It is not necessary to bathe a Jack Russell Terrier unless he gets skunked, rolls in something completely objectionable, or has a serious flea problem. If a bath truly becomes necessary, be sure his ears are plugged with cotton balls and his eyes are protected from soap. Most dogs do not like baths, and the added stress of soapy eyes may make for more resistance to a bath the next time around.

The shampoo you choose should be made especially for dogs with a harsh coat. Anything that contains a conditioner will prove detrimental to the jacket. Terrier coats are, for the most part, very harsh, and they should stay that way.

Above all, be certain that all soapy residue is completely rinsed out and that the coat is thoroughly dried before the dog is allowed outdoors. If you are bathing an older animal, use a hair dryer to help dry the coat and keep the dog inside until he is completely dry, except for a brief time out to relieve himself.
