Why Jack Russell Terrier racing is such an ideal sport for these little snow plough dogs.
Jack Russell Terriers are one of the feistiest types of terrier around. They are spirited, well-muscled little dogs with a keen hunting sense and absolutely no fear at all. That said they do when they eventually come down from their power trip of little man syndrome make wonderful pets but only under a strict and wilful master/mistress. These little dogs will not only take an inch they will take the whole world.

So how do you keep these little bulldozers in check?
A run around the park with lots of other dogs may be a no, no, as these little terriers tend to make up their own rules.
Agility is a good way to let off steam but you need a well controlled dog to start with and many Jack Russell terriers won’t do anything for nothing and they may not see the point of running and jumping over things with no real destination at the end.
