JACK RUSSELL TERRIER
An INTELLIGENT, ENERGETIC & DEVOTED
Jack Russell Terrier is a happy, energetic dog breed. They
are small in size, but their attitude and strength says
otherwise. Jack Russells are extremely alert, bold and loyal.
They have amusing personalities and their cleverness will
Russell Terrier’s make a great companion, becoming extremely
loyal to their owner(s) and insist on entertaining everyone.
They also require much affection and attention, as well
as firm boundaries. The Jack Russell has won the hearts
of many dog lovers all over the world.
Jack Russell Terrier is extremely friendly, playful and
boisterous. They have remarkable intelligence, and require
the proper dominance training. In fact, their intelligence,
while one of their more favorable characteristics, can also
make them difficult to control at times.
a terrier, Jack’s naturally enjoy the great outdoors, and
love to hunt. However, they also love to play games inside,
and are just as happy playing fetch as they would be chasing
after a squirrel.
to their limitless energy, the Jack Russell Terrier can
be a handful, and this is another reason why properly training
the JRT is an absolute must. Furthermore, although they
have a gentle and friendly temperament, they will not tolerate
any abuse, even that which is unintentional, from children.
Jack’s enjoy playing with children, but the child needs
to understand how to play with the dog. For this reason,
a Jack Russell Terrier is not recommended for families with
young children under the age of six.
Characteristics and Temperament
Jack Russell is a happy, bold, energetic dog; they are extremely
loyal, intelligent, assertive, and entertaining. Their greatest
attribute is their working ability, closely followed by
their excellent qualities as a companion. The unique personality
of this feisty terrier is rapidly gaining popularity, but
they are not a dog for everyone, especially first time dog
owners. While adaptable to to a variety of environments,
they are first and foremost bred to hunt.
dogs come in three different coat types; smooth, broken,and
rough. All coats shed, however, the hairs are heavy and
do not tend to float around. Jack Russells are adaptable
to most climates, and usually handle the cold fine, although
some dogs will need a dog blanket or sweater if it is really
color of the coat must be at least 51% white, or all white.
Black and/or tan markings are very common. Height can be
between 10" and 15", with a proportionate body length.
showing purposes, Jack Russell terriers are classified
in two groups, 10" to 12 1/2" and over 12 1/2" to 15".
should be compact and balanced, always in solid, hard
condition, while also being supple and flexible. Jack
Russells have a short, upright tail, about 4" long. Within
three days of birth, the front dewclaws are removed and
the tail is cropped to result in an adult tail just long
enough for a human hand to grab and pull the Jack out
of a fox hole.
Russell Terrier History
Russell’s have been around for about 200 years and originated
in southern England. The Jack Russell Terrier was bred for
fox hunting, particularly the European red foxes as Jack’s
could also hunt them under ground.
official name of the Jack Russell Terrier is the Parson
Russell Terrier. Their official name came from Reverend
John Russell, a famous British huntsman who was renowned
for his use of terriers for his passion of fox hunting.
The Reverend received the nickname “The Sporting Parson”.
That is how his terriers that he bred earned the name Parson
The Parson Russell Terrier has several distinctions that
make them a cut above the average terrier. He has a compact
chest that is long and flexible, a strong muzzle and head
to hold the fox, and lengthy legs that allow him to keep
up with hounds on the hunt. Today’s Jack Russell Terrier
is a credit to his origin, and the hunting instinct is well
inbred into his nature.
are the television Jack Russell Terriers?
"Eddie" on the television show Frasier. He is a rough coat.
"Milo" from the movie "The Mask" is a smooth coat. The puppy
in the RCA commercial. "Barkley" from the movie "Clean Slate"
with Dana Carvey. More recent has been a terrier in an MCI
commercial. Also, the Nissan commercial has a JRT in it,
and there is a pizza commercial where a JRT and a shaggy
dog lick sauce off a giggling child's face. The PBS show
"Wishbone" features the JRT Wishbone.
Jack Russell Terriers as energetic as they seem?
Jack Russell Terriers are very energetic dogs, with a big
need for regular exercise. They are working dogs, and need
to have a job, whether it be keeping your yard free of rodents
(digging is normal and common, since they are bred to dig
after quarry), chasing a ball, or going for a run or long
walk with it's owner. Sitting alone on the couch peacefully
all day is not in a Jack Russell's agenda. They require
more of a time commitment than some breeds.
Will a Jack Russell be happy in an apartment situation?
Given the exercise requirements of the Jack Russell, a home
with a large, fenced yard is more appropriate. Until they
reach old age, they do not take well to inactive, sedentary
lifestyles. However, if you are at home during the day or
are able to provide regular exercise, it may work. They
need a 5-6 foot high fence, since they are known to jump,
climb, and even dig under fences. Many of the Jack Russells
in the Rescue are there because the owner underestimated
the attention requirements of the terrier.
Will a Jack Russell Terrier get along with my cat, other
pets, and children?
Cats and other small pets (rodents) will usually not work
with a Jack Russell because these dogs are first and foremost
hunting dogs. They see the cat or hamster/rat/guinea pig
as prey (quarry). This is not true for all Jack
Russells, and if brought into the household as a pup, most
could be trained to live with a cat. Jack Russells
will not put up with abusive behavior from a child, and
may react defensively if a crawling or toddling child makes
growling sounds or grabs the dog's toys or treats. This
should be carefully considered, particularly with children
Jack Russell Terriers aggressive?
They can be very territorial and aggressive with other dogs,
and it is rare that two same-sex adult JRT's, who have not
been spayed / neutered, will get along with each other.
Of course, a male and female pair get along with each other
regardless of status.
About Terrier Trials
the Jack Russell Terrier Trial is made
up of three divisions: conformation, go-to-ground, and racing.
Obedience, agility, and search 'n' sniff are also being
included more often in these events.
Conformation classes are judged much like
any other dog show. The winner is the dog that most closely
matches the breed standard. In addition to conformation
and movement, the dog is judged on temperment; as in all
things having to do with Jack Russells, the best working
dog is being sought.
consists of wooden liners placed in a trench dug
in the ground. They are made to resemble as closely as possible
natural earth where a dog might encounter fox or other prey.
At the end of the course is a cage with two or three rats.
The terrier is judged on how quickly it it gets to the liners
and finds the rats, and on how it "worries" its quarry.
The judge wants to see the Jack Russell bark, growl, dig
The Racing division is probably what first
attracts and most excites both terriers and owner at these
trials. A sanctioned track is at least 150 feet long, and
is a straight course (sometimes with jumps added) with a
starting box at one end and a stack of hay bales with a
hole in the middle (the finish line) at the other. A lure
(usually a piece of scented fur) is attached to a piece
of string that is pulled along by a generator. The dogs
are muzzled for safety because of the excitement. The first
dog through the hole in the haybales is the winner--and
the winner, despite the impediment of the muzzle, usually
has the lure clamped firmly between its teeth.

to Train Your Terrier to Race
can start race training of your terrier in your own back yard.
The idea is to get them used to chasing a lure so that when
they are in a real race, they will know what to do.
the following items to assist in the training:
String and Lure - Tie a piece of fur (a sock
will work also) to a 20 foot piece of string Racing Muzzle - to get your terrier used to
Tease the terrier with the fur (to get its attention)
Run away from your terrier with the lure trailing behind you
Let your terrier catch the fur so that it will be a satisfying
experience for it. Repeat these steps several times.
Hurdles - Build simple hurdles from inexpensive
PVC piping. Drag the lure over the hurdle to get your terrier
to jump. It works!
The best practice for racing is to actually run your terrier
in a real race (i.e., with other terriers, muzzles, spectators,
etc). Attend a fun day for good practice.
Start your terrier racing at a young age (4 months). Don't let
them race over large hurdles since their joints are still growing!
Don't let your terrier overheat.
a "softie" muzzle or a basket muzzle; mickey and figure-eight
muzzles are illegal as the terriers are unable to breathe properly
Practice makes perfect - rarely does a first time racing terrier
do well. Normally they either sit in the starting box, play with
their muzzle, or run the wrong direction. Don't quit after the first
failure. Jack Russells are smart and catch on quickly.
Jack Russell terrier races the dogs run after a scented lure to
a 'wall' (usually made of straw bales or something) where there
is a small hole that's big enough for only one dog to go through.
The first to the wall isn't necessarily the first through the
hole and sometimes the dogs get a little competitive.
Allow your terrier to watch some of the races to get excited.
After awhile, you probably won't have to do this since your terrier
will know when it's race time.
If your terrier starts a fight, work to stop this behavior immediately.
Fighting terriers are dismissed since they can disrupt the outcome
of the race and are a danger to the other terriers and the catchers.
Cool down your terrier after each race (some owners will "dunk"
their terriers in a large barrel of water after each race). You
can use a mist spray bottle and offer your terrier plenty of water.
