I have a 2 year old jack russel, she listens pretty well but she will not come when called. Today her collar broke while on a walk and it took myself and my mother an hour of chasing her to catch her. I am 5months preg and i doubt its real good for me to do this type of thing and get all stressed out. I dont know what to do with my dog. I had her in training classes but she figured out that when she was there she had to listen so she did everything she was told when she was in class but outside of class she would not listen. I told the trainer that and she laughed and told me i had a smart dog, well i already knew that jack's are known to be very smart but that is what makes them difficult. Does anyone have any advice on how to train her because the next step for me is to get a shock collar and try that but i am not sure it will work and they cost like $125.00 I am at the end of my rope! HELP!

Jack Russells have enourmous amounts of energy that need to be used and focused. If you don't keep her occupied they get bored and very stubborn. 3 or 4 walks a day aren't enough to keep them busy. They need challenges. Get a book specifically on the training and care of Jack Russells.
