Jack and Pip at 1 year old

Post by EC2 » Sat April 30th, 2011, 10:39 pm

I've just put up a 'birthday' video at my dog blog to detail the development of Jack and Pip my Patterjacks over the last year. http://jackandpip.blogspot.com/2011/04/one-today.html

Are they Jack Russel and Patterdale terrier crosses? If so, you must really have your hands full, lol! I love the spunky personalities of terriers. They're adorable!

They are wonderful LCW. Sure, they will go forever and ever. Their batteries never wind down, but we have them fully trained and under control. I think problems arise when people don't give their dogs enough stimulation and exercise.
Their intelligence is amazing, especially Jack. We can let them off the lead and know they'll come straight back to a whistle or a shout. They stand still to have their leads put on. They are good with other dogs and absolutely fine with children. They do protect their territory in that if anyone passes the house the barking is all hell let loose, and any visitors are very enthusiastically greeted - which not everyone wants. We're still working on that, but reckon part of it is very youthful fizz and will quieten off. We've mannaged to (mostly) stop them chasing cats. Jack has it down pat, but Pip is having a bit more trouble resisting - he's getting there.
It's interesting that we have had no trouble with alpha-male fights which people said we might have. Jack's dominant and Pip accepts it. They're probably towards the other way of being inter-dependent, but we've worked on that and they seem to be fairly balanced little individuals all told.

I had a Jack Russell (but sadly no more). At least we think she was a Jack Russell but she might have had some Dachsund in her as well.

She was insane and insanely jealous of other animals but she was absolutely the most loving animal I have ever come across. She adored people (especially male people!)

I envy you your adorable two but unfortunately circumstances (work) do not permit me to have another.

I agree completely! The active highly intelligent dogs are so fun. Giving them an outlet for their energy and ways to make their minds work is so important...but so rewarding!

Have you tried a flirt pole with your dogs? Its great for high energy and high prey drive breeds. Its also a useful training tool. I use it to work on impulse control with my male. I have a feeling Jack and Pip would love it!

No, what's a flirt pole? I'd be interested in knowing.

Edited to say I've just been to look. Yes, they'd love one of those. They already chase the mop and the washing line prop, and this is a great variation! Thanks. I'll make on :-)
