We have a 3 1/2 month old Jack Russell Terrior. She's very smart and she's already learned the ropes around the house and such but there's one MAJOR problem... potty training! lol Anybody have any great ideas on how to potty train a Jack Russell?

I am with Pagan Mama on this one: What type of human finds it acceptable to demoralize another living creature especially one you consider part of the family?? Small breeds can take up to a year to FULLY housebreak. Some will never get it for one reason or another. The best you can do is make sure they stay on a schedule with food/water and potty breaks. I am an advocate of crate training as it is typically the best tool for most dogs provided they have strong, supportive owners. No water after 5pm..ice cubes are okay if pup appears thirsty. No food or treats after 4pm..no exceptions. Potty breaks within 15 mins. of eating, playing or waking. As soon as pup pottys outside praise and reward are the key to your happiness. Good luck.
