Rumble / Dogs & PuppiesThis is Alex, a 9-month-old Jack Russell Terrier and is one of the most diligent dogs you have seen. Standing on the bed, wiggling his perky tail ready to play, he sharpens his ears and prepare himself for the next round of orders. And the order goes as it follows: “Alex sit down, squirrel, good boy, bang! And Alex the sweet boy does exactly what he is told just to get that delicious doggy biscuit.

No sooner he is acting dead on the bed, we hear another cycle of commands, this time the other way round: “Alex stand up, bang, bang, good boy” and there we see the well-behaved and polite Alex getting another doggy biscuit. They must be so tasty since he listens and follows orders so carefully. With his small, sturdy and natural looking appearance, he only draws us to him and makes us watch the video again and again. This happy-go-lucky dog is very friendly and easy to train as long as the object of his training is a mouth-watering cracker.

Alex has high energy levels like no other dog and if any dog can top the strong prey drive, determination and intensity of a Jack Russell Terrier – well, that could only be another Jack Russell. He is bright, clever and athletic breed and is the king of what is going on in his environment. Nothing gets by him. A solitary or sedate lifestyle is not suited to a Jack Russell Terrier. He requires full participation in the family and vigorous daily play sessions, especially ball chasing, which he tends to be passionate about – even obsessive. Too little exercise, too little companionship, and too little mental stimulation will quickly lead to boredom, which will in turn lead to destructive behaviors.
