier is still young, socialize your little pupper often to new sights, sounds and smells. Browse outdoor shopping malls together, invite guests into your home and enjoy window shopping downtown to prepare your Rat Terrier for the ropes of life.
