If you decide to use the umbilical cord method you might want to put a sod bed on your patio. That way you can rush Jax outside and he can go on the grass, just as he would when he's on a walk. I've seen them at Bosley's Pet Food & Supplies. But I suppose if you're the handy type, you could make one for yourself.
Otherwise, welcome to the wonderful world of Jack Russell Terriers
They are wonderfully intellegent dogs, and stuborn (according to my MIL, who used to raise then in New Zealand). Good luck, it sounds like Jax will keep you hopping for a few years yet!
