Conformation indicates what the animal appears to be.

Form, Function and Temperament
At the Jacks Wild we focus on the concept of the total dog, that is one that is equally comfortable in the field, show ring, sporting arena as well as in the home by the fire. We actively participate in a wide variety of sports and activities with our terriers such as agility, carting, earthdog/go to ground, flyball, packing, racing, tracking, weight pull, nosework, and dock jumping. Our dogs are enthusiastic competitors and in addition to collectively earning over 300 titles and awards since 2000, they have garnered the following national awards:
- 2004 National Award of Excellence, United Kennel Club - Kendrik
- 2005 Fastest Singles of Breed, United Flyball League Inernational - Penelope
- 2007 Versatile Dog of the Year, PRTAA - Emma
- 2009 & 2010 Top Dog in Breed, Splash Dogs Dock Jumping - Pookie
- 2011 Top Dog in Breed, Splash Dogs Dock Jumping - Smokey

We are active, working members of clubs such as the Parson Russell Terrier Association of America and our own RF Revolution Dogs Sports as well as breed rescue. We also offer positive dog training opportunities in carting, weight pull, earthdog/go to ground, packing, basic obedience and flyball in and around Reno, NV. Above all, we are always available to answer questions, provide referrals, and just talk terrier. We hope you will enjoy getting to know us, our dogs, and the breed a little better.
