In this paper, we study the improvement and manipulation of pairwise thermal entanglement in one-dimentional three-qubit Heisenberg model, where Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya （DM） interaction is considered and concurrence is calculated to research this entanglements property. The results show that for XXX model, DM interaction can induce entanglement in the antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic spin chains although the required critical values are different for these cases. For XXZ model, by introducing DM interaction D, antiferromagnetic spin chain has entanglement which is absent when D=0, and in addition, for antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic cases, DM interaction D and the anisotropy parameter Δ have different effects on entanglement. As a result, the entanglement can be controlled and enhanced by choosing appropriate DM interaction and anisotropy parameter. Furthermore, we find that at the same temperature, no matter for antiferromagnetic or ferromagnetic spin chains, the critical DM interaction inducing entanglement should be greater in a three-qubit XXZ model than that in a two-qubit XXZ model.
