Character: Jack Russell Terriers are brave, yet boisterous dogs. They are watchful and confident, so serve as protectors toward their owners.
Temperament: This breed gets along well with children, other dogs, and most household pets. However, they may tend to try to 'hunt' the family cat, so careful training is required. This breed may also try to dominate other dogs (even large ones!).
Care: Coat care for the smooth type consists only of weekly brushing to remove dead hair; for the broken coat it also consists of occasional hand stripping.
Training: This breed learns quickly, but can be a bit mischievous. Take a firm and consistent approach for best results.
