Obedience Training

Hi. I recently got a 1 - 2yr old JRT and have read many of the posts on this board about getting them obedience training. However I was told by my vet as well as the local training center that JRT's can be very difficult (&costly) to train. Does anyone have any personal experience with a JRT who has had obedience training? Does it work? Oh, sorry 1 more thing, I heard if you get them trained as a pup, no problem, but as an adult (such as mine), that's where the difficulty is. I want to get him trained as he needs to learn to stop when I tell him to or he'll end up being run over by a car (he bolts out the door as soon as it's opened and into the street). We of course try hard to make sure he doesn't get out, but he is extremely fast and all it takes is 1 time and the worst case scenerio can come true. My daughter and I love our Jack but he needs trained, badly.

Your thoughts?
