    I am disable and I am TRYING to train my 10 month old either Jack-a-Be or Reagle to be my service animal. My question is how do you keep their attention on you and not others or other things?

      Hi Sandra,
      You may teach your Jack-A-Bee or Raggle to look at you by setting up a pattern, getting them to turn their attention away from you, and then looking back again. When they turn back, mark the moment using a clicker and immediately reward them. Assemble some fingernail-sized treats and bring the dogs to a quiet place in your house. Show them a treat and toss it right behind them or to their side. After they eat, they will probably look for more and then they will turn toward you. When they do, mark with a click and feed them a treat. Practice the pattern 5-10 times.

    I am having difficulty training my 6 month old Raggle puppy Jaxson. Is there any tips I could use to further train my Raggle?

      The only thing that has worked for us is a shock collar. We never shock unless it is an emergency. However the beep and vibration setting are very successful with our Dexter. He is incredibly belligerent but very loving. The collar simply puts a break in their behavior and helps them calm down. We’ve tried everything with him. It’s the only thing that works.
