How can I stop my Jack Russell from barking and circling my horse when I am taking her to and fro from the stable yard? I have tried locking him in one of the stables whilst leading my horse. The barking is very deafening. It does not bother my horse, but it sure bothers me.
You need to train a jack russell like a police dog. Go to a class that uses a choke collar. It is humane as dogs have thick necks and want to please their masters. Find someone who has trained police dogs to help you get control. When you want control of your dog you can put the lead and choke collar on and have the dog heal, sit and down for good control. Then you can actually allow the dog to get close to the horse without bad behavior.
Sorry, but I have to disagree. Choke collars can easily damage the dog's throat.

However, I do agree with your point about the need for good training - for all dogs.
How old is your dog? Is the dog new to horses?
I own a Jack Russell, too; they're marvelous little dogs but they do need to know who's in charge.
My Jack Russell is 3 years old and his name is Toby. He is very obedient and not a badly behaved dog, but this is the only time he more or less plays up. He has been around horses since he was a puppy. I have had several Jacks and he is my first male dog.

I'm in the process of training my four-month-old puppy. He is quite unruly and hyperactive, especially when I take him out on walks. I've watched and read numerous videos and books, and a lot of them suggest the use of...
