JRTs shouldn't be loud. In a house that currently has a bc, whippets and a couple of cockers.. the JRTs are not the loudest! Nor the most frequent barkers.

A confident dog is not a loud dog, and JRTs should be confident.

Not barking at runners is good! I would keep treats on hand. Kat when she was young was a bit of a barker (at everything, hers is over stimulation/excitement while on leash. She wanted to visit everyone and everything) I just rewarded her frequently for focusing on me. So every time she barked I distracted her by asking her to sit, hand touch, etc and the rewarded her. I kept her attention on me so she couldn't get over stimulated.

Thanks!Today we managed to not bark at a dog,the first time they passed us I hadn't notice them because they were behind and Coco was barking.I said off but it was uneffected.Then as we passed them 20 seconds later I had her keep her focus on me as we passed,when she looked(and leaned forward to pull)I said "off" and she focused back on me,then I said "lets go" and we walked past,then I gave a her a bigger treat and said "good girl" proud,hopefully with practice this should be sorted.
Also have been watching lots of "It's me or the dog"
