Hi all,
We have a seven month old Jack Russell Terrier. She still relieves herself inside. Usually, it's by the front door, so we know that she knows the general area to go to, but she'll also go just about anywhere and we'll find surprises all over the house.
We have tried:
Taking her out every hour (if she doesn't go, take her out every five minutes until she does).
Tethering her to us (that wouldn't work...she would just go wherever she was tethered).
Kennelling (goes in her kennel - even though it's relatively small).

For the last week, we've been sticking her nose in her accidents - we know it shouldn't be done, but my wife had two dogs growing up that never had these problems and that's how they were taught, so as a desperate last resort, that's what we're trying.
We're incredibly frustrated and don't know what else to do. She's been checked out fine at the vet, so there isn't anything medically wrong with her.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If she's having accidents all over the house, you can't let her have access to all over the house. She need to be confined to whatever room a person is in.

Where is she in between? Are her meals scheduled? Is she allowed free water (recommended)?
Tethering her to us (that wouldn't work...she would just go wherever she was tethered).

And what did you DO when that happened?

What kind of kennel? Where did you get her?

Unfortunately, it's not a reasonable approach and you're just making the whole thing repulsive.

How are you positive about that? I have a 10 month old puppy that suffered from some incontinence. Medication has stopped it completely. Is your puppy spayed? If so, at what age?
