Many dogs who are rescued and have Good Lucky Saint Jack Russell Terrier Dog Shamrock St Patrick Day Shirt from shelters will display very different behavior at the shelter. Then they do after about 2-3 weeks at home. A dog you bring home will seem totally fine for about 2 weeks and then “out of nowhere” start showing this kind of behavior. However, it seems like this dog has been showing it from the get-go. These are all things that contribute to this kind of behavior. I’ll be blunt and say that you’re also probably making the behavior worse by taking the dog out frequently, particularly to busy, overwhelming places.
Good Lucky Saint Jack Russell Terrier Dog Shamrock St Patrick Day Shirt, Tank Top, V-neck
A busy pet store for a consultation with a trainer is a very intense situation for a dog. And way too much for a dog, you’ve had only two weeks to handle. He’s essentially freaking out and melting down. The same thing probably caused the attack. The best thing you can do short term is to stop walking him when other dogs or people are around. Understand that every single time he engages in behavior he is practicing and getting better at that behavior. So if you’re walking him and he’s doing this a lot, he’s reinforcing those patterns and behaviors a lot.

There are things you can do to help him focus on you and ignore other dogs. But those are things that you’ll need to work on with him first somewhere neutral before you can expect him to be able to do them out and about. For now, you might stop walking him at all – just take him out for pee breaks. And if he seems to have the energy to burn (which is likely because he’s a Jack Russel) play with him at home. If he seems into it, he works on tricks and training, mental stimulation with toys, etc. Service dogs are so dedicated. This brings me so much joy to see him have a little fun of his own.
