Deafness

Deafness shows up more often in white-coated animals, and therefore may be linked genetically to coat color. The dog may be totally deaf bilateral or deaf in only one ear unilateral . Unilateral deafness is more difficult to detect, as the dog quickly learns to compensate for her loss. A BAER brainstem auditory evoked response test is used to detect deafness it measures the brain's response to sound. It takes a very dedicated owner with very special abilities to provide for the protection and...

Building a Better Recall

Now, practice some more. Teach your dog that all good things in life hinge upon him first sitting in front of you in a behavior named come. When you think he really has got it, test him by asking him to come as you gradually add distractions and change locations. Expect setbacks as you make these changes and practice accordingly.

If you can commit time and attention to a devoted, quick, intelligent companion, then the Jack Russell Terrier may fit into your life. You may find you are the dog's pet.

Wildlife Encounters

The call of the wild is irresistible to Jack Russells. On any given day, while walking in the woods your Jack Russell may find himself face to face with some form of wildlife. A groundhog bite heals quickly and rarely infects, but an encounter with a raccoon is a more serious matter. Raccoons may carry rabies or coonhound paralysis, and they have been known to drown even large dogs if they are near a body of water. Raccoons who are seen during daylight hours are probably sick. They should be...

My dog has been house broken However he still has a number of accidents He lifts his leg and pees in certain areas Why

A dog has an instinctive trait of wanting to mark his territory. This is what instigates him to lift his leg and squirt urine in areas that he considers to be his territory. In order to prevent him from repeating this rather disgusting habit is to clean up the area he has messed up with an organic cleanser that leaves absolutely no remnants of smell. If even a little bit of smell remains, he is likely to be tempted to urinate there again. Do not use ammonia or bleach to clean the area, as they...

Feeding the Older Jack Russell

Jack Russells remain quite active well into their senior years. However, compared to the activity levels they maintained as youngsters, even these lively terriers tend to slow down and nap more as they age, perhaps gaining some weight in the process. When JRTs get to be more than 6 years old they may require fewer calories particularly if they are gaining some weight , although they still need all of the essential nutritional elements found in a well-balanced food. As the metabolism also slows...

Labor And Whelping

Be on the alert for signs of labor during the last week of pregnancy. While 63 days is the average, the bitch can whelp sooner or later. A day or so before she is due, the bitch's vulva will become enlarged. She will be uneasy and will spend a lot of time making a nest in the whelping box if she's taken a fancy to it . Keep an eye on her but let her alone. She'll probably drink more water than usual and urinate more frequently during the last few days of her pregnancy. If she is constipated, do...

Not an Apartment

Because the JRT is small and very cute, many have been brought into small city apartments and condos and left alone while people work all day. The restrictions of being left alone in a confined place all day has made for some surprised owners, who come home to find their apartment ransacked by the bored dog. If left to entertain themselves, JRTs can be very busy doing things humans don't like. That havoc is very entertaining to the dog, though. This is not a dog who can be crated for long hours...

How often will I need to brush my

You'll probably only need to brush your Lab about once a week. When he's shedding, however, you may want to temporarily increase your brushing sessions to several times a week or even once a day. Your Lab will appreciate it that shedding hair can get itchy and you'll undoubtedly appreciate the fact that the hair is going into the trash rather than on you, your furniture and your carpet and just about everywhere else you can think of . You don't really have to limit your brushing sessions,...

Chapter The Quintessential Chow Chow

The Chow Chow is a stockily built, muscular and medium-haired dog that belongs to the Non-Sporting group. You can recognize it by its large head that's complemented by a broad flat skull, short muzzle and wrinkles on his face. Often, these wrinkles end up forming a deep scowl. His ears are erect, rounded and small. His tail curls and high above his lower back and he carries it with pride over his back. However, his hallmark is his blue-black tongue, a rarity among all dogs. In fact, this is one...

Muzzles

Jack Russell Snapping Muzzle

Even the sweetest dog in the world may try to bite you out of instinct if you handle her when she is injured or in pain. Get a secure, comfortable muzzle and practice putting it on the dog for successively longer periods, up to a few minutes at a time. Try to make this fun, be gentle, and reward her for calmly accepting the restraint. If your dog is at least familiar with a muzzle ahead of time, she may be spared the added anxiety of having to cope with a strange new device when she has been...

The Show Coat

The coat of the Jack Russell is never sculpted it should not be altered in such a manner as to give it an artificial, overdone appearance. Grooming should not be done to try to cover any conformation faults. This is a natural earthdog and his look should reflect that attitude. If you are showing your JRT, the judge will be looking for the dog who best suits the standard of the working terrier and who he or she would most like to take out into the field that day. Exaggerated leg furnishings and...

How To Get Rid Of Fleas On Jack Russel

Fleas Dogs Ears

These pests are a long-standing annoyance to dogs and owners. Flea dirt digested dog blood can be seen as dark specks in the dog's coat.

Dogs are itchy and usually scratch or lick their paws when they're affected. You can see where your dog has licked her paws because of the brown saliva stains on them. Dogs can experience worse symptoms of atopic dermatitis, such as redness in the skin, hair loss, skin infections, and even ear infections. Although this allergy is common, it's...

Crate Training

Jack Russells love their crates and use them as dens. When the door is left open and there is a comfortable bed inside, the dog will seek the crate for privacy and rest. Either a wire crate or a molded plastic carrier is suitable, as long as it is large enough for a grown Jack Russell to stand up in and turn around comfortably. If the crate is too large the dog may choose to sleep at one end and eliminate at the other. The bed or pad inside should be one that is not easily torn. An added baby...

Erect Ears and Phalene Ears

Phalene Papillon Size

He origins of the Papillon French for butterfly go back centuries in Europe. Papillons were the darlings of royalty in France, Italy, Spain, and even Poland as early as the 1500s. Marie Antoinette was a Papillon owner, as were Madame Pompadour, Louis XIV, and numerous other notables. Dogs looking very similar to today's Papillons are in works of the old Masters, including Boucher, Fragonard, Watteau, Rubens, and other artists. Henry III was so infatuated with his dogs that he named the breed...

Poisons

In the garden are acorns, lily of the valley, wisteria, daffodils, morning glory, holly, rhubarb, and tomato vine, among others. t gt ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center The ASPCA...

Bathing

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...

Grooming Your Jack Russe Terrier

How much exercise does a Lab need

How much exercise a Lab needs depends on his age, his overall health and his temperament. As a rule, a healthy adult Lab needs about two hours of vigorous exercise every day. Examples of suitable exercise include running, jogging, retrieving and swimming. Lab puppies three months of age or less usually don't need any sort of structured exercise program they usually get plenty of exercise during their normal playtime. If your Lab puppy is four to six months of age, he'll probably play vigorously...

Supplements

One more consideration is supplements. Don't give them unless your veterinarian prescribes them for some special reason. All good-quality dog foods labeled as complete will provide all that your dog needs in the way of nutrition. There may be rare or special circumstances, such as pregnancy and lactation, when your dog requires some supplementation of one or more nutrients, if recommended by your veterinarian. But casual supplementation can cause serious imbalances and unexpected problems. More...

Anal Glands

Blocked Anus

Anal glands provide lubrication for the passing of stools and also function as scent glands. The sacs that produce these secretions are located on either side and slightly down from the anus. They normally empty when the dog defecates, but may have a tendency to fill or even become blocked in some dogs, and so should be checked from time to time. Regular tooth brushing is as important for your dog as it is for you. Regular tooth brushing is as important for your dog as it is for you. When a dog...

Grooming a Rough or Broken Coated JRT

Jack Russell Terrier With Bent Tail

Rough or broken-coated JRTs require a bit more work. Left to grow naturally, the coat may not look neat and tidy. Although grooming the roughs or brokens is more involved, you may derive more satisfaction from the finished product. Always keep in mind the Jack Russell is a double-coated breed He has an undercoat and an overcoat. The overcoat is made up of the coarser hairs that protect the dog from briars and brush in the field. Begin by thoroughly combing and brushing the dog to loosen dead...

Internal Parasites

When you first get your dog or puppy and take her for her first visit to your veterinarian, be sure to bring along the health records the breeder or previous owner gave to you. These records should reflect not only the vaccinations your dog has received, but also a schedule of dewormings. Also bring with you a fresh stool sample for analysis. The vet can quickly diagnose what, if any, types of worms your dog is harboring, so treatment can begin right away. Please do not think that...

What to Feed Your JRT

Jack Russell Teeth

Dry food, or primarily dry food, is recommended. Some warm water may be added to kibble to release more food odors. Canned foods are not always necessary but, if you feel you must add them, take care that they do not exceed 20 or Dog food labels are not always easy to read, but if you know what to look for they can tell you a lot about what your dog is eating. The label should have a statement saying the dog food meets or exceeds the American Association of Feed Control Officials AAFCO...

Neurobiology of Attachment and Separation Distress

MacLean 1985 has proposed that the neural substrates mediating separation distress, maternal care, and play belong to the same paleomammalian portion of the limbic system. According to his theory, these social behavior tendencies are all elaborated within the cingulate cortex and related neural structures. He has argued that the separation call or distress vocalization is the mammal's earliest and most basic vocalization pattern. More primitive forms of animal life e.g., reptiles lacking a...

Dachshund Cervical Vertebrae Images

Your Dachshund's spinal column is made up of small bones called vertebrae that surround and protect the spinal cord see Figure 17-1 . His spinal column consists of four primary sections the cervical spine, or neck area the thoracic spine, or chest area the lumbar spine, or lower-back area and the sacral spine, or pelvic area. The spinal cord is the information highway of the body, sending messages from the body to the brain about what's going on in the environment and from the brain back to the...

Accidents Happen

If you see your pup about to eliminate somewhere other than the designated area, interrupt her immediately. Say wait, wait, wait or clap your hands loudly to startle her into stopping. Carry the pup, if she's still small enough, or take her collar and lead her to the correct area. Once your dog is in the potty area, give her the command to eliminate. Use a friendly voice for the command, then wait patiently for her to produce. The pup may be tense because you've just startled her and may have...

Choking

Choking can be a life-threatening condition. Puppies, who are curious by nature, are always picking up all sorts of objects and are the most susceptible to choking on so many of the things that catch their eye. You may be able to reach into the dog's throat and dislodge the object, or you may have to perform the canine Heimlich maneuver. Lay the dog on her side and, with your palms just behind the last rib, give four quick thrusts. Check the mouth for the object and repeat the maneuver if...

Roundworms

If your puppy's dam has ever had roundworms and it is quite likely that she has , her pups probably will be born with roundworms. Some larvae encyst in the mother's tissue and, in the late stages of pregnancy, the dormant larvae are released and carried to the unborn puppies. They are also passed on through breast milk. This is why it is always advisable to deworm a female before she is bred although doing so will not rid her of the encysted larvae. For this reason, puppies must be dewormed by...

How to Trim Nails

How Cut Jack Russell Nails

Always keep your JRT's nails well tended. If you are diligent about trimming nails, you should have no trouble maintaining a well-rounded foot which your dog needs to move properly. Ideally, you will have the opportunity to manicure the nails from puppyhood, thereby establishing proper ground rules and conduct. Handle your puppy's feet often to get him used to being touched and held this way. When clipping nails, it is of the utmost importance that you work in the best light possible. You...

Extrasensory Perception

Do dogs possess a sixth sense Many authors writing to a popular audience, among them trainers, veterinarians, and behavioral consultants, have suggested that dogs may use information derived from sources other than the normal senses Fox, 1972, 1981 Wood-house, 1982 Vine, 1983 Campbell, 1986 . These beliefs have been reinforced in the public's mind by animal psychics claiming to communicate with dogs telepathically and to perform extraordinary feats, ranging from locating lost pets both dead and...

Tapeworms

Tapeworms Jack Russells

Perhaps the most familiar internal parasite for dog owners is the tapeworm. There are different kinds of tapeworms, but the most common is the one transmitted by fleas.

Leash and Collar

You will need a leash and a collar or collars that fit properly at all stages of growth. Rolled leather collars work very well and are comfortable. Be sure to adjust the collar so that it fits securely but not tightly, and check it regularly, particularly as your puppy grows. The collar should be snug enough that it will not slip over the dog's head, but loose enough to allow you to comfortably insert two or three fingers between the collar and the neck. A nylon leash is often best for puppies,...

Effects of Domestication

Wolf Postures

Although it is doubtful that early humans consciously deliberated upon the reproductive activities of their captive dogs, there certainly existed many unconscious selection pressures. Dogs of special interest or usefulness were probably more carefully managed, fed, and protected than others, thereby enhancing their chances of survival and reproduction. Darwin 1859 1962 reported striking evidence revealing the high regard and protection that dogs enjoyed in some tribal cultures. In support of...

Hookworms

The same medication used to treat roundworms is also very effective against hookworms. It is uncommon for a pup to be born with hookworms, but these parasites can be acquired through the mother's milk during the first two or three weeks of life. Left unchecked, an affected puppy can quickly die. Give a subsequent booster shot every three years, unless there are risk factors that make it necessary to vaccinate more or less often. Noncore vaccines should only be considered for those dogs who risk...

Loss of Appetite

If your dog refuses to eat for more than a day or two, or has diarrhea or a cough, call the veterinarian. These could be symptoms of a number of ailments. If the dog has diarrhea, remove all food but be sure fresh, clean water is available. Jack Russells are tough little dogs and recover quickly from almost any problem, but they do have a tendency to eat icky things, bringing on any number of consequences or, surprisingly, no consequences at all. My favorite true JRTs-eat-icky-things story...

Feeding Your Jack Russell Puppy

Puppy Jack Russells

Having started life on mother's milk, puppies are weaned between five and six weeks of age. The timing depends on the dam's willingness to nurse and the practices of the breeder. While the pups are still nursing, at about four weeks, the breeder will begin to feed them a fine-textured, well-moistened, nutritious gruel to begin to accustom them to solid food. At first the food is all over the place. It must be served in a low dish or pan so the pups can reach it, but then, of course, they can...

Dumbbell Size

Training Dog Dumbbell Jump

When teaching a dog to retrieve, it is important to use a dumbbell of correct size for the dog. The length of the bar should be about one inch more than the width between the dog's eyes for unobstructed vision. The bells should keep the bar far enough off the ground for the dog to grasp it behind his canine teeth without touching the ground with his nose. The bar should be large enough not to rock in his mouth and pinch his lips but not so large that he drools. Study the size of your dog's...

Sarcoptic Mange

This condition is caused by a microscopic arachnid called a mite. Jack Russells love to poke around in holes they discover, and if the last resident of that hole carried mange mites, the JRT may pick them up. Mange appears in many areas of the country and is especially hard on red foxes, which are often seen missing large patches of their red coat and proud brush tail . Mange frequently shows up first on the face, ears, belly, or thighs of the dog, and then spreads with itchy patches of missing...

Coat types Single versus double

Dogs basically have two types of coats i Most dogs have a double coat also referred to as a two-ply coat that has a top coat and an undercoat. The top coat is composed of stiffer guard hairs, which tend to be naturally water-repellant. Top coats protect the dog's skin and undercoat, acting as a natural guard against the elements. The undercoat is a fleecy or downy type of fur that's a bit shorter than the top coat. The undercoat serves as insulation to keep the dog warm during cold or...

Heartworms

Heartworms are very serious and difficult to treat, but can be prevented from infecting your dog. After a bite from an infected mosquito, larvae work their way into the dog and eventually develop into small adult worms. The worms then enter the bloodstream and travel to the heart, where they mature. The female gives birth to thousands of live young, called microfilaria, which move into the bloodstream and wait for their host the mosquito to come along to help them develop into larvae ready to...

Diencephalon Thalamus

Interaction Parasympathetic

The thalamus coordinates sensory and emotional inputs, serving as a gateway and relay between the body, limbic system, and cerebral cortex. Thalamic relay nuclei coordinate the projection of sensory information from the body and sensory organs, directing it to the appropriate somatosensory portions of the cerebral cortex the most recent and conscious addition to the brain. The amount of the cortex reserved for any particular body area or function depends on its overall use, sensitivity, and...

Luxating Patella

A luxating patella is a slipped kneecap. The kneecap patella tends to pop out of the joint because the groove in the thighbone femur in which it sits is too shallow. When the patella becomes dislocated, there may be pain and difficulty straightening the knee. The luxation may be permanent or it may be intermittent, with the kneecap popping in and out of position. The dog may move in a normal manner one minute and be lame the next. This condition can lead to the premature development of...
