Beating up on cat
Vader has had an obsession with cats since the day we brought him home, the problem being I have a non-confrontational cat who won't stick up for himself. It's not merely him seeing a cat running or playing and wanting to chase them down, if he knows a cat is somewhere in the area he will seek them out. His training classes are at a barn and the barn cats have even smacked him with their claws and it's done nothing to deter his obsession.
Does anyone have suggestions for what to do to deter him from going after them? He isn't aggressive with them but plays too rough since he's so much bigger than them and tries to play with them like he would another dog.
I'm out of ideas short of covering the cat in Pepto since that is the only thing he won't lick. Help!
