Potty training woes with a jack russell terrier

by John
(Brevard, NC)

Help, our 16-week old Jack Russell continues to potty in the house. Louis hates the crate, it terrifies him so that isn't working. I watch him diligently, but if Ihave 2 bedroom doors open, he will run in and either pee or poop or both, even if I've taken him out and he has done his business. I don't know how else to stop him from going in these rooms. Today I had the doors open while vacuuming and he did it again, even though he had just gone outside. I don't know what else to do. He gets lots of praise for going outside, but I never seem to catch him in time indoors. I know when he is sniffing around to go out and he has started going to the door on his own.


One bedroom is where our older dog sleeps and I wonder if he is trying to mark the territory. Don't know why he will go in the other bedroom.

A possible solution would be to use newspaper and put that down where the puppy is defecating,they generally return to the same spot in the home simple routine of taking the puppy out at regular intervals will help alleviate the problem,one of the most common times will be directly after the wake up

i hope this helps good luck
