I have worked with rescue dogs since 1997 - with all dog breeds - my passion is Dogs and learning more and more about how their body language and how OUR own reaction to  their behaviour  is so important to 'get right'!  Diet is also important - a bad diet full of colorants could make your dog hyperactive or not enough fiber could lead to the need to the tendency to eat tissues, newspapers etc .  Socialising a pup from an early age is so important - not only with other dogs (after all vaccinations are upto date) but with different sounds. Giving them a rountine and boundaries and start how you mean to go on - when the pup is  small and cute   - IF you let them on the sofas - beds etc and then when they get bigger YOU decide that IT was not such a good idea - suddenly they ARE told NO - confusion sets in and thats when you wonder why they start showing teeth and signs of dominance - or - aggression.  Remember all dogs need a 'reward' to focus on during training - this could be food -  or a ball - or toy - something that your dog can be motivated by that will stimulate them to 'react' positively to training.

It is so important before you decide to get a puppy - to look into the breed that will suit your lifestyle and also that your lifestyle will include and be 'right' for your pup.  Your home environment - is it suitable for a large dog or more suitable for a small dog.  Your working hours - is someone home during the day - who will look after the dog when you go away - or when you are at work. The mental and physical stimulation the dog breed you choose will need.  Just because your dog is a jack russell or another small dog - they will still need lots of exercise - a whippet or greyhound though they need exercise - do like their home comforts and are often seen to be 'doggy couch potatoes'!!
Of course if you do decide to get a puppy - make sure you see the parents - and are able to visit the breeders - NEVER get a dog from a pet shop - often these pups come from backstreet breeders or puppy farms.

Remember Dogs are for life and you should be ready to commit for ten  years or more when you get a pup
