Jack Russells are well known to be serial barkers. They can be set off by the slightest noise, a stranger arriving, spotting another animal - or just about anything else. You need to consider what is causing the barking in the first place. It's hard to get rid of normal, instinctual barking, but excessive barking that is really a problem is usually a learned behavior. Barking can be handy if there happens to be a burglar breaking into your house, but often it just causes a headache. If your dog is barking too much, teaching it the Speak command can give you more control over when it barks.
Also try experimenting with the dog's living conditions.
For example, let the dog sleep inside instead of outside, or vice versa. There may be a simple cause for the barking in the dogs environment. Alternating, whenever the dog barks, use it as a cue to start the next training session, get its attention and work on one of the commands listed below. If all else fails, there are special ultrasonic and electric collars available which can eliminate barking. Find out more about the various causes of excessive barking and what you can do to stop dogs barking , and learn an effective technique for dealing with Jack Russell barking problems.
Begging for food. It's not a good idea to give your dog scraps from the dinner table unless he's done something to earn it. He will start to think there's food on offer every time you sit down to eat. If you want to give your dog a scrap, get him to perform a basic command such as Sit or Stay first, and use the scrap as a reward. Destroying property. If your Jack Russell has a habit of chewing your favorite shoes or the sofa, it may be a sign that the dog isn't getting enough exercise. Increase the number of walks and the length of time you walk the dog for.
Destruction can also be a sign that the dog is getting bored during long periods when there's no one at home. Destroying things is actually a sign of affection - it means your dog misses you. If you think this is the case, there are a few solutions. You can train the dog to become used to being alone by slowly expanding its comfort zone and leaving it alone for longer and longer periods. If this isn't an option, you'll need to re-arrange your schedule so your dog can see more of you, or consider hiring a dog sitter.
Counter-intuitive though it may seem, getting another JRT to keep your dog company may reduce the destruction problem. You could rescue a JRT from a shelter and save its life - and your shoes. Growling and aggression. This may be a sign that your dog hasn't been socialized enough.
For the energetic Jack Russell, training begins with meeting other dogs. The solution to socialization problems is to slowly introduce your dog to other dogs and new people. I recommend getting a muzzle for this. Be aware though - it may also be a sign of ill health and require a trip to the vet, especially if the aggression comes with other symptoms. The dog may be in pain. It can also be the result of an imbalance in the dominant-submissive roles between you and the dog.
Here are some more tips on how to deal with an aggressive Jack Russell Terrier. Going to the toilet inside. This is completely natural with puppies and you will have to house-train a new pup.
If an older dog is soiling inside, it may be a sign of illness. Watch for signs of blood in the urine or unusually frequent urination. It can also be the result of submissiveness on the part of the dog, in which case punishment will only make the problem worse.
As with destroying property it may also be the result of anxiety caused by your absence or a lack of attention and it should be treated with the same training as I recommend for destructive behavior. Try housebreaking the dog again and if the problem continues, see the vet. Play-biting in puppies is completely normal and can eventually be trained out with a light tap on the nose and a firm "no" when the biting hurts. Holding the pup's muzzle shut for a few seconds can also help - this is a technique based on natural parental dog habits.
Aggressive snapping and biting in older dogs is a problem that needs serious attention, as a court may order your dog to be put down if it bites another dog or a person depending where you live.
Running away. As an escape-artist, the average Jack Russell puts Houdini to shame. There's not a lot you can do to train your dog out of this.
Spaying and neutering can curb the tendency, as most escape attempts are for made so that the dog can go roaming to look for a mate. Apart from that, Jack Russell-proof your back yard and make sure visitors always shut the gate.
You can also keep the dog inside when you're not around and provide it a newspapered toilet area. As hunting dogs, JRTs are born to dig. Being a keen gardener and being a Jack Russell owner do not go well together.
If your JRT digs up everything in sight, more exercise may be the solution. Fence off your garden and lay chicken wire or mesh under the dirt at the bottom of any fences, so your dog can't dig its way out. Being hyperactive. Most Jack Russells qualify as hyperactive by nature, so this is not abnormal. Generally speaking if hyperactivity in a dog bothers you - choose a different breed. Jerry B. Kathryn Lee.
