The Jagdterrier is known to be one of the most versatile hunting terriers in North America. They are used to hunt everything from smaller game such as mice, rabbit, raccoon, to bigger game like bobcat, coyote, cougar, and even bear.
The German Jagdterrier (Pronounced "Yack-terrier") was developed over eighty years ago in Germany by crossing the original old English Fox Terrier and the Black and Tan Hunting Terrier. These crossings, with years of selective, intensive, breeding, have produced the modern German Jagdterrier, a dog bred and used exclusively for hunting.
The AHTA believes in preserving the Jagdterrier breed as a true versatile hunting terrier. We work hard to hold these dogs to the highest standards possible to ensure the highest quality of this hunting terrier breed.
