Jack Russell Terrier Puppies Sleeping

Their high energy and drive make these dogs ideally suited to a number of different dog sports such as flyball or agility.Obedience classes are also recommended to potential owners,as Jack Russells can be stubborn at times and aggressive towards other animals and humans if not properly socialized.

Despite their small size, these dogs are not recommended for the condominium or apartment dweller unless the owner is ready to take on the daunting task of providing the dog with the necessary amount of exercise and stimulation.

They have a tremendous amount of energy for their size, a fact which can sometimes lead to trouble involving larger animals.They may seem never to tire and will still be energetic after their owner has called it a day. While socialised members of the breed are friendly towards children, they will not tolerate abuse even if it is unintentional.
