Some Jacks do drink a fair amount of water. Has the amount of water your Jack is drinking changed? If he has always been a big drinker I wouldn't worry about it but if things have changed then I would definitely take your dog to the vet.

Many people think Jacks don't shed but they do! I use a combination of the furminator (got it on Amazon) and a variety of brushes/combs. And shaving him in the summer helps. Some people think diet has something to do with it. You can try a better grade of dog food to see if that makes a helps.
