Types of JRT Events

There are many types of events you can enjoy with your terrier. Whether you enjoy hunting, racing, go-to-ground, agility, conformation, or child and youth events, we look forward to seeing you!


Hunting

Your Jack is first and foremost a high-energy hunting dog. Jacks are born to go underground to bolt or hold quarry such as groundhog, opossum, red fox, grey fox, badger, and raccoon.


Go-to-ground

A simulated hunting activity, this event requires the dog to enter a scented tunnel, proceed to the other end where a rodent is held in a cage, and 'work' the quarry.


Agility

You and your dog work as a team to negotiate a predetermined course of obstacles including tunnels, jumps, A-frame, and a dog walk for time, without earning penalties.


Racing

Six dogs start in a box; the door opens and they all race down the track after a foxtail lure. Lightning fast, this is one of the more exciting trial events.


Conformation

Conformation is the staple of the JRT Trial; many breeders exhibit their dogs, and judges work to ensure the dogs maintain the classic look of the Jack Russell Terrier. Open to any JRT owner/handler, these classes allow the owner to show off their dog, and to learn some new handling skills at the same time!


Child and Youth

Child and Youth division(s) are a great way to introduce kids into the show ring and other events offered. Trials offer high point and reserves in both the Youth and Child division. No experience needed!
