Why not love your JRTs by playing ball?
Jack Russell Terriers… I always call mine, the Jack Russell Terrorists… Because they ARE little devils. These mangy mutts are absolutely filled to the top with craziness and hyperactive energy. When they are pumped… They’re pumped, not just for 10 minutes like regular dogs. Like an hour. Then of course, there’s the sweet moments with my dogs. I, personally, love playing ball with my dogs, to relieve my energy and theirs. The best is racket balls. The reason is of course they bounce the most, and are great for indoors activities because they don’t leave dents, like tennis balls would if you played like I did with my Jack Russells.
So, Now, all you need is your JRT and you’re ready to play. Now recently I’ve been trying to play keep away, but until last week I found out, the dogs will like to play more and become more loyal if they get their way. As in, if you make it easy for them to get the ball, they’ll be more accepting of you, you’re “Play tactics” and What not.
Also, one thing to notice is that when you have 2 dogs, they need 2 balls in play, or else they fight. Which you CAN see in my video. Of course its harmless puppy play. And all dogs do this you think. And you’re right, but once one dog gets territorial over the ball, it gets rougher as well, and will be more prone to becoming harmful against other dogs and humans alike.
Anyways, now, to play all you need now is the wall. The way I played! This is a fun method for the dog and the human, of course because its rougher for the dogs to get it, and you’re playing a game of catch, like you used to with good ol’ dad. But… with a bland ol’ door. Oh well, technicalities, Anyways…
The Dogs like the keep away game less than the other because they want to chew on it, and have it with them, not being flung around near and around them, but… They can still enjoy it, if you make it easy for them once in a while and let them have the ball. Anyways, watch my video, comment, subscribe. Oh, and tell me what you think of my article and my beautiful JRTs.
