Never come back
by: Anonymous

Never let your JR lose - they may come back for yr's then all of a sudden they may never come back again--when they get something in their sight they have a one track mind--and its not you!! They can climb a 6ft chain link fence or dig under anything especialy when bored!! A trolley line is the best with a harness a JR's trachea is very sensitive and can easily be damaged by collars on leashes ect... never jerk your JR by the collar or let them do it.

Recall Skills & JRT's
by: Anonymous

My Jack is 3+ yrs and he is impossible about recall! I have trained him with the leash and treats. He comes in the house, on the leash, but not if he escapes, no matter what I have in hand! A fenced play area or a trolley line for play time are a must. I run toward the golf course and driving range, away from the road and I cry a lot when he gets away! (which is not often, for sure).
Good luck! Mine did not run away so young as yours! You need to walk the Jack every day for a good long time!

My 2yr old male JRT does the samething - he is areal escape artist and then feels it is a game for me to chase him while he runs down the road. I have learned to keep a few treats and a small squeeky toy in my pocket for such incidents - so far they seem to be working - good luck and she is soooo cute.
