1. Intelligence- Biewer Terriers are pretty smart and shouldn't be too hard to train for a first time owner. That being said, they are also a bit mischievous so don't expect too much from them. Socialize them early for the best results with other pets, which they usually get along with fine. Although not yappy dogs, they may bark at the approach of a strangers-- if they are bored this can get out of hand.
2. Kids, Strangers, Pets- If you have children that have been taught how to carefully handle a fragile pet, than this breed is an excellent addition to your family because they LOVE attention; rough play can easily injure them. After the initial introduction members of this breed will be friendly around strangers but it's not unheard of for them to be a bit shy. If well socialized, they get along just fine with other pets and having another dog may lessen anxiety when you aren't home.
3. Exercise- These tiny dogs will be active indoors. Apart from a few short walks, they don't require any stringent exercise routine. A few toys will help keep them occupied while alone.
