  • To preserve, protect, and defend the Jack Russell Terrier from:
    • genetic and other defects or risks produced by inbreeding,
    • the indiscriminate registration by other organizations of dogs alleged to be Jack Russell Terriers, without protection of the breed by adequate genetic and medical screening and proof, and
    • other commercial or private practices that threaten the qualities, characteristics, and special abilities of the Jack Russell Terrier.
  • To educate the public to the qualities, characteristics, and special abilities of the Jack Russell Terrier.
  • To hold public meetings, gatherings, dog trials and shows to give the owners of authentic Jack Russell Terriers the opportunity to put their terriers in competition with one another in various activities and to have their terriers judged and assessed for conformation and adherence to the qualities, characteristics, and special abilities that distinguish the Jack Russell Terrier.
  • To establish qualifications for certain classes of judges, to sanction them according to their qualifications, and to maintain a registry of those judges, in collaboration with The Jack Russell Terrier Club of America.
  • To cooperate and collaborate with The Jack Russell Terrier Club of America in providing and maintaining a central registry for Jack Russell Terriers, as provided in its constitution
  • To provide to Jack Russell Terrier owners and prospective owners such other education or information as shall make them better owners of these unique dogs.
