Get rid of the cats
I agree 100%, hes in play mode. When he barks the cats run, he thinks thats pretty cool!! Those cats are great fun for a puppy. I expect when he gets a little older he will learn to ignor the cats. I wouldnt do the water gun either. You could try, when he starts barking at the cats put him in his crate for 15 minutes. Do it everytime. He'll equate barking to going into the crate and stop.Originally Posted By: littledmcsquirting him with water gun will make him afraid of the water.
the cats are egging him on by running away. He's a puppy and cats are toys to him that move, hopefully he'll grow out of it
Maybe hire a trainer they have great ideas
I don't think anyone was serious about telling you to get rid of your cats. I adore cats too and couldn't live without at least one in the house. We have had two cats at two different times with Sean. Our former cat, Neeko, who has passed away was not very tolerant of Sean so they merely co-existed. But our present cat, Neely, thinks she is a dog.Originally Posted By: nysirkgetting rid of the cats is not an option they are all rescues and i love them the one was a Ferrel kitten and she can actully sit and down on command theres no way im getting rid of her
