Tributes to Elisabeth Matell

We said our last goodbyes to Elisabeth Matell 
at the Service of Celebration for her life 
on Thursday 22nd November at Cheltenham Cemetery & Crematorium.  

The Revd Mike Rogers, the vicar from Berrow, took the service. 

Lynn Ward held her Norfolk, Poppy, in her arms when she read 
the words from Isaiah chapter 11: verses 1 to 9, and spoke about Elisabeth. 
There were at least three other Norfolks present in the chapel. 

Further moving tributes followed from Kenneth Eliasson and Andrew Brace.

Current Health Projects


The Health Snapshot

The Health Snapshot is a scheme where owners and breeders of Norfolk Terriers in the UK are invited to report notable conditions diagnosed in their dogs to the Club.

This information is useful for finding out if certain conditions are becoming more frequent than one would expect in the Norfolk Terrier and dogs in general.

Health Statement

The Norfolk Terrier Club of Great Britain


The Norfolk Terrier Club of Great Britain and its Breed Health Subcommittee take great interest in the health of the breed. The Breed Health Subcommittee produces a health statement for the Kennel Club each year, and has a practicing veterinary surgeon as its coordinator. ‘Health’ is on the agenda of every committee meeting and the Annual General Meeting.

Feeding, Weight & Teeth

Feeding Your Norfolk Terrier

There are so many excellent brands of dog food currently on the market that feeding any type of dog (least of all a Norfolk Terrier) should not be a problem – Norfolk Terriers are generally very easy to please when it comes to feeding, in fact they will eat just about anything and everything they can get their paws on, which can be an issue in itself!   Depending on your circumstances and preference you can either go for a complete meal, the traditional meat and biscuits or a raw food diet.
