The Jack Russel Terrier Club of South Africa

About Our Club

The Jack Russell Terrier Club of South Africa is run by a National Committee, elected at each Annual General Meeting. The country is split into Regions, each having a Regional Representative. The certificates pertaining to the terriers are issued and controlled by the Breed Records Officer. Breeder’s Licenses are also issued by this officer.

The club has trained judges who judge the conformation (showing) sections of our Trials (or Meets as we call them). These judges also inspect the terriers for registration purposes. At our Meets we also conduct earth trials, obedience and agility challenges. Frequently the regions hold “fun days” which take many forms, including educational/training events.

Our trained Working Inspectors get invited by the regions to lead working events for the members and their terriers, and it is they who grant Working and Gameness Certificates to qualifying terriers.
