Many of the members at SWJRTN participate in annual JRT trials as well as scheduled playdays. 

What are Playdays? 

Playdays are a lot like Trials… but the results are not official.  They're more casual and relaxed, but still provide great exercise, experience and FUN for both our JRTs and their people.  Racing, go to ground, meeting members, lure coursing… these are just a few of the great things you can do with your JRT at a SWJRTN Playday.  Playdays offer terriers and their owners a chance to get out and to learn about events offered at JRT trials as well as meet other JRT owners.  Please check the events calendar for future playdays and other great events offered to JRTs and their owners.

What are Trials?

Trials provide an opportunity for Jack Russell Terrier owners to get to know each other, get together with terrier friends and in general have a good time with their terriers. They also provide the necessary opportunity to see breeding stock from around the country. This interaction between fellow breeders, as well as between breeders and other Jack Russell enthusiasts, fosters continued improvement in the breeding of quality terriers.

The JRTCA sanctions trials throughout the US to ensure a fair and standardized competition and the safety of exhibitors and terriers. Terriers and their owners compete in Conformation, Go-to-Ground, Racing, Agility, Obedience, Youth Division and Trailing and Locating.

For information on trials across the nation, check out the JRTCA website.
