Constant shedding lots of white hairs everywhere Mouthiness — chewing on things, carrying things around, mouthing your hands in play Potential aggression toward other animals A Parson Jack Russell Terrier may not be right for you. Keep in mind that the inheritance of temperament is less predictable than the inheritance of physical traits such as size or shedding. Temperament and behavior are also shaped by raising and training.
With an adult dog, you can easily see what you're getting, and plenty of adult Jack Russell Terriers have already proven themselves not to have negative characteristics. If you want a puppy, you can avoid some negative traits by choosing the right breeder and the right puppy. Unfortunately, you usually can't tell whether a puppy has inherited temperament or health problems until he grows up.
The dynamic terrier temperament. Most terrier breeds are remarkably similar. The same words are used over and over -- quick to bark, quick to chase, lively, bossy, feisty, scrappy, clever, independent, stubborn, persistent, impulsive, intense. Providing enough exercise and mental stimulation. Jack Russell Terriers need regular opportunities to vent their energy and do interesting things.
These dogs are so smart that I hate to see them in homes where they're expected to just hang around the house and yard. Jack Russells were never intended to be simply household pets.
Trying to suppress their drives to hunt and explore, without providing alternate outlets for their energy, results in a frustrated and bored Jack Russell — and frustrated, bored Jack Russells can "act out" in ways that you won't like. Jack Russell Terriers thrive when you find interesting things for them to do that challenge their minds, such as agility training obstacle course , advanced obedience training, flyball, or "earthdog" training where terriers dig and tunnel after small critters who are secured in a sturdy cage so they can't be harmed.
Many Jack Russell Terriers are dominant or aggressive toward other dogs. Two Jack Russells should not be left alone together — one may kill the other over possession of a toy. Most Jack Russells also have strong instincts to chase and seize small fleeing creatures. Many Jack Russell Terriers are clever escape artists who will go over or under fences in search of adventure.
You may need higher fences than you might imagine for their small size. They can climb chain link. You may also need to sink wire into the ground along the fence line to thwart digging. Gates should have the highest quality locks, as some of these dogs can open flimsy latches. Constant shedding shorthaired coat. The shorthaired Jack Russell Terrier sheds year-round. You'll find little white hairs all over your clothing and furnishings.
Some owners actually get rid of their Jack Russell just because of the shedding. The rough wiry-type coat also sheds, but its dead hairs are often trapped in the wiry coat rather than falling on the floor. But the rough coat requires more grooming. Mind of their own. Though much more amenable to training than other terriers, Jack Russells must be taught at an early age that they are not the rulers of the world.
The toughness that makes them suited to killing vermin can frustrate you when you try to teach them anything. Many Jack Russell Terriers love learning tricks, but less so the "No" command. Some Jack Russells are stubborn and bossy and you must show them, through absolute consistency, that you mean what you say.
