My Jack Russell Is a little over 6 weeks old , and im trying to train her [Juicy] to come, sit,...
etc do you have any suggestions on the best way to do that ? and also , is "play bitting" a huge problem ?
Allowing play biting is encouraging aggressive play, and can be an issue later in life, especially if you have kids. Dogs naturally play more aggressively than our fur-less selves usually like, so they have to be taught that they can't play that way with humans.
As for training, the most effective method I've found is positive reinforcement. That is, reward with a treat or praise whenever your puppy does what is required of her. For sitting, tell her to sit while placing a hand holding a treat close to her head and a little above it, luring her into the desired position. As soon as she sits, give her the treat. For come, start only about a step away and tell her to come while holding a treat, and give it to her as soon as she walks forward in response. Once she understands that, move further and further away. Most dogs don't take very many repetitions before they understand the connection between the action and the treat. Remember to only say the command once, if it's repeated then dogs tend to think they can ignore it the first couple of times it's said and still get their treat when they get around to listening to you. Use her name along with every command so she knows you want her attention.
i too have a jack russel pup and have struggled training him.... I'm no expert but recently read on the net that these dogs are not called 'little napoleans' for nothing haha... my pup is stubborn i've never come across that in a dog!!!!! however he does respond really well to praise and small treats when he does sit.
Sitting wasnt a problem for me but actually getting him to come to me without a half an hour cat and mouse chase is! also he barks and barks and I have found toilet training really hard... apparently crate training is good for these cute littl monkeys

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.

I take good care of my little Pom, Marvin. However, I had kept his collar on him at all times. He was homeless for several weeks. When SPCA rescued him from the pound he was very sick and timid. The vet had to shave him because his hair was so matted. I adopted Marvin and we bonded quickly....
