THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT.....
by: ScooterMama59

Hello,
Thanks for your input, sure gives me a break, so that I can head to Turkey for a week!
Definitely recommend anything from the dogwhispers, around the world.
Excellent advise for most of the JRT's/mixes. I have had one that changed later in life, so I tried the advice I gave, and IT WORKED! That's what's so great about training JRT's, every once in awhile you get one that doesn't follow the "set plan" of training. That's why they make me laugh and smile everyday of my life!
Have a great day in the USA!

Establishing Dominance
by: Simon

Hello,

My wife and I love your puppy, she reminds us of our JRT when Milo was that young. I used to let Milo 'mouth' my finger and used that to train her not to bite. I wouldn't use the phrase 'Good Girl' though, I would just let her 'mouth' and when she got too rough I would simply and firmly say "NO". In the beginning she would still try and get my finger and all I would need to do was give her another "NO" but this time I would also simulate biting her (Thumb and first 2 fingers, shape like a claw and touch firmly at her neck). This corrected her and within a week she was responding to "OWW" if it was too hard and she would stop and lick where she had nibbled.

She is now 2 years old and does not bite at all and nor is she 'aggressive'. We also play tug of war with her too the rule here is to establish and maintain dominance. Yes she is a terrier so yes she doesn't know when to stop, this is why you have to tell her when to stop. They want to do these things, it is in their nature but they also want to be loyal to you and do the tasks you set them to do.

As long as you maintain a strong exercise, discipline, affection routine with your dog (The dog whisperer is pretty spot on with this) you will have a very happy and content JRT that will bring you nothing but fun and joy at every interaction. Your Jack Russell Terrier needn't be a Jack Russell Terror, you just have to be a strong leader for them to follow and give them plenty of activities to keep them happy. We love our Milo and I fully recommend the dog whisperer, we watched all of his shows and read his books, he has some sound advice and we followed it to the best of our ability and we have the best addition to our family that we could have hoped for. I hope you have just as much joy with your puppy that we have had with ours.

NOT A GOOD HABIT FOR LULU OR YOUR HUSBAND!
by: ScooterMama59

Hello Again,
NO, this is not a good habit for LuLu or any other JRT/mix. She will become aggressive if you allow this behavior to continue. Explain to your husband concerning the JRT disposition. If you let them bite your hand, they learn very quickly that they can use this to get what they want. Also, never play tug-of-war with a toy and your JRT. This makes them aggressive and they learn negative behaviors from this sort of play.
It all seems so cute and innocent, but this is the most crucial time for LuLu's learning about what is OK behavior, right now. She is smart and will use what she learns for positive or negative actions. You set the pace. Let her continue biting and the next step will be growling and showing you that she is the BOSS over you and your household. You must show her that you are the BOSS even in play and that she must obey and not be agressive towards other dogs or people.
It's no fun having a dog that you can't take to the dog park/park or have company over because you trained the dog in this way.
Let me know how things go with this. If you need help in breaking this negative habit, I'll direct you in that as well.
P.S. I would have your husband read this!
Stef, Belgium, JRT lover and trainer!

PERFECTLY NORMAL FOR A JRT!!
by: Anonymous

Hello,
Yes, she is a real beauty! Almost all or most JRT's have these markings. They kind of look like dalmation markings sometimes.
No need to worry, just train, love and enjoy that beautiful girl of yours!
GOD bless and many happy years together!
