Why Does My JRT Urinate on the Couch or Chair?
by Liz Kinney
My JRT is 5 months old and his house training is going very, very well. I take him outside to the same area and say, "go potty" and he goes. I watch him very carefully all day and the accidents are now very few. He is crate trained at night and he is very much part of the family. I'm working on his biting or nipping and jumping up on people. He gets very excited to see guests. He has toys and we play with him, take him for walks and now is in obedience class. He has now urinated on the couch twice and once on my chair. The first time on the couch, my husband was scolding him for biting his hand and Jasper jumped on the couch next to me and stared at my husband and urinated. The next time we were playing with him and he jumped on the chair and urinated. Next time he was playing with my grandkids and jumped on the couch and urinated. What gives, why does he do that and how do I correct or break him of that. Right now he goes outside. I need help with Jasper.
