The Parson Russell Terrier Club was formed in 1983 and is the parent club in the UK for the Parson Russell Terrier.
The PRT is very popular both as a pet, showdog, working dog as well as excelling in a number of other canine activities. The PRT is an active, playful and sturdy breed,
Full of character he is always ready to enjoy whatever the day has to offer. He is a handy, go anywhere, size and generally stays fit and well into old age.
Work opportunities are limited these days for this traditionally working terrier but their energy and independence has adapted well to many other activities.
They will romp happily with children, can excel at mini agility, enjoy socialising as a PAT Dog and even become a TV Star.
A popular breed for the show ring amongst exhibitors the PRT can be a particularly good choice for a junior handler and the club is keen to encourage it's younger members..
