hunting

Will my Parson Russell Terrier ever stop hunting after

a hunting accident with a Common Genet/Small-spotted Genet and nearly dying?












(The Parson Russell Terrier is a breed of small white terrier that originates from the Fox Terriers of the 18th century. The breed is named after the person credited with the creation of this type of dog, the Reverend John "Jack" Russell. It is the recognised conformation show variety of the Jack Russell Terrier and was first recognised in 1990 in the United Kingdom as the Parson Jack Russell Terrier. In America, it was first recognised as the Jack Russell Terrier in 1997. The name was changed to its current form in 1999 in the UK and by 2008 all international kennel clubs recognised it under the new name.)

JRT needs to stop hunting
by: Anonymous

Hello,
I guess it depends on how much access you give your JRT to roam around freely. The JRT was bred as a hunting dog....and so it's in its DNA to hunt other animals. It may not change its behavior even after almost dying, as you had mentioned. However, if you keep your JRT indoors most of the time, then he will be forced to no longer hunt as he once did.
