    I’m having such a hard time potty training my 5 month off Raggle…. his name is Major. He’s very active at all times. However he doesn’t listen very well on command and potty training is a nightmare. I have him on a bathroom schedule and routine but he just doesn’t get it… he also NEVER barks which is strange any suggestions?

      I have a now 5 month old Raggle, took him in at 12 weeks, tried the potty pads (don’t work) and ended up closing off all bedrooms to house, then taking him outside to “go potty” in our fenced in yard. We took him out every 4 hours, regularly, saying ‘go potty’ numerous times and stayed out with him til he did go. When he went outside, we’d praise him as he came in with ‘good boy’s’. It took a few weeks, but now he scratched on the glass patio door when he needs to go out, only had a couple accidents in the middle of the night. It took awhile for his bladder to mature, but now he’s doing great. We make sure we only have about 5 hours of timeframe between ‘go potty’ times.

      I’ve had my raggle for almost a year now and he is about 14 months old… Does anybody know at what age they calm down? Because he still seems to have as much energy as he did the day I brought him home! When we first got him I literally thought, “What did I do???” about 100 times a day. He was so naughty… And I mean NAUGHTY… You have to be a patient person to own a Raggle. It took about 6 months to get him to stop peeing in the house – he will go poop outside MOST of the time but sometimes he still goes and poops in the corner on the kitchen floor. when he goes outside to play sometimes he doesn’t want to come back in and is so stubborn he will only listen to my husband because he’s not intimidated by me. We’ve taught him to do tricks and he’s extremely intelligent but he just has so much energy that he can’t contain it sometimes… like he doesn’t know what to do with all his energy. The only thing that truly worries me is that sometimes he finds ways of sneaking under the fence (no matter how good we fix the holes he still finds a way) and if my husband is not home he will not listen to me to come back and I’m afraid he might dart into the street. So now he can only go outside when my husband is there. 🙁 Any suggestions?

      The only advice I can give you is to BE PATIENT. I honestly almost gave up on my raggle Ozzy because he was SO naughty. BUT after about 6 months of consistently working with him, over day he just FINALLY got it. Now when he has to go potty he’ll go stand by the back door. But that does not mean that he doesn’t have accidents once in a great while. He also started to learn tricks at about 9 months old they really are very loving sweet affectionate dogs, but you’re right they don’t like to obey is the issue. They’re very STUBBORN and almost act like they don’t “hear” you.

    My dog Rosie is three years old and will be four on January 7th. She has recently been diagnosed with epilepsy. Is on medication and doing much better. She is also gaining a lot of weight. Suggestions on dog foods?

    • admin says:

      Hi Rachael,
      While there is no specific dog food for dogs with epilepsy or seizures, changing their diet might help. Your vet may prescribe some dog foods for other conditions that could help dogs with epilepsy. However, these prescription foods typically work on a case-by-case basis. Many vets and nutritionists recommend homemade or raw dog food for lowering the carbohydrate level in the diet. If you feed your dog kibble, you can add fresh meat like lamb, pork, and beef that will provide her with amino acids such as l-carnitine and l-taurine. Another amino acid, like dimethylglycine, helps in improving memory, immune system, and reducing the rate of seizures.

    I was never a dog person until my future dog (whose name is Puppy), as a pup, fell asleep and dreamed on me a week after being at my place, and i fell helplessly for him. He is basically my son and i can’t imagine anything without him.
    He is a Raggle but his mom has a little less than half chihuahua in her… would that help his life expectancy to be increase even a little?? I want him to live as long as me and can’t imagine ever living without him and want to help this.

    I would just like to say the rat terrier beagle pictured above with the black and white skull and bone dog dish behind him was my little man Rocket. He passed away in March of this year 2018 he was 10years old he passed away from diabetes. He would have been 11 in July of this year 2018. My dad and I adopted him when he was 1year old from the spca of Anne Arundel county Maryland. My poor little man had 3 owners in his first year of life and we were his 4th. He had his owners when he was a puppy then he had another owner who said he was to energetic and the other owner said he was to loving. But my Rocket was an amazing dog. He was stubborn on his first day of training he got kicked out for barking to much and was told to come back early the next time and he did wonderful his trainer still talks about him today. I love and miss my Rat terrier beagle mix. It made my day to see his picture on here and I hope it does not get taken down because I will keep visiting this website to just look at this picture 🙂

    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?

    • admin says:

      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?

    • Michelle says:

      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.
