Jack Russel

HELP

by Kayce

I have an 8 year old male jack named Skip, and a 4 year old male jack named Jake. When we brought Jake into the mix everything was fine, until he turned 3. Jake started to attack Skip, at first is was just growling and there wasn't any blood shed. As time goes by the fights between them got more frequent and more violent. Yesterday was the worst Jake got a hold of Skip, and he is torn up really bad. Jake ripped a huge part of skin off of Skips face. I also noticed that Jake goes for Skip's neck when they are fighting. Please someone tell me how to fix this! Is this common in jack males?? What can I do?? The pics are Skip after latest fight.

Hi

I wonder if you can help me?

Three years ago we purchased 2 Jack Russell's dogs from the same litter. We trained then well but really struggled with them as they used to fight a lot we was advised after 1 year that we should never of got 2 from the same litter. After 2 1/2 years the fighting between then got 2 much and we decided they needed separating as one then began peeing all over the house. 1t went yo my friends as is doing great, as is the one that stayed with us. I find that he is quiet protective over me so when the children want cuddles ect i always make sure if the dog is on my knee and make him get down 1st. He is good with other dogs when off the lead but can be snappy when on the lead. I have always been very careful with any dogs our family has had over the years around children as i think children around dogs can some times be a bad move and not worth the risk. Any way yesterday we had the children's friends over for tea and the dogs tea was on the side cooling (biscuits with warm water)when the kids all came in for tea. Without any warning the dog ran and bite a childs foot not just a snap he kept hold for a moment. It broke the skin and resulted in the child getting a jab at the hospital and a weeks anti biotics. The dog is now at my mums as i was so upset but now unsure what to do. One side of me thinks he must go and the other side thinks maybe he or we need trianing?????


Please Help

2 male JRT's- not a good mix
by: JRT lover in Calgary

I had a similar situation....my 2 male JRTS fought quite a few times. Blood was drawn, teeth were lost because they locked jaws on each other, had to throw them on our hot tub to break up fights etc etc etc....I trained them out of fighting and they started play wrestling most of the time. We spent 3 years training/correcting the bad behaviour and they got ALOT better and calmer around each other, but in the end it was too stressful for both male dogs to be around each other. We ended up giving one away. The one we kept is much calmer and much more obedient without the other one around. I truly think 2 male JRT's is a bad mix, its just the nature of the 'beast'. Best of luck to you though.
