Question:

: Our 4 1/2 year old male JRT is still having accidents in the house at night. We crate trained him as a puppy and he lets us know when he needs to go out during the day, but at night he will go to the bathroom in his room. After he is done he will jump on the door to let us know and then hide under the bed when we come in. He knows what he is doing is wrong but will not stop! Any suggestions?

Hi Celeste,
Frist of all have him checked by your Vet to make sure that there is no medical problem. Then go back to Crating and see if that helps, I don't let my 4 1/2 month old puppies have freedom in a room and all dogs are crated at night, except for the ones that are in the bed with me.

Just remember that most Jack Russells are NOT housebroken untill they reach a year in age, and your puppy has a long way to go untill then. Don't expect miracles they just aren't going to happen and your pup needs to be crated at night and if he can't hold it you may have to get up and let him go outside during the night.
Best
