It is considered that Jacks are aggressive by nature, especially the individual male, they love to fight with other dogs. It is not truth. Firstly, the breed was bred to work in a pack with other dogs where aggression is unacceptable. Secondly, imagine the situation: you are traveling in a bus, which includes many strangers. You don’t fight just like that, without thinking, without apparent reason, because you want to fight don’t you? Of course you don’t, because you don’t know your enemy, he might be stronger than you, and you will be defeated.
The same rule applies to the canine world. See how the dog meets strangers on the street. They never rush into the fray without analysis (of course, there are rare exceptions among the fighting breeds). They portray a kind of "dog dance", consisting of sniffing, dance, lift legs and mark (spray) the territory. In this case the dog may issue a variety of sounds, lift up the hair on the nape, grin. Thus they determine the outcome of the meeting, there will be a conflict or peaceful situation. If a dog puts his head on the neck or the shoulders of others, it is a signal of dominance. If the other dog lies on his back and demonstrates abdomen this means that it takes the situation. Dogs will diverge as a result of such a ritual dating, if you don’t disturb them. In any case, do not pull on the leash of your Jack during dating since your intervention may distort the meaning of the information that Jack wants to convey to the other dogs and provoke a fight.
Always remember that, despite the small size, Jack is a brave dog who is not used to hide behind the master. However, he won’t throw in a fight at breakneck speed on their
Generally keep your hands away from the toothy fighting jaws. Do not cry and do not kick dogs. It is best to separate the fighters together by the tails (by the hind legs). Do not pull hard, just a little lift for Jack’s tail so that he tore his hind legs off the ground. He stops the fight deprived of support. If you are one and you see that someone else's dog wins, do the same with it to tear it away from Jack.
To avoid unpleasant or even dangerous situations with an adult Jack, follow some simple rules from childhood.
- Teach your puppy to walk on a leash.
- Take a little Jack on the dog playground, where he will be able to communicate with other dogs.
- Before Jack meets another dog, ask the permission of the owner.
- Do not interrupt the process of dating with another dog, Jack himself understands it perfectly.
- Do not take Jack in the arms in appearance of unfamiliar dog.
- If, however, there was a nuisance, and your pet got into a fight, do not try to pull him by the collar.
