Hello all, I'm looking for some clarification on house training of puppies I have a 10 weeks old Jack Russell. A friend also has a 10 week old Jack Russell from the same litter. When it comes to house training I have always thought that positive reinforcement is the best way to house train a pup. So I take him out often and reward him when he does his business outside in the right place. Obviously being a puppy he still is early in the learning stages so any mistakes I just clean up and carry on as normal. I don't believe in any kind of action against a pup that wee's in the house. My friend believes the best way to prevent them weeing in the house is to have a spray bottle handy and whenever they catch their pup in the act they quickly spray him with the bottle to stop him weeing. I don't really believe this will teach the pup anything other than whenever he wee's he gets sprayed. I believe this will just cause the puppies to be scared of needing to wee and will hide when doing it rather than them going outside to do it because obviously, they don't know the difference between inside and out. Can any clarify if the spraying is a good idea or not? Thanks.
