Dog Training, Fixation and Cats

Fixation and Cats -
Yelling at your dog or physically handling them when they are in this state will only heighten the excited energy present. Instead…
Use the guttural “Bah!” and clap of hands, I have discussed, as soon as you see your dogs behaviour modify. When their body stiffens and their pupils dilate.
You may need to train your dog to be relatively calm on a lead first in front of cats.
Also work on your ‘Leave’ (see a previous post on instruction) and ‘Stay’ commands.
Some other tips -
Ensure, your dog is sufficiently exercised (see a previous post on exercise requirements). A possible outcome for a dog’s unreleased energy is the dog becoming fixated on or obsessed with something.
Dogs in the home environment should not be left to just sit and stare/glare at animals present.
Being in a fixated mode is not normal for a dog and fixation is only recorded in domestic canines…
