Our 4 month old APBT hates our 1 rescue cat.We have 2 cats and our sweet Eliza who chases and barks @ our rescue cat but not our pet cat Max.They were both here before the puppy.Max and the puppy are fine together max is 5 and Punn is closer to 7.Eliza doesnt ever attack Punn just chases and barks and of course Punn gives a reaction.Any suggestions?
Keep Eliza on a leash at all times so you can give her instant correction any time she tries to go after the cats. She needs to learn the behavior is unacceptable and that the cats are not toys, the leash is the safest and easiest way to do that. As for the cats, they need to have places where they can go where they don't have to worry about being chased by the rambunctious puppy.
I think if you continue to allow her to chase the cats, this is a recipe for disaster, and that her playful exuberance might result in the cat's death.
Never trust a tall dwarf... he's lying about something.
