Hi, I am new here & desperately need some help. I have a four month old Jack Russell puppy(female) & I am having a very hard time house training her. For instance, I took her out last night before bed to do her businesses & no problem with the pee. I could tell she needed to do poo but she kept running back to the door so I took her in. I could still tell she needed to do poo so I took her out again - this happened three more times. I took her in the house again & we were in approx. 3 minutes & she did poo. This happened again this morning & quite regularly. I sure do need some help. Thank you. Katherine

Hi, and welcome. You may want to check out the post a couple of lines down, about potty training and anxiety, she is having pretty much the same problem with her Jack Russell, though hers is slightly younger. Maybe it just takes them longer to learn to control the poo? I don't have any experience with them, I am just guessing.
