About Independent Jack Russell Terrier Breeders Assoc
'The Independent Jack Russell Terrier Breeders Assoc' is just that, an ‘Association’ of like minded Jack Russell Terrier Breeders who wish to maintain the purity of their beloved Terriers but not to the whims of the Show Ring.
Brendon & Diane Wilkinson developed the Breed Club in 1994, following the Acceptance by the ANKC, here in Australia, of the Jack Russell Terrier as a Show Dog - against the wishes of the Rev Jack Russell Esq. Who upon developing the Breed in the U/k many years ago forbid them EVER TO BE SHOWN - they were bred as a strain of working dog and he wished them to be just that for ever.
The Registration / Pedigree Paperwork of the Independent Club is not accepted into the ANKC, but there again neither are the Registration / Pedigree Paperwork of the JRTCofA
(The Foundation Club – here in Australia) either !!!!!
the ANKC is a CLOSED STUD BOOK.
Since the inception of our own breed club the Independent Assoc has grown from Strength to Strength, allowing any Pure Bred Registered Jack Russell from any organisation with a three (3) generation Pedigree to be accepted into the breeding program.
