History of the YJRTN
The Yankee Jack Russell Terrier
Network was founded as an affiliate of the Jack Russell Terrier Club of
America in 1997 to serve the New England area.
Goals of the YJRTN
The goal of the club is to
provide a more localized support function to the New England Jack
Russell Terrier breeders and owners. This goal is carried out through
the Yankee Trials, the many Fun Days that are held by Yankee members
throughout New England and by providing information and education to our
members through our newsletter, The Terrier Connection.
Where the YJRTN is Today
Many years later, our club is
stronger and more active than ever! Our membership has grown and so has
the interest of the many JRT owners in the area.
Each year in May we hold two
trials, the Yankee I & II Terrier Trials. The 2013 Trial will be
held on Saturday, May 18, and Sunday, May, 19. The trial is held at the
Hebron Fairgrounds in Hebron, CT. It is a great opportunity to meet many
of our Yankee members. Each trial is a huge success and a whole lot of
fun as our members can attest!
We have many exciting events
in the works! There are several Fun Days that have been scheduled and we
are already looking for more ways to assist and encourage more members
to host new Fun Days. It is our members that make us who we are and we
recognize that their success is our success!
