Night time

by andy
(wales,uk)

Hi, my JRT will always do his business at night time when we have gone to bed. I put him the utility room with the light on and his cage door open and with a drink available. He used to whine a lot but now he just accepts he will be alone for a while. I take him outside just before bedtime to have a wee and poo but every morning he leaves a mess on the floor. I also leave a pad by the door which he does use but not every time .


Should i lock him in his cage at night? and does he need the light on? Should he be expected to go about 7 hours without making a mess?
He is 9 weeks old.

Crate Training is the best!
by: Sarah

I definitely recommend crate-training. I have 2 JRT's, a male and female and they are both very succesfully house-broken. The male did take longer! I had the crate in our bedroom so that I could hear when they whimpered and then I would take them out. I always say "go potty" when outside and lots and lots of praise and treats when they do. Then back in the crate for bedtime. If they have too much room to roam it will take much longer and be more frustrating for both of you! I also hung a little bell on the back door and I rang the bell every time I took them out and now they ring the bell to go "potty"....I am my dogs servant because when they ring the bell I come running. :0)

Good luck!!

he's so young
by: Susane

Oh, bless him. He is so young to understand much yet. I have a puppy jack russell, we take her out every two hours during the day, and every three hours at night. Keep him warm and cosy, at night. Praise him with a treat when he is good. If you put the time in with him during his first six months, its a bind, I know to you, but very worthwhile for both of you.

Very young.
by: Anonymous

Oh my goodness he is very very young to have grasped anything that is expected from him, it will take time, and patience but it will all come together, he has only just left his mother, and everything is strange for him, I am sure other members that have had puppies will be along soon to give you some advice, otherwise I suggest you look here,www.jack-russell-terrier.co.uk there are lots of knowledgeable friendly helpful people on this forum, and there is always someone willing to help,

Ladyjack.
