Thread: Training Not to Chase Smaller Animals

    Thats great. Too bad about the harness not working for you.
    It works wonders on my friends dog.

    Another idea, not about the pulling, but how she managed to sneak up on your next door neighbors cat is perhaps you can put a bell on his collar. I know they're really meant for cats but I have a puppy and two cats aswell. BJ put him in his place but with our other cat, Moki, Kobee can't get any where near him because as soon as Moki hears the bell he's off.

    I agree, pain shouldn't be used to correct behaviour (although I don't have a problem with check chains if used correctly). This is not addressing the problem just causing the dog to avoid, rather than be good because he/she knows they will get a reward.

    Have you tried a "halti "lead? for walking the pressure is along the nose and there is far greater control and response.

    In terms of chasing small animals i sugest you consult a proffesional trainer/behaviourist.

    Are there any greyhound rehabilitaion people out there to help with this bub?

    Sorry i spent AGES writtting a response but it disapeared!! Gremlins in my computer!

    Dogs with a good healthy level of drive are the only way to go for me.Make use of the dogs drive as when a Dog is in drive,he or she are very receptive.

    You need to provide the dog an outlet to express drive.You the owner need to be the dogs key to drive satisfaction. Tony

    Hi Sharoo,

    You are a wonderful dog owner

    What area do you live in? K9 Force Professional Dog Training & Behaviour Consultancy is an awsome training/behavioural org and they have one day handling seminars in many areas.

    It will be certainly worth the effort to attend a seminar, and you get to take Kimba with you!

    Hi Tony,

    What practical, hands on, constructive suggestions and or training do you suggest in this case? or would you prefer under the circumstances to sugest a proffesional behaviouralist?
