ABOUT JACKS

The Jack Russell Terrier:

The Jack Russell is a bold, happy, energetic dog: they are extremely loyal and intelligent.  Their greatest attribute is their working ability, closely followed by their excellent qualities as a companion.  A Jack Russell can be equally contented bolting a fox or chasing a toy in your living room or a rat in your barn.  Their funny antics will continually amuse you; their intelligence seems to know no bounds.  They require an extraordinary amount of human attention. They have been known to train their owners more often then not. 

They never talk about themselves, but listen to you 

while you talk about yourself and keep up an 

appearance of being interested in the conversation. 

  

Temperament and Trainability:

Prospective owners of Jack Russellís should realize that terriers, indeed all dogs, show just as many variations in temperament as humans.  Jack Russellís have a soft and friendly behavior that never falters.  An excellent temperament is essential for any breed to be truly versatile.  A dog that is too independent does not tend to be a good training prospect and a dog that lacks self confidence can be just as difficult to train.  Temperament is one ingredient the Jack Russellís have that make them trainable and versatile.  No matter how well a dog is structured, or how beautiful it looks, if it cannot be trained and have its energy channeled in a positive way, it will make a very poor companion and versatility will soon be lost.   

A Variety of Tasks

Go to Ground

A trial event designed to simulate and test a Jack Russellís ability to hunt and work underground.  Although, more or less of a game, it is good training toward real earthwork and stimulates the natural instinct to hunt.

 

Obedience

Up for a challenge the Jack Russellís are excellent obedience dogs.  The dog is marked for extreme accuracy and the handler is also marked for deportment and footwork.

 

Agility

Agility is rather like horse show jumping.  The dog is trained to run a course off lead with its handler.  The course consists of jumps, tunnels, and other obstacles, and the fastest dog with the fewest faults wins.  For the Jack Russell it is an excellent event channeling excess energy and mental stimulation.

 

Racing

Besides being bright and entertaining, Jack Russellís are very fast.  Flyball is another sort of racing, with the dogs running down a race lane, with 4 jumps to retrieve balls from a box at the end.

 

Other Tasks

Jacks are also used successfully in Falconry, Herding, Police work, as therapy dogs, in Film and Television and multiple advertising campaigns.
