Breeding Quality Jack Russell Terriers for Show, Export & Pets

JACKNTHEBOX KENNELS  was established in 1992 with the help of the well known Jocelyn Cansdell of Myrmidon Kennels a leader of quality Jrt's in Australia until her passing. 

Our foundation bitches gave us I wonderful start in the Pedigree Jack Russell Terriers.  Jocelyn was so passionate about this breed and her success grew in the Show Ring here and around the world & was made Honorary President of the Jack Russell Terrier Club in Japan. 

Jacknthebox has kept in with Myrmidon lines over the years sourcing Pedigrees going back to Myrmidon lines by Importing the types which fit to the Breed std that is current today. 

Jacknthebox has been dedicating many years (now 30+ yrs) to this wonderful breed. 


Jacknthebox has had great sucess itself in the Show Ring over the years.  BOB Sydney Royal. Best In Show Specialty Shows. RU Best In Show Specialty Show wins, Best in Group + RU Best In Group wins. And uncountable Class in show wins + BEST OF BREEDS.  For the past 2+ yrs since Covid in April 2020 we have not shown in Australia bit will continue in 2023.

 Our puppy owners for the Past 30 years have been more than satisfied with our past + present puppies and keep coming back for another and another !!! 


We have ventured "Jacknthebox" to NZ my Homeland this year and with GREAT thanks to good friends Gerard & Joanne Price in NZ.  Who will continue to help with my Imports.  As all my Imported Dogs will go thru NZ before coming to Australia due to the BAD Australian quarantine experience I had.  

In 2020 I sent over Pre covid in March  2 dogs for Gerard & Jo to show.  "Harley" & "Stella" (pictured) and due to covid hitting us all & not being able to show we decided to bred them for our first litter in NZ. 

Kept from this litter born in December 2020  is  Neville - "Jacknthebox Rumours Run Riot" starting his show career in April 2022 with very few outings due to covid.

I would like to Thank the Judges who actually saw his quality and awarded him so highly in just 5 mths of Showing.
