Harnesses for Jack Russell Terriers
Not every Jack Russell terrier will need a harness, as some dogs walk perfectly well on a collar. However if your Jack Russell does pull on the lead then a harness maybe a good option. Pulling on the lead when wearing a collar can damage their throat so it is a good idea to try a harness if this is happening. You can even look for a Jack Russell non pull harness if the pulling on the lead is especially bad or if you are training them not to pull on the lead.

Collars for Jack Russell Terriers
Dog collars are not only useful for attaching leads to, but in many countries including the UK it is against the law to take your Jack Russell out in public without a ID tag. Although you can get special ID tags that fit to harnesses, traditionally you will want to attach the ID tag onto the collar.
There are hundreds upon hundreds of different collars on the market with various designs and materials. When choosing the best collar for your jack Russell it is important to take their comfort and safety in mind. A general rule of thumb is to allow room for a couple of fingers between the collar and the neck. In the below links you will find loads of info on which are the collar best suited for Jack Russells.
