We have three jacks,carmine the two year old seemed to get his nose a little out of jount when Lola came to us.now if I leave the room for five minutes, he will pee on anyth ing. When I go to town and return, I let him out for a pee and he goes, But he will still come back in and pee in my house right in front of me. My husband works overseas so I have a lot of attention to give to all three.I will tell him , Carmine you stay I am going to put on laundry, he starts to talk and get winny, When I get back upstairs he has peed.It has also become a constant hump fest with the three of them, I know that is dominance,It is like there is this jealousy for my attention and I treat them all the same. They fight to sit next to me. Vinny is the oldest and closet to my husband, so when daddy goes away he gets very clingy to mommy , which in turn can cause some fighting. It was much different when we only had the Two.Lola the one year old is also very attached to me. help me please!Any suggestions would help!

Three Jacks fighting

It sounds like the third dog brought some anxiety into the pack about who is the alpha. That combined with your husband's schedule might be throwing them off. You need to figure out which one is alpha and then treat them accordingly. Also, lots and lots of exercise to wear them out!
