Ernie

Jack Russell Terrier
Male

I came to my mum very unexpectedly. She had been looking for a new puppy for some time, and had even had a Labrador puppy lined up. Then me and my brother desperately needed a home, and after meeting my brother from a previous litter a year earlier and falling in love, my mum ended up with me:). I was very nervous at first, and just didnt trust anyone. My mum started training me basic obedience and tricks but when she tried to teach me paw she just couldnt. Thats when she discovered clicker training, and we havent looked back since... This dog is such an amazing little dog. He came with a lot of problems, he was scared of everything and everyone, had no recall around other dogs and had no trust in me at all. Thats when I discovered clicker training, and together me and Ernie discovered the world of positive dog training. We got addicted to tricks, and now Ernie knows absolutely tonnes of tricks and is always amazing me with what he can do. Tricks taught Ernie everything. Tricks taught him everything he needed to know obedience-wise and now his obedience is the best out of all our dogs. Tricks taught Ernie to have body awareness which helps him with agility and flyball. They taught him to be confident and to trust me. The more tricks he learnt, the more confident he became in everything he did. He loves performing tricks, and so tricks taught him that I was way more fun than any of them other dogs. As a side-effect Ernie is amazingly fast at flyball and agility, has fantastic body awareness and is very flexible and strong. When I first got him I had so many people tell me how to train him and that he would never be able to do anything more advanced than give his paws. I never ever gave up on him, I came close to it when things got too difficult, but I am so glad I didnt. He used to be so nervous of people holding him and new places to be able to do flyball. Then I trained him to do agility using logs down the woods as jumps, and it really boosted his confidence. Then, one day at a flyball comp the leader asked me if I wanted to put him in starters. He had had absolutely no training, but I could run up with him along the side so I said yeah. Everyone else was laughing and telling me he'd never do it. To be honest, I never believed he'd do it either. He sure proved everyone wrong, and competed fantastically! We came 4th altogether, boy was I proud and boy did everyone else eat there words! Now he competes whenever he can, and sometimes does a bit of agility too. He proved everyone wrong, and showed that he really can do anything. He has taken me to so many places, shown me so much and taught me so much. He's the first dog thats my own that Ive competed in a dog sport competition with. He has taught me how to train dogs and taught me to never give up. It took me 2 years to get Ernie to the point where he could be let off-lead around other dogs and compete in flyball and agility. Before I got Ernie I wasnt a big fan of the JRT but fell in love with his brother from a previous litter. Now I dont think I will ever be without a JRT they sure have won over my heart. Ernie is my absolute perfect dog and I dont know what I would have done without him. He is my very best friend and comes for hours and hours of walks with me. He comes just about everywhere with me and is just such a cool little dog. He loves everything he does, and loves telling the world how much fun hes having. He loves working for me, and everything we do together is just for fun. I dont do flyball, agility or obedience for the results, just for the fun and so Ernie gets to do what he loves. He is my absolute superstar, my very best friend and the best dog in the entire world in my opinion. There will never be another dog quite like Ernie, he is a one in a million. I feel so lucky to have him in my life:) The dog with the craziest ears in the world, the dog that proved everyone wrong, my crazy, one in a million little Ernie:)
