CANTON — A state Supreme Court judge heard arguments Wednesday whether a South Colton man may continue training animals while his case is litigated.

Jon C. Sabin, owner of Seizure Alert Dogs for Life, sells German shepherds to people with epilepsy, telling them his dogs can alert the customer minutes before a seizure occurs. The price of these dogs ranges from $12,000 to $25,000.

After Mr. Sabin’s customers publicly criticized him for bad business practices, Judge David R. Demarest ordered in April that the business shut down until the allegations are cleared up.

Mr. Sabin’s attorney, David Antonucci of Watertown, said he hopes Judge Demarest will allow Mr. Sabin to continue working as long as he is not soliciting the public.
