Aggression

by Sarah

We have an 18 month female Jack Russell. She literally is the sweetest dog -- She is good around all the small children in our family, she plays well with all the dogs in our family which include small and big dogs, and she goes to doggy daycare once a week and is fine. However, when we take her to the dog park, she is really aggressive with other dogs, whether they are coming up to smell her or just want to play with her. She thankfully has never hurt another dog beside a scratch or two, but I still feel bad and want her to be able to play wherever we take her.

Agression
by: Sylvia

We to have an 18 month old Purebred Jack Russell who is the sweetest and cuddliest dog I have ever seen. He does not like other dogs, he used to not like people also and was ready to tear anyone apart that came to the door. He is very sociable now. They are very territorial dogs and just want to protect the people they love.
I would suggest using a muzzle for awhile as they hate it and will learn extremely fast. We only had to use it 3 times. It is an extremely good one. I don't even know if you can buy them in Canada. We tried one from a store in Canada it was a strap that went around their mouth and then around their neck. Got out of that in 3 seconds flat.
If you would like a pic of it let me know.
He also gets out of his kennell in the car. They are very powerful little dogs.
Check on the internet about the Jack Russell who saved five children from two pitbulls at a carnival in 2007.

Jacks are just like that they have there weird quirks when it comes to other dogs do not ask me why that is just a typical Jack for you.I have 2 Jacks both boys Elvis and Patchie and Elvis used to be so aggressive with other dogs and attack anything that was on a leash.And when we got our second one he has totally changed he is friendly around all dogs now maybe you need to consider getting another Jack!
