Robbin's Rescued Russells - Airbourne Skyler

by Robbin
(June Lake, California, USA)

This is, "Airbourne Skyler" aka Skyler, a Jack Russell Terrier that I rescued from a high kill rate shelter. I compete with Sky in JRTCA sanctioned Terrier Trials and flyball tournaments. The name of my team is Rock n Rovers. Just a year and a half after I rescued him he won the Puissance class (high jump) at the prestigious Diggin West Challenge a JRTCA sanctioned Terrier Trial in Madera, California.

The Terrier Trials and flyball tournaments are a great way to bond with your Russell as well a release for all the energy these dogs have.

JRTCA trials and dogs
by: Marianne

Robbin, I had my first very exciting introduction to JRTCA trials this past summer. If I wasn't already totally in love with JRTs, this would have put me in heaven. My 15 y.o. JRT/Beagle mix passed on New Year's day. Since I knew he was ill, I started looking around for a pure breed JRT. I have had several family members tell me that a pure JRT is going to be too much for me, but I really want to get the exercise, enter him in the lure coursing events and generally enjoy my Jack. Did you get someone to help you prepare for trials? Did you find a trainer to teach you and your jack? I would be interested to hear your trial tales if you have the time. I am also a member of JRTCA and would appreciate your advice. Please feel free to email me at

Robbin - I've got to say what a joy it is to see photos like this. Here's a JRT that would very likely be dead without your intervention, and here he is reaching his full potential and enjoying his days. Well done and keep up the good work.
