Jack Russell marking in house NEW
by: Erica

First, if this is a new behavior for your Jack I would have him checked out by a vet. It could be a urinary track infection or some kind of illness that is causing him bladder issues.

If everything checks out fine, it could be issues with jealousy with the new baby. Maybe he is not getting the same amount of exercise or consistent walks as before.

You will need to by an enzymatic cleaner if you don't have one. You can get it in pet stores or on Amazon. A dog tends to pee again if they can smell any traces of where they went before and regular cleansers don't completely wipe the scent for dogs.

Also consider crating him at night and during the day restricting certain rooms that he can go into - like the babies room.

I would also consider hiring a pet behaviorist to help out before just giving away a beloved pet.
