I wrote The Jack Russell Lover’s Ultimate Guide to Training after coming up against frustration time and time again as a Jack Russell Terrier (JRT) owner.
I finally hit the point where I couldn’t take it anymore, so I researched dog training and experimented with various techniques until I came up with solutions perfectly suited to training Jack Russells. That’s how this book was born.
That’s me with my dog Runty, back in the days when I worked at a wildlife park. Unlike virtually everyone else selling a "Jack Russell specific" training ebook, I really do own and train Jack Russells.
I won’t bore you with all the details. I’ll just tell you exactly what you get when you buy this ebook.
As a puppy owner, there’s no reason to let problem behaviors develop (as they ALWAYS do with Jack Russells, unless you take action).
And if you’re already fed up and stressed out with your Jack’s bad behavior, there’s no reason to put up with it anymore.

My children are also reading the book because everybody has to be involved. I have encouraged them to read it, and finally they are doing it, and they are enjoying it so far!
I want to thank you for making such a deep study on Jack Russells. All the things you say in your book are so true! The characteristics of the breed, how they are hunters, everything! They are great dogs! And your book is the best guide to train JRs. I am glad I found you on the web."
I had everyone AND their brother telling me to give him up, giving me names of trainers, giving ‘How To… books. NOTHINGworked. I kept saying there has to be a way, I can tell you I wanted to take ‘Caesar’ and whisper something up his nose. LOL.
We were thrown out of puppy class. I kid you not. I had a trainer come to the house, all general instructions,nothing specific to the Jack. I was sure he did not fall into the general taining format. So I persisted and by touching on some of the things you mention (not knowing I was on the righttrack) and with lots of tolerance and persistence we got through the terrible 2′s. But still ‘issues’. He went through 3 couches!! I have pictures to prove it.
Let me start at the beginning. When I went to the airport to pick him up (his name is Spencer) I could hear screaming all the way across the airport tarmac. He was in fact SCREAMING. Not barking or howling or yipping, but this high-pitched scream. This proved to be his signature for anything and everything he feared or wanted to go after. When I got outside the terminal I opened the cage to let him pee and stretch his little legs. He was running around on the end of his leash screaming and very frantic. I felt so sorry for him. He had literally exploded into my life. He was also exhausted from the trip. He cuddled on my lap as we drove home.
We tried puppy school. As I said we were ‘asked to leave’ he would not stop screaming, No one could hear the instructor and when they tried to show me how to stop him, they failed. Everyone I know kept telling me to crate him or worse, get rid of him. I did try the crate but he would not go into the same room as the crate and if I put him in the room and prevented him from leaving he would not go anywhere near the side of the room where cage sat. Nothing would convince him to go near it, nothing would entice him even close to it. After months ofhaving this thing sit empty and his stressing over it, I gave it away.
He did not take more than a few days to house break. He is very smart and very very funny. Not to mention he is so damn cute. He gives me much joy. But he still has the screaming issue. I think I read every training book out there, like you, nothing touched what I was dealing with… then I read your opening words on the web link I had followed. I stumbled onto your site by accident through a link from another page (can’t remember which one) before I had finished reading that first page I knew I had found the source that was going to… Read more…
