Hello Other Jack Russell Owners

I have written on here once or twice for help with my little Lexie. She is a 7 month pure breed Jack Russell and I am a first time Jack Russell owner and everything is going good with her training. She is potty trained and understands the word no. But I need help, I cannot no matter what get her to sit stay or lay down or anything with out treats. When I try to to get her too with out a treat, she looks at me and walks away or if I catch her and make her sit, she sits while I am holding her but the moment I let go she's gone and I don't know what to do. Any helpful tips please?

JRT is brilliant and clever, he just has his own way and character. The key is to be patient, calm-submissive and always be his leader.

I learn a lot from the book CESAR'S WAY.

Great Start
by: MJ

It sounds like you have you have made a great start! But be patient. She is only 7 months old and STILL training. Be consistent and make her work for everything important to her. Example: make her "down" and stay before giving her dinner, make her "sit" before going outside. In her everyday life, have her earn her desires. This should help cement the idea that you are leader and in control. But it takes longer that 7 months to get this across.

I have my 7 month old Jack Russell in agility skills class right now and am finding that this is helping her attention and obedience greatly! She seems to love it and is learning that pleasing me means fun.

Best of Luck. You will get there!

Lexie's Training
by: mary-harborview


If you can I would check into a local puppy class and get some training with a trainer. Join the class for Lexie's age and make it a beginner's class. This would do two things for you and Lexie. First and probably most important, Lexie would get socialization with other people and other dogs. This will help later with walking her around where other dogs will be and you will get the help you need in training her to do what you want and most important lesson you will learn before sitting is "come". Good Luck
