I just got a female JR 40 days old. I've been told not to let her out until she has all her vaccinations(2 more months), so how do I go about potty training? Is she even old enough to understand?

40 days old..that is less than 6 weeks old. That is very young. If they have had their first shots, they should be fine, unless you have had a problem with parvo in your area. You can start potty training, but the bladder is very weak at that age, so you will be going outside alot!! I never sell puppies before 8 weeks of age, which is recommend. Just don't leave your puppy outside unattended, for it can get into trouble at that age and get into stuff that could be bad. Your jack russell may understand, but depends on how smart she is..good luck!!
