Every dog owner will definitely feel proud and happy if Fido goes potty on command, does not jump on people either chew the furniture and other household stuff. Certainly, having a reliably trained Jack Russell terrier is one of the joys of having a canine companion and this may be attributed to successful jack Russell training.
Being energetic, intelligent and fearless breed, a Jack Russell terrier may not excel in agility obedience or hunting. A jack Russell may excel when training is provided, in doing dog tricks. It is important that when training dog tricks:
There has to be a medium of communication between you and your puppy. Try to comprehend their signals and answers since dogs can't talk the way humans do. Know that a dog that's distracted, nervous, happy, confused, stressed or sick won't learn is trying to communicate.
Training has to be completed in a step by step procedure. Don't expect that your puppy will perfect the "play dead" trick without needing to master the basic commands such as "come", "down" or sit. Start in the fundamental and move your way up from there.
Training sessions have to be enjoyable and interesting both for you and your puppy. It's an advantage if they're physically challenged to keep them and mentally. It is suggested to keep training sessions short.
Training sessions must end with rewards and praise to associate the training with something good and positive. Doing this will make him look forward to enjoyable and interesting training sessions.
