Jackapoo training

by Nykie
(Cheshire, UK)


I've just brought home a 12 week old Jackapoo called Roxy and want to start training her asap. I wondered whether I am best following the training advice given for JRT's, Poodles or just the general puppy training techniques? I want to get it right, she's such an adorable little thing and deserves to have a happy homelife.

Many thanks in advance

Training mixed breeds
by: Tom

Hi Nykie,

This is a pretty common issue, which is why I dedicated a chapter in my ebook to Jack mix breeds. A good rule of thumb is to go by the way the dog looks. Studies have shown that a mix who looks more like a Jack than a Poodle will act more like a Jack than a Poodle. That said, you should have a good basic knowledge of both breeds so that you can understand which breed's traits she exhibits the most, and adjust accordingly.
