Early Socialization of your Jack Russell Terrier Puppy

The three stages of Socialization:

1.Early Neurological Stimulation – as explained on the Bio-Sensor Method page has a limited window between the third and sixteenth day of life.

If you have any questions that we have not been able to answer on our website, please feel free to contact us at any time.

Not to be confused with the taller Parson Jack Russell Terrier (12" to 16" tall) our shorter legged terriers are known by many names such as Irish Jack Russell Terrier,Shorty Jack Russell, English Jack Russell Terrier, Short Legged Jack Russell, Shorty Jack, Irish Jack or English Jack and stand on average 10" to 11" tall.

2.Socialization – the second critical stage in canine socialization also has a limited window between the fourth and sixteenth week.  Socialization begins while the puppies are still living in our home.  They will be exposed to a variety of sights, sounds, toys, different environments and surfaces (as seen in the pictures below).  They will be introduced to and handled by other adults and children and they will have access to our other dogs.  By the time the puppies reach eight weeks of age, they will be ready for their new homes and for their new families to continue in this critical phase of early socialization.  Most importantly, you will want to make sure your new puppy is registered for Puppy Kindergarten between 10 and 12 weeks of age!
3.Enrichment – Unlike the first two stages of socialization, enrichment does not have a limited window.  This is the phase is also called lifelong socialization and refers to making sure your dog lives a happy, healthy and active life.  Dogs need exercise every day.  Exercise can be both physical and mental so if the weather is bad, teach your dog a new trick or hide treats or toys around the house and teach your dog to “search” for them.  If you have to take a ride to pick up the kids from school, bring your dog along!
