There are indications that Terrier racing has been around for at least a hundred years. However, finding a definitive history of Terrier racing is difficult, even in these days of online research. Rat Terriers and Jack Russell Terriers were bred as working dogs. Their primary job was to assist farmers in ridding themselves of vermin. Recognising that Terriers were bred with instincts to chase down prey, it takes no great amount of imagination to see several farmers bragging that their Terrier ‘is the fastest’. A bet is made, a course is set up in a nearby field and the world of Terrier Racing is born.
