Method 1 Exercising Your Jack Russell

    1

    Take your dog on longer, more frequent walks. Especially if your Jack Russell Terrier’s main form of exercise is a daily walk, it needs to be long and challenging. Your Jack Russell needs at least 30-45 minutes of vigorous exercise each day, so make sure that you’re walking your dog at least that much.[1] If you’re able, walking your dog twice a day or for an hour or longer is even better.

    Play games with your dog. Physically demanding games will satisfy that pent up energy. You can play fetch with a ball or frisbee, or play hide and seek with treats. These games will require fun and stimulating exercise for your Jack Russell.
    • Mentally demanding games, such as food puzzle toys, are also good at exhausting your Jack Russell’s energy.[2]

    Take your dog to play dates. Jack Russells would rather be outside running in the grass than trapped inside all day. Even more than this, they like exercise that involves interacting with other dogs. Take your Jack Russell to a dog park or over to a friend’s house who also has dogs and a fenced in yard. Doing this will give your dog the invigorating exercise and interaction that it needs.[3]

Method 2 Training Your Jack Russell

    1

    Assert yourself as the pack leader to eradicate excessive jumping and barking. Your dog probably thinks it’s the pack leader if it excitedly barks and jumps on you and guests when they walk into your home. By taking steps to become a calm and assertive pack leader, you can train your Jack Russell to not exert its energy in destructive ways. Some ways you can do this are:
    • Don’t give your dog affection right when you walk in the door.
    • Correct the behavior by firmly and clearly moving the dog to the side.
    • When guests arrive, get into the habit of commanding your dog to sit patiently as they enter.[4]

    Use clicker training. Buy a clicker at a pet store for as little as and use it to train your dog through positive reinforcement and association. If you make eye contact, click the clicker only when you want your Jack Russell to act calmly, and then reward this behavioral correction, your dog will quickly learn that calmness is rewarded.[5]

    3

    Ignore the behavior. Ignoring your Jack Russell when it’s jumping and barking excessively will communicate that misbehavior won’t get it anywhere. Your dog just wants attention, whether positive or negative. Ignoring your dog keeps it from seeking attention in this negative, hyperactive way.[6]

Method 3 Calming Your Jack Russell

    1

    Give your dog a job. Jack Russells specifically are happiest and most fulfilled when they have a job that they’re responsible for. Try to give your dog a job that fits the strengths of the breed. For instance, Jack Russells love to dig and hunt. If you give your dog the task of taking care of rodents in the yard and reward your dog when it does well with this job, then it probably won’t have as much hyper energy to exert.[7]
    • If you don’t have a yard for your Jack Russell to dig in, you can give it a cleaning job by commanding it to put away toys or give it a notification job by commanding it to bark when the mail truck or school bus drive by your home. Reward these actions with treats.[8]

    2

    Remain calm and collected. Your Jack Russell may react to or reflect the energy that you put off. Do your best to have a calm and assertive presence. If you’re stressed about your job or frustrated about an argument you had, your dog will pick up on and be impacted by that nervous energy.[9]

    3

    Try aromatherapy. Dogs sense the world first and foremost with their noses, so aromatherapy might have a powerful influence over your Jack Russell. Just like it has a calming effect on humans, lavender can relax dogs as well. Ask your veterinarian about other scents that may be specifically effective for calming your Jack Russell as well as safe application and dispersal methods.[10]
    • Sometimes essential oils are safe to apply directly to your dog’s skin, but you may want to consider purchasing a dog aromatherapy pre-mixed spray that’s already properly diluted and safe to spray throughout your home.[11]

  • At what age do Jack Russell terriers calm down?

    wikiHow Contributor

    To tell you the truth, they are always hyper and want to play all the time. Mine didn't calm down until age twelve, and she passed away two years later. In short, a hyper dog is a healthy dog, until they are quite old.

    Thanks!

  • My Jack Russel puppy bites me, what can I do?

    wikiHow Contributor

    Nipping is a common behavior in all puppies, and something that you need to put a quick end to, as it can lead to more biting as the puppy matures. Since Jack Russell Terriers are such high-energy dogs, take your puppy on a nice long walk before your training session to get all that hyper, unfocused energy out. Once your puppy is drained, play with some of their toys. If your puppy bites you, correct it firmly and immediately. The second they release their jaws, reward and praise them calmly. Using a clicker may make this process faster. Most importantly, don't give up and don't yield. Soon your puppy will catch on that they aren't allowed to bite.

    Thanks!

  • When can I start putting my Jack Russell puppy in a kennel at night?

    wikiHow Contributor

    You should put your puppy in a kennel as soon as possible, but let your puppy sniff around his kennel first. Dogs like living in their own little space, so your puppy should feel safe. You can also put blankets around the kennel to make it feel even safer.

    Thanks!

    Best option - get another Jack Russell! They'll play together all day and tire each other out, they'll be happier and calmer all around.
