    What are the prices for the Jack Russells and Hunt Terriers? Does it vary?  
    Puppies are priced according to their bloodlines and outstanding breeding quality. Pricing often depends on the
    parents, the quality of the pup and the way it conforms to the breed standard, conformation, coloring, or the coats.
    My prices do not depend on what the buyer plans to do with the pup (breed or spay/neuter), but rather the quality
    of the pup.

    e. How will your pup be able to live in your new home?  For example, do you plan for your pup to live inside or

NuVet SUPPLEMENTS

    NuVet Supplements As important as a healthy diet is, we firmly believe

    be enough.

    It takes time for puppies to fully develop a strong immune system.
    NuVet Plus helps bridge the gap.

MALE~verses~ FEMALE
    Information below written and provided by: http://spencersmountainaussies.weebly.com/

    Choosing your pup......Male versus Female   
    Most puppy buyers have a personal preference when making the choice between male verses a female puppy!
    Many behavioral characteristics are more common in males while other characteristics are more common in
    the females. Evaluating the characteristics may be helpful in determining which sex best suits your lifestyle.
    1)  If you notice this in special the puppies, person and tolerate others.
    2) Independent: Females prefer to be in control. They may come to their owner but may leave when they have
    had enough attention.
    3) Stubborn:  A female is typically the ALPHA of their pack. They desire to control most situations and may
    respond to perceived challenges.
    4) Territorial: Like males, a female (in tact or spayed) may mark their territory.
    5) Protective: Females are more protective of their home or (from their canine perspective) their den.
    6) Behavior and mood changes: Females start cycling around 6 months of age, and twice yearly thereafter.
    Their hormones increase during their heat cycle and their behavior or moods may be altered. They pass a
    bloody discharge and odor that attracts intact males.


    The following characteristics often apply to males:
    Keep in mind, these are generalizations and there are exceptions.

    1) Affectionate: Male dogs are typically more affectionate than females. They tend to crave more attention from
    their owners (more than the females do) and share more affectionate behaviors with their family members.
    2) Attentive: Males tend to be more focused on their human companions, while the females tend to be a bit more
    independent. They are eager to please and prefer to remain close to their special person.
    3) Food Motivated: Males tend to be more food motivated which makes training easier. When they exhibit
    appropriate behaviors, it is important to reward them with treats.
    4) Exuberant: Male dogs maintain a fun loving and puppy like exuberance throughout their life. They love to run,
    play, and fetch.
    5) Aggressive behaviors: Intact males may display aggressive behaviors toward other males and exhibit marking
    behaviors. It is a known fact that the neutered males are more loyal, make better pets and are easier to obedience
    train.
    6) Protective: Males are more protective of their yard or (from their canine perspective) their territory. Most of
    them like to patrol their yards and mark the diameter with their scent. If another dog marks something they
    perceive as theirs, they will mark over it.


    If you have any questions in reference to the information above;
    Please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to answer your questions and provide you with
    additional information. If you already have a dog and are considering adding a new dog  or puppy
    to your pack:

    1) If you already have a male or female, a dog of the opposite sex is generally the best choice. Dogs of the
    same sex are more likely to challenge each other, than dogs of the opposite sex.
    2) If you already have a male dog, he will likely be more accepting of a female, and you will have fewer
    dominance issues if you add a female to your pack. However if you decide to add another male to your pack,
    they can peacefully co-exist with your guidance. It is important to closely monitor their interactions from the
    very beginning. Never allow aggressive behavior from either dog. For long term peace of mind, it's highly
    recommended to  neuter both males.
    3) If you already have a female dog, she will likely be more accepting of a male. Most males tend to be more
    submissive. If he does not challenge your female, most likely she will not instigate a fight with him. Adding
    another female to your pack may be more challenging (depending on their personalities) The toughest
    combination is two females because they are more likely to fight than a male and a female or two males.


    Many breeders and knowledgeable dog people own many females that coexist together with out conflict,
    because we maintain the alpha position and watch for the slightest signs of discontent. Our females have
    established and accepted their pack hierarchy and we reinforce it. Whether you choose a male or a female,
    is your personal preference. The characteristics listed above are generalizations, do not apply to every dog.
    There are many variables that modify behavior. Depending on the birth order, many male puppies display
    female characteristics and many female puppies display male characteristics.

    Please Take Note:
    Spayed females and neutered males are less likely to exhibit the (gender specific) behavior issues
    and disrupt your canine pack. Spaying and neutering also eliminates territorial marking.
 
 
 
 
 
 
IS YOUR HOME READY FOR YOUR PUPPY

    How old are the pups when you let them go to their new home?  
    Most Jack Russells are released after eight weeks.  Some I keep longer. This depends on the situation it is going to
    be placed in. Sometimes the prospective owner may be spending some time traveling or be "out of pocket" and not
    ready to accommodate a new pup in their home and I don't mind keeping the baby until his/her new owner is ready.  
    I also like to make sure the pups have had at least two vaccinations before traveling to their new home.  

    Are your dogs good with children?  
    All of my pups are socialized with my granddaughters which play inside the house and outside the house with them,
    dress them, wrap them up like babies, cuddle them, etc.  Many of my pups go to homes with children, so far the most
    part, all of my pups have been good with children.  I do begin watching my pups as soon as their personalities start
    to develop and the pups that come out of the crate first are usually the more outgoing. This is not ALWAYS the case,
    but many times will follow this pattern. Carefully continuing to watch the pup will help determine how aggressive a
    pup will be. You can also watch behavior with siblings. More dominant pups will control their siblings. Usually the
    pups that are the last to come out of the crate are more shy and will not be as aggressive. I usually spend more time
    with these pups to make sure they get the proper socialization and they end up being super sweet, loving pups.

    In rare cases, some pups do more become more aggressive over time. This is usually due to their environment and
    can be corrected in most cases with recognition of the problem and steps taken to correct it.  

    Also, what is your adoption process for the Jack Russell Pups?   
    I really like to talk to the person on the phone adopting the puppy. I want to make sure that the persons adopting a
    pup are ready for a jack russell terrier - not everyone is. They are not for everyone. If they want a dog that
    constantly wants to be a part of their life and they have time to spend with a dog then jack russells are a great reward.
 
    Facilities
    The home for my adult jack russell terriers was built March-May of 2005 It boasts 10 outside runs, the smallest
    being 11 x 90 feet and the largest 30 x 93 feet. All 10 outside runs have access to their own inside area where they
    can go to stay cool/warm depending on the time of the year.  In the summer, my dogs have fans full time blowing on
    them and in the winter there are heaters and a wood burning stove to keep them warm....... Inside you will also find
    cabinets to store doggie items in, a wash basin (perish the thought!), and a hot water heater to make the water more
    suitable.... oh, the life we must lead...........
 
    How to care for your new jack russell pup............
    People have different circumstances that enable them to take care of their new jack russell puppy in different ways.  
    However, there are some standard practices that should be utilized when bringing a new puppy into your home.

    1.  Make sure your home is "puppy proof".  Just like babies, jack russell pups will get into just about anything.  
    Things that can be chewed easily, wires, things that can be easily swallowed are just some examples of things that
    need to be removed before your new jack russell puppy comes into your home.

    2.  Purchase a crate.  If your pup does not already have his own crate, it is a good idea to purchase one. It needs to
    be enough that he can fit into it comfortably but not large enough that he can soil one end and sit on the other.  
    IF he learns that he has to sit in his own soil, he will learn more easily to hold it until he can go outside.

    3.  Purchase good food.  I feed Nutri Source.  It is not a really expensive food and they do very well on it. I am
    sorry, but Old Roy just doesn't cut it for me.  It needs to be a quality food made by a quality pet food distributor.  

    4.  Purchase a harness for your jack russell puppy.  Harnesses are much easier to use in training your pup to lead
    and they are not so easy to get out of .  Buy one that will fit your pup.  You can get one that can be adjusted way
    down to fit your pup, but if needed go to a smaller size.  Your pup is worth the price of a good harness.

    5.  Be consistent.  When you are potty training your jack russell puppy, be consistent in his training.  Don't take him
    out one time and then the next time it is too cold or too rainy so "I will just let him go inside this one time and take
    him out next time".  You must be consistent and your pup will learn to potty by what touches the bottom of his feet.  
    If it is carpet, then it will be carpet.....

    6.  Spend lots of time with your new jack russell puppy.  Nothing makes a better dog than human companionship
    and nothing is more rewarding that a jack russell that loves you will all his heart.

    7.  Consult others when you have problems.  I will answer any questions that I can and if I don't know the answer,
    I will ask someone that I think does know.  You can always learn more about your jack russell puppy. It is an
    ongoing process throughout your life and his.

    8.  Take good care of your new pup.  When he needs shots/deworming, do it.  Keep your jack russell puppy on
    heart worm preventative. It is some trouble but MUCH less expensive and less heartbreaking than your jack russell
    puppy carrying heart worms and having to be treated to get rid of them.  It does not hurt for your pup to be checked
    once a year for health's sake. Just like you, a checkup might prevent future problems.

    9.  LOVE your jack russell puppy.  This is your new companion for many years and the love and devotion you give
    your new jack russell puppy will be paid back many times over in the love you will receive in turn.  It is true....
    once your go jack, you won't go back!!!!

    10.  Teach others about your new jack russell puppy.  When you have company, let them enjoy your pup as you do,
    but do let them know what is acceptable behavior for your jack russell pup and what is acceptable behavior for
    them with your new puppy.  Nothing is more frustrating that for you to work so hard with your pup only to have
    someone else do damage to the relationship/training you have built with your new jack russell pup. I hope you find
    this information valuable and please let me know there are other things I should add to this list.  
 
    Shorties are known to live up to 15 -20 yrs Please make sure that your family has the time to devote to a puppies
    needs and are ready for the lifetime commitment to provide a loving and stable home.
