Helpful Hints

  • Start training when the puppy comes home for the first time
  • Reward good behavior
  • Teach your terrier to listen to you.
  • Most Importantly-Be consistent!
  • Lots of Exercise is important- at least 60 min a day

Potty Training

  • Designate a potty area outdoors.
  • Guide your dog there to do his business.
  • Heartily praise him when he goes.

The odor left from previous visits to that area will quickly mark it as the place for the pup to do his business.

  • Six- to eight-week-old puppies should be taken outdoors every one to three hours.

Most puppies should be taken out:

  • After waking in the morning
  • After naps
  • After meals
  • After playing or training
  • After being left alone
  • Immediately before being put to bed

Some of the information above were pulled from the Iams website.

Jack Russells are difficult to train and take lots of patience. Just remember to breath and stay calm.

Mistakes May Occur

Left on his own, the untrained puppy is very likely to make a mistake. Close supervision is a very important part of training. Do not consider your puppy housetrained until he has gone at least four consecutive weeks without pottying in the house. For older dogs, this period should be even longer. Until then:
  • Your puppy should constantly be in your sight.
  • Baby gates can be helpful to control movement throughout the house and to aid supervision.
  • Keep them in the crate when unsupervised.
When you’re away from home, sleeping or if you’re just too busy to closely monitor your pet's activities, confine him to a small, safe area in the home. - Maggie is a Jack Russell Terrier that can add, subract, multiply, etc. and gives her answer by moving her paw the correct number of times
