Additional Irish Terrier Comments
To Train or not to train. for an Irish Terrier puppy, it will be well advised to find an experienced terrier trainer. Balance with proper socialization early on in your puppy's life. Get your puppy accustomed to nail trimming and grooming now. You don't necessarily need to groom an I.T. puppy, but get them used to the feel of a smooth soft bristle baby brush (for example). If you wait until later, it will not go as smoothly.

Choosing an Irish Terrier puppy with a sweet temperament is important, but no guarantee forever. Be very wise when introducing to other dogs, make sure they are also very nice dogs. If exposed to aggressive behavior, an Irish Terrier will of course defend itself, and there will be no turning back. Avoid situations where your pup is forced to defend itself. That is your job, to keep your puppy safe at all times and in every situation.
