This section provides an indispensable reference to many different stud dogs available in the JRTCA. The quality of terriers includes in this stud book clearly illustrates the continual improvement and progress that breeders have made since 1987. It is interesting to note the majority of the stud dogs listed in this directory are bred in the U.S., which is also indicative of the progress made by the U.S. breeders.

The JRTCA breed registry is one of the most unique registries in the world. It has been designed specifically to maintain the Jack Russell Terrier as a healthy working breed, free from genetic faults and characteristics that would be detrimental to the breed. Unlike other registries which register entire litters at birth, each application for registration in the JRTCA is judged on the individual terrier's own merits.
