Customer Comment

Ed and Cindy,

I just wanted to take a minute to express my gratification. I bought a GSD many years ago. I bought a book (before the web) on training dogs and went at it. I don't know if it was me or the dog but he was one of the best dogs I have ever owned. He listened very well. There were a couple things he did that I didn't like though. He was kinda dog aggressive at times in his younger age. I had to put him down about 5 years ago. He was 13 and just old and miserable. It was very hard for me to do because he was truly my best friend. We did everything together. I am a police officer and I have started working night shift. I have been tossing around the idea of getting another GSD for a while and being that I started working night shift and wanted my wife to feel safe I started looking long and hard to find the one I wanted. Well, I found him.

I am so excited about the new puppy and wanted to do everything right. I called a trainer to my house to fix a couple small problems we have with my wife's Pomeranian because I don't want the shepherd to pick up on them. She made the mistake of telling me about your website. I'M GLAD SHE DID!! I have been all over the site many times. I have ordered DVDs and training equipment and I am very sure I will be ordering more in the near future. I can't wait to use the knowledge I have aquired already! This is one of the best resources I have ever seen. I'm hooked on feeding raw and "Marker Training."

I'm sure you get many emails and I do apologize for yet another one but in my field of work an "at-a-boy" is hard to come by so whenever possible I like to tell people they are doing a great job.

Please keep up the good work and I assure you I will be around for years to come!!


Leerburg Q&A

This Week's Featured
Question & Answers

Question: How do I break my dog's habit of chasing my one stupid cat around the house? Would a pinch or ecollar be helpful?

Cindy,

My 4 year old GSD does not bother with two of my three cats. They are smart enough to know that he's a big goof ball, so they let him lick them a few times until he gets bored and walks away. He likes all the cats, BUT the third cat is too damn stupid to realize the dog is just being playful. He's not afraid of the dog, he just doesn't want to be bothered. Of course, the dog's natural prey drive kicks in when the cat runs from him. The dog would NEVER harm any of the cats, but how do I break the habit of him chasing the one stupid cat around the house? I have pinch collars, leashes and an e-collar. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Answer:

Hi,

I would use the ecollar to interrupt him the MOMENT he even looks at the cat.

I would also say, never say never, when it comes to cats and dogs. We recently got a call from a customer who had a 4 year old GSD that was raised with all their cats and it killed one of them right in front of the family. They were horrified, understandably. I think what happened is the cat accidentally hurt the dog while they were wrestling around and the dog simply reacted reflexively. When cats run, even dogs that are friendly to cats can change their feeling to something that may end badly for the cat. I would definitely correct this.

I hope this helps.
