three jack russells fighting over mommy

We have three jacks.Carmine the two year old seemed to get his nose a little out of joint 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 outside,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.If I have to go put laundry on I will tell him , Carmine stay. He starts to talk and get whiney and 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!
We love are Jacks, they are family and I would not trade them for a million dollars.I find the problem has also gotten worse since my husband went overseas.When I go out anywhere Carmine will not stop crying until I get home.Vinnie and Lola are great in there kennels but Carmine has destroyed so many I can't even count. any suggestions?
