Jack Russell Terriers

Several hundred years ago this cute little dog was bred to hunt foxes. They are smart, charming, and great to have around. But they do demand quite a bit of attention from their owners!

Because of their intelligence and natural desire to hunt, the Jack Russell Terrier requires an active lifestyle. They would certainly thrive in the country, or in houses close to parks and green areas in which they can run around and satisfy their curiosity. Training the Jack Russell Terrier isn’t an easy job. Potential owners must realise that it will take time and effort to get these great little dogs to behave properly. If you haven’t got the time, or have no desire to spend time on training your new dog, then perhaps you should look for a different breed.

Once the Russell Terrier is trained, however, you will find that you now have a wonderful companion. Their intelligence will amaze you at times, and their loyalty towards those who treat them well will make you feel proud of your pet.

Great dogs for those people with active lifestyles willing to spend plenty of time with their canine friends!

The Golden Retriever

One of my favourite dogs is the Golden Retriever. Its pale to dark golden coat, and its lovely face make this one of the better looking dog species. It is also an intelligent dog, and loyal to its owner. Keeping the coat in good condition will require the occasional maintenance, and it is a dog that does need regular exercise. In return, however, you will get a friendly, and entertaining, companion.

Unfortunately the species does suffer from several hereditary conditions such as Hip Dysplasia. This condition affects the hip socket, and can lead to arthritis of the joints.

The Golden Retriever remains one of the most popular dogs in the world. Because of its intelligence a Golden Retriever will be able to perform many roles. Beware that as a guard dog it is not very effective, the dog simply is too friendly for that.
