Parents got an 8 week old female Jack Russell yesterday. She does go outside in the garden; but doesn't seem to want to wee out there? Has anyone got any advice please. She'll poo outside with no problem. She just wees inside the house.

 

She also chews on everything, which I assume is normal? She has the naughty habit of licking my hands and then deciding to nibble them. Very sneaky.

 

She currently doesn't have a name. Any name suggestions would be appreciated. She's black and white. Will post a photo when I get a chance.

WAIT FOR her to do her pre toilet routine and when you see it, take her outside. Then stay there till she does it. It will take a good while but shell soon get into the habit.

 

DOnt expect overnight results. Something like this takes a long time to imprint and become habit.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Put her outside at regular intervals, especially when she's just eaten or woken up.

 

Stay with her and when she wees make a big fuss of her:

 

She will probably still have little accidents indoors so put some newspaper by the door and if you catch her weeing pick her up and plonk her on the paper, making a fuss when she wees on the paper. She'll soon get the message.

If you can get her to pee on newspaper or puppy pads, you can gradually move these toward the door and the garden.. when she is searching for somewhere to go, she will look for her scent.

Thanks for the suggestions. We've settled on Molly.

 

Now just got to teach the other Jack Russell not to be so scared of her. It seems to be a size thing and him thinking he's going to hurt her.

If she pee's on a puppy pad or paper, save it and take it outside every time she goes out there, she will soon work out that she is to pee outside. As already said, it will take a few weeks, but she will get there eventually.

 

I have a 20 month old daisy dog, (mixed breed V tiny dog) it took her forever to learn, she still has the odd accident indoors, but only when she get p***ed off with me and she will do it on my foot :lol:

I like the name Molly :thumb:

Our other dogs won't go toilet in the house. I am hoping this will help her.

 

As well as biting me, she likes licking my ears. :lol:

As for biting rather than just mouthing, you have to be firm and say NO! in loud voice to get attention and push her away immediately.

Good if you have another dog and you would see how they handle that with a growl and possibly a bark.

Another way is to squeak or ouch as though hurt, just as they would if hurt or in discomfort. then they associate what they are doing with the noise.

All these things take a bit of time, but learn surprisingly quickly.

The thing is to be consistent in your approach.

Thanks. :) We have puppy training pads down. She doesn't know yet how to "ask" to go outside. Mum told me to put her in the garden after she's woken up.

A good deterrent from bad behaviour is to fill an old washing up bottle or similar with water. If the pup does something wrong, give a quick squirt, and very firmly say no, and it will stop her. Don't make a game of it though as it is meant to deter. When she stops the bad behaviour give lots of praise.

don't just put her outside you have to go with her and stay until she has done what she has to ( if go back in she will want to as well ).

Also take outside after being fed. In fact you have to take them out quite a lot to start with.

Thanks. We do have a bottle somewhere. It's the only thing that seems to stop the other Jack Russell from barking when we go out.

 

We do out with her. We have a pond outside, which she's found.
