Jack Russell peeing in house
by: Daniel

If this is a new behavior or somewhat new behavior I would take your jack into the vet to make sure she doesn't have a urinary tract infection. Buy a good enzyme based cleaner from your vet/local pet shop and make sure you are truly cleaning the area where she peed because dogs have a very keen sense of smell.
Your Jack may be marking her territory by peeing on or near the sofa. Spaying often helps with marking. I would work on basic commands to establish yourself as the pack leader. I would avoid punishment, that only makes things worse. Reward her for good behavior when she is by you when you are on the sofa and she is not peeing. You may also want to contain her to certain rooms and keep her out of the room that has the sofa.
