Here is a question from Lauren asking for some suggestions about how to make sure her Boston Terrier stops being too rough with a cat.
She says : “I’m needing some advice for my baby girl Gussie. She is 1.5 years young and picks on her older brother Phoenix the cat (6 years young). When Gussie first joined the family as a puppy, I expected my cat (male) to put her in her place, but that doesn’t happen. Poor guy is going bald in spots from Gussie wrestling with her. Phoenix doesn’t run away and will instigate it on occasions too. Phoenix will even try to cuddle her when sleeping (so I know he can’t completely hate her), but she too excited to play when he comes around. The main issue I have is getting Gussie to listen and stop when it becomes too rough. She gets her eyes set on her brother and nothing else matters in the world. Not even treats or toys. I’m a little lost on figuring out how to nip this behavior for good.”
Does anyone have any suggestions, experiences or recommendations? Please SHARE!
This is Gussie 🙂
