Get to know the Jagdterrier
All you need to know about the breed
Vivacious and lively, the Jagdterrier dog has a zest for life, and then some. This is a breed that’s known for their smarts as well as their bravery - a great combination when it comes to a working dog that doesn’t always know when to quit.
The Jagdterrier was bred in Germany as a hunter (their name literally translates from the German as “hunt terrier”) used to flush out smaller game underground. It was their grit and determination - typical to terriers - that made the Jagdterrier good at it, and kept the breed a favourite over the years.
That rough-and-ready manner is a welcome trait when it comes to their ability to roll with it, too. The Jagdterrier can adapt to living in a city apartment or in the country, just as long as they’re by their owner’s side. This is an exceedingly loyal dog who bonds closely to their people.
Sociable and reliable are words often used to describe the breed, as are the three “a’s”: Alert, athletic, and active - and maybe even a fourth, a super affable manner and a get-down-to-canine-business approach, with feistiness, above all, as the Jagdterrier‘s winning attribute.
