Jack Russell Terriers grow to 10-12in (25-30cm) in height.

They are active dogs so they need some form of exercise
– walks or playing with the owners.

Obedience training and socialisation are important for
a happy,
healthy JRT.
All JRTs need regular brushing to help with shedding.
They shed all year round.

Broken and rough coated dogs also need their
coats ‘stripped’ regularly to keep the coat harsh
and water proof. (Ask your puppy’s breeder to show
you this grooming technique).

Jack Russell Terriers need a family that will spend
plenty of time with their active, little dog.
They are people-orientated.

They are suited to older children, but can happily live with
young children so long as they are always supervised
together to prevent them from hurting one another.

Jack Russell Terriers participate in Conformation
(Dog Shows),
Obedience, Agility, Racing,
and Earthdog. The more activities,
the better for your dog!
Train, train and more training for a
well-adjusted dog.



There is no such thing as a "teacup" Jack Russell Terrier.

It is a myth that smooth coat JRTs are non-shedding.
They shed all year round.

The runt of the litter will not always grow into a smaller sized adult.

There is a perception that all small, tan and white smooth-coated terriers are
Jack Russell Terriers. Please check that you are buying a purebred
Jack Russell Terrier by contacting the breed club in your state.
