Only your Jack Russell knows why he does it. It could be for attention, lack or exercise, or for the pure jollies of it. My Jack Russell bowls over visitors and they have all learned to be on guard when entering our gate. With this in mind, I tend to think this would be the reason for your Jackies circles. He must learn to wait for his greeting from visitors and yourselves. Have a lead ready for when you expect someone to come over. Put him on the lead, and have him sit and stay until they have safely entered your home and then have him slowly walk and sit at the feet of your visitor. Then he can be allowed to greet people in a more relaxed fashion. Further more, if he is doing it for any other reason - just completely ignore him when he does it. All stand up and leave the room to leave him to his own devises. You could also try increasing his daily walk / exercise by 15 mins.
