Feeling really happy now. It is so upsetting to read some of the things about being 'top dog' that it takes the joy out of having a canine companion. I feel really blessed to have found Molly and I will just enjoy her boundless affection from now on. She is so obedient without really having to try and everyone I've introduced her to thinks she's a great dog. Thanks guys for responding with your positive comments and great links. I knew I'd made a good decision to join the forum. Any problems or queries I may have in the future, I know where to come. Bless you all

I love JRT's! I have a mix myself, and up until a few weeks ago our family had another one as well. They are incredible dogs, they come packed with personality!

Good luck with Molly, and welcome to the forum!
You two sound like a perfect match!

I love JTRs too and miss mine terribly. They are incredibly sweet dogs and don't respond well to punishment or dominance theory treatment.

Thanks for adopting Molly and I hope you enjoy many years with her.

She sounds like a wonderful little dog! You're doing the right thing by treating her with love. It sounds like she's very respectful and loving, and totally unconcerned with status. There are dogs who are status seeking but they're far more rare than many trainers would have you believe.

Enjoy your dog. Reward and reinforce behaviour you like, and avoid rewarding and reinforcing behaviour you don't want. If you need help, just ask. No one here will tell you to bully or intimidate your dog. No one will frame the dialogue in terms of "human vs. dog: who will win the power." It's just so unnecessary.
