The Ups and Downs of Owning Biewers

Posted on April 1, 2019  in Uncategorized

Biewer Terriers are my absolute favorite dog breed! I have three—need I say more? They are just adorable and would love you to pieces. Lately, I’ve been getting questions on why I adore them so much and how life is living with my delightful Bixy, Luna and Lancelot. Well, life is perfect!

Since Biewer Terriers are a rare breed and still relatively new, I’ve decided to share some useful information on the breed for prospective owners out there.

Biewer Terriers originated in Germany. They are the result of a cross between two Yorkshire terriers that expressed a recessive gene. Their name can be pronounced exactly like Beaver, the animals known for building canals and dams. It is also sometimes pronounced as BeeVeyr. Take your pick.

The Ups…

Biewers are known for their sweet, cheerful and friendly personality. They are very devoted and make great companions. Biewers are also wonderfully playful and won’t fail to entertain you with their cute little selves. If you want a pet who will make you love their clownish antics, then the Biewer is your dog.

They love to be the center of attention and would prefer to hang out with you all the time. They’re not too difficult to train as they love to be the star of the show. Biewers may show their mischievous side once in a while. When I first got Luna, she was quite the diva and was a tad more difficult to potty train than the other two. Consistency, generous praises and positive reinforcement did the trick.

These toy terriers adjust well to apartment living and don’t need too much exercise. Well, they’re actually perfect, no matter the size of your home and family. They are good with children and not difficult to introduce to strangers. My nieces and nephews love my Biewers. Socialize them well and early and they will get on with just about everybody. Small body, big heart. Kids and other pets will make these tiny dogs happy. The more, the merrier for my trio. More people and pets equal more attention, right?

They are also active but unlike other terrier breeds, Biewers don’t generally have the overwhelming urge to chase prey or dig in the garden. They’d much prefer a leisurely walk or playing with you indoors.

And Downs…or simply, things be aware of.

Biewers are known for their beautiful and silky tri‐color coats that require great care. They would need to be brushed daily and bathed at least once a week. In all fairness, these dogs are itty‐bitty so grooming won’t really take as much time as other, bigger dogs.

Yes, they’re really tiny so they are also very fragile and should be handled with care. I make sure to always be around to supervise play between my dogs and other animals, and small children. They may be small but fearless terrier blood still runs in them. Biewers are known to overconfidently walk up to and confront bigger, meaner dogs. Be on the lookout and try to discourage rough play with other pets.

They are not typically yappy but Biewers do have a high‐pitched bark. This does make them good watch dogs but too much may irritate the neighbors. It’s best to train them well and nip excessive barking in the bud.

Biewers are clever but they can get a bit bossy. I never had a problem with Bixy and Lancelot but my Luna has had this issue. It’s important to establish that you’re the leader of the pack, early on. Behavioral problems are not unheard of with improperly trained or poorly socialized Biewers. Luckily for me, with proper training and lots of love, Luna turned into a lovely, affectionate angel.

The Best Detail Sander: Building a Doghouse, Part I

Posted on May 31, 2017  in Uncategorized

Now this is not strictly related to Biewers, but something I thought I’d cover on this blog anyway since the question came up when I was building my first doghouse.

When it comes to choosing the best product that fits your purposes, hearing advices from experienced users is much needed. Of course, we can’t just go to a store and pick a detail sander without having any idea on how it will actually work on real situations. I used the reviews over at Woodworkify to choose the best detail sander for my woodworking projects.

So, with those things being said, we are going to discuss about how to choose the best detail sander for your woodworks. We are not going to talk about the complicated technicalities involved in detail sanders since those things will only add to your confusion. Simplifying things would be a better route.


The power of the detail sander is one of the most important features that should be checked if you want to purchase one. It depends on how serious you are on your woodworking activity. If you are already have a lot of experience using this kinds of machines, you can definitely go with high-powered detail sanders.

However, if you are still new to these type of activities, then you should aim for more control. You can choose detail sanders with lesser power but provide more control. Multi-purpose tools are quite popular since they do more functions apart from sanding. But, they do have more power.


What type of detail sander do you specifically need? Well, as usual it depends on the situation on which you intend to use the sander. If you think that you will be working on projects with a number of edges and corners, you would be better with a smaller finish sander. Larger projects will most likely require a palm sander, which will make you feel comfortable while doing the task.

Corded vs. Cordless Detail Sander

This topic is a matter of personal preferences, but we will talk about its effect on your woodworking activities. Well, if you have a corded detail sander, the distance from the outlet to the object that you are working on will be limited. But, if you have a cordless detail sander, you will have the freedom to choose the location of your woodworking activity. Also, the absence of wires gives you less hassle.


Of course, you would want a detail sander that doesn’t weigh that much. Imagine if you are doing woodworks that requires great maneuverability, a heavy detail sander will most likely affect your performance and tire you out easily. However, the quality of the tool is still the most important of all the features – the best detail sander will combine all those features, but will not necessarily be cheap.

A warm welcome to all Biewer owners

Hi, my name is Sandy and I’d like to welcome you to my new blog about the Biewers. Since you are here you probably what a Biewer is, but in case you don’t, you should know that a Biewer is a breed of dogs, originally from Germany. They are a very rare breed and there are few Biewer owners or breeders around the world.

Since the Biewer is such a lovely dog breed, I thought it is necessary to create a place where dog owners and enthusiasts can come together to find out more about and discuss these wonderful little creatures. This is why I created this site. It’s in the very first stages at the moment and there isn’t much here, but I will be adding lots of useful articles and links very soon that will show you how to take care of your little furry friends.

Please share this with any people you know who have or might be interested in owning a Biewer dog. This would mean a lot to me. Thank you!
