Someone needs to alpha roll those ferrets and show them who's boss.

I treat it like resource guarding, just with myself as the resource. You get what you want when you behave appropriately. Try "guarding" me (blocking the other dogs, using eyes, whatever) and your social interaction has just calmly but abruptly ended. Behave nicely and be loved upon.

Unless we're training in which I use that jealousy to increase the watching dogs' desire to work. Both Kim and Webby took their agility up a notch after watching Mira work with her usual verve... *evil laugh*

I pretty much do what Shai described.
Kailey behaved the same way around Schaffer, so I taught her that whenever Schaffer is getting one-on-one attention, it's best to go to a bed or the sofa and lay down. She got cookies for going away and after a several seconds to a couple minutes, I'd call her to me and give her attention.
Or you can try Milan's way of dealing with resource guarding. Make sure the dog knows the resource is yours, and when your dog gets cheeky, (in this case, getting pushy for the attention) grab it by the snout or scruff. Make sure to scare your dog. If it bites you, you're not instilling enough fear and respect.
