: i am desperate!!!!! my jack russel is constantly urinating in the house. she is 2 years old. how hard is it to try and crate train her at this age? im at my wits end!!!! thank you


The first thing you should do is get her checked out by a vet if you haven't already. At this age she should be totally housebroken if she is getting enough potty times.

She could have a medical condition like a bladder infection that would make her soil indoors.

Have that checked out first, if she's okay then it's never too late to crate train.

I suggest you get a copy of the housebreaking book by Shirlee Kalstone that we recommend.

I am providing you a link to our recommended books.
