Hi yall. I got a question that I am hoping someone with a little more experience with dogs will be able to help me out with. Heres a little bit of the back story so you know where i am comming from. My wife had our Lab before we met, and she had already had him trained for birds. Well, shortly after we moved in together she found this cat outside the appartment on the window ledge. She brings the thing in and decides to keep it. She already has 2 more so whats a third right? Well, about the week later the cat goes into heat and procedes to leave blood all over the house one day when we are at work. Our lab is unfixed, and he was going nuts in his crate from the smell when we got home. Since then (2 years and change about) he has, for lack of a better term, gotten stupider and stupider. He shows no interest in birds anymore unless he is tied out for a day or 2 away from that stupid cat, and even then he wont listen to verbal comands and resists the e-collar. Im sure some of the loss in discipline is related to the fact that we cant work him as much any more (down to 3 times a week), but that doesnt account for the complete lack of any sort of common sense when he is in the house around that da** cat. Right now the only thing we can think to do (besides move again and get a house where he can be outside all day) is to get him fixed and hope that helps the situation. If anyone has any thoughts on how to un-stupid him I would be greatful.
