What are the different types of wire-haired terriers?

Answer

Wire-haired terriers include most terriers like the Airedale, affenpinscher, miniature schnauzer and the border terrier. Wire-haired terriers have hard, wiry coats that need occasional plucking and brushing.

Often, wire-haired terriers make excellent pets for those suffering from allergies. They often require little more than weekly brushing, and plucking. Plucking is done by removing the undercoat of the animal by pinching the tuft between the thumb and forefinger and pulling it out. This removes the loose fur that accumulates underneath the dense wiry fur.

Often, owners of these dogs take their animals to a professional dog groomer to have the plucking procedure performed.
