Have her get the book " How to Raise a Puppy You can Live With " Rutherford and Neil. She should wait until the female is 2 yrs old ( at least ) .

Also, she needs to make sure that the dog has all proper health testing done to make sure she is breeding quality.

All that's in the book....plus why NOT to breed. I figure she has a year or so to read up.

Why would she want to breed her female? Is she planning on selling the pups? Has she done all the testing? It seems to me that if she has questions on how to breed or when to breed etc., she shouldn't be breeding. That is just my opinion which is based on how many dogs are looking for good homes right now I just think it's silly to add more to find homes for.

Have her read through this before breeding. It should answer her questions...

I am not from the UK I'm from right here in the U.S. where thousands of dogs are being put to sleep because of the overpopulation of dogs. When I see someone asking questions on how to breed etc. it just upsets me because obviously they don't have a clue and definitely shouldn't be contributing to the overpopulation...

The only thing a jack needs under the kennel club to be tested for is juvenile cataracts, some breeders also like to do hip tests while others don't as the condition is quite rare in the breed. Most breeders here will breed form the third heat onwards, small dogs like JRT are fully grown by the age of 1 year. Your friend needs to do a lot of research on breeding first, as they shouldn't even consider breeding if they don't know about heat cycles, then there are lots of other things to think about first, such as the cost and time involved and also the fact that you could loose the dog. So the first thing your friend needs to think about is, is her dog the standered has the dog proved that she is the standered by winning shows etc. Now there are also people who breeds JRT's as working dogs, In my opinion these dogs should still be tested for health and temperment, but dont need to be the perfect standered.

Also what type of JRT has she got, because things will be different with each type, also where does the person live as things are different here in the UK than in the states

A good book for her to get would be- The Whelping and Raising of Puppies a complete and practical guide.
by Muriel P. Lee
Another good book-
Canine Reproduction the Breeders Guide 2nd edition by Phyllis A. Holst, MS,DVM
