    You can also teach dogs not to chase cats and this should have been done very early on, as a puppy. 1000 times easier. Is it due to the cats inside that your dog isn't allowed in? It shouldn't be hard to teach your dog, "On your bed". If your dog sleeps quietly inside, you will have a much better relationship, with it and it won't start barking early. You could start with a crate in the house and regularly taken on lead, outside, for wees, etc. Make sure you get a large enough size for comfort, to stand and turn around and change position, full size.

    Surely you can reason with your mother and point out that you are both living with far greater inconvenience, now. If she knows to go in her bed, and she has a water bowl and you give her a loo break, last thing, before you go to sleep, she'll be no trouble and as she gets older, you won't have to lock the door, just tell her, "Go to bed". See if you can find a dog rescuer, locally, that has cats, and teaches the dogs to behave with them. You can explain your problem and at least donate the same amount of money to her/him, as you spent on that collar.

    Oh. I wouldn't use a zap collar and wouldn't waste my money on it.
    My mum has obsessive compulsive disorder.... So no i can't really. lol. She is obsessed with fleas and fur and cleanliness.

    Can't you get her to get treatment? Doesn't she know it's far healthier, especially with children, to have contact with dirt, fur, feathers, etc? You're not rolling in dog poo. I was going to say, if she works, I'd be bringing in the dog for as much of the day as possible, if there's a bit of hair, etc, tell her it must have been on your clothes, let her get used to it, then 12 months later, tell her the dogs inside, 6 hours a day, and she hasn't imploded and no one has a swollen face and her decision is irrational. Is it that she doesn't like cleaning, or can't stop? If she can't stop, you could rent her out. Sorry. I'm being mean, here, and my black sense of humour is showing. I could really do with a cleaning visit, and if she did my place, she'd have the second choice of treatment, for obsessives, flooding... sorry black humour day, apparently, and it's only 6ish a m.

    I have a mate with OCD, she does my larder for me. It drives her nuts that im so disorganised, and she feels 'soothed' by completing the task.

    Lol... I like your humor. And no she is so bad i can't even wash my dog inside. She cleans the bathroom 4 times afterwards till the smell of cleaning chemicals is so over powering that that is all you can smell. Thats just how she has always been.
