Today is a great day to think about getting a new pet. 

But what pet should you get? Here's an idea. Why don't you get a Jack Russell dog as your new pet?

Of course, taking in a dog isn't as easy as taking a stroll in the park. There are lots of obligations and responsibilities that come along with it. 

So, in this article, we decided to give you a quick guide on the things you need to consider before getting a Jack Russell. 


You Need A Lot Of Space

The breeding of the Jack Russell dates back to the time of fox hunting and ratting. Even as time went by, these dogs still retained their sense of fearlessness and high energy. 

With that, they are going to want to run and play around your house. So, before deciding to get one it would be a good idea to first know if you have enough space for your dog in your place. 

Jack Russells Have A Short Attention Span

Getting a Jack Russell is somewhat the same as having a child with attention deficit disorders. You're going to need to train your dog at a young age so that he'll be accustomed to proper behavior especially if you are fond of having visitors around the house.

Routine Is Important To Them

This isn't a bad thing. As a matter of fact, this might just go into your favor as long as you're willing to invest some time and energy on your dog. 

Everyone loves dogs. We haven't met a single person who has yet to refuse to pet a dog. However, one thing that holds some people back in getting a puppy of their own would be that these adorable creatures need lots of love and attention. 

We're not talking about feeding your dog or taking it to walks. This is about all the mess that you'll need to clean after from time to time. 

But then, that's where a Jack Russell's routine attitude comes in. 

Since these dogs are adept at routines, all you have to do is introduce your dog to proper behavior and the appropriate places to play around and poop. Before you know it, the dog would already be used to that kind of setup and the behavior would just be automatic. 

Preparing A Safe Place For Your Dog

We've already talked about how you need to make sure that you have enough space in your house if you really want to adopt or buy a Jack Russell. 

But the process isn't quite done yet. You also need to prep the dog's space a bit. 

You can't let your dog just go running off to wherever its nose leads it to. You need to divide the dog's space from other parts of your lot. 

Jack Russells are not only energetic, but they are also inquisitive. They are bound to spend a lot of their time exploring wherever they're in. 

Since you can't always watch your dog like a hawk. The best thing you can do is to determine their space is completely safe so they can have all the fun that they want. 

Well, that's basically it.

Have you decided to get a Jack Russell yet?

Whether the answer is a yes or a no, we have an offer that might interest you. 

Dogs aren't for everyone. Still, they are cute and adorable. So, why not settle for some dog block toys instead? 

They come in authentic colors and look just like the real thing except they don't need much looking after and they'll stay wherever part of the house you leave them.
