I found this book to be very helpful. I read the whole book and sometimes refer to it when I have a question or someone else has a question. She portrays the JRT very well and this is definitely the book for people who are thinking of getting a JRT. It outlines what to expect from this breed of dog and tells you how to handle some situations that arise. I'm glad I had this book when my female came into heat and had her first litter. It was a guide for me as I did not know what to expect. Very well written.

I enjoy Dr. Coiles' books. She is practical, experienced and has an obvious love for canines. This is a good beginners book for JRT owners...it is a shame that a lot of people get one of these guys before they read about them first...she helps a great deal. Again, well worth the time and investment.

This really is an owners manual in a small package for a small price. I like it so much that I give one to all new owners when I sell a puppy! That way I know the pup will start out right in its' new home and they'll have the best advice on living with a JRT.

Format: Paperback
My family recently got a Jack Russell Terrier as a pet. Having owned other dogs before, we were in for a suprise when it came to training and behavior. Jack Russell's are very high energy dogs that require either a lot of room to run or people to play with them. This book was very helpful in detailing certain behaviors that my puppy exhibited and how to deal with them. The book goes into details of the breed, explaining the history and attitudes that are commonly displayed. Well worth the price, I have read it twice and it has helped the rearing of my puppy tremendously.

This book is good for someone considering getting a JRT. We've had our JRT for a year, I started reading this book and laughed out loud! This book describes the JRT traits and funny antics...their behaviours which are special to this breed and not for the faint at heart. A JRT is not for someone wanting a lapdog,(they love to play and need interaction with the family) though he is this at times, but more than that the JRT is a dog with energy and is a special and loving dog. Took my dog several months to potty train: to not do his business in the house, so there were lots of cleanups which can be frustrating but once he got it, He Got It and Never a problem again! This dog is for someone or a family who will put the time and effort into such a special dog. They love to play alot and and are affectionate dogs, you will love your JRT. Our family loves our JRT named Rocco, he has brought so much joy to our home and has brought us closer together, amazing how a dog can do this! He likes to "bark at the air" as the book says but he will hush when told to do so. JRTs are smart and we have trained him ourselves ane he is obedient. This dog will bring you lots of joy if your considering getting one, I recommend reading the book, it is informative.

Format: Paperback
I've been reading quite a bit about Jack Russells lately for my JRT hobby website (this is my 2nd review for Amazon) and I have to say that most of the books are pretty good and cover the same basic information. Things like how to choose a pup, how to puppy-proof your home, and the basics of healthcare.

Ms. Coile's book differs from the Pavia book (review 1)--What About Jack Russell Terriers: The Joys and Realities of Living with a JRT-- in that it goes into much more detail about 'conformation', or the standards of the ideal JRT according to the powers that be, and it's much more nicely put together. The paper is nice and the design is pleasing.

This book is also written with a gentle and intelligent humor, which goes far in my book.

UPDATE::: I've just finished Doc Coile's other JRT book -- The Jack Russell Terrier Handbook, (Barron's Pet Handbooks) -- and it is superior to this one. It goes into more detail about grooming, training, and personality problems. December 23rd, 2011.

I used this book for a project and it gave loads of great info on JRT's. I have one of these dogs and I love it. My dog really can relate to the things in this book. If you are thinking about getting a Jack Russell Terrier you should buy this book!

This is a very helpful book, well organized so it is very easy to find what you are looking for.

Like the book says, Jack Russells aren't for everyone. They are brilliant. That means they can think of much more trouble to get into. They will never bore you. But if you don't like excitement, get a cocker spaniel.
