Hi everyone. I am a new member and would appreciate some advice. I have a 4 year old Jack Russell,neutered male,whose previous owner had him as a puppy but failed to socialise him with other dogs. As a result, he is really hyper and barks like mad when we meet other dogs. He also gets very excited when he realises it is walk time and if someone rings the doorbell-very territorial! I wondered if he would be better with another dog for company,perhaps an older quieter breed. I retire from work in October but at the moment he is on his own most of the day(with access to garden). Carol.
