Looking to Have Some Fun
with Your Jack Russell Terrier?


The purpose of the JRTCA is to protect and preserve the unique characteristics and working heritage of this great little terrier.

If you’re like most JRT owners we encounter, you fell in love with a cute, spunky puppy.  Now you have developed questions about behavior– just how do you wear out this little ball of energy?!   Maybe you’re looking for a way to entertain and promote responsibility in your child too.

Well, we can help.   The Sunshine State Jack Russell Terrier Club is proud to be the only Florida club affiliated with the national Jack Russell Terrier Club of America (JRTCA).   The SSJRTC actively promotes the breed through education, training, competition and Russell Rescue Inc..  Our Youth division consistently outperforms many state clubs at the annual National trial.

Visitors to our events are always welcome because we know once you attend, you’ll become hooked like the rest of us!   The SSJRTC has nearly 150 members throughout the state, U.S. and Canada!   Everyone who wants to, becomes part of our extended ‘dog family’ and this is one family you’ll enjoy socializing with!

  Next Event:   December 2-3, 2023
